Cosmos Cold Air Intake fitment question

Will a Cosmos CAI fit an e36 that has headlight washers?
What about DJ Auto headlights?

Other than relocating a horn, are there any other issues to worry about?

Mine fit fine even though I have the headlight washers, not sure about the DJ Autos but I am pretty sure it should...

Other than relocating the horn it is just all about getting the right angle, but not too hard, jack it up and get the front wheel off and get the wheel liner out of the way and you should be able to figure it out. I cut a flap in my brake duct to allow more air in there but you dont have to...

I have Cosmos with DJ autos. I removed the brake duct altogether and relocated the horn. No fitment issues and i didnt not have to pull the fender liner for install.

Did you have to remove the brake duct, or did you do it to get the air to the intake instead of the brake?

The brake duct kinda interfered with the filter.

was sliding the filter up the intake not an option?

I know there's probably only about 2 inches or so that you can do that without the tube pressing up against the filter, at which point, you lose more than half of the filter's surface area...

curious because I don't want to have to remove a brake duct for this intake

The silicone pipe is a set length with a chunk of pvc in the end that the filter slips over. In all honestly you can achieve what you are looking to get just by using a generic short ram pipe and a K&N filter on the end at a fraction of the cost.

^^^ but wouldn't that be higher up in the engine compartment? the lower the intake, the lower the air temperature, no?

No you can get a pipe the same length as the Cosmos one. Any generic short ram for civic etc will be about the same length and then you can cut your few inches off the bottom to avoid hitting the brake duct.
