    Hi am currently fitting an Airtec FMIC and I have gone to fit the bumper and the pipes are hitting the lower part of the grill. I have tried mounting it lower so I can fit the hoses under the fog light housings but the bumper still won't fit? The kits is meant to retain the fogs but I can't see how. Can anyone help?

    Hi dennis_S3,

    I can't offer any help, but I'm interested in this cooler. I'm sure they cannot be too different to the other installs, but can you upload the installation instructions for this cooler please? Don't worry if they are identical to the Forge ones etc.

    Many thanks.

    unfortunately not many people have wasted all that money on an airtec kit, all that money and it fits just like a wellycooler.

    Yeh, I'll second that,
    I bought it thinking the fit would be nice and tidy but in reality it was no better than than the welly cooler (fitment wise) for the price difference although its a great piece of kit I wish I'd gone "WELLY COOLER"
