    Chrome Roll Bars and Headers

    I was looking for these Hamann bars for a long time. Finally I found one on ebay.de and jumped on them. I will post pictures as soon as they arrive and have them installed.
    The second upgrade is Supersprint headers. This must be the ultimate performance upgrade for an S62 engine. I will post my review as soon as they are installed.

    I already have Eisenmann race catbacks but these headers will increase sound level a little.

    How'd I miss those on EBay! I made multiple calls a few years ago trying to get a set of those roll bars made...no reply.

    You know what? After the purchase I was checking my paypal transaction history. I noticed that the seller of the Hamann bars are Olaf Hetze. So I sent him an email introducing my self. This is really a small world.

    Here are the recent upgrades:
    3.64 final drive, Quaife LSD, Supersprint headers and center resonators delete. 3.64 gearing should be the best performance upgrade for this car. As for the headers, there was always a hesitation after a wot in lower rpms. Now its gone. Throttle response is more crisp, engine revs more quickly and freely. LSD makes the tail happy. This what I like about LSD

    I would love a set of those roll bars if someone has a pair that they'd part with.

    Hmmm...So here's a thought, since those "Sport Bars" are no longer available...what if you took them to a fabricator and had them duplicated? Is there any interest from other owners on the forum in purchasing a set(s)?

    I would be very interested. Maybe if we got enough interest Hamman would do anotherbrun.

    I never quite liked the matching color of the "sport bars". The chrome is bright, but I could easily live with it... a brushed finish (similar to the Z8 interior pieces) would look pretty sharp. Shall we put this up as a new thread and or possible group buy?

    Yes, for sure, if you want to arrange one just start it up and I'll make it sticky for you.

    I've been super busy at work, but don't want to let this thread go...Can we move the pictures of the chrome roll bars to a new post to see if there's interest in a group buy or fabricating new sets for purchase?
