Bimmer Brake Headers vs Ebay Headers (pic heavy)
 
10 Attachment(s)
Ok, this horse has been beat several times over. The 3 headers that I'm comparing are as follows. Group Buy Bimmer Brake headers, Ebay Headers, Bimmer Brake headers (bought 2/10/12). I bought Bimmer Brake headers based on these pictures posted by Bimmer Brakes on 2/03/12. In this thread here http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthr...=893313&page=4 Post #69. After receiving some crap, I decided to save everyone the BS! Enjoy make your own choice, I felt very mislead. The pictures will do all the talking! First set of pictures here are the Group Buy Bimmer Brakes headers.
EDIT: PICTURES LOOK HERE!! http://s50.photobucket.com/albums/f3...an007/headers/ Order is as follows for this link BB headers that I bought and were fraudulently marketed, Then my old ebay headers (were shipped to BB for R&D, thank god) Then the GBuy BB headers.

Another thing I forgot to mention, the Group Buy Bimmer Brakes headers have no serial number etched into them. (Strange) The other Bimmer Brake headers had a serial number etched into them?

In. I had the BB ones I bought separate, not from the group buy. Mine had a serial number too.

Doh!

I was just about to buy both the headers and the O2 simulator, now I am rethinking the whole deal. Can anyone confirm that the O2 simulator from Bimmer Brakes works as advertised?

EDIT: I went ahead and ordered the O2 simulator figured I would check that out.

If I could do it all over again. I would have kept my ebays. :banghead:

This information is correct and the vendor would never post said pictures to this effect on said product. This is for all of the members that have been a victim to this kind of marketing. These atrocities committed on members of this community is wrong. I am only trying to put the best information available to assist the people of this community in their purchases. :thumbsup:

I'm just a fan of xixixi's posts. This one was educational.. Im waiting for the E46 to really hit rock bottom. Technik Gen 3 is going to be hard to find until people start parting out en masse......
