Has anyone cut the M135i LCI / M140i N/S grill?

Hey All,

Just a quick one... has anyone cut out that closed grill / vent on the front bumper nearside? to match the one on the offside?

Is it worth doing? it would make my OCD settle down but there isnt anything behind that panel, would it at least help brake cooling?

Here is a pic of what i mean... the grill on the lower right.

The ambient air temp sensor is behind that panel.

It also would make no difference to brake cooling. The brake cooling ducts are from the centre grill into the wheel arch liners.

Personally I wouldn’t do it, the other side is the oil cooler. This side would just collect rubbish in the lower engine bay on top of the under tray.
