    What’s this going on? Have a thread?

    Nice man will follow it! Interested in the bracket, did he design it or was it purchased?

    It looks like it's been used, so I believe it was actually pulled from an M52 or M54 car running an ASA supercharger. Obviously the Alpina models (on V8s) have totally different mounting right to the engine w/ oil passing through the bracketry, so this had to come from a TM-12 or TM-15 car. Years ago when I put this supercharger on my E34 I crudely cut a bracket out of like 5/16" aluminum plate and did my best to make it fit. It worked, but it was crude. This unit looks like what I see on G Power/ESS cars running TM-12/TM-15 blowers.

    Have been swamped with Angry Ass thanks to you all but between that and waiting on a few components to get plated for the water to oil cooler I took the time to develop jack pads to make lifting the car a bit easier. We're machining these this coming week from UHMW but have been very happy with them over the last few months even being 3D printed in ABS.

    Little test fit video with the optional magnets.



    Also wrapped up production on our low profile engine mount arm for the S38 and M30 in the E34 and E32. This came about because of the need to fit certain Italian made headers on the S38 that won't fit with the stock engine mount arm. . . even after they tweaked the design. We took the opportunity to make sure it had plenty of clearance for forced induction applications as well.

    I'm currently working on billet aluminum interior door handle pulls as well as amber puddle lighting as an option. 3D printed mockup to check geometry.

    This will tie in with other touch points such as the climate knobs and possibly the light switch gear.

    Love to see the developments, especially on those door handles. Real metal would be a great touchpoint upgrade!

    Ol’ Greg is still at it! Nice to see after all these years.

    Recently purchased some door handles myself. Caught up with mr. NikosX recently as well.

    Hope all is well!

    Billet aluminum is so nice. I know who to bother now for the next engine swap
