RPI's scoops are already out for the M3, I'm picking them up next week. ASR will deliver theirs in 2 weeks... translation another month or two.

I have some on order, should have them soon. I dont know how much of a difference they will make. I am hoping for a little on the autobahn, I am guessing the faster you go the better the effect.

Ive been speaking to Abid from ASR, and he all of a sudden dissapeared on me. Apparently they are moving facilities and that is why I couldn't get a hold of him/them. He says the scoops are finished, they are in the final stage of being coated/painted. Should be available next week...but I won't hold my breathe anymore. I was really upset to not be able to get a hold of them for 3 weeks.


Where is this RPI scoop?

Well i have the same feeling as well since I read your post as well and I was excited about their product..but dropping out that like its really kicks me out...suddenly lost connections and not updating much...paying them makes me scare....

I don't know if my mine will change...if they make up for it...but...RPI seems promising...

Can any other guys here lead us to RPI's m3 scoop?

I am a bit disappointed in ASR, they over promise and under deliver.

Everyone here seems to be forgetting that the week before the scheduled release date a severe hurricane passed through their area and caused a great deal of damage to parts of Florida. They are most likely moving their facility for this reason...

200 dollars, I'll post pics tomorrow, maybe today, we will see. I would like to drive the car a bit more with them and the filter before posting a review, so the ecu adapts to the added flow.

How do you order from them?? They are doing something on the website it seems...since last time I visit it doesn't look that that when I click the product page..

Do you think you can setup some group buys? Seriously..people who waited for ASR need some light to move on...

I'm not the group buy fairy.

They are updating the site it seems.

You just call them, this thing called the telephone is pretty useful

RPI scoops are $200?

ASR scoops are $350 I believe....

I have to wonder if there is any difference?
