  1. A Clean Alpine White E46 M3

    This super clean 2003 E46 M3 came to us all the way from Las Vegas for some modifications and service. The most obvious modification to the car was a set of silver, wide fitment VMR VB3 wheels and Macht Schnell 10mm rear spacers. To compliment the new wheels, Bilstein PSS10 coilovers were installed to complete the aggressive stance and drastically improve handling. Further improving the handling characteristics of the car were new bushings, new shock mounts and an alignment service to dial-in the new set-up. Subtle exterior modifications complete the clean, OEM-like exterior of this M3. Enjoy.

  3. Jet Black E92 M3 gets an Akrapovic Evolution & APEX EC-7s

    Wanting to prepare his M3 for an upcoming track day, this mostly stock E92 came to us for a few upgrades. First on this list was the Akrapovic Slip-On Titanium Exhaust System, which saves 31lbs over the stock exhaust system and gives the S65 V8 an aggressive tone. Lightweight 18" APEX EC-7 wheels wrapped in super sticky Hankook RS-3s would help give this M3 the necessary grip in the high speed corners it was sure to encounter. Finally, Vorshlag camber plates were installed on the stock front suspension to add the ability to dial in the settings for maximum handling performance.

  4. Spacers Installed on Laguna Seca Blue BMW Performance M3

    This brand new Laguna Seca Blue E92 M3 came to our shop already equipped with a long list of BMW Performance additions. Featuring the carbon fiber front splitters, carbon fiber rear spoiler, carbon fiber mirrors, Inconel exhaust and matte black GTS wheels, this car is the epitome of an OEM+ modified M3. There was one aftermarket modification, however, that was still needed to complete this E92: Macht Schnell spacers. Opting for the popular 15/12mm combo, this LSB coupe was instantly given its properly aggressive stance. Enjoy.

  5. Space Gray E90 M3 with Red TE37s and Akrapovic Exhaust

    Space Gray looks good with pretty much any wheel finish, but apparently it looks especially nice with red TE37s. This M3 sedan combines the aggressive 18" Volks with B&G sport springs, which lower the car by 1.2" in the front and 1.0" in the rear to give the car a sporty stance. We then installed an Akrapovic exhaust featuring carbon fiber tips and Macht Schnell track pipes. These two exhaust modifications increase power, decrease weight and give the S65 V8 a deep, muscular tone. Enjoy.

  6. Recaro Profi XL Seats Installed in E92 M3

    After attending multiple track sessions in his E92 M3, this customer decided it was time to do some weight reduction and install some supportive racing seats. After sitting in our project E92 M3, he deiced that the Recaro Pole Position Seats were to small and he needed something a bit larger. The perfect choice was a set of Recaro Profi XL Seats. Combined with AE Performance bolt-in roll cage, 6-point harnesses and a rear seat delete, this M3 was instantly transformed from a daily driver to a dedicated track car. Enjoy!

  9. Alpine White M3 Convertible with a Racing Stripe

    As far as any of us can remember, this was the first M3 we've seen at our shop that featured a racing stripe. The matte white double stripe creates just enough contrast against the Alpine White paint to be noticed while remaining as subtle as a racing stripe can be. Further accentuating this E93's exterior are the BMW Performance front splitters, DPE Wheels, matte black accents and a Vorsteiner exhaust.

    This Silver Gray M3 is a great example of a clean and classic E46. Featuring the complete line of Vorsteiner V-CSL exterior components, this M3 perfectly mimics the elusive and highly coveted M3 CSL. A complete exhaust system combined with the Dinan engine package gives this car it's speed. An aggressive drop tucks the classic BBS LM wheels into the fender flares for a flush, sporty look. Red Brembo brakes in the front and rear complete the aesthetic. Keep a eye out for this M3 when it hits the local race tracks. Enjoy.
