  1. 2019 Long Beach Blue F87 M2 Competition - Dyno

    2019 Long Beach Blue F87 M2 Competition - Dyno

    The standard M2 is already a great performance car. But when one throws in the S55 from the F8x M3/M4, the result is the fire-breathing M2 Competition. After putting one on our dyno, we found out that the M2C is about ~20whp shy of M3/M4 numbers, likely through factory de-tuning. We'll see what numbers we can reach once tuned as well as compare other M2Cs as they come through the doors. This particular M2C also received an alcantara-wrapped BMW M Performance Steering Wheel.

  2. 2011 Alpine White E92 M3

    The E92 M3, over time, became one of the favorite M3 models to both own and drive. Offering a new style with the classic front engine and rear drive layout, now with a V8, the M3 wasn’t a disappointing car. With owning a car comes personalization, be it performance oriented or just cosmetic upgrades. The owner of this M3 decided on both performance and cosmetic upgrades to make his ride one of a kind..

  3. Sakhir M3 Gets a Set of Downpipes and Some Carbon

    Coming to us in its stock form, this Sakhir Orange M3 got quite the list of modifications installed during its visit. First on the list was swapping out the OEM downpipes for a set of Zima Motorsports downpipes. Featuring a catless design and a black ceramic thermal coat, the free-flowing Zima downpipes extract additional power and torque from the S55 and decrease turbo lag. Next we added some carbon fiber pieces to make a more aggressive exterior, including the RKP front lip, 3D Design side skirts, IND kidney grilles, M Performance mirrors, an M Performance diffuser and an M Performance spoiler. Inside, we installed the M Performance steering wheel, DCT shift knob, DCT console trim and handbrake to give this F80 a true motorsport look and feel. IND color-matched front reflectors gave the finishing touches to this clean and sporty sedan. Enjoy!

  4. Gray White M6 Gran Coupe on the Dyno

    Just take one look at this M6 and you'll know it's a beast. Featuring a unique Gray White vinyl wrap, a full Vorsteiner carbon fiber aero kit, forged ADV.1 wheels and a slammed stance, this Gran Coupe hints that it has some additional horsepower under its hood. Thanks to a set of AMS catless downpipes, an ECU tune and a full Meisterschaft exhaust system, this M6 showed off by putting down 627hp and 544ft-lbs tq at the wheels on our Dynojet. Do a bit of math and you'll see that those numbers equate to roughly 750hp at the crank - in a sedan! To finish off the package, the black leather interior has been fitted with the awesome M Performance electronic steering wheel and a matching carbon fiber DCT shift knob. Enjoy!

  5. 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!

  6. BMW Electronic Performance Steering Wheel Demo

    We had the chance to install yet another one of the new BMW Electronic Performance Steering Wheel on an M3. This time, though, the car was equipped with DCT. While BMW states that this steering wheel is not compatible with DCT cars, we noticed the only "conflict" during the installation was the size of the switch cut outs in the back of wheel that house the paddle shifters. Intended for the automatic transmission paddle shifters, the cutouts are slightly bigger than the DCT switches, however all of the bolting points line-up. The result is a clean, 100% working installation that you would never think to question.
