does the intercooler for 135i fits in a 128i

I'm a bmw 128i owner and i need some advice. I'm doing a major upgrade on my 128i pretty much done with the aesthetic's and I am on the engine just ordered the supercharger and talked to Bimmer Profesional they gave the ok to put whatever i want cause they can tune it for me. So my question is anybody here did the same MOD i mean N52 engine and installed other bolt on to maximaze the full potential of the engine ?

Not sure myself, while you had them on the line you should have asked BPC these questions regarding IC and whatever things should/ need to be done to complete the project. Looking forward to your FI progression.

I wouldn't bother with the factory intercooler if that's what you meant. The clip connectors would be more trouble that they're worth.

No idea on mounting and such, though. My guess is you'll be hacking away a bit on the bumper and making a few brackets that don't exist on the 128i to hold it in place. The bigger problem might be interference with the radiator or AC condenser, again, no idea, hopefully you don't have to swap out the entire radiator and half the AC parts from a 135i to make room regardless of what intercooler you get. Also keep in mind properly shrouding the intercooler and sealing it to the bumper is very important for proper airflow through it. Air would rather go around the intercooler and radiator (i.e. under your car) than through them if the path is easier.
