“Bavauto” Headers Group Buy Round 2: Now with more headers…
 
I'm not a vendor so I don't have permission to post in the group buy section. Mods, if there's an issue with this please contact me to discuss.

I just want to start out by saying that I do not work for Bavauto or Tubular Automotive and I am in no way affiliated with either of those two companies. I just use “Bavauto” in the title because these are the same headers that Bavauto use to sell, and they are being made by the same company that previously made them for Bavauto. People know them as Bavauto headers so that’s just what I call them.

I also want to point out that this a non-profit venture on my behalf. I choose to run this group buy for free in my spare time in order to make these quality headers more easily and more cheaply available to the E30 community. So please be patient if I don't respond to your PM's immediately, I try my best to answer them the same day they were sent but sometimes things just don't work out that way.

Now onto the good stuff. After speaking with Tubular, I’ve got some details on some different header designs for other BMW models that will be available this time around. Here are the details (prices are in USD):

Model: 2002
Details: 1 3/8” primaries, 2” collector into 2” integral mid-section
Price for 5+ sets: $460
Price for 10+ sets $440

Model: E21 320i 2.0L (early)
Details: 1 3/8” primaries, 2” collector into 2” integral mid-section
Price for 5+ sets: $480
Price for 10+ sets: $460

http://i575.photobucket.com/albums/s...0photos052.jpg

Model: E21 320i 1.8L (late)
Details: 1 3/8” primaries, 2” collector into 1 7/8” mid-section with flanged connection
Price for 5+ sets: $480
Price for 10+ sets: $460
No mid-section: subtract $20

http://i575.photobucket.com/albums/s...0photos053.jpg

Model: E30 318i (1984-86)
Details: 1 3/8” primaries, 2” collector into 1 7/8” mid-section with flanged connection
Price for 5+ sets: $480
Price for 10+ sets: $460
No mid-section: subtract $20

Price for 10+ sets: $560

Notes: Having a flange installed on the one mid-section pipe in order to have it bolt up to a stock cat-back exhaust will cost extra because the flange has to be ordered from BMW.

As with last time these prices are for uncoated headers and shipping is not included in the price. Headers can be ceramic coated for an extra fee. The price will depend on the number of sets that are being coated. If you're interested in having your headers coated assume that it will cost roughly $200.

If you're interested, please add your name to the list using the following format:

Name, Header Model, mid-section included/excluded (if applicable), coated/uncoated, # of sets (forum)

i.e. Bullet Ride, E30 325, mid-section included, coated, 1 set (maxbimmer)

Thanks guys.

It's also worth pointing out that the 5+ and 10+ prices apply for any combination of 4-cyl headers and any combination of 6-cyl headers. So say there's 5 people that want 2002 headers and 5 people who want 318i headers, the 10+ pricing will apply to both of those in that case.

Lol... I'd seriously consider trading my current E30 for an E30 with an M20 just so I could buy a set of these headers... they sound soooo good! :)

I love the way my M20 sounds as is above 3K. I'm hoping these sound as brilliant as I've heard them in videos with my current cat-back setup.

Do the e30 ones come with the nice band clamps to attach the mid pipes to the headers?

Bavauto may have packaged them with hardware when they sold them in the past, but these are coming straight from the fab shop so there's no hardware included.
