Can anyone please take a picture of the area at the passenger fog light showing the 2 air ducts..

I think after a recent repair i might have the wrong air ducts installed on my car.

1. they dont sit flush to the fog light grills, rather 1-2inch away
2. oil cooler duct, seems to be blocked. not 50/50 split between brake and oil duct exposure to front grill opening.

Here is a exmaple of where i need a picture from..
You can see in my picture the ducts dont align and reach the grills, there about a inch short.. And the oil cooler duck, closest to the fog light, is basically blocked, the brake duct is more opened.

Did you ever resolve this, mine is the same after a Msport Pre LCI to CLI conversion. looks like the ducts must be different.

Yes i did.. I went back to my shop and they ordered the correct aid ducts..


They fit flught to the front of the bumper/mesh..

The duct is once piece. The lower portion of the duct will be for the brake, and the upper part of the duct will be for the oil cooler.

the duct is one piece and is a 50/50 split for the oil cooler/ brake respectively..

Ill see if i can find a picture.

Here is a pic from a friend of mine who sent me his, when i was trying to see how the M-sport ducts should look...



this is how mine is now, and the duct sits flush and fits perfect.

What is the part number for the right brake air duct? My dealer had me order part 51747891380 but it does not fit with the oil cooler air duct (looks like it is for vehicle without the high speed synchronization package). thanks
