Got lucky with a local yard having a car in their USA location.

Paid 300 after tax for the X3 manifold, then got 10% off because they lost it their inventory for a week. I inspected the gaskets and decided not to replace them, saving another 30-50.

Used the sensors from my original manifold to avoid any issue from the junked car. I didnt really clean the sensors, except to wipe off oil.

Cheaper than any tune lol
