  2. Alpine White M3 Convertible on the Dyno

    Compared to the coupes and sedans, modified M3 convertibles are pretty rare to come by. This Alpine White E93 dropped by our facility for some basic maintenance and a dyno session. Fitted with all the standard bolt-on power modifications, such as a tune, intake, pulley, track pipes and exhaust, this M3 put down 376hp and 271ft-lbs tq at the wheels. Quite a bit of work went into giving this vert a properly unique and aggressive exterior, from the super low stance, 20" wheels, gloss black accents, custom headlights, tinted taillights and carbon fiber all around. This M3 also sounds as mean as it looks, which gives onlookers twice the reason to turn their heads when it drives by. Enjoy!

  3. M3 Built for the Race Track

    We've seen this wild M3 at our shop a few times, but we finally had the chance to snap some photos during its most recent visit. Built primarily for the race track, this E92 features some top-quality performance parts, which include an Akrapovic GT4 titanium exhaust, forged Volk TE37 wheels, JRZ RS Pro coilovers, Brembo GT brakes and a full set of carbon fiber aero. Like most track cars this M3 is fitted with a pair of fixed-back race seats, a roll cage and a rear seat delete. In an attempt to shed ever more weight and add additional cooling, we swapped out the OEM aluminum hood for an ultra-light Seibon carbon fiber vented hood. While this M3 may look a bit too extreme for a lot of people's taste, it must be an absolute dream to thrash on a race track. Enjoy!

  4. Alpine White M3 on Hyper Blue TE37SLs

    While the Volk TE37SLs are one of the most popular wheel choices we see on M3s, these are probably the first we've seen in this Hyper Blue finish. And, wow, they really do pop on this Alpine White E92! Wanting a more aggressive offset from these 19" Volks, this customer had us install 10mm Macht Schnell wheel spacers in both the front and rear. While we were at it, we also went ahead and installed a Macht Schnell 75mm stud conversion paired with neochrome Project Kics R40 lug nuts. Underneath the car we swapped out the restrictive stock exhaust for a full stainless steel system, comprised of an Eisenmann Race muffler mated to a Challenge Street X-Pipe. For additional power gains, this 6SPD M3 has been fitted with a Macht Schnell Stage 2 Intake under its hood. Like many cars that come through here, an iND painted cosmetic package gives the finishing touches to this clean, eye-catching M3. Enjoy.

  5. A Loud M3 Sedan on our Dyno

    While many of our customers prefer an exhaust system that lies somewhere between too quiet and too loud, some of our customers just want their M3 to sound like an untamed beast. So is the case with this Jet Black E90, which features the Macht Schnell Race Catless X-Pipe mated to a modified OEM muffler section. Essentially a twin resonated full straight-pipe system, this exhaust combination lets the S65 scream as loud as it wants. Also equipped with a pulley, tune and intake, this head-turning M3 recorded a run of 390whp SAE, which translates into the sought after 400whp mark in STD. Watch the video below to hear this unassuming Sedan give it everything it has.

  6. Sleek & Dark Jet Black E92 M3

    Unlike Alpine White, Jet Black is rather uncommon among the E9X M3s around here. This dark E92 features the OEM ZCP wheels (which have been powdercoated in a gunmetal finish) that are aggressively spaced out with a set of Macht Schnell wheel spacers. To further improve the widened stance of the car, this M3 is riding on the popular B&G S2 springs, which lower the car 1.0" in the front and 0.5" in the rear. In the rear, an Arkym carbon fiber diffuser shrouds the polished stainless steel Eisenmann race exhaust. Giving this M3 an extra dosage of power are the Macht Schnell Stage 2 intake system, Macht Schnell pulleys, Macht Schnell track pipes and an ESS E-Flash tune. Our H8 LED angel eyes and IND's painted cosmetic package finish the exterior of this M3.

  7. A Track Ready Space Gray M3

    Only an hour after purchasing his stock E92 M3, this owner drove it to our shop to give it a major overhaul. Less than two weeks later the car was fully transformed into a daily-driven track machine. For increased power we installed a set of Macht Schnell pulleys, a Macht Schnell stage 2 intake, a catless Mastermind x-pipe and a set of titanium Akrapovic mufflers. Ultra lightweight Volk TE37SL Black Edition wheels wrapped in sticky Hankook RS-3 tires combined with top of the line KW Clubsport coilovers give this M3 a major improvement in handling performance. The interior features unique Takata racing seats, a rear seat delete, a BMW Alcantara steering wheel and billet DCT shifter paddles. JL motoring and Downforce USA carbon fiber accents paired with IND's painted reflectors, gills and grilles complete the exterior for a clean and aggressive look. The end result is a uniquely styled, head-turning M3 with performance to match.

  8. Stage 2 Intake Installed on Interlagos Blue M3

    Taking the place of the OEM accordion style intake elbow and air filter, the Macht Schnell Stage 2 Intake increases airflow by replacing the most restrictive components of the M3's intake system. Combined with the intake charge scoops behind the kidney grilles, the Stage 2 Intake instantly gives the S65 V8 a bump of 8-12hp and an aggressive intake sound. This Interlagos Blue E92 also features the matte black 5-spoke Niche M126 Apex wheels for a sharp, stealthy appearance.

  9. Space Gray E90 M3 with Red TE37s and Akrapovic Exhaust

    Space Gray looks good with pretty much any wheel finish, but apparently it looks especially nice with red TE37s. This M3 sedan combines the aggressive 18" Volks with B&G sport springs, which lower the car by 1.2" in the front and 1.0" in the rear to give the car a sporty stance. We then installed an Akrapovic exhaust featuring carbon fiber tips and Macht Schnell track pipes. These two exhaust modifications increase power, decrease weight and give the S65 V8 a deep, muscular tone. Enjoy.
