Sucks but kinda makes sense. Market is so much smaller than the e46 market because all variants were NA and the e9x market is cut in half.

Yes, all e46 were NA, but e90 does have a good number of cars that were NA from 2006 - 2011 including 325, 328 and 330.

We'll see what real companies step up to the plate.

for sure but I just figured 99-06 was all NA motors across the board and then 07 - 12 has been a 50/50 split so the NA market is literally 1/2 the size now if even that. I'm sure thats part of what's been factored into each companies decision to not produce a kit.

What are you talking about? I already stated ESS is NOT making a supercharger for our engines a while ago

I am constantly seeing you post inflammatory things in the NA section. You don't even have an n52. I'm sure there are better ways to spend your time.

You are calling grown men kids. What isn't inflammatory about that? I never told you to go anywhere. You just don't seem to have anything positive to add, so I don't see what your purpose is.

Dead deal. ESS is not going to make a supercharger. AA has a car they are working on to try to develop a supercharger, but they'll only do it if they can tune the stock ECU. They will NOT run a piggyback system since that is a bandaid.

I talked to a gentleman at AA and he said that they had no desire any more to be working on such project. :/
