How about the Intake boot?

Are the hoses going to be black? Pricing yet?

Yes, intake boots are still in the works. It's just a time consuming process to get the bends right. Since there won't be any accordion tubing, they have to get it perfect. And it's not cheap.

Boots/hoses should be available in red/black/blue. They'll probably have the Stett logo on them. I'll post pictures on Tuesday when I get into work.

I would be willing to pay more to make sure they don't have the logo on the them. What kind of logo are we talking about?

I really want to have the hoses still look OEM; all black, no logos, just better functionality!

Facts:
1. I have no idea what colors
2. I have no idea on a price
3. These will only be for 330s. I did not send 325, 323, or 328 boots, nor do I plan on it. Please don't ask if it'll fit.
4. I sent the lower and upper boots. Not sure if they'll do both or just one.
5. I really don't have any answers, just need a list of people interested.

I'm not even sure if they'll be able to do it, but I'd like a good alternative to the crack-prone factory boots. Some nice heat resistant boots would be great, IMHO.

If you have questions, post them up. I'll try to get them answered. If you have another model of e46 (not a 330) feel free to contact them and ask if they'll do it.
It's been almost 8 MONTHS now, who the hell do they have designing/manufacturing these, Ray Charles?????

Well you should really get matching radiator hoses before the intake comes out.... Your car will hate you if you don't.

Just did t'stat swap in Nov, pulled hoses to inspect for any cracking, swelling, glaze, chalk..... none. The intake boot has visible cracking and I am sure will need replacing B4 hoses......will do hoses when the waterpump goes, still going at 118,000mi.

I found mine during a 3 hour trip to San Antonio but I was just trying to save you $50 since the group buy is now.
