  1. 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.

    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.

    2018 Black Sapphire Metallic F80 M3 ZCP - Macht Schnell Competition Spacers and Springs

    Many of those 2018 cars are also looking to get their first modifications. Those first mods are very commonly lowering springs and wheel spacers. They both allow enthusiasts to transform their ride's look for relatively little investment (relative to a new set of coilovers and wheels!). This Black Sapphire Competition Package came by our shop for those exact mods. For Competition/ZCP cars on a moderate drop (as you would get with lowering springs), we reccomend a 12mm/10mm front/rear setup which was exactly what this car rolled with.

    2018 Mineral Gray F87 M2 - Eibach Pro-Kit Springs & Macht Schnell Spacers

    Lowering springs and wheel spacers are very popular first mods for many of our customers. They are modifications often performed when the driver prefers to not deviate too far from the stock setup. This brand-new 2018 M2 stopped by today for its first set of mods. Its driver opted for Eibach's Pro-Kit springs are among the most widely used and have many applications. While lowering springs reduce wheel gap and improve aesthetics, handling and feel are also improved due to the car's center of gravity being lowered. Like other quality brands, Eibach springs will also keep the ride quality relatively comfortable. Once the springs were installed, we also installed 10mm Macht Schnell spacers all around. The driver requested a more conservative yet still flush-fitting wheel fitment so 10mm all around did the trick.

    Silver Gray E46 M3 - Recaro Profi SPG

    Fixed shell bucket seats can completely transform the way a car looks and feels to drive. With rigid bolstering and the ability to sit in the seat, as opposed to on top of it, the driver will stay put under cornering. When the driver isn't sliding around in their seat, they'll be able to enter corners with more confidence, potentially improving their lap times. Recaro's legendary line of fixed shell racing seats are a staple in the tuning world so it's no surprise that the owner of this E46 M3 track build decided to go with them.
