How much more trimming would a 7.5" IC need over the 7" one? If its almost the same, then it is decided.

Also, the original M front bumper has this grid with closed parts left and right, see:

Limiting incoming air by a good amount i guess. Is there an OEM part without the closed parts? In the parts calatog I found:

51118055756 (with some kind of pedestrian cover/protection)

Would that one fit or do you recommend an aftermarket part?
I cannot comment on the 7.5 because I have never installed one. Here are some photos of the same 7 inch intercooler when installed on my e92 Msport.
