The intakes on the 335 and Z4 are completely different. The reason I spent the $40 bucks for the Z4 is because the intake is perpendicular to the right side of the radiator (as you look face on or drivers side) and that intuitively seemed to call for a scoop which was face on and "scooped" the air towards the intake. I may be all wet but it makes me feel better.
