VetaTre that is a a beautiful looking piece of equipment. Does this obviate the need fora catch can? Also, I have a 335d -- would it take the same part as the x35d? Thnaks, James

James,

if you follow the link, you will see where that plate is used. It allows you to install a catch can or an oil separator; it removes the stock valve so whatever you install will need a valve. Follow the links and may more sense.

As far as fitment to the 335d, it will definitely bolt to the valve cover; however the elbow points backward because of the position where I installed the oil separator in the X5. I'm entirely unsure on where the separator would fit in the 335d.

You may want to take a look at where it can be positioned first and then decide if the elbow facing backwards work for you. If it doesn't you can buy the plate alone and then weld the elbow positioned however you'd like.
