    Ive seen it done on a few E30's where they take out a light and put the end there so it pushes air straight into it.
    if your idea is to use this and no airbox/filter, its a bad one...
    you need some sort of filtration,

    this type of item is for driving air TOO the airfilter

    Might make no difference but if i ran ducting from the intake to the brake cooling bits on de E30 would it make it cold air or would the ducting get warm and make warm air

    i thought you meant you were gonna use the cold air feed, thats it!

    but if your using that and an airfilter , take RYMs advice and use some sort of heatshield otherwise you'll get nothing for your efforts

    well its due to dirt,rain etc

    and no you can't use tights, the kind of suction your engine inlet will produce would only rip them, unless your using Nora Batty's tights

    How about a filter mounted down by my brake ducts?( i think thats what there called)
    Would the rain n stuff just ruin the filter
