  1. Akrapovic Exhaust Installed on Alpine White M6

    As BMW's flagship model, the M6 deserves the world's flagship exhaust. Recognizing this, the owner of this Alpine White F13 had us install the Akrapovic Evolution exhaust system. Weighing in at just under 57lbs (which is a whole 27lbs lighter than stock), this full titanium exhaust system is built to the absolute highest quality on the market. The sound it creates is fantastic; exotic, not too loud and drone free. It also picks up about 10hp and 12.5lb-ft torque too, so this exhaust offers true high performance in every aspect. To go along with the new carbon fiber exhaust tips, this M6 also received BMW's carbon fiber mirror caps and a carbon fiber DCT shift knob. Enjoy.

  2. Mineral Gray M4

    Recently we've been busy modfying a bunch of Orange County's newest M3s and M4s. This Mineral Gray F82 came to our facility for a full iND painted cosmetic package, which consisted of gloss black kidney grilles, gloss black side markers, a gloss black trunk badge and color-matched reflectors. Even though each one of these items may seem small, when installed together they gave this M4 the sleek and sporty look that the owner was after.

  3. Lowered M4 on 359 GTS Wheels

    This customer wasted no time in modifying their new Alpine White F82 M4. Right off the bat, the 437 M wheels were replaced with the E9X M3's 359 GTS wheels, along with a set of 10mm Macht Schnell spacers in the front. Behind the matte black wheels, the factory's blue brake calipers were swapped out for identical red ones. H&R Sport lowering springs got rid of the unsightly wheel gap and stiffened up the car's handling performance. Under the hood we removed the stock paper air filters and installed a pair of BMC high performance air filters, which are good for a bit of extra horsepower. Inside, the high-tech Awron DGA gauge displays several pages of real time data while seamlessly blending with the OEM interior. And, as is the case with pretty much every other F8X we've seen so far, this M4's exterior has been streamlined with iND's kidney grille surrounds, side markers and front reflectors. Enjoy.

  4. Sakhir Orange F80 M3

    This brand new Sakhir Orange M3 drove straight from the dealership to our facility for a few quick cosmetic upgrades. Wanting to get rid of the chrome trim, we installed iND's gloss black painted kidney grille surrounds in front along with gloss black painted side markers. We then swapped out both the front and rear sets of OEM reflectors for Sakhir Orange painted ones, giving the body a sleeker look. Lastly, we installed a Sakhir Orange painted license plate frame to add the finishing touches to this F80's stunning exterior. Enjoy!

  5. Alpine White M4 Lowered on H&R Sport Springs

    We were able to secure some of the first sets of M3/M4 H&R springs in the country a bit early, so we wasted no time getting a set installed. This customer from Arizona drove 379 miles one way to get these new springs put in, making it a good opportunity to rack up some break-in miles on their new M4. Before we put this F82 on our lift, we made sure to take some "before" photos so that you could see the results of the new springs. With the H&R sport springs installed, the car was dropped by a full inch in both the front and rear, giving the car the sporty stance it should have had from the factory. Enjoy!

  6. Awron Gauge Installed in M4

    We've installed many of these Awron gauges in supercharged E9X M3s before, but this was the very first that we have installed in the new M4. Like all the other Awron gauges, this model, which fits the F30 3-Series, F32/F33 4-Series, F80 M3, and the F82/F83 M4, is expertly pre-assembled into an OEM BMW vent. The sharp, full color OLED display presents a wide array of real time data, which is controlled using the steering wheel buttons for quick, on the fly commands. We really like how this gauge flows with BMW's new interior - it really looks like a factory option! Check out the photos below and click on the product link to see all the cool features of this awesome little gauge.

  7. Yas Marina Blue M3 on Burning Red Volk TE37RT Wheels

    The Yas Marina Blue F80 M3 is back! This time it was fitted with a set of Burning Red 18" TE37RT wheels, which were taken off the owner's previous E92 M3. He's still not sure on whether or not he likes the color combo, so we'll probably be seeing a new set of wheels on this car very soon. This F80 was also equipped with the new H&R sport lowering spring kit, which in combination with the new wheels, gave it the perfect stance. on While it was at our facility, we ran it on the dyno, installed a 75mm Macht Schnell stud conversion kit, and tidied up the exterior with some iND painted goodies. Take a quick look at this clean, yet one-of-a-kind M3.

  8. Niche Targa Wheels Installed on Porsche Cayman S

    We recently had the opportunity to install a fresh set of wheels and tires on this black Cayman S. Wanting something both sporty and dark, this Porsche owner opted for the Niche Targa Sport Series wheels. Finished in matte black with machined aluminum spokes, these aggressively styled cast wheels not only look fantastic, but they're also very affordable. Take a look at how they instantly transformed this Cayman S into a sleek and stealthy sports car.

    This white Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG sedan was in need of some fresh wheels. These 19" matte black Vorsteiner V-FF 101 flow-formed wheels, with their aggressive styling and affordable price point,  were the the perfect choice for this car. Just check out these sweet photos that Vorsteiener shared with us to see for yourself.

  10. The Works for a Frozen White M3 Sedan

    Most of our customers modify their cars in multiple stages, having us install one or two parts during each visit. Others, like the owner of this Frozen White wrapped E90 M3, want everything done in one fell swoop. So many components of this 2008 M3 have been replaced or upgraded that it's essentially a brand new car. It really did get the works.
