The installing part was a bit hard cuz you have to cut all the plastic in the front then do some custom piping and brackets took about 3Hours but its worth it

I would have put some mesh or something between the FMIC and the bumper... it looks a little too ricey. Otherwise, grats on the upgrade!

There's some good data on N54 tech showing great drops in IAT's with this FMIC vs Stock. Though I'd try to put mesh or somthing in the front, it just looks to ricey for me sorry. Great IC though

It's a generic core with custom fittings to fit in the 1er. All other intercooler upgrades available for the 1 series are pre-fabbed.
