Which ebay headers have you purchased recently?

So ive done a little bit of reading and basically came to the conclusion like half of the recommended sellers no longer exist and i wanted to pick up a set of headers from ebay. With the lack of links to whom you bought them from and cost, i wanted to see if people who recently bought ebay headers would share the links to the exact ones and maybe any other place that you have had a good set sent to you other than ebay and were priced affordably..thanks guys

Ehhh… Eff it! For $99 I'll give it a shot. Just ordered. I'll report back how it goes. It's still well below freezing here, so it will be a month or two before I can install. I'll, at least, post my impressions in the meantime once they arrive.

I hope all goes well. It makes me wonder, since it has the 328i listed alongside the 325 and the 330. Usually it seems that the 323/328 and 325/330 stick with each other.

That was my concern as well. I usually don't cheap out on components like this but for $99, I be a test subject. Hopefully, it will help.

They should fit, I just read their description and it says that the 330i will require modification. However, I also listed that I have an M3 (I don't really) but it said the part was compatible with an '04 M3, so I guess we'll see.

330i needs modification"

I think problem with all eBay headers is that even though they are supposed to fit according to the seller, it isn't always the case. I'm totally taking a shot on these because they're cheap. I should have them in a few days and will report back on the quality. I won't be able to test fitment for a few weeks.

If they do fit, that'll be good news for me because I've got a 325 as well. I am looking forward to fitment, and if fitment works, I'll also be looking forward to hearing how they sound. Knock on Wood.

I'll get the sellers ID after dinner but I purchased a set for $137.00 shipped
They fit well. Now I just need to weld the flanges up!

I have to cut out the old flanges off the OEM mid pipes but the whole system lines up. The true test comes with the mileage testing. Lets see how long these hold up.

They arrived this week. I'm really impressed with the quality. The flanges are properly orientated. The length looks right. I'm 98% sure that they will bolt right up. I'm doing the ceramic coating next week and hope to have the install done in the next two weeks. I'll update with details.

Not installed yet..

So sorry for the lack of updates. I'm in north Indiana and the weather hasn't allowed me to do the install. I promise to report back the first week of May.
