    You used the crv booster? Do you have any pics of it installed? I'm totally ok with a bit of modification for the price. Mine was $360 cad with the connectors.

      I used the tesla booster but I removed the mounting flange from the rear. I assume you could do the same with the crv booster but because the crv flange is so thin I dont think youll need to. Heres some photos, I have custom mounts btw so your motor probably sits in a different place.

      I also had to modify the brake pedal so that the pushrod wasnt at such a harsh angle, heres a bad photo of that.

        Thanks! I'm actually getting ready to mount it tomorrow. I'll be making custom mounts and whatever parts I can. Looks like you've already been down that road. Looks good!

          Have you driven her yet with the new booster?

            Unfortunately not yet, I bled the brakes this past weekend and that went well, I tested it on jack stands with the car on and off and there is for sure a difference when the booster is powered.
            I won't be able to do much driving till I get a tune, so basically on and off a trailer.

              I got mine mounted. I had to relocate it further inbehind the strut tower; unfortunately my headers don't give me much clearance. I know its not pretty but it will work

                Just wanted to follow up here, I've put about 600 miles of street driving on my v8 E30 with the Ibooster and I've had no issues. Far less pedal effort than I had with manual brakes. I for sure recommend for anyone looking to go with this booster option. Heres a couple of photos.

                  Looks good. The cool thing about this booster is it can be mounted in basically any orientation with a remote reservoir. is that the one from the CR-V? I like the sticker too, lol.

                    We need to figure-out how to upload different pedal-effort profiles to them. They're supposed to have less assist during regen braking, etc.

                    Very, very cool!!

                      The fact that I could tilt it at such an angle was a huge help. It is a Tesla unit with the 4 bolt mounting flange removed so it could get tighter to the firewall. It is still the Tesla MC but with the CRV remote reservoir adapter attached to it. Then I’m using the 2002 auto trans reservoir, one outlet for the brake master one for the clutch. I put the sticker on it to get peoples attention lol.

                        I’m rebuilding an E30 I saved from a crack house. Follow along on my Instagram and give me some motivation and tips!

                          WOW, this is really cool.

                          Has anyone driven with the electric booster yet? Any more info on brake balance and feel? It looks like the e30 m3/e32 master is ~25mm for both ports, but the 325i has seperate dimension for the front and rear

                          It looks like it is a direct fit to the pedal assembly, just a little too short it says in the first post. Anyone looked into a clevis pin swap to fix this? Is it long enough to interact with the brake light switch? Pictures of assembly in car would be nice

                            First go uploading pictures here, but... this is a RHD tesla model s booster (1043885-00-A, as pictured). Leaving the community but I'd love to see it go with someone in the e30 world. Was planning on using it in an LS swap, but I'm in the process of selling the car so, here we are!
