  1. 2004 Silver Grey E46 M3 - Recaro Sportster CS & Stoptech Big Brake Kit

    2004 Silver Grey E46 M3 - Recaro Sportster CS & Stoptech Big Brake Kit

    Sometimes, when you've had a car for a few years, it's good to change things up. This 2004 M3 had been owned by its driver for a long while and has remained mostly stock for their ownership. Being a long-time EAS customer with multiple BMWs, this M3's owner decided that this classic beauty was in need of some upgrades. The factory seats at this point were looking tired and had worn-out bolsters. So in went a pair of Recaro Sportster CS Reclining Seats, breathing new life into the 15-year old interior. Despite being a more modern seat design, the Sportster CS didn't look out of place at all in the E46's cockpit.

  2. Long Beach Blue F87 M2 - Akrapvoic, Titan7 & Vorsteiner

    Long Beach Blue F87 M2 - Akrapvoic, Titan7 & Vorsteiner

    Titan7 wheels are becoming a popular wheel choice among our customers, especially those who track their cars. These wheels feature a durable, forged construction at a reasonable price tag. Perfect for the budget-minded track enthusiast who needs a durable wheel that can withstand racetrack curbs. This stunning Long Beach Blue M2 is showing off a 18'' set of T-S5s finished in Machine Black, giving the car great color coordination with the blacked-out and carbon trim.

    Along with the Akrapovic Evolution Titanium Exhaust System, and carbon-fiber Akrapovic and Vorsteiner Aero parts, this M2 looks and sounds mean. It would look just as good slicing through the corners as it does parked at a weekend show. We would suggest a good set of brakes and/or coilovers next for this blue beast...

    2019 Hockenheim Silver Metallic F87 M2 Competition - IND, AutoTecknic

    The first things many of our customers to do their car are subtle and tasteful modifications. A simple kidney grille or reflector swap is more often than not the first things that a BMW enthusiast does to their car. This beautiful Hockenheim Silver M2C rolled into our shop soon after it drove off the dealer lot. Color-matched front reflectors and sportier rear reflector replacments were the first mods for the exterior. On the inside, Autotecknic extended shifter paddles went on the steering wheel.

    2011 Frozen Red E92 M3 - Recaro Profi XL SPG

    This supercharged Frozen Red beast stopped by for a seat upgrade. It's owner is not one to cheap out on parts as he already had us install an ESS supercharger and a set of Volk Racing TE37 Ultras.

  5. 2019 Long Beach Blue F87 M2 Competition - Dyno

    2019 Long Beach Blue F87 M2 Competition - Dyno

    The standard M2 is already a great performance car. But when one throws in the S55 from the F8x M3/M4, the result is the fire-breathing M2 Competition. After putting one on our dyno, we found out that the M2C is about ~20whp shy of M3/M4 numbers, likely through factory de-tuning. We'll see what numbers we can reach once tuned as well as compare other M2Cs as they come through the doors. This particular M2C also received an alcantara-wrapped BMW M Performance Steering Wheel.

  6. 2018 Alpine White F80 M3 ZCP - Moton Suspension & Titan7 Wheels

    2018 Alpine White F80 M3 ZCP - Moton Suspension & Titan7 Wheels

    The M3 has always been a do-it-all car. M3 drivers utilize their car in a variety of ways--As a daily driver, weekend car, track car, and sometimes even as a rally car. In stock form, the F80 M3 excels at all 3 of those roles but with a couple of key upgrades, it can play those roles even better. This F80 M3 received 19'' Titan7 T-S5s, a very strong, forged and lightweight option. Along with the shiny new T-S5s, we also installed a set of Moton 2-Way Coilovers.

  7. VTT "Spline Lock" CrankHub Solution & Crank Bolt Capture For BMW N54/N55/S55

    VTT "Spline Lock" CrankHub Solution & Crank Bolt Capture For BMW N54/N55/S55

    We are happy to announce that VTT is offering the only complete S55 crank hub solution that does NOT require the crank to be drilled for pins. VTT's uses their proprietary "SplineLock" technology that uses high tolerance machined splines which press into the crank, and positively lock the hub to the crank to prevent slippage. The splines are machined in such a way that rotational forces drive the hub, and splines deeper into the crank meaning when the hub encounters a situation that would normally slip a stock hub the splined hub is driven into the crank to keep it in place (much like a splined extractor). VTT has spent many months testing, and retesting this design, utilizing well over 10 different samples to come to their final production version.

  8. 2017 Austin Yellow F80 M3 - 100% E85 Bootmod3 Tune + Pure Turbos Stage 2 Upgrade

    2017 Austin Yellow F80 M3 - 100% E85 Bootmod3 Tune + Pure Turbos Stage 2 Upgrade

    The F80 M3 is a fast car out of the box. But for some, the stock power output simply isn't enough. It's not uncommon for someone to throw power mods at their car and nothing else. The owner of this F80 M3 however was more thoughtful about choices in mods. The owner desired 700+ at the wheels and did so by way of a 100% E85 Tune and a turbo upgrade. To help tame that power, a set of bigger brakes also came into play.

  9. 2005 Carbon Black E46 M3 - KW V3 & Sparco SPX

    2005 Carbon Black E46 M3 - KW V3 & Sparco SPX

    Upgrading your car's seats and suspension system are some of the most worthwhile modifications you can make. While a upgrade such as coilovers can dramatically change the way the car handles and feels on the road, in many ways, swapping out the seat is an even bigger change. Along with the steering wheel, pedals, and shift knob, the seat is a major touch point; one of the main ways (if not the main way) the driver interacts with a car. Most factory seats are a one-size-fits-all sort of deal and do not do the best job in keeping the driver in place during sportier driving. A good aftermarket seat with more aggressive bolstering would do better in keeping the driver in place under high performance driving, comfortably. The Sparco SPX is a good example of said type of seat.

    2018 Marina Bay Blue F90 M5 - BMW M Performance

    The F90 M5 is an big bruiser with understated styling that's inviting towards aftermarket parts. Even with the eye-catching Marina Bay Blue, this M5's owner decided it needed some tasteful cosmetic touches. It's a good thing there's a variety of options available from BMW themselves, IND and Autotecknic!
