Loving the M3 ducts as well. I guess I haven't noticed other M3 replica bumpers on other cars....if people don't put in the fogs, what do they put in there? It certainly can't look as good as this can it?
It's just empty space if you don't use fogs or ducts. You won't notice it from far away, but up close it's pretty bad, you can see the under tray through the hole lol

Wow looks really good! when you installed your front bumper, did the shop do the fog deletes for you? or can you do it after you install it?

Kudos on a great and well thought out install! I'm thinking of doing the same thing to my e90 335. On the oil cooler duct, it seems odd that there would be a gap between the duct and the bumper when it's bolted to the oil cooler since I would presume distance from the oil cooler to the vent in the stock M3 is longer than in a 335 with the M3 rep bumper. Therfore it seems like the M3 vent should be too long for the 335i not too short. Is this not the case?

Ideally I would like to have the duct attached on both ends and I'm trying to get a picture of the geometries involved. Do you have any pics of the install or the duct? If so it would be hugely helpful.

Again, the result looks great!

I don't think it's too short or too long. Even after abit of trimming as in the DIY (search for it), the duct looks like it's sitting towards the center about 1-2" and needs to move toward the outside. Not sure how others did it, but the body shop said there's no way it'll fit if bolted to the oil cooler. I'll try to take some pics tonight and show you how it sits against the oil cooler.

I dont really like the m3 rep on the e92 but this is clean!

The air ducts and the under splitter really makes it though. Love it!

That makes more sense. The oil cooler on the M3 is out further because of the flared wheel arches so the M3 duct would look like its inside if bolted to the cooler. I've been reading every thread I can find on it and I've seen the trimming that you need to do around the radiator shroud, etc. but some pictures would be hugely helpful if you could snap a few.

Does this duct cool the brakes as well or is that a separate duct?

So much cleaner without the foggies and with the lip it just finishes it off perfectly.
