    Hi,
    Im looking to possibly replace my n/s/f fog lamp with an air duct for an enclosed induction kit. I have a m-tech bumper, is their any direct aftermarket replacements or do i have to bodge a universal duct in?

    If you look at the front of your air box you will notice that there is a funnel that draws air from the front grill.

    A cold air intake is alright if you get a good one as is a panel filter, if you want the roar then get a induction kit

    I have always been off the opinion that BMW put a lot of thought into their designs and that it would be difficult to better their engineers. I'd be concerned of driving through puddles/small floods if I relocated the air intake that low down.

    Personally, i'd probably just debaffle the airbox. If you like noise have you done the golf-tee mod to the exhaust valve yet?

    Cheers

    Ian

    Totally agree with Ian S about the puddles. Worst thing happens and you'd get a nice bit of hydrolock. Just what the doctor ordered!! Dont put it too low.
