Adding a clip (or some sort of hanger) in front would make it perfect. As it is it rests on the front of the chassis structure (don't know how that thing it is called in English). It is not making any noises or any other trouble because it is really stuck in there, but just for the peace of mind would have been a good addition. Also the installation was quite easy (you need smaller hands if you don't want to remove the intake supporting bracket from the car, but perfectly doable) Other than that it fulfills my expectations of a stock-ish look and small intake noise diminishing (those were my goals). Haven't checked the temps or anything because I don't care too much about that. It's just a box at the end of the day...
