Has anyone heard of vibrant? I see them mostly being sold on carjunky.com the parts look like they aer good quality but I have no idea of their background. I want to get the exaust and CAI. Does anyone know if they are actually good? Go check out the exaust and CAI for a 1995 325i. It's one of those sites where you can't link to it and get back to me. Thanks. Everything there is SOO cheap! It's 30 bucks for a strut bar and the quality looks sturdy

I wonder how much it would cost to go to Home Depot and make your own?

Fifty? Yea. Then it probably wouldn't be worth it to make your own. Don't know much about sharking though, sorry. Maybe if you can afford the tickets.

Look in the door jam on the drivers side and it tells you the month and year


I have never heard of vibrant or carjunky.com for bmws. I would doubt the quality. Also I would spend the a little extra on the CAI and strut bar personally. You can find them for $130 at Cosmosracing.com to $350 at turnermotorsport.com. I bought mine from ECISbmw.com for $230. Check those out.

Sharking will give you some power(more than a CAI will) and there are a bunch of places to look. I like www.turnermotorsport.com.

I've heard of and seen Vibrant products. Their products aren't the best in the industry but they do work. The core of their business comes from selling to the Jap-tuner boys. I have seen a 1996 RX-7 with Vibrant products and accessories... Haven't seen any Vibrant products on beemers though.
