Yeah, I was going to suggest that you just make your own diff cooler. Sorry about the Rogue seller flaking out, though. Don't really know why people do that... In any regard, they probably do work fairly well, since BMW essentially used the same design on all ///M cars beginning with the E46 onward. I doubt they would've gone through the trouble of making that part if their engineers didn't see a significant drop in temp. Your home-brewed setup should be even better.
