    I have 2004 330i ZHP 6spd, and I am thinking about doing an M3 rear end swap. Like what will I all need? how long did it take? Can I use my current driveshaft? any fitment issues? and in general, if there are any pointers from someone that has done it before. Thanks.

    Hey guys, I am looking to upgrade my intake boots and I wanted to know what options are out there. All I can find as an upgrade over stock is the Mishimoto silicone boots, but they are all located in EU. After shipping the price is just outrageous. Anything will help, thank you!
