custom oil cooler problem. Fog Light presses against oil cooler. what are my options?

The oil cooler is in the passenger side wheel well.I fitted the oil cooler twice as much as i could before completely installing front bumpeer. once I installed the bumper with all the screws, I notice the oil cooler is touching the foglight, making it push out again the wheel well cover and causing my 19" X 8" wheel to rub when I curve all the way to the left. What are my options? Have any of you guys experienced this ? Btw the oil cooler is a setrab 5107944. I've heard that they make shallower foglight for the e90, mine is a 2007 e92

I believe the cooler measures 11 1/8" X 5.75

Simple solution - relocate the oil cooler to mount behind center lower grille instead.

Lots o' room and it will get better air flow anyway...


No shallower OEM fog for E92 & E90 fog will not work as it is entirely different shape.
