Cant quite figure out the duct work on mtech front bumper

I installed my oem mtech front WITHOUT using the msport ducts. I noticed that when you install the foglights onto the bumper you lose the ducting. Do the msport ducts all work off the center grille?

Take a look below. It helped me, hopefully it'll do the same for you.

I found a thread from 2009 that discussed this and found out that BMW has an OEM fog support that has an open area for air flow to the oil cooler. The part number is 51118043230 as seen on http://realoem.com/bmw/showparts.do?...51&fg=15&hl=34.

This can be ordered from Tischer for $4.91. I highly suggest that you order this if you have a factory oil cooler. Your other option is to take a dremel or razor blade and cut a hole in the fog support supplied by JGMods to allow air flow.

It is ok that the driver side is blocked off as the OEM ducts pulls air from the center opening for the brakes. Here is a picture of the passenger side opening with the OEM fog support. Hopefully this helps you guys out!

That is definitely the part I need. Looking on Realoem I did not see that part when ordering my supports. Thanks.

No problem. If it helps, I bought mine from Turner.

Got it from ecs for $6.28 + the brake ducts for like $24 each. Wanna do this mtech front the right way! I just hope the brake ducts fit around my cxr intercooler.
