BimmerBrakes' GEN3 Headers ordered!
Is it true? If so, why's everyone so quiet about it. This talk's been going on for months and we were told mid February is when to expect them? It does say "item on order" however...

Just placed an order..."Thank you for your order. Your order number is 1, placed 12/25/2012 at 11:30AM."

Let's see what happens.

Are these the equal length ones, the picture on the website look like it. Let us know when you get them and how they look, I have been wanting to order a set myself.

Damn..those headers are nice. I see nothing wrong with the price tag :dunno:

ImSoFreaknWhite 12-28-2012 12:34 PM

Thats a good price, if they are good headers

$430 shipped?? Guaranteed fit...good customer service...proven design. Not going to be SS OR Technik quality but they're a fraction of the cost...I plan to pick up a set

Why was the order cancelled?

Idk but I'm order #2 !! :D but I ordered SS instead cause I'm looking for rasp. Headers are headed my way!! :)

Are the Gen3 still going to be produced?
Are all six primaries the same length or are the front three the same and back three the same?
How is the Gen 3 different from the SS?
Does anyone know the diameter of the tube after the 3:1 merge collector for either/both the Gen3 and SS? I am looking into adding cats right there.

Bimmerbrakes is very legit and knows there stuff. The only issue with these is that to install, you more or less have to pull the motor. You'll see more torque gains from these but less HP gains on the top end than the SS style.

secono330ci 02-07-2013 11:04 PM

Not true, you can install them without pulling the motor. It's just a bit harder to get to all the bolts. It's more of just having the right tools to get in the hard to reach places.

777eThOd* 02-08-2013 08:50 AM

If I had to pull my motor out for any reason, I'd swap it with a M-powered motor lol.

330Cole 02-08-2013 11:21 AM

Motor doesn't have to be pulled completely, just engine mounts un bolted and motor jacked up a bit

wertyu78 02-12-2013 08:52 AM

Has anyone received the Gen3 headers yet? I'd like to order a set, but I'm skeptical. I'm debating on modifying euro S50 headers with M54 flanges.

SoloII///M 02-12-2013 07:17 PM

If the gen3 headers really are a clone of Technik V3's, they are not bad at all to install. Not appreciably worse than my Supersprints were.

Removing the passenger's side motor mount and bracket made it a ton easier and it only had to be out for about ten minutes while I slipped the headers into position and got a couple of the nuts started so the gaskets couldn't fall out.
