  1. Ohlins Coilovers for a Road & Track M3

    For daily driven cars that make their way to the track on the weekends, the Ohlins Road & Track coilover system is the perfect solution. Featuring dual flow valve (DFV) technology, these Ohlins coilovers offer superior handling without sacrificing daily comfort. To get the most from the new suspension, we dialed-in a 50/50 weight distribution with a corner balancing service, and then configured a performance alignment using the Vorshlag adjustable camber plates. To further improve its handling capabilities, this Jerez Black M3 is equipped with a set of lightweight Volk Racing TE37SLs wrapped in super sticky Hankook RS-3s. Exterior modifications are sublte, consisting of an IND painted cosmetic package, front splitters, a rear diffuser, a trunk spoiler and our larger exhaust tips. On the inside, BMWPedals billet DCT paddles have been mated to a BMW Performance Alcantara steering wheel for a proper motorsport look and feel. The end result is a subtle, double-duty E92 that's capable of grabbing groceries and setting lap times.

  4. Interlagos Blue VF620 M3 Sedan at Sonoma Raceway

    This frequent customer of ours and the owner of this Interlagos Blue E90 M3 is addicted to track days. When this car first came into our shop it was in 100% bone stock form; that same day we installed a 620hp supercharger kit. Since then we've seen this car slowly evolve into the subtle, purpose built track-day/daily-driver machine that it is now. Equipped with a set of high-end and exclusive JRZ coilovers, super lightweight 10" wide APEX wheels, ultra sticky Hankook Ventus TD tires, powerful AP Racing brakes and Vorshlag adjustable camber plates, this is one of the best feeling M3's we've had the pleasure of driving. Here are some photos by Cali Photography from a recent track day event at Sonoma Raceway. Enjoy.

  5. EAS Project Z4M Update

    Our project Z4M got its latest round of mods just in time for Bimmerfest this year. Following its recent 525hp ESS supercharger installation, we installed a black StopTech big brake kit in the front and rear, satin black 19" Rays 57 Motorsport wheels and APR Performance's newest carbon fiber front wind splitter. This E86 M car is really coming together; very few other BMWs that we've had the opportunity of driving provide a similar level of feedback, handling and fun all in one package. While this Z4M is built primarily with weekend trackdays in mind, it's so fun to drive that it commutes to the eas office everyday. Enjoy.

  6. New ESS VT2-525 Supercharger for Z4M

    The VT2-525 supercharger system is the latest kit released by ESS for the E85/6 Z4M platforms. With a 162whp and 80 ft-lb TQ gain after installation, this kit certainly isn't for the faint of heart! The ESS VT2-525 differs from it's VT1-445 predecessor with it's Air/Air intercooler system, keeping intake charge temperatures nice and cool. This is especially helpful for extended 20+ minute sessions. An upgraded Setrab oil cooler replaced the OEM unit with heavy duty brackets to keep everything in place as if it were offered by factory.

    Big injectors are included, the fueling alone is rated up to 475whp. With a jump in boost from 5psi to 7psi, the S54 transforms into a beast after installation. A huge air/air intercooler fits cleanly behind the factory bumper cover - giving a tease of what's underneath the hood. Rotomolded intake tract rivals the factory pieces. Heavy duty hardware shows the kit is extremely well engineered. New billet crank and water pump pulleys are included.

    ESS knocked it out of the park wit this kit. Those in the SoCal area, feel free to drop by and see the Z4M in person.

  7. Jet Black E92 M3 gets an Akrapovic Evolution & APEX EC-7s

    Wanting to prepare his M3 for an upcoming track day, this mostly stock E92 came to us for a few upgrades. First on this list was the Akrapovic Slip-On Titanium Exhaust System, which saves 31lbs over the stock exhaust system and gives the S65 V8 an aggressive tone. Lightweight 18" APEX EC-7 wheels wrapped in super sticky Hankook RS-3s would help give this M3 the necessary grip in the high speed corners it was sure to encounter. Finally, Vorshlag camber plates were installed on the stock front suspension to add the ability to dial in the settings for maximum handling performance.

  9. Arqray Titanium Exhaust Installed on our Z4M

    Our project Z4M is a track machine featuring a list of modifications such as a VF supercharger, Work wheels, AST coilovers, Recaro racing seats and an APR carbon fiber wing. With all of these mods, it was finally time to replace the stock exhaust. Our choice was to install the full titanium exhaust made by Japanese manufacturer Arqray. The new sound is loud and aggressive, which perfectly matches the theme of the car. As an added benefit the titanium mufflers and x-pipe weigh exactly half as much as the OEM system, saving 30lbs!
