Yas Marina Blue M3 on Matte Black GTS Wheels

(Tuesday, Sep 2 2014, 02:02PM)

Prior to picking up this beautiful Yas Marina Blue M4, this long time customer of ours had us build his Alpine White E92 M3. When he made the switch to the F82, he took his matte black BMW 359 GTS wheels with him. They may weigh a bit more than the M4's stock 19" wheels, but boy do they look awesome! To make this M4 look even meaner, we obviously installed the gloss black kidney grilles, side markers and paint-matched front reflectors. We then installed the very popular H&R sport lowering springs in conjunction with 15mm/12mm Macht Schnell wheel spacers and a 75mm stud conversion kit.

The next order of business was strapping this M4 to our dyno to get a baseline reading. With the temperatures reading over 100° F in our warehouse, the dyno numbers were a tad lower than usual, but we solved the problem by installing a pair of BMC high performance air filters. With the new filters installed and the OEM charcoal filters removed, we saw a solid jump of 12hp at the wheels, pushing this car into 400whp SAE territory in hot weather. Take a few minutes to look over this stunning example of an M4.

Saudi Arabian Monte Carlo Blue M5

(Tuesday, Sep 2 2014, 02:02PM)

This Monte Carlo Blue F10 M5 spent the first year of its life on the roads of Saudi Arabia before coming over to the US. Now that it's here, it swung by our facility for a few cosmetic mods. Already equipped with an Akrapovic Evolution titanium exhaust system, it was time to rid the car of its chrome trim. To do this we installed a set of iND gloss black painted kidney grilles, side markers and a trunk badge. There was no need for the painted front reflectors on this M5, as only North American cars are required to have them! Enjoy.

Borla ATAK Exhaust Installed on F30 335i

(Tuesday, Sep 2 2014, 02:02PM)

This stock Alpine White F30 335i was in need of a better sounding exhaust, so it came to us for a Borla ATAK system. Weighing in at just 37lbs, the ATAK exhaust system is made using 100% T-304 aircraft grade stainless steel and allows for a high volume exhaust note without any drone. The dual 3.5" rolled stainless steel tips feature a raised Borla logo, which really give the rear of the car a sporty and aggressive style. With its new full exhaust system, this N55 powered sedan will surely be more fun to drive than it ever was before.

Matte Black HRE Wheels for a Black Sapphire M4

(Tuesday, Sep 2 2014, 02:02PM)

Last time we had Bimmerpost member GOLFFRR's M4 at our facility, we installed a few painted exterior pieces to give it a sinister look. This time around, we made this F82 really look spectacular. First on the list was installing the ever popular H&R sport lowering springs, which drop the car approximately an inch for a sportier look. Next, we installed a set of 20" matte black HRE P101 forged wheels wrapped in Pirelli P-Zero tires to really bring the whole car together. One of the great things about the new F8X M3 & M4 is that the stock brakes actually look fantastic behind large, open face wheels like this. Take a look at how the custom painted HRE logo perflectly matches the OEM brake calipers. Enjoy!

Yesterday we took our M4 & Z4M out to Buttonwillow Raceway for a track day hosted by Speed District. The turnout was a mostly BMW crowd, especially the new F8X M3s & M4s. The on-track performance of our mostly stock M4 really blew us away; we ran it super hard, non-stop, all day and it never had a single issue. Plus, driving on the recently repaved track was just a euphoric experience. We had a ton of fun out there, and we really loved seeing so many of our customers putting their BMWs to proper use. Here are some photos from throughout the day. Enjoy!

Elegant Space Gray M3 ZCP

(Tuesday, Sep 2 2014, 02:02PM)

This elegant Space Gray M3 stopped by yesterday for a quick oil change. Featuring an iND painted cosmetic package, BMW carbon fiber front splitters, a BMW carbon fiber trunk spoiler and a Space Gray painted Metak diffuser, this E92 kept its exterior clean and simple. A bit of extra horsepower is provided by the Macht Schnell high performance air filter, while the Vorsteiner exhaust system gives this S65 a beastly tone. Inside, an M Power stitched e-brake handle adds a bit of flair to the Silverstone leather interior.

Marco Wittman, driver of one of the BMW M4 DTM cars, stopped by the Akrapovic factory in Slovenia to install an exhaust system on his own Fire Orange M6. Enjoy!

Austin Yellow gets IND Cosmetics & BMC Filters

(Tuesday, Sep 2 2014, 02:02PM)

Like most of the other M4s we've worked on so far, our Austin Yellow F82 really need to get rid of its chrome accents. A pair of BMW gloss black kidney grille surrounds took care of half of the chrome, while iND's gloss black painted side markers finished the other half. The ugly orange front reflectors were swapped with iND's painted replacements, but we kept the red rear reflectors because they match the taillights so nicely. We also went ahead and installed the painted keyhole cover and a gloss black trunk badge while we were finishing up the exterior details. Under the hood we installed iND's painted engine cover, which really makes the engine bay pop, along with a pair of BMC high performance air filters, which will help the S55 breath a lot easier. Enjoy.

Yet another M4 has come to us for the essential modifications. This Black Sapphire F82 got a set of H&R sport lowering springs, Macht Schnell 15mm/12mm spacers and iND painted front reflectors. The new low and wide stance makes the car look so much sportier, while the painted reflectors do their part in cleaning up the exterior. Although these three modifications are pretty minor, together they really do make a difference.

Yas Marina Blue M4 gets an Awron and a New Stance

(Tuesday, Sep 2 2014, 02:02PM)

For the past few weeks we've been absolutely inundated with modifying SoCal's newest F8X M3s & M4s, but we're not complaining! Of this recent influx, this beautiful Yas Marina Blue 6MT M4 is the latest to roll out of our facility. Like most other M4 drivers that come to our shop, the owner of this F82 really wanted a more aggressive stance for the car. To accomplish this, a set of H&R sport lowering springs in conjunction with 15mm Macht Schnell spacers brings the car closer to the ground while pushing the wheels out to their proper positions. To clean up the exterior, we installed iND's Yas Marina Blue painted front reflectors, rear reflectors and keyhole cover. Last, but definitely not least, this M4 received the very cool Awron DGA gauge. Enjoy.
