Those of you who have suffered from heat coming through the drive shaft tunnel and cooking your right leg, take heart!

BMW now offers a heat shield (18 12 1 245 565 $4.10) that effectively radiates the heat downwards from the muffler. Mounting brackets are needed (18 12 1 245 566) two at $.95 each, and four bolts (07 11 9 919 978) and four nuts (07 12 9 922 714). It takes about ten minutes to install and really works.
