The COBB Front Mount Intercooler (FMIC) for your BMW is the easiest way to drastically improve power when coupled with tuning from the Accessport. Even when stock, the factory FMIC can be overwhelmed with heatsoak. By using a 60% larger core with a unique stepped design, your BMW will come alive with the new-found colder charge air. This FMIC also requires no modification to the car for an easy installation with the included custom silicone adapters. Factory-like fitment for the 2007-2011 3-Series sedan, 2008-13 3-Series Coupe, and 2008+ 1-Series. To take full advantage of the FMIC on your Accessport, just go to Tune, Change Map, and select the appropriate Stage 1+ or Stage 2+ map for your driving style.

Will NOT fit DCT transmission vehicles.


The COBB FMIC is a direct replacement improvement and the easiest modification to make for a drastic increase in cooling and power. Includes everything needed to install and requires no bumper modifications.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excelllent product I put this off long enough as my last mod. I read a few bad reviews about issues with it and bad fitment etc but I am here to tell you I did this alone in my garage with only a floor jack. Yes I recommend removing the front bumper but it’s not that hard. Make sure you slide the elbow inside the coupling just the right amount to allow for proper fit on the charge pipe end. That is the only thing I see could have been added to the installation manual. After installation I upgraded my tune of course and let me tell you it was a different car. Lit the tires up about 3/4 of 2nd gear and pulls like a train. Thanks COBB for a great product

Rated 2 out of 5 by from THE HARDEST INSTALL POSSIBLE GOOD LUCK If you want to pay someone 400$ to install this product more power to you but this was the hardest thing me and my friend have ever put inside a car. First off here is a quote directly from the cobb website " Includes everything needed to install and requires no bumper modifications." I had to butcher the inside of my front bumper just to be able to get the intercooler to fit. Then the pipes from cobb are literally an inch too short. There is no way to be able to get them to fit perfectly, had to buy another pipe just to get the intercooler to connect to the car. If you have the patience of Ghandi then by all means have fun connecting and botching your BMW for 15 hours straight. I would rather take a wrench to the face then try to install this myself again. It's a good quality intercooler but I physically cannot understand how the makers of an aftermarket product specifically made for BMW didn't make the piping long enough to connect perfectly. Will never buy a Cobb product again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great power and build quality. Bought this about a month ago. Great build quality and after a tune it's great. The instructions provided where easy to follow. Only complaint would be from the turbo outlet to the intake intercooler the rubber connector could have been 1/2 inch or 3/4 inch longer to allow better connection. I've had to reattach once after high psi blew off the connection.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful product, world class support! Received my FMIC through internal shipping to Germany. Followed all the installation instructions up to installing the FMIC itself. Great instructions that were accurate easy to follow. Discovered some shipping damage to my FMIC and had to stop. Regardless, the product is a work of art. The welding work specifically is top notch!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional workmanship Cobb products are a thing of beauty. Handcrafted and as my mechanic said "good product". Might you pay a bit more? Maybe. But it's worth the extra dime.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cooler temperatures, smooth power! I have an M3 replica bumper and was concerned about fitment. The shop told me they didn't even have to take the bumper off to install it. From the front it looks amazing, COBB never disappoints. I have noticed that the temps are running cooler now which is great and the power feels very smooth.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Such a great boost! Was so excited when this came in the mail..Now that it's installed, it's incredible. The car pulls so much harder now and is so noticeably faster. Came so quickly too...ordered it and probably 2 days later it was at my door ready to be installed. Worth every penny, thanks COBB!
