So decided to empty my BMS Catch Can today for the second time in 4 months since i installed it. I emptied the can about two months ago also. I've done about 1500klms since then and I don't really drive the car that hard. Quite impressed by the amount of oil it caught. Imagine after a few years of driving without one. All that oil would be lining your FMIC/piping and CP.

do a review on that seems like a good bang for your buck product just like any other BMS product!

We have had one of these in our show room for a couple of weeks now, i will fit it to Justin's car very soon pre track day. Nice looking bit of kit but a bit small in capacity.
We will see how good it is after the track day.

Nice video Edwin. I look forward to emptying mine in a couple months. I was really impressed with the quality of the OCC and the stealth design.

JB135i, where do I order one of these?

Also is there any benefit for use on 1M with no mods, but ~ monthly track use?

Just wondering... Its great to have a catch can to get rid of all the muck that otherwise passes through and I'm not debating that (though some other threads may) but what I want to know is why if you get RB turbos, they recommend not to have one? :

Np, found it!

Definitely worth getting one mate, even on a stock 135i. You'll be surprised how much oil you will pick up over a few months. It's dependent on how you drive and the amount of mileage. If you're doing a monthly track day then I highly recommend it, small investment that will protect your engine in the long term.

Sounds good. Thanks for the info mate - really appreciate it.

Is the installation hard?

Like all BMS products, it's very simple and is intended as a DIY install. After the cowl is removed, it should take about 10-15 minutes. Could be done in 5 minutes if the clips come off easily but everything is nice and tight the first time. Here's the instructions http://burgertuning.com/instructions/occ_install.pdf

It's really good value. I've seen a few other OCC come out over the years but they've all had issues, some even leak! The HPF OCC looked promising but it was over $500. The BMS OCC has been out for a few months and I haven't heard of any issues with it and it's well priced. I can't comment on whether I've collected any oil as I've only put mine in recently, however the quality fit and finish is excellent. I have a feeling you will collect more oil than Edwin due to your regular track days so it's very worthwhile in your case.

Thanks for that mate.

Thanks Vinney. I can only imagine the amount of oil this can will catch for the track gurus. Agree, quality is awesome.

Hey Alik, just order it from the Burger Motorsport website. Here's the link.
