Charge Air Duct blown off

Post by WATTS 235i » Fri Jun 22, 2018 5:11 pm

Can anyone help the charge air duct blew off my M235i the other day on the motorway and I need a new one as I put it back on but it’s damaged.

The part at BMW is a insane £260 for a bit of plastic.

Can anyone help source a cheaper alternative either second hand / scrappers (anyone know of any) or alternative aftermarket?

BMW part number: 13717604033

Thanks in advance.

Why did it blow off ? turbo/turbos over boosting ?
Current 2015 F22 Melbourne Red 220D loaded with many extras.
Gone 2012 E82 Space Grey 118D Sports Plus standard spec.

Yes I was running more boost and it had a hissy fit. Any ideas on a sensible cost alternative?

Wish I had seen his chargepipe before getting the Forge motorsport one!

Watts - looking at the pictures - looks like ID of ebay CP will be much less than Forge CP so wouldn't of helped yr boosted car's performance at all !!!

FWIW I went with ER CP and TIC hardpipes as they're larger smoother ID so helps as opposed hinders the flow. BP

Probably wouldn’t trust a cheap one, I recently had charge pipe go, replaced with Forge Motorsport one from @MLPerformance
