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?

Whats wrong with taking the air feed from where it is being taken from now?

Do you think that id be beter off with a k&n pannel filter in the original airbox or with something like a cda? bearing in mind i do like a bit of induction roar, especialy above 4k!

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

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.

bmw do put alot of thought into their designs, but they still have to answer to an accountant.
i've seen systems that better the M3's original inducton system,
and to be frank, the system designed for my e46 320d is PANTS :jaw-dropping
its on the other side of the engine, sitting in a hot location, and the air filter only gets dirty on one side, because it only gets fed from one side.:mad
i've looked around but nobody can help.
i cant be bothered to BODGE one,
its a BMW not a honda/ford.. ! :lol
bmw's seem to use all the space in that general area

There's a silencer pipe in the airbox?
