Thats a very good setup...

I had this kind of setup on old car..
What kind of protection you have from water - hydrolocking
Do you need "better than stock" hood locks to sustain higher speeds?

The water deal is a non issue. I've driven in pouring rain, washed the car many times, etc. You could raise the hood and take a garden hose to it while the engine is running and not hurt anything. Any water that does get by the filters is just free water injection!

I'm running all the stock hardware including the hood latch and shocks. No problems so far. The hood is a seibon vented carbon hood with the sides painted white. I also don't think that heat soak is an issue with this setup, at least not that the butt dyno can tell. You can really see the heat waves coming out of the vents when sitting still, there's alot of heat coming out of those vents for sure.

The difference in sound between the stock hood and the seibon hood is dramatic.

Congrats! When you guys get it, pm me if you need any tips. It is such a basic install though and should take no more than 20 minutes if you pop off the cowl to get to the rear intake piping clamp.

BMW, with an adaptive ecu, the car will always try to attain a certain A/F even without a tune. The advantage here is the intake will lean you setup and the DME should add fuel to attain its target A/F ratio. Bottom line is that equals more power.

Lol, welcome my friend! It is only $120 or so. Well worth the cost in my opinion my friend. 10 rwhp for that price is a steal!

It doesn't seem to be an issue but you could always do the dual cone setup if you want them isolated.
