Do you happen to have pictures of how the oil cooler is mounted and how it connects to the oem oil cooler? This seems to be a good product that will cool down the motor as much as possible. And how will the added oil cooler affect the oil? (Need to top off the oil, how much more oil is needed per oil change, etc. )

I really hope thats not where it's mounted. Cause if you look at the installed picture on page 1, putting the oil cooler right on top will have it right behind the front bumper reinforcement which will recieve no cool air. :/

This is true, but there is still some air flow there, better than nothing, and for the price it seems pretty damn good.

Please email me if you have any questions regarding the FMIC. I can send you detailed pictures of the install. You shouldn't need more oil. We sold out of the first batch, cp-e tells me that they just got a few more in that are also ready to ship.

Intro pricing goes till the end of this month. $860 shipped.

Comparable to all the available options. They've all performed well under warmer conditions. Our unit works with the OEM O/C as an auxiliary cooler.

Thanks!

Is there an option without the oil cooler yet? I am new to the boards and the 335i, so I don't even know if I have an OE oil cooler.
