David - does this include overseas shipping ???

Milarsky,
I am also interested in this retrofit / upgrade. Please let me know what is involved, additional parts needed, anything that will help me decide to go ahead!

Hi Andy,

No, none of my prices include shipping. If one of you decides to buy multiple items, shipping will be of much better value.

Hi guys,

This part number works perfectly with the E46 heater valve. I believe the part number says it's for the outer temp sensor, but it's the same.
61132359999

I've bought a vemo-kit that comes with pins included, no soldering or hacking required. Set me back $12.

FYI the plates are sold out. Let me know if you guys want more; I'm happy to make a second batch if there's need for it.

Thank you for putting together a total solution and for shipping it so quickly.

Thank you and glad I could help!

Since a lot of you asked, I'm making another 5 adapter sheets. :)

Pricing:
-Adapter sheet: $15
-FEBI Valve + adapter sheet set: $120
-FEBI Valve + adapter sheet + VEMO connector set: $140

Shipping to US (roughly):
-Sheet: $25
-Sets: $35

I will clarify these when ordering, since the pricing is constantly changing. The FEBIs also became a tad more expensive at my local parts shop :/

Here's a picture of my engine bay with it installed (still need to connect the lines, hopefully I'll have some time next week):

Good Morning,
I am working on getting the retrofit on my E28 and wanted to purchase a bracket for the heater control valve. Do you still have them available?

Hello David,
If you are still making/selling the kits please put me down for a complete kit (bracket, valve, connector, etc.).

Thanks!

Do these brackets only work on E28s with a vacuum booster?

I have not tested them, but I suppose the bracket should work, as the bolt pattern is the same due to the master cylinder.
