    We will definitely do the best we can. 1/4 miles times are tough because the test cars are not cp-e property so it's up to the owners for the 1/4 mile times. 1/4 mile times are tough too because of driver experience.

    One question from all N54 owners. At the "release date" will people be able to buy the kit READY or should they order like at Vargas for instance?
    I hope you'll make like 10-20 kits ready upto the release date.

    Go easy guys, these types of things are not easy. So many people on here think that announcing your are doing some testing and its going to take little longer is a bad thing. Just like we got ripped apart for stage 2 delays. If you guys knew what it took to make a kit even semi close to this, you would all pipe down and congratulate CP-e for taking the time to make it right. Also how many of you in here are even in the market to buy this kit, my guess is not many. Keep up the good work CP-e. Looking forward to what the kit can do.

    from my experience 1/4 mile is all about your 1/8th so i don't think that's a proper test. rather see something in the mile where you can really see how fast a car is

    Honestly, wtf do people think? You just buy some turbos and throw them on? It's that simple?

    I love the whole "what's taking so longer" crap from people who aren't even in the market (not saying people here, just generally) or who don't develop anything themselves. Oh hey why is an upgrade nobody has ever done taking so long? Why don't you have transmission upgrades for a tranny that nobody has the codes for? Why haven't you cracked 1024 bit encryption yet?

    I have a better idea, why don't some of you STFU and let the tuners do their jobs.

    Happy Holidays.

    I just wish someone would improve the rain sensing wipers on the 3 series.

    99% of the people who will make a comment, condescending or not, in this thread, are not in the market for a turbo kit of this sort anyways. Yet that will not stop them by making themselves heard for whatever reason.

    Hahaha. They really are terrible. I'm convinced the "sensor" they're connected to is nothing more than an interval timer hooked up to a random number generator. There is really no rhyme or reason to how they go off, no matter what setting they are on.

    But back on topic, it'll be interesting to see what they kit can do even though I'll never be in the market to buy one.

    Back off topic, mine work pretty well, and I'm not sure this will help you any, but the last time my windshield was replaced (very common in AZ due to rocks on highways) I was talking to the installer and he mentioned that not only do a lot of guys screw up installing the rain sensor, but it's very common for them to get glue on the sensor itself, which ruins its ability to read correctly.

    If this thread turns into talk about rain sensors bans might be warranted.

    Sticky, maybe you should make a poll at what cost people would buy the new turbo kitClick here to enlarge I have a feeling there will be a very low number buying 10k+ kits (that's probably what E90 will cost in few years if not less).

    Good point.

    I'd absolutely be in the market, iiiiif it wasn't two massive twins, and i didn't have a steering rack there...

    I'm still in for pushing the platform, so no complaints here as long as it comes eventually haha

    exactly!

    they work amazingly in moderate to moderate-heavy rain... but the 'sensitivity' slider thing does absolutely nothing (seriously, not hard guys)... in heavy rain, they don't go fast enough so you have to push it up manuallly...

    in light rain you have to pulse it on and off pressing the button, or it does these random 'ghost wipes' for no reason...

    it really only has 3 settings, rather than infinite variability >_<.. sorta too fast, just right, and sorta too slow. lol.

    you SHOULD be able to leave it on at all times, and have it not wipe without rain.. but nooope.

    ED: sorry sticky, i won't talk about the rain sensors any more LOL.

    Not sure what purpose that would serve. Ultimately, the market will decide the ideal price for the kit.

    If the kit performs well and is of excellent quality (which it will be, judging by the pictures), people will buy it. This current delay is for improving the reliability in the long run, that means cp-e is in the pursuit of quality and they are doing the development and marketing in an honest way.

    As for the price, if the kit delivers good performance, people will buy it whatever the cost. A true speed freak will always find a way to justify cost. Take the motorcycle guys for example. A high end 650+ hp turbocharger kit for the Hayabusa costs as much as a BRAND NEW motorcycle, yet people still buy them.

    I'm just really looking forward to see how their fueling solution works out.
