Racing is a luxury that many BMW enthusiasts enjoy. The E92 M3 is no doubt a capable track car in its stock form, however the owner of this one wanted to be able to push his car even more. Equipped with an ESS Supercharger, this M3 can power out of any corner. To further decrease lap times, this M3 needed to get some more grip. TE37 wheels wrapped in Yokohama Advan Neova AD08 R tires, Takata Racing Seats and Harnesses, and Pedal Haus Aluminum Pedals were the go to options for shedding some weight, increasing grip and safety, as well as adding to the black on orange color scheme. Immediately noticeable, the aerodynamic package by CRZY Engineering and APR Performance adds both function and aggressive styling to this M3. For increased safety, this M3 has also been equipped with roll cage.
For the owner, not being able to race 24/7 is a slight disappointment however, still being a street legal car, street driveability was crucial. The M Performance Steering Wheel wrapped in alcantara once again aides in increased hand grip and control on the track, but also provides the driver with the comfort and control of any other BMW steering wheel.
As evidenced by this blog we're used to working on the latest high performance BMWs, so it's definitely a change of pace when we get our hands on something like this. Weighing in at just over 2200lbs, this Inca Orange 1973 2002Tii hails from a time when cars were much smaller and simpler than they are today. Featuring a 2.0L fuel injected 4-cylinder engine mated with a 4-speed manual transmission, this car's 0-60 time of nearly 10 seconds is pretty embarrassing even when compared to a modern base 320i. However anyone who admires these cars knows it's not about the performance, it's about driving and enjoying a preserved part of BMW's history. Take a moment to admire this beautiful example of what a BMW looked like just over 40 years ago.
While it's obvious that we primarily perform work on BMWs, we do occasionally get the opportunity to work on some other cars. This orange Lamborghini Gallardo featuring 20" Volk VR.G2 wheels came to us for some suspension work yesterday and we thought you might like to see it. Enjoy!
