Charge pipe for F30 N55 335, urgent!

Hi All,

I've cracked my stock charge pipe and am needing a new one asap.

Does anyone have one handy or can suggest where I can source on locally asap? Am based in Melbourne

I've jimmyed the old one back on the throttle boddy with a hose clamp and found if I can keep it with very low acceleration it won't pop off, but i don't know how long this patch will hold up!

Thanks HFW, I had that as my back up, not sure I truely believe their 3 day delivery promise and the welds look a bit rough from the pictures, but it seems cheap!

I'll give Stu a call tomorrow and see what he can throw together for me.

Hi OP we have this in stock
Can overnight it to you.

You're not alone, we are seeing more N55s across the F series platforms with cracked charge pipes...

Shame BMW is still putting in these substandard plastic pipes when they really need something stronger.

Hi Stuart,

Is this pipe manufactured by yourselves or by a company for you? I was looking at the ER pipes that everybody seems to use, but mine has just blown as well so may need one a bit quicker!
