  • Evo brake ducts available? Alternatives?

    Does anyone know if the ducts are available again?

    I have a set of replica fiberglass ones I bought from a former member here, and they have been sitting since I bought them and had them painted, and.....they warped pretty bad. Useable for a track car I guess, but not a street car IMO.
    does anyone make them in abs plastic or something similar?


    I guess I have a set to sell once I find a replacement set that actually fit properly.:(

            Not sure who this ebay seller is in Germany () but he has lots of good M3 stuff, is very helpful when it comes to delivery etc etc.

            Not sure if you wanted the front pieces or the ducting but he says he can sort out OEM if you want.

              My car's PO got what look like the VAC ducts. I am in the process of having some connectors fabricated to deal with the oval -> round intake more elegantly than just strapping some pliable ducting to the intakes themselves.

                Were remade I think by BMW a little while back. They show up with ( Euro ) prices on the BMW Mobile Tradition parts page. Silly expensive though.

                    You are not mistaken. I knew that was Marcus, hence the smiley face.

                    Some good stuff there.

                      I am hoping for a set of the VAC ones for christmas. They say they are clip in but does anyone know if they come with the clips?

                        I bought the VAC CF ducts. They just snap in. No clips required.

                          Thanks, I just found you Mike Shaw makes them for VAC so I'm sure quality is great and I'm very glad to hear they just snap in. Are your's functionally cooling the brakes? If so, do you mind posting a pic of your setup? I just found out my wife ordered a set for me so I'm thinking ahead to make them functional.

                            To make them work correctly you need backing plates behind the rotors.

                            Bimmerworld has those and you don't need to take off the hub with the bimmerworld ones.
                            They are/were a sponsor of SIGFEST and I won them a few years ago.

                            To attach the hoses to the evo ducts I took a small piece of the male end of a piece of galvanized flue pipe used for water heaters and bent one end oval.

                            The flue pipe has the flair to accept the hose, the gal treatment to resist rust, it's light and dirt cheap. That's why.

                            I used rivets to attach it to my evo ducts but you could use strong double sided tape.

                            For on track work I love them, huge difference in pad life.

                            I keep mine blocked off for the street. I shoved a piece of sponge deep into the ducting.

                              So no one has been able to source a connection piece between the VAC ducts and the bimmerworld duct kit?
                              Also, has anyone published instructions on how to install the VAC ducts and what to do with the wiring for the lights they replace? I have not been able to find anything. Thx!!
