Still working on getting this into production, probably 2-3 months before you can own it. Pricing will be comparable to the V35 for the E92

OPINION! Also easy on the caps lock it give the impression you are shouting.

The hood does have a function, actually multiple. One is weight savings and the second is to aid in engine cooling.

That's easy, we already have the aFe Dual Cone Intake which I will be installing in conjunction with this hood.

OK Guys, new developments:

Pricing will be the same as this hood

We will need a commitment of 20 orders minimum before we produce this hood. We will figure out this friday if that is going to be possible, whether or not we'll take deposits, etc...

But as a preliminary straw-pole, at that pricing, will 20 of you 100% for sure buy this hood?


Thanks
JL

With all due respect you guys will sell way more lips than hoods. I bet most people on here would jump at a nice simple lip and not even think twice about one of these hoods.

I would put a deposit down right now, I just want to see a prototype or something installed on a 1er and pictures of it at an angle. I'm still worried option C will look awkward.

Unfortunately we'll have to get the deposits before the prototype is made.

Also, if you guys would like a lip first, let us know, and we can do that

IMHO, and i mean this with no offense, I think that is absolutely ridiculous. You want us to commit to a cf hood that'll cost about 1.5k and we don't even know how its going to turn out?

If it was design A, which you can't go wrong with, then that could be more reasonable.

But what if this whole idea of it hanging over the headlights turns out wierd? Now I'm stuck with it?

Atleast give those 20 people a MUCH better price than what it will be when it comes out.

But that's just my opinion.

I am down for both, but would like to see a real product first.

They will sell no matter what, you know? They would be a lot easier to sell also if you all had a real prototype.

Lip first as it will be more affordable than the hood. But if it's gonna be like the E46 that needs a $1300 bumper package then never mind. All we need is a lip that will fit on the M tech.

OK we'll probably intro both at the same time, and whichever gets to 20 deposits first will be made first

i honestly think it would have looked better if the vents were closer to the middle of the hood (in terms of it being too far back)... would love to see some underside shots of the hood too. fitment though, looks right on!

I think it looks nice. Though i have never been a fan of the Inward middle vent. You guys would have my money if it was a powerdome. The powerdome hood for the e90 is the nicest looking aftermarket hood i have seen in years. For any car for that fact.

But, looks nice nonetheless.
