Fender Louvers idea

Hi Guys, is this achievable?
Exotic louvers on E9X M3 fenders
Louvers, not vents. I've seen those from flossman but its a bit too rugged.
I've seen an S2K do it with 3D printing the louvers to fit.
Any ideas? Thanks!

I've been curious how much pressure/lift difference there is between the two front wheel wells given that the passenger side has a frontal entry for high pressure air (via the trans cooler) and the driver side doesn't...it bothers me...

its offset by air flowing out of the driver's side hood vent. (i'm 1/2 joking)

it would be interesting to put an airflow sensor behind the trans cooler to see what the velocity of the air is. the cooler slows down the air some. someone reported the fender vents helped with dct cooling because the air was being evacuated more freely, and thus accepting more air through the cooler. interesting thoughts and discussion.

I would definitely expect better trans cooling with the fender vents. I actually forgot about the hood vent haha. That's a whole other set of variables with the unsealed intake tracts and whatnot. Gah I need all of the vents!

We need to get ryhary to put pressure sensors in the wheel wells and report back. I think he'd be game.

Yea i've seen those, from Flossman. But i prefer louvers than vents. Vents are very rugged, nice no doubt, and very track inspired. Those from flossman $$$$ too.

N15 definitely serve the function well, but i was hoping for something similar like the Vorsteiner fender for the Huracan
