This is a partial rip from the 335 forum so all credits go to forum member imaznumkay who did the original list. I Just edited the list and took off/updated some products that dont or do apply to the E89 on my knowledge.

Can you please correct the Eisenmann part? The system for the E89 is a downpipe back exhaust.

I hope Bastuck eventually release an exhaust (listen to one on the 335i!) - that's the only one I would upgrade to over the 'is' system which sounds excellent already...I had one comment that it sounds like an F1!

Hi,

You can remove this "Evolution Racewerks Bov/Diverter kit". It does not fit, I've tried it and the end of the pipe routes right into the side of the long block.

Are you sure? Did you contact ER to see if they sent the correct model because they have the chargepipe under the E89 Section on their website.

Have you had it installed yet? If yes, was the installation easy or it needed custom work? Photos/Video would be much appreciated

Yes there is a couple of guys running these. If I were you I would hold off on buying an intercooler though as I have some insider info that an intercooler is going to be released for the z4 that is half the cost of the stett one.
