    You can find tow hook covers at Turner Motorsport. Sorry, can't help you with the brake ducts though.

      Depends on which ducts you want.

      James at Bimmerworld has the best cooling kit around.

      Tow hook covers are at Turner or Maximillians if you have the part#.

        I got the backing plates from Bimmerworld, then bought ducts and hoses from a local race shop. Luckily, the hoses bolted in where the fogs were without a problem.

          www.bimmerworld.com has awesome ducts, flanges, hoses, and backing plates if you want them.

              I am assembling a kit for myself for a low cost brake duct setup.

              I ordered part 3623black from http://www.pegasusautoracing.com/pdfs/110.pdf for about 17.00 each duct. I went to home depot and bought 3" metal dryer vent tubing, 3" hose clamps and 3" duct connectors, (total cost at HD about 30 bucks).
              I looked at the max operating temp of the hose offered by Pegasus and it was 300 for the cheap stuff and 500 degrees for the expensive stuff.

              The Home Depot tubing is a 425 degree max temp. I plan on running the duct work to the strut tube and cutting a hole in the backing plate with a 3" hole saw and just directing the duct toward the hole.

              Basically this setup has been done by others in the past and should work. I will post results and maybe pictures.

                Sounds like a good idea - sure sounds better then $325 for a brake cooling kit. Please post pics once you are done!

                  I got the genuine tow hook covers from Pacific BMW for $17.28 each plus about $2.50 for 4 clips.

                      No, they were the flat Evo ones.

                          If you were observant you would have realized that those companies' links were cleverly hidden in the "LINKS" page on this site. Magnus, always trying to hide stuff from us. :p :rolling:
