I don't have AC on my car but cannot see that being an issue. You do have to cut two holes in the plastic inner wheel well (a 4" hole saw just zips through). I was able to fit the ducts without any surgery to the fron spoiler. This is a totally reversible procedure, so if I wanted to remove them and replace my fog lights I could, no problem.

Roops.


Any cutting or bending required to fit in the ducts? Did it interfer with your a/c compressor or did you remove it?

Dear all,

Recently, after several sets of disks, I decided to install the Bimmerworld Brake Duct and backing plate kit.

For any of you who do track days on a regular basis I would strongly recommend this mod.

The ducts can be attached to the brackets that support the fog lights and the hoses, once attached, do not foul the wheels.

I re-installed my road pads this last weekend and inspected my track pads and disks. They hardly look used at all, the disks do not have any of the tell tale blueing, which indicates overheating. The pads look like they have just been run in. At the track the brakes performed superbly, no fade, no judder, just great strong brakes.

This is a top mod. for the track day junkies out there.

Roops.
