  2. VMR V810s Installed on a Melbourne Red M3

    This beautiful 6MT M3 swung by our shop for a new set of wheels. Featuring lightweight flow-formed construction, wide fitments and classic styling at a low price point, you just can't go wrong with a set of VMR V810s. This E92 opted for a set in VMR's stunning Hyper Silver finish, which really pops against the Melbourne Red paint.

We really love the sporty M235i, so it was a nice treat for us to see these three beauties all lined-up. Enjoy!

  4. Springs & Spacers for a Melbourne Red M3

    Here's another example of how fixing the stance of an M3 can completely transform the car. Even with the stock 19" 220 wheels, a set of 15mm spacers in the front, 12mm spacers in the rear and a set of H&R Sport lowering springs gives this E92 a sporty and aggressive presence. Not only does this combination improve the look of the car, but the lower center of gravity and wider track will have a positive effect on the handling performance as well.

  6. 703whp ESS Supercharged M3 on our Dyno

    The last time we had this M3 on our dyno it put down an astonishing 658whp and 455wtq. While most M3 owners (or most car owners for that matter!) would be perfectly content with squeezing such high numbers our of their motor, M3Post member DLSJ5 was not. Upon his return we learned that a new, slightly smaller blower pulley had been installed to bring his ESS Supercharger System up to 13.5 PSI.

    Running such high boost paid off, with the best dyno run of the morning recording a mind-blowing 703whp and 478wtq! Fun fact: that's about twice as much as what a stock M3 does on our dyno. A supercharged M3 with 550whp already feels neck-snappingly fast; we can only imagine how hard this monster pulls with an additional 150whp. Be sure to watch the video of the dyno run to get a sense of the insane amount of power this car puts down.
