cool for the intake which am quite confident that it will arrive. I am not that sure about the LSD though, or against what price and if they will offer on for all the available versions. (non welded / welded / auto / manual / DCT) I cannot imagine every dealer would be trained to installed a LSD, so I guess they would just swap the pumpkin... that however would be very expensive. Curious though

They already have high-priced items like the BMW Performance seats so a higher price wouldn't be unusual for them Also, if you look at realoem and match with Tischer you will notice that the M3 LSD (pumpkin included) is not that expensive ($2200 or so). This compares favorably with a Quaife + pumpkin.

As for the intake, I wonder what the design is...if I were to speculate, I would say they have a bigger carbon-fiber airbox with bigger air tract from the grille to airbox. I am not sure if they would go with dual cones inside the airbox.

Fair point To be honest I expected a higher price.... However, with the lower volumes I guess the price will be higher, but still in a competative range for aftermarkets LSD (for sure for people with welded ring gears) I drop my car to install a Drexler LSD this weekend, a bit doubting now

A carbon airintake sounds good

First off, vgame64, thank you for taking the time to do the interview. Well done!

When the BMW guy speaks of "...if we get enough demand...." how do we make sure they hear us? Is there an email or phone # to contact them? I'm worried that if I write BMW NA and ask them to pursue items like the intake and LSD, that it will get some form letter response and never get to the BMW Performance people, like your interviewee. Any direction there?

Thanks again

Can you please ask BMW Performance why-o-why have they not released an aluminum footrest for cars that are right hand drive (in the UK)?

I have the accelerator and brake pedals in aluminum, but the footrest is just plain black plastic!

Surely, it's not that hard to "engineer" an aluminum footrest.

Are there any plans to release any BMW performance suspension options for Xdrive cars?
