I too think the Steel Rear Sprocket Drive was Spring 2105.

What is the max Neoprene version?

Is it a separate supplier??

Photos below show before and after the Supermax treatment.

Supermax are based in California, cost is slightly more than the cast iron one but there are 2 major benefits:

1. You know it will fit your car as it came off it in the first place.

2. I'm not dragging a boat anchor around with me especially as it is unsprung weight.

Yes there a few M3W in the UK with them.

Mine was back in the UK within 14 days of sending, shipping and import duty add to the cost about £30 to send and £90 import duty if I remember.
I have not fitted mine yet, I managed to acquire a freebie worn out sprocket and had it done ready for when mine wears out.

Yes it should be, but a couple of things to watch for; if the existing sprocket has the side flanges on both sides then yes it is a straight swap (and the wheel hub will be anodised black rather than the silver grey of the older hub) if the sprocket only has a side flange on the inboard side then you need the later hub or to machine the older style hub. On a 2015 M3W I would check first that you actually don't already have the steel sprocket! I can't remember off hand when they introduced the steel one though I think it was sometime in the spring of 2015.


Thanks RedThree.

Does the material of the front sprocket not result in nearly as much wear? Makes me wonder if one were getting the rear done up in supermax style what about the front at the same time. Or is it hardy enough as is.

I had a pre production test sprocket fitted in Jan 2015. I think they went onto production M3Ws from around mid 2015 onwards.
