435I Xdrive Convertible Cold Air Intake

Is anyone aware of what cold air intake's will work with the 435 convertible without having to remove or modify the support brace? I was looking into Dinan's intake and it will not fill without removing the brace, at least that is what im told. AFE makes one that will fit, but it says its not compatible with the sport package that I have.

Thanks,

Mike

I installed the MPPK one without much trouble - though I don't think that one makes a lot of difference.

Do you think removing the brace would be a major PITA? If I remember right, they're bolted in up on top of everything else, so you wouldn't be removing a lot of other stuff to do it.

Or do they mean removing the brace permanently? That doesn't seem like a good idea.

I don't think it would be a major pain, but id rather not remove anything if possible. I would guess someone would come out with something in the near future. Im a little surprised Dinan hasn't got it done yet.
