Anyone running the STETT Cold Air Intake on their 1M?

Hey guys, I'm just wondering if any of you is running the STETT Performance E81-E88 135i Cold Air Intake for your 1M?

I assume it won't fit due to our extra radiator/oil cooler?

Also dyno testing shows that nothing is significantly superior to simple cones open in the engine bay. Any gains by getting cold air are mitigated by the additional effort the turbos must go through to pull the air through extra piping, this additional effort adds heat to the cold air once in the turbine equalizing or increasing IAT's compared to just cones. So skip the expensive intakes, unless you're getting something with a carbon fiber air box to dress up the engine bay, and get the BMS dci for roughly $100 and I think Cpe has a similar option. It's a great mod by the way, the amount of turbo noise the airbox restricts is significant, it's nice to roll down the windows and hear the turbos spool.

The spool noise is very nice.
