While we've seen more than a few M2 Comps stop by our shop, we've only seen very few of them in Sunset Orange Metallic. This vibrant hue is a nice throwback to the Valencia Orange from the M2's ancestor the 1M Coupe. This orange beast stopped by for a new set of shoes and opted for 19-inch Titan 7 T-S5s finished in Satin Titanium. Along with the Lightweight front lip, this M2 got a big upgrade in style and performance without becoming too much more flashy. It's a good thing because that Sunset Orange paint is definitely already very eye-catching, especially in the sun!
Avus Blue is a well-known and well-loved BMW color option. It's one of the most coveted factory color options for the classic E36 M3. The owner of this clean F80 M3 ZCP took delivery from the BMW Individual and opted to go for the classic blue. Mostly stock, with cosmetic modifications like painted front and rear reflectors, this Avus Blue M3 got some quality carbon fiber pieces from 3D Design and BMW. 3D Design supplied the quality rear diffuser which is constructed from quality dry carbon. We install many carbon fiber parts here at EAS but speaking from experience, the best fitting parts have been from the OEM and 3D Design. We hope to see this beautiful M3 stop by again! We would recommend a suspension upgrade next...

The Mishimoto Performance Air-to-Water Intercooler Power Pack counters the weaknesses in the BMW S55’s design, starting with the charge pipes. Cracking under pressure or splitting at the seams are common problems with factory plastic charge pipes. These can result in less than ideal situations as you pilot your M2 Competition, M3 or M4. We created a brand-new design for the charge pipes that inspire more confidence in handling the boost pressure. Our design features a full aluminum construction with a cast midsection designed specifically to squeeze past the intake. Our charge pipe kit also includes a pair of matte black silicone couplers for a sleek and secure connection to the intercooler.
BimmerWorld is extremely proud to release these fully featured flow-form wheels for street and race and everything in between. Stronger than what's currently on the market but at fighting weight to compete with the best out there. And with massive caliper clearance that doesn't need spacers.
The TA5R uses the latest flow-form manufacturing process to produce a light weight, strong, BMW track wheel with huge caliper clearance for street, track, autocross, and racing use. The TA5R borrows many design elements from our forged TA16 wheel but in a more economical price range. Compared to other flow-formed wheels on the market the BimmerWorld TA5R is a similar weight but stronger, with better caliper clearance, and at a similar price point.
The BMW M3 is well-known to be a do-it-all sort of vehicle, particularly the sedan variants. Whether it be by choice, economical or logistical reasons, some drivers choose to have only 1 car. The sport sedan fills in that niche well as it can be just as good on the road as it is on the track. The E90 M3 with its more-than-adequate S65 V8 is a German muscle car with four doors. When it's not being used as a grocery getter or family vehicle, one can easily remove the child seats and take it to a high performance driving event. That's exactly the kind of purpose the owner of this Space Grey car had in mind.
Another tastefully done black= M3 graces the eas blog! This time, it's a Black Sapphire F80 M3 rolling on a quality set of Volk Racing TE37 Ultras. These TE37 Ultras are specifically the M-Spec version finished in Diamond Dark Gunmetal. It's really tough to go wrong with TE37s as these proven wheels look good on almost everything. The perfectly-dialed in ride height was provided by KW Variant 3 (V3) Coilovers. To complete the look of the car, a BMW M Performance Carbon Fiber Front Lip Spoiler is up front and a 3D Design Carbon Fiber Type 2 Rear Diffuser is on the rear. Overall, a very tastefully done build with top-quality parts!
A black car on black wheels is a staple in the enthusiast world. A black-on-black build shows nearly as much aggression as it does restraint. That's the feeling we got from this clean Individual Frozen Black F80 M3. The owner of this mean black bruiser opted to get a high quality forged wheel and ultimately chose the BBS FI-R finished in Satin Black, perfectly complementing the Frozen Black body finish. The skeletonized spoke design not only looks cool but also keep these forged wheels even lighter. This car already had carbon fiber front splitters, sideskirts, rear diffuser and trunk spoiler. The addition of the FI-Rs truly complete this car.

Our E92 M3 project is now a host to the new ESS Tuning G1 Intercooled Supercharger System! Prior the the install of the supercharger, the only mechanical modification done to the S65 of our M3 were Macht Schnell Bypass Track Pipes and a Macht Schnell Stage 2 Intake Charge Kit. Bolting on the G1 supercharger with the 96.5mm pulley had our M3 go from 377 WHP/279 WTQ to a whopping 548 WHP/366 WTQ! Dyno sheets are near the bottom of the of this post.
KW Coilovers are the go-to suspension upgrade for many of our customers who are upgrading either from stock or basic lowering springs. With proven motorsport pedigree, it's hard to go wrong with nay of KW's quality offerings. Their Version 3 (V3) Coilovers are an especilaly popular option due to features such as independently adjustable damping technology - rebound and compression damping.
The separate and independently adjustable rebound- and compression damping allows for an individual suspension setup for different uses and preferences. The unique patented system with its two-stage valves allows a rebound damping adjustment (comfort) and a compression adjustment (driving dynamics) in the low-speed range while the high-speed range which controls the driving safety, is fixed.
As far it is vehicle-specifically possible, the rebound damping is adjusted by a spindle at the end of the piston rod. Mainly, the traction phase (rebound) controls car body vibrations and also influences handling and comfort in the low-speed damping range. By using the traction phase adjustment, the vehicle can be adapted to the requirements of the driver. Moreover the driving behavior can be regulated from comfortably rolling to sporty and tense with improved road holding characteristics.
The compression phase adjustment is carried out at the lower end of the shock absorber via our patented multi-purpose valve. The large number of pre-set parameters of this valve allows for a wide range of adjustment for individual use. The unique low-speed compression adjustment significantly distinguishes this technology from any other. In this compression range, the driving behavior of the vehicle is drastically influenced. An increase of the damping power supports the vehicle already during compression and therefore avoids rolling and pitching. The directional stability is significantly improved.
Other features include:
- "inox-line" stainless steel technology
- Individual height adjustment
- German TUV-tested adjustment parameters
- High-quality components for long life
- Comprehensive documentation for ease of use
- Infinitely adjustable rebound damping
- 14- level adjustable compression damping
- Unique, independently functioning damping power adjustment
