HEADS UP! do not buy NHP headers for your M3

Heads up to anyone looking at buying NHP headers from (maxspeedmotorsports)
in Quebec. I bought a set and the fitment is garbage, they do not line up with
the studs at all! I spent more time modifying them then installing them.
For a $1000 this shouldn't be the case.

Invoice? Warranty? Guarantee? Return policy?

I argued with the owner several times.
He insisted that he's installed several
on his customers cars. He wouldn't give
me a refund because he believes there's
nothing wrong with them.

that's horrible that he wouldn't return them, if he believes that it's so great he should have returned them in a heartbeat.
Did you modify it before or after you told them they wouldn't fit?

Im sorry for your experience, but we all have to learn from our mistakes.

I too have bought things from no name, some mexican store that never fit. Later I realized that I have to start buying things from reputable people with feedback and known customer service with BMWs.

Next time do more research before you buy and all will be good.

Exactly what he said... I used to live in Montreal, and the scene there is just garbage. Most cars there are running crappy parts, so it doesn't surprise me that this store is selling some rebadged ebay header and calling it their own. $1000....that's insane. Next time, do your homework!

Thanks for letting us know, they were on my list along with Fabspeed and SS (there might be a group buy on SS on m3f) I figured at $1000 they would be comparable to Fabspeed which get amazing reviews for fitment.

Maybe NHP is just reselling the ebay junk.
