Am I missing anything?
That is the gist of it if you want to use the OEM passenger side coolant reservoir on the driver side. Nothing will be quite as neat as using the 335d coolant reservoir, but this stuff above will get it done with your original reservoir about as nice as it can be expected to be done using a reservoir that was not designed for this side of the engine bay.

As for the harness, I'd almost rather just solder and heat shrink a couple leads though so you can ensure it is routed perfectly to your standards at the exact length need per your route. Fixed length harnesses such as this usually end up with some "slack" at the end which looks a bit less OEM IMO, or worse yet could be too short for the route chosen. Although it would install a bit quicker, considering we are talking only 2 leads I'd personally go the manual route.

On another note now that a charge pipe is available through CP-e (we have a silicone setup in the works as well), I suspect many who are most concerned with fit and finish under the hood will start dumping their OEM passenger side coolant reservoir for the 335d coolant reservoir making most of the stuff above no longer necessary. This said using any scrap metal in the interim to mount of the coolant reservoir would get you by.

We have now completed a coolant reservoir outlet adapter too, which will make plumbing them in a bit easier by not needing the OEM formed angle fittings that typically do not route properly.

In short- you could just wing it using standard home store junk like everyone has been doing for the past year or so until some nicer solutions come about in the near future... but this stuff will get it done nicely too using the OEM passenger side coolant reservoir.

Yes, great points. In fact, since I posted the above Rob I decided::

-Order VRSF new CP (ETA august) that will allow for 335d reservoir
-Order RB's 335d kit (ETA ????) w/ outlet adapter
-Order RB PCV vent hose w/ extension
-Order RB single filter dual silicone inlets

This way it's not as much of a home depot hack job & will clean things up.

Let me know. We are still selling them at the special price but they are sold out at the moment pending the arrival of one of the CNC adapters, however we should be back shipping mid-late next week.

Has anyone got install photos in their cars? I can't find a single review on the install, how the customer likes it, etc.... Are you able to release the usernames of those that are running the kit by chance Rob?

We do not release customer information sorry about that. However here is a thread write up on one of the first installs a few months back:

We are about 95% certain that these would not work on RHD cars. Sorry about that. I'd suggest checking into our OEM style RB High Flow Silicone Inlets.
