^ Yes that. The process is more complicated and not as pretty on 05-06 cars.

I did a similar setup but with a Mishimoto catch can. It works well, usually gets a couple tablespoons of gunk after a track weekend.

Reused the stock fittings and mounted the catch can like this to the firewall using the bracket and some self-drilling screws. Going to test this at the track in two weeks, will report back on how it works. Total cost was under $150.

Ya, looks good! Good mounting for those with ABS there too.

Doesn't even have to be coded out - the software is the same regardless of which year M3 you have.

^ But doesn't is require a jenky looking plug, or an 01-04 air rail?
Eithey way it's cleaner, simpler, and cheaper for 01-04 cars.

Saad racing makes them, kinda expensive but I love how it takes up that empty space from the factory air pump.

That looks good in black. Though I wonder how it looks with the tubes attached. For almost 500 it would have to look super clean for me to consider something like this. The drug bin solutions look pretty clean already. It would be nice to fill that empty SAP spot though. Hmmm...

I suppose. I found an early rail pretty cheap (~$25 I think) on eBay way back when (and now run a CSL rail). And if you don't care about cosmetics, a vacuum cap works fine.

Here's one right now for < $40 - https://m.ebay.com/itm/02130CR-BMW-E...QAAOSwZKBZJJDx
