I really don't know.

But $50 is a great deal, if you decided not to use the BimmerBrakes gaskets.

So what gaskets did you use and how are they holding up?

I'll let you know if I want the OEMs, keep me at the top of the list

Well I have exhaust leaks I will tell you that right now. I would only use OEM. I would put them back on but its so much GOD DAMN work and its not worth it to me. Just to stop a exhaust leak. But you should do it right.

I have pics somewhere on here I will get the link.

If I had to guess.... 325/330 because they're all M54's

Paying the premium for BB headers was not worth it. Both headers I received were defective.

Get eBay headers from the seller mentioned, make sure they are for your car when you receive them, and enjoy having saved hundreds of dollars.

The other Example the user never posted pics or emailed me anything to show me something was wrong. As I would have send him another one free of charge with providing the serial #.

I can give you a bunch of ebay wrong headers and o2 bungs don't work and with no support on a replacement.

As I said in my other thread, I'm sure you can come up with a counter argument for each example to save face. Point is I received $300 worth of junk headers.

Your O2 bung didn't "work" either, and 3/4 threads on them were difficult to get into.

but why would you keep my JUNK Headers installed on your car? I believe at this point a proper FULL Refund is needed and return all 3 pieces and hardware. As I don't want to sell or force anyone to run my JUNK Headers. If you have any other comments or issues please email me at BimmerBrakes@gmail.com

Because I'm not going to tear my car open again and go through that procedure again, its an unreasonable request. I require the use of my vehicle while finding a fix for the remaining defective header.

Shipping the short defective header back at my expense for half my money back is what I can do.
