    I was talking to Ash about this on saturday.
    Unfortunately, they are next to useless, as they'll only fit the M3, and the M3 ones never have much in the way of wear or damage, so i can't see them ever needing to be replaced either

    There are only two products required to make the universe work properly: Duct tape and WD40. 


    If it moves (and it shouldn't): duct tape. 
If it doesn’t move (and it should): WD40.

    Everything else is just stuff.

    ouch thats a bit more than i wanted to spend, might be worth seeing of an engineering company could reprofile my existing cams and see if that would be a cheaper option

    i reckon it would be, but not by much, i'm afraid.. let us know if you get any quotes, as more of us might be interested.

    Found this on the US Ebay site,these would fit,not cheap though
    http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Schri...item1c15260329 Might be cheaper to source these from German Ebay though or closer to home

    Surely wouldnt it be worth just saving a little longer and getting an M3 Evo engine?

    Pretty popular for BMW as well. My bro had some in his E30.

    Kent cams might do some custom jobbies as they are regrinds anyway.
