    Max of 2K or say 1k - 1.5k for just the supercharger unit so that I can source the other parts myself.

    The term 'Kit' is a bit loose. I bought/imported the DASC kit for my Z3 a few years back, that cost me around £3k and was pretty comprehensive as they had put alot of work into developing it.
    However, once you get it running there is a fair bit to do after that to ensure the engine stays in tack. Clutch needed replacing, exhaust etc , the list goes on. thats not to mention brakes and suspension.
    Add another £1k to the 'kit' for getting it right.

    I think circa £3-4k for something in the UK is about right, anything less and you are kidding yourself (unless you put alot of DIY work into it yourself).
