Most stealthy looking pulley

Hey guys,
I'm looking for a pulley, but I'm trying to make it look as stealthy as possible so that techs won't notice it when I go in for service/warranty work. So far I'm thinking the Macht Schnell kit looks the most inconspicuous and is very fairly priced.

Or should I just spend a little more and get the Dinan pulley and never look back?

Thanks ahead of time,
Matt

Im no fanboy brotha got my turner on my 08 E90 with an AFE elite intake. Can definetly notice the car pulls harder. Its not a huge dif but enough to notice. The turner motorsports pullet is all black . So it cant get much stealther than that. The AA is brushed aluminum i believe so its more noticable.... Give it a look im sure u wont be disapointed. Turners been racing M3's for a while so they know their shit i hope lol

Be careful with the stealth black paint - splash it a little and they might think part of the engine is missing!

Oem pulley is silver. The best choice is dinan. It is the best design. On their pulley the grooves are different on each side. That way the power steering does not get effected.

Most vendors offer a replacement crank pulley only, Macht Schnell and Rogue utilize a dual pulley design and use standardized belts (rather than proprietary) which can be found at any auto supply warehouse if replacements are needed during maintenance time.



Dynorun 21: Baseline
Dynorun 33: Macht Schnell S65 Performance Underdrive Pulleys, OEM Intake, Stock Exhaust

More info on this dyno session can be seen in this thread: http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=567651

The Macht Schnell pulleys also allow the AC compressor to not be underdriven, since the clutch disengages at wide open throttle (WOT) and provide a considerable amount of power throughout the entire powerband.
