i'm not into bling... so i wouldn't do it... the e46m3 has dedicate brake ducts.. you can get CF ducts that are more functional then the stock ones that would route air properly to the brakes if you had the hoses connected to the dust shields. however, they remove your fog lights so its more for the hard core enthusiast then the street blinger...

actually i liek things to make engineering sense: i just want to cut out the plastic and have at least somewhat functional "ducts" ... cuz rihgt now, having "ducts" that are sealed just BOTHERS me -- like nails on a chalkboard -- frmo an engineering perspective.

it's just needlessly increasing drag at no benefit to the brakes.

i'm with you, i don't hugely care about chrome-rimmed intake ducts ... i could take it or leave it, but i want SOME functionality to the brake ducts

either get the original e46m3 fender liner that has the duct hole in it, or go ahead and cut it out with a dremel... you have a duct back there (if its original and not a repair, ie: crashed front end)
