personally, I dont think I would trust ebay headers. but thats just my opinion. I would save my money for something a little more reputable.

you can buy OBX from other vendors besides ebay. Ebay products are fine, as long as you do your research first, and buy from a reputable seller.

Will these headers set any codes off?

so what i take from this is... the best thing for 325i owners would be to install the simulator, install the headers, and do the 330 mod

correct?

Looks interesting - I thought I read somewhere that installing headers is very difficult for our cars due to spacing constraints....?

i heard this too. but then again, doesn't the BMS pbx just try to modify whatever the ecu is reading, not necessarily wipe clean the 32x to 330 tune?

bulk production brings better prices... I would buy it

My friend has bought headers from ebay for 50 USD (e46 328i) and he gained about 22 hp on wheels (30 HP) only with headers and intake.

correct, it just modifies the signal from the ecu, it does not replace it. That's it works on all 3 models (325i, 328i, 330i)

It will be around the same price.

These are a supersprint rep, all you need is the o2 simulators and you have 15whp gain from primary cat delete.
Make sure your using the OEM muffler though.
What about with the oem performance exhaust?

I heard that loses torque tho... I think the restriction from our OEM mufflers is what gives us that lower end torque. Our cars are quite optimised already. I think the BMW Performance just gives a little bit more sound for those who wanted it.

6 hours for headers is a joke. Make sure you didnt drive your car for the day yet, prop it up on a jack or few ramps and work from under the car.
If your paying 6 hours to get headers installed, buying these headers arn't worth it.

Haha...that's what I said when I talked to a buddy of mine at T&C.
But, as we all know...that's where stealerships make their money.

DimSum, any news on the Raceland headers or something similar.

I was talking about the bms powerbox if you stayed stock. you had asked two questions, seemed like the second was if you stayed with the stock set up. my bad. if you did both together... I dont know.

The shop rates are hilarious, I remember hearing a crazy story like the dealership needed the car overnight for a BMW Performance Exhaust install...

Raceland headers in 3 months... Other than that, nothing so far... I will keep updating e90post if I find more mods which are relatively worth while... unlike that damn'ed $10K supercharger from taiwan

Cool! Once my warranty runs out I do plan on getting a bit more "hardcore" tuning like headers, flywheel, pulley (if I get one to fit), LSD etc.

In the meantime, I guess we'll all have to wait. Now I'm undecided about whether to get the BMW performance exhaust, Magnaflow catback exhaust or just do a res delete with custom quads :-)
