  1. Fire Orange E63 M6 Gets Benchmarked

    Here's a unique color: Fire Orange. This custom wrapped E63 M6 coupe came to us looking to add power to match its fast looks. We installed an ESS tune on it which maximizes the performance of the S85 V10 engine. Next, we strapped it to our Dynojet dyno to find out exactly how much power this car put to the ground. In combination with the RPI Scoops, RPI Full Exhaust, RD Underdrive Pulleys, and BMC Air Filter, this bright M6 churned out a respectable 472hp and 354ft-lbs tq at the wheels. We can't wait for what the owner plans next for his Fire Orange beauty. Enjoy!

  2. Gray White M6 Gran Coupe on the Dyno

    Just take one look at this M6 and you'll know it's a beast. Featuring a unique Gray White vinyl wrap, a full Vorsteiner carbon fiber aero kit, forged ADV.1 wheels and a slammed stance, this Gran Coupe hints that it has some additional horsepower under its hood. Thanks to a set of AMS catless downpipes, an ECU tune and a full Meisterschaft exhaust system, this M6 showed off by putting down 627hp and 544ft-lbs tq at the wheels on our Dynojet. Do a bit of math and you'll see that those numbers equate to roughly 750hp at the crank - in a sedan! To finish off the package, the black leather interior has been fitted with the awesome M Performance electronic steering wheel and a matching carbon fiber DCT shift knob. Enjoy!

  3. Valencia Orange E82 1M on our Dyno

    Seeing only one year of production, the smallest member of the M series is one of the rarer BMWs in recent times. Seeing this cleanly modified Valencia Orange 1M on our dyno was a treat for us. Equipped with exhaust, suspension, cosmetic parts and wheels, this E82 was ready to tie everything together with a tune. After flashing an ESS tune to the car's ECU, this 1M picked up an additional 21hp and 30tq for a total of 370hp and 413hp at the wheels. With its short wheel base, wide stance, low weight and loads of torque, this 1M can pick fights with cars twice its size.

  4. Joe's 400whp M3 sleeper has hit the streets!

    Sleeper
    sleep·er /ˈslēpər/

    Noun:
    A person or animal who is asleep.
    A person with a specified sleep pattern: "he was a light sleeper".
    A term often referring to what appears to be a ordinary looking stock vehicle that is anything but stock under the hood.

    A sleeper (US English) or Q-car (British English) is a car that has high performance and an unassuming exterior. Sleeper cars are termed such because their exterior looks little or no different from a standard or economy-class car. In some cases the car appears worse due to seeming neglect on the owner's part, typically referred to as "all go and no show". While appearing to be a standard or neglected car, internally they are modified to perform at much higher performance levels.

    We're particularly a big fan of sleepers, it seems the 400whp barrier has been broken, with a new beast is now hitting the streets.
