I had my $120.00 pulley kit installed today. I bought Matt's "blowout" special on Friday. It arrived on Saturday, too late for my mechanic to install it. (I don't work on my own car)

http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthread.php?t=195866

My 2001 330Cic has the "over-boosted" steering. BMWNA has denied me a steering retro-fit because I am not an original owner.

I have only driven the car about 15 miles, but I am very impressed.

First observations on the pulley is that the steering is tighter. I am glad that this upgrade got rid of some of the "boost".

I have a steptronic and from a standstill I can turn and squeal my tires. Usually I floor it and the DSC kicks in. Now, I can squeal my tires.

I believe that there is more power, I can feel a little more pull.

Need to drive it more. Will update with a furth review.

BTW - I have an ECIS intake that screams. It seems happier with a little more power. :woot:

The extra power pulleys give is not as dramatic as you make it seems. Theres a little kick in power when added in with other mods, but its not gonna make a car that can't peel out, all of a sudden peel out just because of the pulleys.

But for 120 bucks, why not.

Is Umnitza a trusted company with their performance mods?

Just try to understand better: 15 miles since you bought the car? or 15 miles with pullies installed?

15 miles with the Pulleys installed:)
I'm up to 500 miles now. The pulleys have been working out great. I haven't had any problems. Combined with the ECIS intake and me stomping on the gas, it makes driving more fun.

I'm still giving it a thumbsup. :thumbup:
