M Performance Parts for a YMB F82

(Monday, Nov 24 2014, 08:49AM)

This Yas Marina Blue M4 swung by our shop last night for some BMW M Performance parts. Like our own car, we installed the carbon fiber front splitters, ABS lower splitter and ABS side skirts to achieve an OEM+ exterior. Matching gloss black kidney grilles and side markers added the finishing touches to the exterior, while a personalization coding session unlocked several functional features for a superior driving experience. We really love how the dark M Performance pieces look against the Yas Marina Blue paint! Enjoy.

Alpine White M4 gets a Drop

(Monday, Nov 24 2014, 08:49AM)

Almost every M owner that comes through our shop seems to agree on one thing: their car needs a drop. Such is the case with this Alpine White M4, which opted for the popular KW HAS adjustable lowering spring kit. With the ride height dialed-in we then installed a few more popular goodies, including gloss black kidney grilles, iND painted reflectors and a pair of BMC high performance air filters. Sometimes, like is the case for this F82, a car needs only a few small tweaks to be considered perfect by its owner. Enjoy.

Vorsteiner V-FF 103 Wheels Installed on GT-R

(Monday, Nov 24 2014, 08:49AM)

Vorsteiner recently released their new Flow Forged wheel line-up and we installed one of the very first sets on this Nissan GT-R. Available in four different styles, Vorsteiner's new Flow Forged wheels are on average 25% lighter, yet substantially stronger than traditional cast construction wheels. Featuring the new Carbon Graphite finish, this set of 20" V-FF 103 wheels are 12" wide in the rear to accommodate the massive 335/30 tires.  Take a quick look at how these sharp and aggressive wheels compliment this Black GT-R.

A Stock M4 Upgrades to Akra

(Monday, Nov 24 2014, 08:49AM)

Many of our customers have precise plans as to how they will modify their M car prior to its delivery. Such is the case with this Yas Marina Blue M4. In love with everything but the exhaust, the owner of this F82 came by to have us replace the OEM system with something better: the Akrapovic Evolution titanium exhaust system. Beautifully crafted from titanium and carbon fiber, this full exhaust saves weight, looks fantastic and instantly brings the S55 to life with its aggressive sound. Even though the rest of the car has been kept stock, this first-rate exhaust system will be more than enough to turn some heads. Enjoy.

This Titanium Silver 645Ci came to our facility for a brake upgrade. Having already been lowered on H&R coilovers and fitted with a set of 20" VMR V710 wheels, it was finally time to ditch the OEM brakes. Opting for a set of red StopTechs, we installed the 6-piston system in the front and the 4-piston system in the rear with slotted rotors all around. Not only will this new BBK offer dramatically better stopping power, but it looks absolutely fantastic on this sporty E63. Enjoy.

Jet Black E90 M3 on F8X 513M Wheels

(Monday, Nov 24 2014, 08:49AM)

This elegant M3 sedan is modified where it counts. Replacing the stock wheels are a set of Style 513M wheels from an F80 M3, which weigh only 19lbs for the fronts and 21lbs for the rears. Behind the 18" wheels are AP Racing big brakes mounted up to a set of KW V3 coilovers for optimal braking and handling performance. Inside, an M Performance Alcantara steering wheel and Pedal Haus aluminum pedals provide both a sportier look and feel every time the car is driven. The body has been kept simple, with just a Challenge carbon fiber race trunk, iND painted reflectors and BMW gloss black kidney grilles adorning the exterior. Enjoy.

Alpine White E30 M3 Build

(Monday, Nov 24 2014, 08:49AM)

Having previously worked on his E90 M3 and F06 M6, this devoted M enthusiast returned to our facility with his newly acquired E30 M3. Like most cars that are approaching 30 years old, this 1987 Alpine White M3 was in need of some maintenance and restoration, but we weren't going to stop there. During the time E30 spent with us, we attacked every corner of the car to create a clean, high performance daily driver.

The first order of business for this M3 was improving the S14 motor. A VAC 2.5L stroker kit, carbon fiber intake system, custom stainless steel exhaust  and a custom tune gave this naturally aspirated 4-cylinder some additional power. Next we focused on the suspension, where we installed a new set of coilovers, camber plates, polyurethane bushings and front/rear anti roll bars. Hidden behind the gold HRE 501 Vintage Series 3-piece wheels, a front Brembo big brake kit, rear cross-drilled rotors and stainless steel brake lines provide massive braking performance improvements.

The complete interior along with a pair Recaro Speed seats were stripped and re-upholstered in a beautiful brown leather/suede combo by Top Stitch. A new dash cluster, steering wheel, shift knob, short shift kit and an Awron DGA vent gauge give this E30 the tactile sensation of a brand new car. For the exterior, we installed a carbon fiber front splitter, a carbon fiber rear wing, new HID headlights, matte black kidney grilles and various new trim pieces add the finishing touches to this first generation M3.

While it may not be nearly as fast or high-tech as the other M cars in this owner's collection, this is the M3 that started it all. We're usually working on brand new BMWs day in, day out, so its actually a treat for us to dive into one of these legends. Take a moment to look over these photos and enjoy!

Spacers for a Black Sapphire 428i Gran Coupe

(Monday, Nov 24 2014, 08:49AM)

This beautiful 428i Gran Coupe has been equipped with nearly the complete M Performance catalog. Featuring the carbon fiber front lip spoiler, carbon fiber mirror caps, ABS rear diffuser, stainless exhaust system, pedals, interior trim and shift lever, this Black Sapphire F36 is certainly dressed to impress. For its next round modifications it dropped by our facility for a few items. First on the list, we installed a pair of iND painted reflectors to eliminate the ugly orange reflectors and complete the blackout look. Next we installed some Macht Schnell wheel spacers, 15mm in front, 12mm in rear, to push the wheels out to the edges of the fenders for that aggressive look. This won't be the last time we'll be seeing this Gran Coupe; there are plans for a dropped the suspension somewhere in the near future. Enjoy!

Silverstone E92 M3 From Florida

(Monday, Nov 24 2014, 08:49AM)

One of our customers from Florida, M3Post member lE92l, recently sent us these photos of his beautiful Silverstone M3 on his new set of wheels. Finished in gunmetal, these super deep concave Forgestar F14s in conjunction with a KW HAS lowering kit give this E92 a perfectly sporty and aggressive stance. For some additional power, this M3 has been fitted with a Borla ATAK exhaust system, underdrive pulleys, intake scoops, an ECU tune and a performance air filter. Carbon fiber exterior components include a trunk spoiler, front lip and kidney grilles, while iND painted reflectors add the finishing touches. Take a look at how pretty this M3 looks in some wet Florida weather. Enjoy!

(Monday, Nov 24 2014, 08:49AM)

With the 2014 MotoGP season coming to an end in Valencia, championship winner Marc Marquez was awarded this beautiful Frozen Red M4. Every year the BMW M award is given to the MotoGP rider that finishes with the most points. Last year rookie Marquez was awarded a Frozen Black M6, but this year, with 10 consecutive wins and 13 total wins, he definitely earned this F82. We're sharing these images because they're the first to show an F8X in a Frozen paint job, so check it out and enjoy!
