  1. 2018 Fire Orange F80 M3 ZCP, Part 1 - Macht Schnell Spacers

    2018 Fire Orange F80 M3 ZCP, Part 1 - Macht Schnell Spacers

    It's always a treat to receive a customer with an Individual car. More often than not, the Individual car is in a hue we seldom see. The F80 M3 can be a relatively unassuming car when finished in a white, black or gray but when its finished in Fire Orange, it's anything but! This Fire Orange II F80 M3 ZCP is fresh off the showroom floor and was in need of some personalization. The owner decided to draw first blood with Macht Schnell Competition Spacers, with 15mm spacers up front and 12mm in the rear. Combined with the stock ZCP suspension, the spacers did quite a bit to upgrade this M3's aesthetics!

  2. 2018 Black Sapphire Metallic F90 M5

    2018 Black Sapphire Metallic F90 M5

    The F90 generation of the M5 brings many changes to the legendary model. This is the first M car (besides the X5/X6 Ms) to use all-wheel drive. The F90 is also the first M5 to not be available with a manual transmission. The staunchest BMW M purists may decry those changes, but going by published reviews and tests, the M5 is faster than ever and can still dance around corners with finesse. With 600 HP and 553 torques, it might not seem too much faster than the previous model or the competition. But thanks to AWD, it can accelerate from a stop with brutal authority--Car & Driver managed to get from 0-60 in 2.8 seconds! A 2.8 second 0-60 time makes this family sedan from hell even faster than a Audi R8 V10 Plus or Nissan GT-R!

  3. 2017 Long Beach Blue F87 M2 - RKP Carbon Fiber Roof

    2017 Long Beach Blue F87 M2 - RKP Carbon Fiber Roof

    Ever since the E46 M3 CSL, carbon fiber roof panels have been available on the M3 and ultimately have helped defined the M3 and M4. Carbon fiber roofs help keep the center of gravity lower, improving handling, all while making cars look plain cooler. For M2 drivers who desire an off-the-shelf option, RKP Composites offers a high quality option. This M2 was our latest customer to purchase RKP's Carbon Fiber Roof Panel. The carbon roof really tied up this build as it already had Brembo GT Brakes and BBS FI-Rs installed. This Long Beach Blue beast is sure to inspire other M2 owners while parked at a weekend show or while hot-lapping around Buttonwillow.

  4. 2017 Mineral White F80 M3 ZCP - Custom E85 Tune (722 whp!)

    2017 Mineral White F80 M3 ZCP - Custom E85 Tune (722 whp!)

    Another Bootmod3 OBD2-flashed car is in the 700 Horsepower Club! This M3 was custom-tuned on our in-house Dynojet with Cary Jordan's E85 Bootmod3 flash tune. The Pure Stage 2 turbos really flexed their muscles while laying down fantastic numbers. The drastic gains with E85 make stock runs are barely visible on the chart. Peak power was 722 whp @ 675 wtq, showing a whopping 283 whp gain over stock! Torque was dialed back slightly as clutch slippage was present at wide-open throttle. This is one M3 that is very civil for a night out on the town with all hell breaking loose when the pedal is mashed to the floor.
