Loaded all the parts up and car is off to the shop to get all the major goodies installed. I will post some more images of the parts later tonight. Never got around to doing detailed images like I wanted to but at least I have images of everything before it goes on the car.

I know most of you have seen these parts before but here are the parts at some different angles. Hopefully you will see some things you never noticed before. Such as the center console has some side flares that I never noticed in the images I have seen. I grouped the images based on item.

CSL Intake Main Air Collector images

Holidays means the work has been slow. Prob get the car back next Friday so 1/4/13.

I got my CSL parts through 4 different sources.

Bekkers
Autowerks (no longer in business)
Evolve
M3nutt

Majority of the parts were Bekkers and Evolve.

If you need contacts shoot me a PM. Just remember these are $$$ parts so be prepared for sticker shock.

Cheers

Adam

The car is now back at home after two months of being on vacation LOL. The shop I took the car to was kind enough to take images of some of the work as they did it. I need to give a major kudos to the shop for doing the work and doing an AMAZING job.


IPB-Autosport - Independent Sacramento Audi, Porsche, BMW, Mini, VW Specialist.
Address: 1206 C St, Sacramento, CA 95814
Phone: 916-453-1465

They had to do some learning in order to put it all together as well as do some customizing in order to make a factory fit and finish. They made it all come together so if you want to do something crazy like this in CA than this is the shop. They also have all the Evolve stuff as well as they programed the car for me. Next step is to paint the front bumper and break in the diff and cams for 500 miles =)

Car the day before surgery


No the images you all have been waiting for. Here is a LARGE compilation of images of an OE CSL INTAKE, OE CSL Air duct, and OE CSL Cams install. I will make NO apologize for the in-depth amount of images of the install done. Thank you again to the shop for taking the time to document =)
