I too contemplated buying the MTEC3 but felt that $200 for a set was too much. I went with the "7W Cree" bulbs and really can't complain. Of course they're probably not as bright as the MTEC's...

I did, but the site only gives me the part# for the fuel pump. I'm not sure that it includes the hoses as well. It appears the repair kit listed above has the hoses as well as the pump.

I heard the same thing from a BMW tech. Stating that BMW basically combines 2 of their in-line 6 to make the V12 in the 760. He didn't elaborate on which one though.
