  3. Space Grey E92 M3 - The Weekend Racer

    When tracking a car there are many components that can determine your lap time. Maximizing speeds in the corners, having the power to get up to speed on a straight, and most importantly, braking for corners, other drivers, or in emergency situations are some of the biggest factors. Since the owner of this M3 loves to take it out on the track, a brake upgrade was necessary. Equipped with an AP Racing brake system, this M3 doesn’t have to worry about brake fade or not being able to stop. Size matters when on the track because of the heat that is disbursed throughout the rotors when applying the brakes. Comparing the AP Racing BBK (Big Brake Kit) to the OEM equipment, the AP Racing BBK front calipers contain 6 pistons and slotted rotors versus the single piston and solid rotor from the factory.

    To lose some weight and also increase grip the owner decided on Apex ARC 8 Wheels and Nitto NT01 Tires 275/35/ZR18 Front and Rear. Increasing performance slightly with its AFE Carbon Intake and Vorsteiner Type 1 Exhaust, this M3 for sure gives a good yet responsive exhaust note. Entering the car, the driver is immediately reminded that they are in an M Performance vehicle because of the M Performance Steering Wheel and stitching on the handbrake.

  4. Gruppe M Carbon Fiber Intake Installed on a 1M

    This Alpine White 1M is certainly no stranger to our shop. Over the last year and a half, we've seen this E82 start from scratch and end up as the highly modified car you see today. In its most recent visit, we had the opportunity to install the beautiful Gruppe M ram air intake system. Manufactured in Japan using 100% 1x1 weave carbon fiber, the Gruppe M intake is designed to capture the maximum amount of air while keeping temperatures down. The new airbox houses a large high-flow K&N air filter that further increase flow efficiency and captures contaminants. The whole intake system also looks stunning once installed, giving the finishing touch (for now) to this great example of a 1M. Enjoy!

  5. Gruppe M Intake Installed on Singapore Gray M5

    For it's first visit to our shop, this Singapore Gray M5 got the popular combo of F10 modifications installed: Akrapovic exhaust, H&R lowering springs and Macht Schnell wheel spacers. We saw this car again when it came back for the ultra high quality, made in Japan Gruppe M ram air intake system. Featuring two K&N cone filters, carbon fiber intake scoops, carbon fiber heat shields and carbon fiber duct work, the Gruppe M not only improves the efficiency of the M5's intake system, but also decorates the engine bay with a touch of motorsport inspired flair.

  6. Frozen White M5 Gets Vorsteiner Wheels and Gruppe M Intake

    We first saw this Frozen White M5 at our shop when we installed a full exhaust, spacers and springs (see the blog post here). This time around we had the opportunity of installing a set of 21" Vorsteiner VS-310 wheels wrapped in Michelin Pilot Supersports. Featuring the Brushed Dark Shadow finish these forged 3-piece wheels show off their aircraft-grade brushed aluminum and sharp beveled edges. With the larger diameter wheels filling the fender wells, this F10 looks even more commanding than before.

    The second order of business was installing the Gruppe M intake. Providing increased airflow and quicker turbo spooling, this Japanese made intake also dresses the engine bay in glossy 1x1 carbon fiber. This intake also sounds great; the twin turbos are noticeable even when driving in a parking lot. With its individual paint job, top-of-the-line modifications and aggressive stance, this M5 will attract attention wherever it goes.

  7. Gruppe M Intake Installed on IND's F10 M5

    Gruppe M produces high-quality, hand-made carbon fiber intake systems, which not only boost a BMW's performance, but also add some carbon fiber flair under the hood. The factory ductwork and airboxes are replaced with heat-shielding carbon fiber with enhanced inlets to capture the maximum amount of air. Lower intake air temperatures carry higher concentrations of oxygen, allowing for more energetic explosions and producing more horsepower and torque. Of course, reliability is never sacrificed -- high-efficiency, high-flow K&N air filter materials prevent contaminants from interfering with proper engine function.This high performance ram air intake was the perfect choice for IND's F10 M5.
