The OG Connex
With the recent appreciation of E46 M3s, many owners seek higher quality parts to restore, conserve or improve upon the original designs. Many owners have extensive carbon fiber in their engine bay, notably from various CSL style airboxes on the market.
I reached out to René at CarboProject - a high end carbon fiber manufacturer in Germany, to discuss new products for the E46 M3. He has been making custom pre-preg and autoclaved carbon fiber components for BMW M cars since 2003.

Building upon E46 M3 CSL carbon catalogue
Made with 100% in prepreg carbon fibre in their facilities in Germany, René has developed a negative mold of the OEM front air intake, or otherwise called the intake suction hood.
The kit is 2 piece, with the upper part being a complete pre-preg and autoclaved carbon fiber component glued to the bottom OEM plastic part that directs air to the OEM intake. The pictures demonstrate the upper pre-preg carbon part of the product.
The carbon is available 1x1 or 2x2 carbon weave and is cured in autoclave. The product is clear coated in 2 component hardened clear coat for a durable finish and resistant to the high temperatures of the engine bay. It is available in Gloss or Matte finish.
