I've thought about something like that or the venting like a Mk2. Has to help disapate some of the exhaust heat. Never even knew M3s had that vent.

get a lower temp sensor and t-stat sensor. It will bring your temps down a decent amount especially in the south regions http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
