I noticed these last week. Long ago a sponsor here had requested a testfit candidate, but not sure if anyone took that chance. A member pointed out that the collector is rather thick and may cause OBX issues with motor mount.
Right now they are sold by vividracing and the price is competitive to Arma and MMW. MXP are not ceramic coated.

Another company to watch is bimmerbrakes, if they ever develop n52 stuff. Also there is an Asian brand that i need to look up, they have nice vid with a 325i e90 on YouTube.

I care about the price because customs to Canada will add a % and Mxp currently is cheapest option.
