I say it maybe missing the top half is because as you can see, there are tabs on the end that indicate to me that something clamps to it.

The problem is that the ducts channel air up to the air filter on our original ducts....
BUT on the 1M ducts is only "HALF" of our original duct...

Do i need to cut the top half off the original duct and mold it to the 1M duct or what?

i appreciate it if THE TECH could chime in or ANYONE with this bumper installed could guide me

see pics

pic#1 1M duct temp installed looking at the bumper

pic#2 The tabs of the 1M duct

pic#3 1M duct temp installed

pic#4 looking from behind the bumper. the problem is the duct does not channel air up (missing something?)

pic#5 Original M3 duct

pic#6 1M duct (left) and original duct (right) side by side

pic#7 1M duct (left) and original duct (right) side by side
You wouldn't happen to know the part numbers for the two ducts you purchased would you? One of my ducts was cut too much so I would like to replace it.

Here's mine: http://www.flickr.com/photos/macdidd...7640085303414/

Thanks

I have the Slek Carbon Fiber lip in my garage but scared to put it on. $1200 down the drain if it shatters. Didn't realize it would be so thin!

Looks great! You should upload some shots without such a strong crop, or possibly just a lower focal length.

This was mine from the other weekend, just before I installed my LCIs and painted my hood vents.

Quick question, does the 1M bumper have the same clearance as the stock e92 bumper?
I'm interested in getting this bumper but the last lip I installed (gts style lip) cracked in 2 weeks due to clearance issue. Thoughts?

You know I think it is the same as the MTech maybe slightly lower at mid point but I can't really tell. I think I have a picture of them on the ground side by side somewhere. I'll see if I can find it. But for barebones stock I think it might be lower. Seeing as how most people can fit an OEM aero lip on a stock bumper and still have clearance.

Are you sure your car isn't too low? Mine is pretty low and I scraped my lip from time to time but never cracked it.

Ok not the best picture I know.

Mtech is on the right.
1M is on the left in the bag.

Mtech has a Hamann Rep lip so it's almost as thick as that foam bad under the 1M bumper. Remember this is a Hamann rep so it's thick ass FRP wrapped in real CF. The 1M bumper is shown without a lip. I think the 1M is probably bigger. Or to the point of your question, lower to the ground.

Hope that helps, Silverwolf.

Thanks for the info and the pics. I haven't lowered my car and I'm not sure if the 1st owner did but yeah...the rolling hills in SF got the better of my previous gts style lip despite moving like a snail. I have since been in search for a new bumper/lip that would give me maximum clearance.

Do you mind providing info on where you purchased you 1M lip? Also, what did you do to get the ducts working?
