Yes I want to use 330 exhaust. So I'm looking for the best and the easiest solution. From my perspective this is the best solution (330 headers + 330 exhaust) without any difficult mods.

I'm only trying to figure out, if there are some other differencies expect flanges.

I have a 330ci full packages and it is not loud, I wouldn't move to a 330 exhaust setup.. I can barely hear my engine over the wind at WOT. its sad. I'll be doing this eBay header deal soon..

Here I was just going to trader-nas' page to order a set for my 330 and he's kicked the price up another $100! Fts! Does anyone know if this seller is trustworthy: http://item.mobileweb.ebay.com/viewi...id=34536750738
And if these would fit on the '06 m54 engine?

I got the eBay headers installed on my 330ci, engine is louder and stock exhaust backfires at times , had them for about 7 months, still running good.

^ Alternatively you couldíve just used the downstream O2 bung for 1 of the oxygen sensors, and upstream bung for the other.

Thatís what I had to do. So much for their "100% fitment guarantee"

I got mine from ebstores on ebay a couple weeks ago.

I ordered the 323i/328i for my 328ci, and wasnt even expecting them to fit. But I figured for $89.95 + free shipping, it would be worth a try.

I was actually pretty surprised how well they fit my 328ci...Excluding triming the motor-mount heatshield, it was 100% bolt on.

^^^ I know right? what the hell is with the price hike??? I was planing on getting some of these for my X5 but hot damn! still a better deal than SS headers but crap man. Anyone know any place else to source these headers now? I think $350 is just them getting greedy...

I wrote to ebstores to ask if they are planning to restock.

Nice thread, personally 100$ ebay headers became nightmare no o2 sensor was fitting and it was cheap as hell , went for 1500$ supersprint headers, everythings fine. Sound is great, perf 2 , supersprint all the way
