      BUT anything is better than blocking the intercooler and drilling into my bumper!!!

      And I've heard/researched that getting the tow hook plate has 2 disadvantages 1. It's to close to the bumper and can scratch 2. People can steal it

      I had a tow hook plate bracket on my 135i and loved it. As for stealing, it's not like it's any more difficult for someone to steal plates by unscrewing a couple screws from a regular plate holder. No one ever messed with mine in the 3 years it was on my car.

      My R had the bumper bracket installed when it arrived at the dealer. I didn't order the car so i obviously didn't get a chance to tell them not to drill the bumper. Oh well. I can live with it.

      Anyone know of a mod friendly dealer in the DC/Balt/Nap triangle area?

      I need to schedule my 90 day check up and I'm concerned that Darcars in Silver Spring would not look kindly on my GIAC tune. They were great to deal with when I bought the car, but I put some feeler questions out about mods when I picked up my plates and the answers I got were not encouraging.

      Hey, there's a company I've heard of by the name of REVO that makes tunes that would work on your car. You should check them out.

      Got the intake installed today. It's a tight fit, but sounds really good. Sorry for the iPhone pic. Install was pretty easy, except for me tightening a hose clamp too tight and I broke the clamp. Drove up the to auto parts store and picked up another clamp and that solved my mistake.
