fuck it.. I was going to start install next Monday, but I am taking my cat this afternoon to get it underway. Roman, I am calling fedex as we speak to book a pick up for my ECU!!
i recieved my bumper and grills from them today and when i open the box i was shocked
the bumper was wraped with about ( no joke ) 30 microfiber towels in 1'x2' in size , and 3 to 4 layers of bubble wrap !!!!
it took 3 guys about 25 min to expose the bumper , once that happend every one had a on their faces ... me on the other hand had the biggest

04/08/2010 UPDATE:

I decided to do kill some time by getting the Front Air Duct ready for installation. Since I had the Gruppe M intake system on, the stock air duct was just sitting in a box at home so it was one of those things I could do as I watched TV.

Update from Roman:

This part now comes pre-cut in the new systems so you will not have to do this ... One of the many reasons why I love the way ESS made the kit is because you can return it back to stock 100%

**This is not a DIY ... Just my own review and that is why I don't write detail instructions**

4/12/2010 UPDATE:

As I wait for my supercharger kit to arrive a few other things came in today

I would like to give a special thanks to Long from LTBMW. Long was nice enough to take a few hours out of is busy schedule to drive a hour each way to pick this up for me. He also shipped it out to me right away. LTBMW has been a huge part of both my E90 328 build and now my E90 M3 build. This project would not be where it is today without him!!

Thank you so much Long!!

04/14/2010 UPDATE:

Customer Service ... Roman delivers as promised:

So as I had stated in my first post on page one, I decided to start the prep work for the supercharger early so I could send my DME out and have it back in time for install. I had checked with Roman to make sure that the kit and DME would get back to me in time for my next two days off. It looked as if I was going to have enough time to sleep with my manifold for a few nights before my next two days off. Well everything was going as planned until FedEx had created some delays for us I started to stress a little because I was on a tight time frame

Roman and I had called each other a few times to see what would be the best option to the delay problem we were facing. Roman insured me that he would do everything he could to make sure he would deliver as promised! A few hours later I got a PM from him with a few tracking numbers for my boxes. Roman had shipped out a new kit that very same day so that I would not have to wait for a follow up from FedEx

As many of you all know that MFEST is right around the corner and for vendors its a crazy busy time. With that in mind I was not expecting Roman to ship out the box that soon. I was actually expecting the kit to arrive next week so I was already making changes to my work schedule. Right as I was getting off work today my wife had called to tell me that a box came in. I was so happy you could probably see my smile a mile away When I got home I found a nicely packed box with half of the supercharger kit. Your probably thinking just half the kit? Not to worry ... The other half is on its way. Roman made sure to send a few things he had at his shop so that I could continue the install.

Itís really not ESS nor FedEx's fault but my own. You could say Iím like a kid in a candy store! I want everything and I want it now! So my advise to everyone who is planning on doing this yourself ... Make sure you give yourself enough time just in case things get delayed. Make sure you have a back up car just in case of delays (I have a daily driver). Most importantly for those that live in a condo, make sure you have a safe and secured location for your car to be worked on.

... Thank you again Roman for your awesome customer service
