For the 323/328, they will mount on the engine side but the exhaust piping side won't.. unless you cut the headers, flip the mount, and weld them back together. This is what I opted to do because I trusted the quality of BimmerBrakes over others and know their owner is a rockstar.

It is much more pricey than buying cr@p off ebay but it's worth the hassle.

serdar255,
Please post photos and include inside both the inlet and outlet flanges so we can see the transitions. They have a couple of those photos on the web site, but those were the prototypes. Nothing new has been posted.

Thank you and good luck with the install. If you were in Denver, I would offer to swing by to help for a while.

In case you are still looking to purchase:
http://www.bimmerbrakes.com/BimmerBr...n3-325-330.htm

I'm waiting a few weeks to see what the general consensus is. Looks amazing so far and the welds look pretty sharp. I can't stomach letting go a grand for those stupid Supersprints; I'd rather pay my buddy (super duper pro machinist) 1500 to make one.

Does Anthony even give a fuck about this forum anymore? I would have thought he'd put in a personal announcement as soon as these were shipping. He certainly was happy to start the hype when it was vapor-ware. I gotta admit I'm on the fence and would love to pick a set up, but I'm underwhelmed by the launch and support of the new product here.

maybe i'm just a douche?

Well BimmerBrakes isn't a sponsor on any site right now...they stand behind ther products and to my knowledge they haven't left any members here high and dry...besides that, the way i look at it, unless you get eBay headers which might fit and now your hard-pressed to even find those for under $350...your going to drop 3 to 4 times this price for a new set...

I see your point of view, you aren't a douche. Anthony is a great guy and i wouldnt hesitate to buy anything from him. He gave me 100% refund on my headers including reverse shipping. Now i ordered the Gen3 and he has dealt with my constant questions. He is very helpful and wants to do whats right!

Do you think he would be selling headers if he didn't? That's a pretty stupid question to ask. Anthony helps everyone and works with everyone to make sure all your needs on his products work/fit. Anthony has been real busy lately and also has lifes like us. Give him a minute, He's a 1 man army!!! Lol! stay breezy!

I'm in, its kind of hard to argue with a sub $500 header if it comes with a warranty.
