BMW M42 Extractors

OK, this is by far, the MOST difficult thing for me to source.
Since I own a RHD car there are close to 0 alternatives to getting an aftermarket set of extractors...
Does anybody know of, or have any available?
There was a guy on the M42 forums in Malaysia who made a nice set, but that was nearly 6 years ago and have not had any luck contacting him.

I am not willing to spend AU$1500 to get a custom set made, I am looking to spend up to AU$600 incl postage, so if anyone can help out, that would be great.

Okay, it must be a difference in our languages... What is an "extractor" as you define it in Australia?

are you talking regular manifold or a custom set up?? (link goes to another link, which just dumps you on the forum menu..... what are we looking at??)


if you need an m42 exhaust mani, i have one i could probably send your way. shipping would be a lot, so not sure if that wouyld work for you or not....

This is what was supposed to be in the link.
The extractors/ exhaust manifold has to suit RHD cars.
I am not chasing the small manifold that BMW offers from factory.

gotcha. we yanks call those 'headers'.

and yeah, i would expect them to be a bit rare for 2 reasons.

1, m42

and 2nd, rhd.


steering will be in the way.


they are rather attractive, though.



good luck in your search, though.

I know the shop in malaysia who builds them, but I can not get into contact with the shop, so if anyone knows somebody in malaysia selangor USJ1 area, that would be a big help to me.
