FMIC freebie

So this nice 2008 335i is willing to donate this aftermarket FMIC to me for free but I'm afraid it's the much maligned "e-bay intercooler" by what little I can see. Could anyone shed some light on it before I need to tear into the car to find out?

I had an AA fmic on my 135i which is one of the most cutting intercoolers and i decided hpf with my 1m still triming but alot less.


My conclusion take the intercooler get as much cash from it and buy and ETS, HPF, AMS, or HELIX all of them are great intercoolers for the n54. ETS 5" will also be a direct fit

Thanks for the advice M///1rider. I am going to get either a HPF or Helix.
