you think this is only for 328? think again.

E9x, Z4 na cars weigh less and handle better. It's not all about power but sum of the parts. The same reason people buy Cayman and M3 over 335.

Nobody is beating you to get it. Also, you can't possibly think the folks are aware of 335!? The bad thing is the limp mode party sticky with 1000 pages.

I want it, but my car will be pushing 200k miles before I can afford something like this. Methinks I'll be more inclined to just do a full engine swap at that point.

You bring up a good point. I have 140k on my 330i and I'm not sure I'd want to risk it, but it would be awesome. :O I'd maybe consider finding a younger N52 to throw in and then supercharge it.

How about a Group Buy 'Pre-Order' Special Price !!

More details-
intercooler? bigger injectors? how tuned?

I have a 2007 530i SMG transmission...you guys do a group buy special and I might bite if the kit is compatible with the e60. I have invested/wasted/thrown so much money into the 530i that it has a sentimental value to me now. I understand the 335 vs 330i supercharged debate, but I am the first owner of my car and although the n54 is faster, I still love my 530i and it is no slouch. I don't track or drag or race but would be nice to have the option to add a S/C kit. Keep us posted please!

This is true, for extra 5-6 grand you can get 335 instead of 328, with similar milage and condition. Therefore it is a niche product for enthusiasts, who already invested serious money in 328 for suspension and brakes mods.

Don't think someone is putting a SC on their car gives a shit about warranty!!! These mods are way beyond those types of concerns.

Why not? If your motors healthy and it was taken care of right it will have no problem running this type of kit. They're people with half your mileage that blow engines lol. Mileage is nothing to be scared of

Nice!

When I deploy and do our patrols (flight crew) I like to bake cookies in our oven without telling anyone. When people start smelling cookies is when it is just about done. No anguishing wait....just...bammmmm!!!!! Here's some cookies, enjoy. I hate waiting.
