Air intake scoops for 550i

Guys,

I bought a sheet metal brake and sheet metal shears a little earlier, so why not put them to use?

I made a template for air intake scoops, and fit them up. A little paint or powder coat and these things would be good to go. And to think RPI charges ~$150 bucks for these things.

Thoughts?

Looks good, but there are reasons why they charge that amount. If your angles are off even a bit you could actually restrict the air flow instead of allowing for more.

I think it's brilliant. How about you make me a pair and let me test me out. I'll pay for shipping. Wash say bud

Nice job! Looks pretty good. What color are you going to powdercoat it?
