Question Catless headers question!

Hey guys,

I've found a new possible vendor for catless headers.The vendor states that the headers fit for 325i and 330i. I just had a quick question about fitment... would this fit the 328 N52 as well? The seller is unsure.



From my understanding, the 325, 328 and 330 were all the same engine (3.0L inline 6), just with different manifolds, etc. Based on looking at the supersprint headers sold by Turner - they list fitment across 325, 328s and 330s. So, from my basic understanding, these should fit.

I couldn't find an answer so I decided to start a thread - let me know if anyone had some insight on this.

The shipping gets expensive though. But yeah they're cheap - these products are made in china to begin with...you can find all of our expensive bumpers/hoods/etc on this site for cheap. That is where our resellers get them from...!

This where I got the first set of Ebay headers for my Z3 - they held up well (I'd recommend the 304 stainless) and fit well too.

So these aren't unbranded OBX headers?

I don't know that. But OBX and Ebay headers have been different before.

I'll ask a stateside vendor to see if he can get a few sets then that should cover shipping. The only problem is...FITMENT!!!!! Get it ceramic coated or whatever once it's delivered or something, blood, semen, peanut butter

I could arrange a group buy. I'm already in contact with the vendor by email - I was going to buy 1 set and do a test on these in the upcoming month or so.

Looks like your classic China headers. Most people have to try them once before they move on.

Here is an equivalent set being evaluated on M3Forum. Expect poor fitment/welds and gains equal to a cat delete.

I just heard from seller - cost shipped is $198 via FedEx. I think we could either use an O2 sim or maybe something like this O2 spacer with a small cat converter?

Well....on the Non M E46, they are a hit/miss. Until a vendo picked up the design and made their own variant.
