  1. Alpine White F87 M2 CS - BMW M Performance Suspension & Ultimate Clutch Pedal

    Alpine White F87 M2 CS - BMW M Performance Suspension & Ultimate Clutch Pedal

    The M2 Competition is a very potent machine by most people's standards. But what about for the people who desire something more powerful and sharper? That's where the M2 CS model comes in. The CS has 40 HP over the Competition (450 vs 410), features Adaptive M Suspension and a carbon fiber roof like its bigger sisters, the M3 and M4. Other differences over the Competition include a vented carbon fiber hood and lightweight seats that are found in the M3/M4 Competition. As the final hurrah for the F87 generation, the owner of this CS opted to have the best possible model. This Alpine White car was specced out to look as good as it drives. Bright gold 763M wheels house the massive gold M sports brakes.

    The owner of this CS also opted for the driving purist's choice--a 6-speed manual. To enhance the feel of the 6MT, we installed the Ultimate Clutch Pedal--which is an all-aluminum short-throw unit that completely replaces the OEM plastic pedal arm. A shorter clutch pedal stroke and a more solid construction improves driving feel and overall enjoyment of the car. The user is also able to adjust the spring pressure for a more positive return. We also installed the M Performance HAS Suspension kit, which allows for height adjustability and offers improved performance over the stock springs. A solid start to a very elegant and drive-able build.

  2. Sunset Orange Metallic F87 M2 Competition - Titan 7 T-S5

    Sunset Orange Metallic F87 M2 Competition - Titan 7 T-S5

    While we've seen more than a few M2 Comps stop by our shop, we've only seen very few of them in Sunset Orange Metallic. This vibrant hue is a nice throwback to the Valencia Orange from the M2's ancestor the 1M Coupe. This orange beast stopped by for a new set of shoes and opted for 19-inch Titan 7 T-S5s finished in Satin Titanium. Along with the Lightweight front lip, this M2 got a big upgrade in style and performance without becoming too much more flashy. It's a good thing because that Sunset Orange paint is definitely already very eye-catching, especially in the sun!

  3. 2018 Individual Avus Blue F80 M3 Competition - 3D Design Carbon Fiber Rear Diffuser

    2018 Individual Avus Blue F80 M3 Competition - 3D Design Carbon Fiber Rear Diffuser

    Avus Blue is a well-known and well-loved BMW color option. It's one of the most coveted factory color options for the classic E36 M3. The owner of this clean F80 M3 ZCP took delivery from the BMW Individual and opted to go for the classic blue. Mostly stock, with cosmetic modifications like painted front and rear reflectors, this Avus Blue M3 got some quality carbon fiber pieces from 3D Design and BMW. 3D Design supplied the quality rear diffuser which is constructed from quality dry carbon. We install many carbon fiber parts here at EAS but speaking from experience, the best fitting parts have been from the OEM and 3D Design. We hope to see this beautiful M3 stop by again! We would recommend a suspension upgrade next...

  4. Alpine White E46 M3 CSL Conversion

    Alpine White E46 M3 CSL Conversion

    Remember those amazing E46 M3 Sedan and Touring conversions we posted some time ago? Well the owner has another equally impressive build in their garage--An Alpine White E46 M3 with a 6MT that's been converted to a custom CSL build! BMW never offered the M3 CSL to the United States and never produced a CSL with a manual transmission. So once again, the owner had their dream car custom built! The owner also spared no expense in sourcing authentic CSL parts including the intake, strut brace, steering wheel and seats. This conversion even has a carbon fiber roof like the real deal! For many, this would be considered the ultimate E46 M3 and it's not surprising to see why.

  5. 2020 F87 M2 Competition - Mishimoto Performance Intercooler Power Pack

    2020 F87 M2 Competition - Mishimoto Performance Intercooler Power Pack

    The Mishimoto Performance Air-to-Water Intercooler Power Pack counters the weaknesses in the BMW S55’s design, starting with the charge pipes. Cracking under pressure or splitting at the seams are common problems with factory plastic charge pipes. These can result in less than ideal situations as you pilot your M2 Competition, M3 or M4. We created a brand-new design for the charge pipes that inspire more confidence in handling the boost pressure. Our design features a full aluminum construction with a cast midsection designed specifically to squeeze past the intake. Our charge pipe kit also includes a pair of matte black silicone couplers for a sleek and secure connection to the intercooler.

  6. F87 M2 - BimmerWorld TA5R Wheels

    F87 M2 - BimmerWorld TA5R Wheels

    BimmerWorld is extremely proud to release these fully featured flow-form wheels for street and race and everything in between. Stronger than what's currently on the market but at fighting weight to compete with the best out there. And with massive caliper clearance that doesn't need spacers.

    The TA5R uses the latest flow-form manufacturing process to produce a light weight, strong, BMW track wheel with huge caliper clearance for street, track, autocross, and racing use. The TA5R borrows many design elements from our forged TA16 wheel but in a more economical price range. Compared to other flow-formed wheels on the market the BimmerWorld TA5R is a similar weight but stronger, with better caliper clearance, and at a similar price point.

  7. 2010 Space Grey E90 M3 - Ohlins DFV Coilovers & Titan7 TS-7s

    2010 Space Grey E90 M3 - Ohlins DFV Coilovers & Titan7 TS-7s

    The BMW M3 is well-known to be a do-it-all sort of vehicle, particularly the sedan variants. Whether it be by choice, economical or logistical reasons, some drivers choose to have only 1 car. The sport sedan fills in that niche well as it can be just as good on the road as it is on the track. The E90 M3 with its more-than-adequate S65 V8 is a German muscle car with four doors. When it's not being used as a grocery getter or family vehicle, one can easily remove the child seats and take it to a high performance driving event. That's exactly the kind of purpose the owner of this Space Grey car had in mind.

  9. 2001 Alpine White E36/7 Z3 M Roadster

    2001 Alpine White E36/7 Z3 M Roadster

    Sometimes the more special and rarer stuff makes their way into our shop. This ultra-clean 2001 Z3 M Roadster is definitely special as it's equipped with the same S54 engine out of the E46 M3. Only about 1,500 S54 M Roadsters reached North America, making it a unicorn. This particular example only has a little over 29,000 miles on the odometer, making it a museum-quality time capsule. A tell-tale trait of an S54 equipped Z3 M without looking under the hood is a gauge cluster with a light gray background.

    This little white roadster was also treated to the full Dinan Stage 3 treatment, which included exhaust, intake and tune. It is also rolling on 17'' Dinan wheels made by Fiske. Just at a glance, one could tell that this M Roadster is its owner's pride and joy. If this classic ever gets sold, the next owner can definitely buy with confidence!
