uk supplier for upgraded chargepipe....

whats the quickest way to get the upgraded chargepipe delivered to the uk?
Is there a company already supplying a uk outlet or do i have to order the hp Autowerks part from the states and pay as much in postage as i do for the pipe lol?
Any info would be really appreciated cheers jamie

Get on to Forge, you want to speak with Chris Lloyd.....He was keen on sorting out for the 1M when they had my car in last year for the IC development.

Shipping should be less than $80 on the CP, maybe even less.

Charge pipe is not a 1M-specific piece.

Any aftermarket charge pipe made for a N54-motored BMW (whether 1, 3 or 5 series) will fit.

What are the benefits of changing the charge-pipe?

It will not blow apart at the plastic weld seam like the OE one seems to do. Although that has been mostly a 1M issue with its over boost feature.
