    Hey guys,

    now that we've got some testing and feedback under our belts, we would like to start our Official Pre-Order for the YCW Engineering Dry-Carbon Driveshaft:

    Some images of our processing:

    MSRP will be $1499.95. This is around $100 more expensive than our competitors, but we are the only company to make them from 100% Dry Carbon Fibre (you can google wet vs dry carbon), and the only company that can balance them to 12000rpm with minimal vibration.

    During back-to-back comparison tests, all of our competitors carbon propshafts vibrated like crazy once spinning over 5000rpm, as none of them possess the machines that we do to manufacture custom joints to within 0.02mm tolerance. Ours are also stress tested to withstand over 5500nm torque (that's over 4000lbs)

    You can also view a review of our current M3 fitment (with images during installation) here: http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1311848

    Pre-Order
    10 Confirmed Buyers - 30% Discount off MSRP ($1050) + shipping
    15 Confirmed Buyers - 35% Discount off MSRP ($975) + shipping
    20 Confirmed Buyers - 40% Discount off MSRP ($900) + shipping

    Shipping to NA/EU/AU via UPS: $150
    Shipping to other countries: Please PM

    With the design work on the flanges almost complete, we should be able to start making a couple of test samples in December to test for installation/fitment. Providing everything goes smoothly with those, we would be looking at around January to begin processing of the production batch (i.e this Pre-Order list). Whilst we are adding to the Pre-Order list now, we won't start taking deposits (50% required) until after we have finished the test samples for installation/fitment.

    What about people looking for m3 rear fitment wth their n54?
     
  3. These look super nice. Also, does the fitment support e90? Sedans

    For people wanting custom lengths, I'm told if we can get 5 people, he can do it.

    If we can get an oem sample (with modifications already done), we can make a custom fitment with 5 confirmed buyers

    Yes, all E9X's are the same fitment. It is only the transmission/carrier that determines the difference

    We are hoping to start a few test sets next month, and provided these fit ok, we'll start taking deposits for the production batch in January. They should be shipped before March, yes

    Please let me know which fitment to add you under :)

    We need to get hold of an oem sample to take measurements from, and we can make the DCT fitments also

    That is correct :)

    I'm guessing the "start a conversation" is the same as a pm?

  19. Is the confirmed buyer number total across the platforms or per application?
