Nice. I bet that freaks out the tech when you service your car.

I'd have spent that money on the m3 strut and get looks + performance.

Also, looks like a pain to get to the brake reservoir now.

Better for those that has JB3, since you need to get into the ECU to change the chip?

Had to bring up a old thread since im going to be doing this..

Did everything fit into place with no modification?
Looks like everything fit perfect. I just see a gap under the microfilters exposing the white ECU cover, is that a gap or how its suppose to be?

Then strip your interior... rear seat delete, get racing buckets, remove door cards, etc. Oh, what's that? You won't?

Hey buddy,

There's a cover you are supposed to buy that fills that gap. There's one for each side. The only modification I had to do was cut back some of the tape on the harness for the pollen sensor so it will reach the location of the sensor location on the M3 cowl.

Thumbs down

pretty dumb, without the profile-gasket and M3 hood, dirt will find his way.

check out this pic, so you will see, gasket and hood are isolating the engine bay...

I just did this swap today. It's pretty awesome.

Pro tip: You don't need to buy the $20 seal, you can just re-use the stock one. It does seem to seal pretty well from stuff getting in from the cowl.

Post modification:

-Access to both DCI filters and intake tubes without removal of cowl
-Access to an OCC if you have one
-Ability to remove engine cover without removing cowl
-Ability to access white ECU box in 1/2 the time
-Ability to clean rear of engine without removing cowl
-You can hear the turbos more clearly
-You shed a few lbs

For under $100, it's a no-brainer for anyone who mods and likes easier access to various components in the engine bay. I guess it's not for everyone.
