Does anyone know what brand headers these are??

Found someone selling these headers locally for non M e46s. They come with sport cats similar to schmiedmann headers. Seller claims he doesnít know the brand. Does anyone know what it could be?

They look like Schmiedmann, which them selves are based on Alpina E36 B3 headers, and I have not seen many imitators replicate that design, most of them replicate Supersprint E46 design, so these might be Schmiedmann originals, good find.

Edit: if anyone wants to see Alpina original headers: https://www.m5board.com/threads/alpi...2#post-1620285

They might as well be Schmiedmann headers.
I have seen these on Ebay and Aliexpress as unbranded M54 headers.

They look exactly the same as Schmiedmann ones but without the their tags.

Quick update. So I noticed a serial number on the side of the headers. I emailed schmeidmann to confirm if this a genuine system. Stoked to find a serial number, this way Iím able to get some info about them
