I'm new on here but I was on audizine and bimmerforums before. Found this steal. 5" stepped intercooler for the e90. Comes in black or unpainted. Judging from their site they appear to know what they're doing. By the way I bought one so when it gets here I'll be sure to post a review.

Not that it matters since you bought it, but I'd stick with the name brands personally. Not too much of a price premium for a much better product. I've bought enough of the crap brands with other cars to know that there are 2 ways of doing things: right, and again.

Jwalker you're definitely right about that, can you say cat removal just to find out cheap eBay tp doesn't fit?? Lol but I'm always welcome to newcomers that seem to have the intention of providing quality products. But check out their Facebook and website.

I have a Rev9/godspeed/ebay intercooler. And in all honesty it does its job.

I've watched it. It's a sales tactic. They make it appear that something is low qty or running out to create a sense of urgency. Right when I bought this one, another one was put up. Their site has a higher price

I think the difference is that we were an established company with proven results on other platforms.

Judging from the pictures of the end tank and fin pack, they just copied Wagner's end tanks and welded them onto an inferior fin pack.

The main draw back of this intercooler is the fact that it retains the OEM connectors which have proven to be a substantial restriction, necking down to less than 2".

I don't mind paying for a decent quality cooler because unless your a pro racer a cooler is a cooler and I don't like the Bmw tax

Your coolers Tiago are most def the most realistically priced coolers for the beamers ..... Others are tbh a joke when it comes to price point and especially for overseas market when the exchange plays a factor

We haven't got it yet so no idea but for that price I'm willing to put in the effort to fix a rough weld if I think it needs correction.
