  1. 2020 F87 M2 Competition - Mishimoto Performance Intercooler Power Pack

    2020 F87 M2 Competition - Mishimoto Performance Intercooler Power Pack

    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.

  3. 2017 Frozen Black F80 M3 - BBS FI-R

    2017 Frozen Black F80 M3 - BBS FI-R

    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.

    Lime Rock Grey vs Nardo Grey

    Here's a side-by-side comparison between two different but easily confused paint options: Lime Rock Grey (on the F80 M3 CS) and Nardo Grey (on the F82 M4). Lime Rock is a touch darker. Lime Rock Grey was one of the factory color options on the M3 CS while it was in production. Nardo Grey is purely an Indvidual option. Which would you prefer to have on your F8X?

  6. 2018 San Marino Blue F80 M3 CS - HRE R101 (Stone Finish)

    2018 San Marino Blue F80 M3 CS - HRE R101 (Stone Finish)

    Some car/wheel combos look just right. HRE R101s and the San Marino Blue M3 CS is definitely one of those combos!

    Starting at a mere 16lbs, HRE’s R101 Lightweight takes the R101 style to the next level. The R101 LW is specifically designed for individual vehicle models creating the ultimate in lightweight optimization for street and track use. Every vehicle model has a different load rating and power output, so HRE utilized this data to redesign the R101 for each model application fine-tuning each detail of the wheel to remove weight and add stiffness where possible. The aesthetics and performance of these lightweight wheels are taken even further with the KW Dynamic Dampening Control Coilover System . Carbon fiber bits from AutoTecknic and RKP complement the San Marino Blue body color rather nicely as well!

    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.

  8. 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.

    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.

  10. 2018 Fire Orange F80 M3 ZCP, Part 2 - BMW M Performance Carbon Fiber Splitters

    2018 Fire Orange F80 M3 ZCP, Part 2 - BMW M Performance Carbon Fiber Splitters

    The last time this Fire Orange car was here it received a set of Macht Schnell Wheel Spacers. It has gone through a few more changes since then, chiefly carbon fiber aero trim from BMW M Performance. OEM always tends to fit these cars the best so we couldn't fault the owner for being a bit of a purist! M Performance's carbon fiber trunk spoiler, mirror caps and rear diffuser added some aggressive accents to this fiery sedan. But besides the blacked out kidney grilles, the front end was still looking tame compared to the considerably more aggressive rear. That's where we came in by installing carbon fiber upper and lower splitters, also from M Performance. These splitters look so right and are so popular with our customers that it's becoming very rare to NOT see them on an F8x car! With the exterior now very much on point, the owner expressed some interest in getting a louder exhaust which definitely sets the stage for this Fire Orange beast's next eas visit...
