Intercooler on F30 328i?

Does the F30 328i come with an intercooler? If so, where is it?

EDIT: Oops! I ment to ask about "oil cooler"; not intercooler.... Please disregard.

The N20 engine has an engine to oil coolant heat exchanger. It's the silver (aluminium?) box at the top right side in front of the engine, just in front of the filter.

Ahh I wondered what that thing was for! Managed to ascertain it was a heat exchanger but wasn't sure what for.

How would intercooler and BMS tuning work together? Cooler air reduce need for high octane gas e.g. 91 = 93 performance?

It would improve performance, but you would still need higher octane gasoline.
