where do i put my cold air

i just bought a cold air intake and its full length i just put half of it on for now but i cant figure out where exactly im supposed to route the rest of it the only place i can see that it can go it will be really cloe to the alternator and other belts in that area the only othe place i can see that it might be ablr to go is where the horn is mounted right underneath where the stock airbox sits ?????????

What make/model CAI did you get? I just put a CosmoRacing CAI on my 325ic and the filter ends up down behind the drivers fog light and required removal/relocation of the horns.

hey burgundy , i remember you live in canada,,, my advice is wait untill spring to put it in, because if its full lenght like mine your not gonna want it on when its snowing, the CAI filter gets packed with snow, because it will be where the brake duct is normally. when i used to drive my bimmer in the winter, i would switch back and forth my old air box and the CAI for winter/summer weather.

Good catch, Furious.....guess I'm a victim of SoCal tunnelvision. Waiting 'til spring is a great idea.

when you do install it, you have to rotate the horn or move it to make room for the CAI.

tomctx is an unknown quantity at this point
Some times you can bend the mounting for the horn and the filter will fit. If not, you need to relocate the horn to another spot. You probably won't have to mess with the brake duct, but not totally certain about that.
