I just cut a hole last night for my universal transmitter and it got me thinking, what else have you done to your car with a dremel?

There is another post about a new M5 owner who took his dremel to the fog light bezels and cut out the plastic so air can move through it freely. I'm definately going to do that to my car....

I used my Dremmel to cut out the little squares on the black mesh grille to open up the brake cooling ducts. Then I installed euro duct work behind the grille to hook it all up. Very stealthy--no sink drain look.

I was just about to do this very same thing. :M5thumbs:

Which bit did you use?

I cant answer for him, but I can for myself.

I always use the wrong one first. Keeps me humble.

I drilled a pilot hole in each of the little squares to start and then drilled a larger hole with the largest drill bit I had (about 3/8 inch). Then I used the semi-tapered Dremmel grinding bit which allowed me to get pretty well into the square corners--they are not perfectly square, but very close. You may have to reach behind the grille after grinding and scrape off some of the material when you are done as some will adhere to the edges of each hole after grinding. I just used my hand and rubbed it all off when I put the euro duct work in behind the grille. As I mentioned, it's very stealthy and has worked wonders for brake cooling at the track.
