Just made an oil pan baffle

Hi guys,

Just wanted to let you know I made a working oil pan baffle for the N54 (and possibly N55) 1/3/Z4. Look for it in the coming weeks from VAC Motorsports!

Nice, that should help with the oil starvation some people were seeing on the track.

Should be the same cost as the other oil pan baffles they already sell. We are sending them a full working unit so they can copy and make them. I run a shop, not a production facility, so this is more up their alley.

That's great! I contacted them several times over the past year now and they said there's not enough interest.

Called VAC yesterday, they said should be available in a month, since they have everything that's required to start the manufacturing process.

Edit: And VAC also mentioned it's a priority for them before the track season starts again, which is fairly assuring.

There's a slight delay in the production. Hopefully, it would be ready in 2-3 weeks.
