FWIW, I got a hold of AJ and he said I could definitely get the piece for the filter to be on top, but was told the supplied hard plastic intake piping helps produce colder air. And naturally so given its position directly behind the bumper where a fog light would be (cant think of the name of that area, go figure) which in turn, prompted Kubrick to create his shield to help limit the amount of water splashing onto the filter. I dont mind adding the elbow to the top because likely, I would do the same as Kubrick to try and protect the filter thus blocking SOME of the air coming in as well. However, even if it was on top, it would be next to an open vent on the hood. And given a rainy day, I would go with my earlier post of creating a similar guard to put underneath said vent. Dont gotta go too fast in the rain, ya know?[IMG]undefined[/IMG]

From the front, the filter would be to the left of the vent, since the power steering reservoir is almost directly beneath the vent itself. It is possible to kind of create a channel for air to pass directly over to the filter. Would just take some time.
Is that TSM330i old car?

Edit nope.
