He said there's only 300 left between the US and Germany and I doubt they'll make more..

I just ordered the BMW Air Intake from Patrick. Can't wait to DIY this thing. Seems like a 20 minute job.

BTW, these arent gonna last. It looks like BMW needs to sell off their inventory as the e46 ages. Get your goodies cheap while they still are available new.

I bought BMW Performance front brake rotors, they seemed quote cheap at $179/pr. for the 330i. Can anyone comment what retail used to be and if those are going for less anywhere else? Mine should arrive today from Turner.

EDIT: nevermind, looks like I paid way too much.

Yup, if anyone is thinking about it don't take much longer, I feel as though these are pretty rare also in that not a lot of people have them because of the original retail price, and with only 300 left worldwide(?) at the new price they aren't going to last.

The strut bar is the best looking available too, and at 1.5 pounds you can't beat it, it's even lighter than the UUC magnesium bar.

I'm excited for my new engine bay, I'm gonna love popping the hood everytime, it's gonna be sexy haha

    Aside from the BMW air intake, I also got some suspension maintenace items like CAs, CABs, RTABs and some other small things, to include with the order. The final cost for everything was excellent. If you like OE like I do, then you should check them out. You wont find better OE prices, from what I can tell.

    So what happens when they do not produce the replacement filter element anymore?

    A) I'm jumping off a cliff

    B) Buying a lifetime supply of filters

    C) Reinstall my factory box

    D) None of the above

    Seriously, though, I think there is a federal law which requires them to continue to make available parts after the car has been discontinued. Maybe 7-10 yrs.

    Does that mean the start of the generation or from the model year and the parts for each respective model year? If it's generation we have until 2012-2016, if it's model year then mines was over in 2007 (or 2011 for 10 years) which doesn't make sense now that I think about it.

    Either way hopefully they stock enough replacements
