The slim cowl will start being developed as soon as we launch the snouts, Bespoke services, and the paddle shifters!

As it stands we never sleep so adding another project would only delay several others :)

What's the slim cowl? Was considering the M3 conversion but would definitely be interested in an alternative :)

Skim cowl is/was a super slimmed down carbon fiber based cowl for those running the BMS Cowl Filters.

The concept was to have something low cost, nice, and simple to manage water that falls onto the windshield versus how it slides down directly onto the engine and rear turbo charger.

This project I am personally invested into since I hate getting car washes and seeing all the steam shoot up from my engine. Water + Turbo = bad bad.

I would be interested in this too but would need to see it installed first.

We have been slow to post on forums as the busy season is upon us.

However here are some recent projects

Very slowly unfortunately. OUr time is spent making items so our developments are slowing down a bit. We are looking to bring on another team member but the training curve is very long due to the complexity of CF.

I'd Buy a nicer cowl too. Put me on the list for a 135i slim cowl.

Engine cover is actually next on my list. We are modifying the cover a bit for ST cars, upgraded coils, Port Injection Rails, and stock.

We start mold making middle of next week.
Been waiting for this! cant wait for the finished product. Keep up the great work guys
