Hi All

My 35i needs a new HPFP i have one on order but so for it has taken nearly 3 weeks to arrive and i am starting to think the supplier is struggling to get one. Has anyone had any experience with the none BMW ones or the refurbs?

From what I’ve read I’d studiously avoid any of the Chinese copies..as to refurb I guess it depends whose doing the refurb..

MLPerformance been slow but cannot fault them as they were good when talking to them.

All fitted and done but I lost 2 bloody nuts from the manifold so got to wait till tomorrow to fire it up.

And it's alive. Top tip when you doing this job keep a spare M7 hex nut for the intake manifold. I lost 2 and took 3 days to get a new one.

Car feels great!!
