Good work, nice job.

Also, I figured out why your dad wants you to get an AFR wideband.......Nitrous !

How did the install go? Could you get all the bolts on? Are you happy with the fit?

Install went well, at first it seems like the cat back doesnt line up, but when you stick the bolts through it all lines up! Huge improvement, 3rd and 4th gear pulls And that sound

Went well, was unable to get 2 bolts on though. However there are no leaks, overall i am very satisfied and would do it again in a heartbeat.

If you remove the stock heat shield. You can get to all bolts. On my Original Gen3 I couldn't get one but I had heat shield on...

Re: Group Buy: BimmerBrakes GEN3 M54B25/30 Headers

Hey everyone. I am interested but how will it sound with a stock muffler. Will it have a deep sound or what? New to this but i am doing a lot of research. Thanks. Also, in every video i see of headers there is smoke coming out of the muffler. Will it always do that or am i missing something?

Does "interested" mean add you to the list??

Headers sound pretty good with the stock catback, not as deep and clean as Serdar's setup...you should be able to find more clips, but here is one I found:



No, unless your blowing smoke prior to the install, smoke shouldn't be a prolonged issue

Two more commitments and we're there!

i think by smoke he means all of the unburned fuel particles from the lack of catalytic converters

All on the List -Please check your inbox!

Also - Confirmed that there will definitely be a deal for a EuroCharged Tune for all who participate in this GB. Once everything is finalized, I'll report back!

Anyone who is on the fence, I'd jump on this! Just sayin...once his current batch is gone, my crystal ball tells me the price will be significantly more!
