It will, but you need to play with the fenders.

As of now it has:

Giac Tune 91/ 93/ Race
Down-Pipes
Intake
Exhaust
FMIC

Not much, but we beat a 450hp SVT Supercharged Cobra.

The turbos are ready to be replaced. One is already starting to make noises so this summer my brother and I will be upgrading the turbos and getting a fueling kit. It is very expensive and we are not sure in which direction to go yet.

Worst case is RS4 K04's and if we can save enough money, RS6 Hybrids.

looks like the hood fits pretty well on his m3 so it might be doable on your 3er with some minor fender modification... plus i don't think you have to worry about warping since that guy has owned it for a while now. if it was going to warp, it would've warped already.

it does fit perfect on the m3 cus it's m3 fitment lol.. non-m is a whole different story

and it won't warp if u put on m3 hood shocks right away

it's a nightmare to get it gapless tho... yeah, it's just minor fender adjustments but it's also a guessing game

toby.. all ur parts fit so well so this would be the combo breaker but if u can live with some gap then get it i guess..

but dont buy it expecting to make it fit perfectly after a few minutes of adjusting the fenders
