Excellent! Less than 390 shipped! Macht Schnell needs to re-evaluate their pricing.

Interested. I would be really cool if they could make the driver side one longer to smooth out the kinks.

I tried ordering there about 5 months ago, they said the website had not been updated. Needless to say, they didn't have them in stock. I bet you they will call/email you and tell you they don't have them.

Same price from Turner directly? Yeah, it was 25 bucks off.

I got my TTP today and unfortunately they are extremely low quality.

The overall fabrication quality is medium to low but the real significant issue is the quality of the threads to attach the sensors to the pipes. The threads and crooked, damaged, malformed, oily and full or metal chips. I highly doubt they will seal under temperature and pressure. I've written a fairly stern email to my sales rep at Turner and asked them to resolve the issue as well as elevate my concerns up both their sales and engineering teams. I realize you can't have a low price, top quality and a short lead time. Unfortunately in this case I got zero out of three of those key deliverables.

Update: I got a rapid reply from Turner, my sales guy and the sales manager. They are taking care of me. They will inspect all items in stock, rebuild one in house if required and send me two good parts immediately. They have also offered a small additional discount for my trouble. They are also investigating the cause of the manufacturing problem through engineering/R&D. They have the same philosophy that parts for a BMW an especially for an M3 need to look like they belong on an M3, even if they are not visible. Thanks TMS!

In short. Give your new TTPs a careful inspection BEFORE installing. Standard mechanics practice but worth a reminder.

Many thanks for the heads-up.

Do you have any pictures, specifically of what to look for? Thanks again.

If you can tell the difference between good clean threads and really crappy ones you will be fine. I did not bother with pictures as I had a strong hunch they would not really be illustrative of the issue.
