This not a knock on Gavin but I would wait to see the feedback from someone else before I put my money down... Theres just certain companies that has established Reps and ESS is one of them. I'm ready to buy a s/c but still picky in regards to quality of the system.

MMW is respectable here. Granted, they haven't done superchargers before, but in other areas they have a lot of happy customers.

I know, I'll be one of the first ones to order MMW SC if feed back is good. I'm just saying ESS, Active, and VFS all have done s/c before and it's not a matter of Can do but if they want to take on the project.

I'd be interested. I plan to hold on to this car for a long time even tho I may get something else next year…. I always wanted a "project" car… since getting the e90, been disappointed that i didn't wait for 335i 4door. SO.. it would be really cool to know that I could get some kinda of boost to 300+ hp range.. on my car.

I'm guessing the N52 SC kit wouldn't work on the n51 engine...?

If I'm not mistaken, the SC kit will work for the N51 as well, but the HP/TQ would be slightly different due to the lower compression rate in the N51. If anything, it may provide more power due to that.

It really is. You can read up all you want about how to please a woman, you can look at all the diagrams in the world, but just like the clitoris, you won't know what the hell an apex is before you actually find it.

To add, they have a SC for the e46 m3 price at $5,400. I think its possible. Definitely in if it comes out within the next 1-2 years.
