Take a close look at the pictures, you can see little bits of the G Power Original orange sticking out from chips on the paint

The paint job on the blower looks pretty cheap too...

Looks like they bought Tightie's s/c and spray painted it black in the back of their garage.

This is a disgrace to BMW, GPower, and insulting to my intelligence.
Whats with the different exhausts...
25 years... they need to hire new people, this is terrible!
I have yet to be impressed by anything that these guys have released! Their S85 swaps all look messy, and thrown together. Why put so much work into something only to have a half-assed look upon completion. Those Cheesy radiator hoses, are u kidding me. And those japanese tuner-esque stickers on the side, ridiculous. I cant believe they painted someone elses piece, and threw a sticker on top of it.... "spew"!

I don't understand this Manhart thing. and I don't understand why they did this to a beautiful manifold. This is what it should look like.

Wow...just wow. EPIC fail.

Using another company's parts, repainting and slapping your name on it is frakking lame. BMW performance seats and steering wheel? What an original, innovative idea! Why didn't WE think of that??? They even replaced the BMW logo with a lame white Manhart one on the steering wheel. It doesn't even match anything on the interior.

If Eugene's pics are any indication, it's a crying shame what they did to that manifold.

EDIT: Oh and at least most manufacturers polish the WHOLE exhaust not just the tips! I wonder which company they used for that, too... I guess one of the exhausts is M3 and the other is X5/6 M.

And it doesn't even look like they detailed the car or wiped the engine components before releasing the pics. Look at the CF rearview mirror. WTF, attention to detail fail.

I am NOT defending them in ANY way, but are we sure its a G power kit painted, or is it a Manhart kit that Gpower uses for their system. The only reason I say this is, Jim Conforti makes and programs parts for a few different tuners, yet he has a line of his OWN that are basically the SAME parts, rebranded if you will...

It COULD happen (but not likely) but it COULD happen, right?

That is not even close since Gpower's owner is the owner of ASA superchargers and blowers

I doubt he sells his blowers to Manhart to make a kit to buy it back and paint it and sell it again.
