Default Pistons what to use

As itís a new year. Hopefully an interesting topic... As with ongoing project. Was considering these in std size, on this 100k block just for the hell of it , if things measure up still in spec regarding bore , didnít want to go oversized to much hassles ,, about a grand for six pistons with rings etc , Which isnít much more than a set of oem rings from bmw. Anybody have experience of aftermarket pistons, ????

I'd go for the Mahle ones - they are effectively OE quality (for good reason)

Try speaking to Andrew Lang at:
www.langracing.com

Very good rates and even with the import duty a mate got some for his M3 for cheaper than in the UK.

The link for the pistons you want:
https://store.langracing.com/mahle-m...s-for-bmw-s54/

They do standard compression (11.5) or 12.3 if you have someone that can remap the car .

Don't be tempted into using anything else....
