Just curious if anyone's read the first paragraph off of the BMW motorsports catalogs. It makes me think about this not DOT approved issue and how BMW could still sell them and we just sign a disclaimer, waiver and release.

This BMW Motorsport/racing/off-road Parts Catalog gives you an overview of the specially developed BMW Motorsport parts. Some parts may not be available in the US and may not be approved for all racing series or class. All parts listed are intended for use on approved motorsport/racing/off-road series BMW vehicles ONLY. The parts are Not DOT-approved, homologated or street legal and may adversely affect the original manufacturer’s limited warranty on the vehicle. Installation of motorsport/racing/off-road parts on a vehicle may render it nonstreet legal. Suspension parts (including but not limited to struts, shock absorbers and springs) must be used together as a system and should not be partially installed or combined with any other components from BMW or other manufacturers. Purchasers of motorsport/racing/off-road parts will be required to sign a disclaimer, waiver and release.

Yes it can be as easy as disclaimer/release. I don't know why it's so hard to just have that in place because it would be impossible for BMW to oversee all sales of EURO only products to every single customer. They must still be keeping tabs somewhere... Interesting post I found: http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=391327

These are indeed the same plastic as the others. Straight plug and play with 2011.

Not 100% sure. Haven't heard back from Chris in awhile. So I am updating the thread to let people choose what they want to do and not waste anymore time.

UPDATE 4/28

Updated original post with this information as well as the new pictures!

Since many of you are anxious about getting these I am going to let you decide what you want to do. I have no control, nor do I want to waste your time waiting around for a group buy that may/may not happen. I have been in talks with Chris, but so far no more information has popped up. Basically leaving us waiting for an answer from BMWNA. I am not saying that the group buy will not happen, just don't want to keep people hanging and those that do not want to wait.

If you do go ahead and place an order please post here and let me know so I know whom to keep on the group buy list

Here is the list of places that actually sell these to the US... **Note that some may have lead times, be back-ordered, or not in stock for awhile.

As promised I will give you guys the links to order if you DO NOT want to wait and see how the group buy turns out. Remember that these links are slightly more expensive than the stated price of the group buy. (~$400USD+ shipped) compared to the group buy of (~$320-$365 shipped)

Schmiedmann - http://www.schmiedmann.com/1_series/...e2.htm#1944982 ($321.76 + shipping) - Abroad Shipping Rates

ECS Tuning - http://www.ecstuning.com/ES2550272/?...aign=postreply ($372.02 + shipping) - Local US Shipping Rates but has an ETA of July? PM or email them for better response about that

BMWPartsUK - http://www.bmwpartsonline.co.uk/Prod...it-63212225282 ($335.25 + shipping) - Abroad Shipping Rates

I have to pull out as well. Not because of anything in particular. I just decided I want downpipes instead

If I get more funds in the near future, I'll probably jump back on this to be honest (if it's still going on). I'm not a big fan of the LCI tails, the originals look cleaner to me, but the "blackline" looks much better than tints and I like that. Probably gonna get a black LS1 kit to match it too in the future. But for now, I'd rather get more power than look prettier

Has anyone received their order from Schmiedmann? If so, is your box the same size as the one in post #223 (top of the page)? I remember seeing the normal LCI units arriving in much larger boxes with better packaging (when bought from Schmiedmann).
