andrewwynn will become famous soon enough
I found a decent looking set on Amazon took a while of searching I think I found via BMW part number determined with realoem. They are pricy still so I was looking into refurbish my cat pipe by taking out the assembly, build a frame from wood and steel nto hold in exact position and cut our and replace with generic but large enough cats.

For now I've punted replacement with some angle O2 extension an an occasional adaptation reset.

My weekend: Pulled the supercharger and all hardware, pulled the PS valve cover, changed PS upper timing chain gasket, VCG, and AC pressure line that had rubbed through against the suction line, put everything back together and drove it to work today. . . Also, my hands and arms are cut to shit.

Last few days have been:
1. New blower motor, dash out FUN
2. Trim Wrapped in CF, since the center console had to come out, might as well do it as I had the wrap on hand.
3. Wrapped the wheel since it was on the list to wrap since day one of ownership 6yrs ago :P



and yes the motor still works, but no flow on the passanger side :P bent the fins/pins up on the FSR too :P

I haven't done it myself but the guys on my race team work at Classic BMW in Dallas and told me they have done a half dozen HVAC fan replacements thorough the stereo and vent opening right in the center of the dash. No removal needed they say.

I'd love to know how they do it. The book says to remove the dash. I keep my fingers crossed. With over 250,000 miles I figure I'm on borrowed time for my fan motor. I am NOT looking forward to having to pull the dash.

Sounds interesting. I would say impossible without breaking anything.

IT MIGHT BE POSSIBLE, now that I have done ONE, but I think you have to cut that mid bar out of the radio hole that you have to cut to put an aftermarket radio in.
