Unlike the S54, BMW M never showed us the way to unleash the eargasm of 8x individual throttle bodies.
The GTS had a cool orange painted plastic plenum, and that was it.
A small Germany company actually developed a clever OEM style carbon plenum design in 2007, yet we didn't hear much about it until Summer 2020.
Prior to EuroConnex being a thing, I worked with Rene at CarboProject to do a Group Buy for its OEM+ carbon plenum.
The rest is history.
200+ have been delivered since, and the product has been refined thanks to member inputs.

This carbon plenum was developed using the lower housing of the OEM plastic plenum.
The top lip is fully replaced & sealed with an enlarged, thinner carbon lid to augment induction noises.
The Export version was developed in early 2021 from US member feedbacks. It has a thinner, pre-preg, carbon fiber lid for improved induction noise.
The plenum is available in gloss and matte 2 component hardened clear coat. The Gloss finish option is polished and wet sanded for a mirror like finish.
OEM M3 V8 badges, M Power sticker under the clear coat, or naked. You choose.
The lid design was simplified and the 2x functionless OE bolts were removed for sleek aesthetics.
Pricing includes a Genuine BMW core. You get to keep your OEM plenum.
This is a simple DIY. Plan for 60 to 120 minutes. Quick tip: grease the rubber couplers before fitting it, and make sure you seal is tight.
Short answer: yes. Long answer: read the entry :)
I take you into the backstory to this Connex, my unboxing and first drive impressions of the OEM+ S65 carbon plenum by CarboProject.
René is the original Connex: the one who first trusted me and started it all.
