Not close to DE, but is there a timeline and price estimation for the 335 intercoolers? I'm looking to pull the trigger before it gets warm out in the northeast and would love to see this at the top of my list. PM'd though!

Returned your PM! At this time both are pretty up in the air depending on how the design, prototype, and production processes go; but hopefully with your help we can get started soon

We try to do everything we can to make sure we do our due diligence in R&D. We'd much rather take a little more time to make sure everything fits and functions the way it should.

Thanks everybody! We're still looking for these vehicles!

Updating the model list bump! We're still looking for a loaner in the Tri-State area to do some test fitting.

Drop me a line if you're interested!

Thanks

Bumping again with a list update! We really need a 3 series without the M-Sport package so we can confirm fitment with the standard fascia. You guys all have too cool of cars!
We could also really use an F32 for a fitment test as well.

Good morning! I have a 14 F32, but am nowhere near you physically. Is this something that can be done remotely as well? If so, give me a shout? Comment here or PM is fine.

Unfortunately it is something that has to be done at our facility. Thank you for your interest though!

It couldn't hurt to ask.. keep me in mind if something changes. I have and am actually doing many documented upgrade projects on my E46, E53, E83, E90 and now the F32.
