The holiday season is upon us! Following large meals and full stomachs, it is typical of many to get out and do some shopping.

Especially with 10% off site-wide on participating products including free shipping to the Continental U.S. (US48)! Not to mention offers on suspension, brakes, spacers, exhaust, and more (additional offers cannot be combined with site-wide 10% off deal but still qualify for free shipping).
The newest generation of the M3 has certainly set a whole new standard for the historic line of cars. Featuring the 3.0L inline six twin turbo S55 engine paired with either an optional 6-speed manual or 7-speed dual clutch transmission (DCT), harnessing its 425 hp is an exhilarating experience. Offered only as a 4-door due to the M4 taking the 2-door counterparts place, the M3 is no less of a car. The F80 has two distinct sides to it that make the car that much better. When you want to just cruise, stay comfortable, and have room for miscellaneous items, the M3 has got you covered. On your own and want to have some fun? Just switch modes and step on it! The M3 will tackle whatever you are brave enough to throw it at.
Injen Technology has been known for their quality performance air intake systems and has been a favorite among the F8X BMW group. An air intake system is a relatively quick modification for quick performance increases. Delivering more air that is colder and denser to the engine, for potentially massive boosts in horsepower and torque, the driving excitement level changes indefinitely. With an increase in throttle response, and not to mention sound, you won’t be able to get over the sheer sound of air rushing through the intake in to the engine. Other enjoyable features of the intake system are the improved gas mileage and upgraded look of the engine bay, with the walls separating the air filters from the engine, assuring cooler air be taken in.
Presented by Haus of Wraps, is this Pearlescent Mexico Blue F82 M4. The vinyl wrap completed on this M4 has a large amount of detail and time put in to it. One thing that we have seen previously is a paint matched stripe on the BMW Carbon Fiber Splitters and even a paint matched M Performance Front Lip that we installed for a customer on his F83 M4. Haus of Wraps did almost this except kept the color-consistent stripe around the front and side of the M Performance Lip and Side Skirts, balancing the amount of black on the car with Pearlescent Mexico Blue.
Dinan is an aftermarket performance parts manufacturer that is fairly well known with the BMW name. With a history of building race quality parts, Dinan knows how to make performance parts that are also durable and will likely outlast the life of many other components of a car. Dinan’s relationship with BMW is something special, as with most aftermarket parts there can be warranty voiding. With Dinan however, your BMWs warranty remains intact. If there are any problems however, Dinan has been known to cover the problem. The S1 Package is a common choice when picking Dinan modifications, including their Engine Software, Free Flow Exhaust, High Flow Carbon Fiber Intake, Performance Springs, Bushings, Strut Tower Braces, and Pedal Cover Set among other options (which vary depending on car).
Offered in 2011, the BMW E82 1M was offered in only 3 colors. Valencia Orange, Black Sapphire, and the classic Alpine White. Valencia Orange being the choice color, there is no doubt that the car looks stellar in Alpine White. This 1M is a more than acceptable example of one of the only 740 available units in the United States. Powered by the N54 twin-turbo 3.0 liter engine that produces 340 horsepower and 332 lb-ft of torque, the 1M was matched up against the E92 M3, returning shocking results. Being the lightest M car available, the 1M was more than capable of keeping up with the M3.
Saturday morning on November 14, 2015, European Auto Source served as host to an E9X Meet and Exhaust Shootout! M3 owners from various regions attended the event either rolling in on their own or with a caravan formed at the crack of dawn and taking a nice, low traffic, morning cruise to the event. M3s of all colors and builds were in attendance ranging from full stock to intense race or show builds. Beginning the event with the revving of an E93 with a stock system, the benchmark was set for all the exhaust systems to come. Megan Racing catback and axleback systems seemed to be a favorite but systems from a wide range of manufactures were present. These manufacturers included RPI, IPE, Megan Racing, M Performance, Akrapovic, Macht Schnell, Turner, Active, Meisterchaft, Dinan, Eisenmann, Magnaflow, Unique, ARK, TopSpeed, Challenge, Armytrix, Remus, and American Racing.
After hearing all the cars from both parked and rolling positions, it’s hard to decide just what exhaust would be the choice option. Each system is unique and delivers different performance, sound, and looks. Stay tuned for an exhaust comparison video!
Sleeper: Often referring to what appears to be an ordinary looking stock commuter car that is anything but stock under the hood. Producing around 340 hp to the wheels at stock, the E92 M3 was not a slow car off the line, and rather set the new standard for BMW’s 3-series line. Still being one of the most modified models from BMW, this Black Sapphire Metallic M3 has been equipped with a supercharger by ESS Tuning. ESS Tuning has rolled out a small handful of supercharger versions from the VT1-550 Non-intercooled system, to the VT2-595,-625, or -650 models which produce about 41%, 50%, and 56% horsepower increases respectively.
Both the M3 and M4 look absolutely stunning when coated in Yas Marina Blue. This particular F80 was fitted with Macht Schnell Spacers, Black Kidney Grilles, Painted Reflectors, and a Valentine V1 Radar Detector. Although not the largest modifications, each item plays a role in either the looks or the functionality of the car. Giving the M3 a wider stance is the Macht Schnell Spacers, which help to fill some fender and help with the aggressive body style of the car. Being a manual transmission, there is absolute control of the car, meaning some real fun can be had. That is why the owner decided to have a Valentine V1 Radar Detector installed. After all, a ticket can easily ruin a day of fun.
Generating around 300 hp and 300 lb-ft of torque, the 435i is not a slow car. Competing with other newer cars in the same horsepower range like the STi, 370z, Mustang, Genesis, etc. the six-cylinder TwinPower Turbo motor is fairly easy to make push more power to the rear wheels. With that being said, this F32 has an AFE Intake, Evolution Racewerks Catless Downpipe, and JB4 to increase its power, easily surpassing the other cars in its class. To monitor what the car is doing with these mods, an AWRON Gauge was also installed.
