Every year we participate in the European Car Magazine Tuner GP with one of our project BMWs. Having previously competed with a supercharged E92 M3 and a supercharged E86 Z4M, this was the first year we showed up with a turbo car. With our M4 putting down 559hp and 605ft-lbs tq at the wheels, we made some changes prior to the event to help this beast handle the race track.
While lowering springs are perfect for the street, the track demands a bit more. We opted for a set of KW Clubsport 2-way adjustable coilovers, which enabled us to dial-in the optimal settings for the highly technical Streets of Willow Raceway. We then installed a front/rear Brembo GT big brake kit for better stopping power and fade-free performance. Like many of our track-going customers, we installed a set of strong and lightweight 18" Apex EC-7 wheels wrapped in the event required Continental Extreme Contact DW tires.
Just like every other year we've competed, we drove our M4 to and from the event to prove that it's a double duty street/track weapon. Our driver, Jordan Yost of Yost Autosport, piloted the F82 and put down some awesome lap times. To get all the details you'll have to wait for the European Car Tuner GP issue to hit newsstands sometime early next year, but for now you can check out these exclusive photos and video from the event. Enjoy!

Make sure to grab the latest issue (April 2014) of European Car Magazine to check out our 5-page article! Featuring our supercharged Z4M and supercharged E92 M3, the article gives an inside look of what we do here. We were given the opportunity to take the photos ourselves, so we took the cars out to El Mirage Dry Lake Bed and got lucky with the most beautiful sunset anyone could ask for. For your enjoyment we've posted some of the photos, but be sure to grab a hard copy of the magazine too!
The European Car Tuner GP magazine is out on newstands now! Back in Septemper, we competed in the annual event with our ESS supercharged Z4M driven by Jordan Yost. The competition was tough, but we were able to snag 1st place in both the RWD track and dragstrip events. We've posted the complete article below so you can get every last detail. For even more information and photos of our Z4M during this competition, head over to European Car's website for short spotlight article. Enjoy!
We recently had the opportunity to build this 2003 Silver Gray E46 M3 for a feature in the July 2013 issue of European Car Magazine. We threw all the goodies into this car including an ESS supercharger, Borla exhaust, KW coilovers, Volk TE37 wheels, Performance Friction brakes, Recaro seats and more. Grab a copy of the magazine to get all the details of this M3 build, but for now take a look at these behind the scenes photos.
