Interesting... now you can remove your intake without the hassle of taking off the cowl; however, I prefer the look of the original cowl over the M3... makes it look much cleaner.

No real benefit. I did notice that this mod shed a couple pounds off from the original set-up. I was getting tired of the cluttered engine bay, and instead of leaving it all off, I went with this alternative. I personally like it better. Theres alot more room under there now and it looks more open like the engine bay from my previous car which was also an inline-6.

Do you still have to take it off to get to the DME?

Sorry for dumb question.

I think the main benefit is the easier removal/installation of the intake

Yeah i see that now, but i never had trouble removing my intake/blow off valve even with the cabin tray in the way, you just need a stubby flathead screwdriver

Part numbers please?

I'll do this for under 100 bucks, haha.

EDIT: Wait... what happened to all those cables running over the top of the engine? Where were they relocated to?
