I think they are coming in the stealthy black version as well.
I will call ABID @ ASR this week to confirm when they are available to ship and in what colors!

Exactly!
Although, the sound may change a little if it does in fact get more air!

Interesting information here! This looks like a good modification! Can we get some pictures of the M3 matte black version?

Thanks,
Carl

I know they stay there are no problems with these but I can't get past the idea that your are loosing air to your radiator. Can they be certain there are no over-heating issues?

Think of it this way, 335i owners have been using this setup on their cars for months now and turbo setups are MUCH MORE sensitive to heat (oil temperature especially). As far as I know, no issues have been reported.

You are not really losing much air to the radiator. The area where it is routing air from is at the edges of it anyway. These scoops have been used on other models successfully. It is a safe, easy mod. BMW themselves routes some air away toward the box.

Yes, they are, ASR did not have pics of them on them on the M3 so they posted the 335 scoops to give people an idea of what they look like. The M3 scoops are not going to really be much different.

I am calling up now to pre-order, so I will let you know what the approximate TOA is.

EDIT: They are located in Miami, FL so I am assuming they are not in the shop as tropical storm Fay is approaching. It's safe to say we should expect a delay in the product shipment.
