  1. Laguna Seca Blue Widebody M3 gets an Awron Gauge

    As far as M3s go, you can't really be much more modified than this Laguna Seca Blue E92. Featuring modifications like a Liberty Walk widebody kit, a custom LTMW front bumper, an ESS VT1-550 supercharger system, an Akrapovic exhaust, massive Work wheels, a StopTech big brake kit, KW Clubsport coilovers, Recaro seats, a roll cage, aggressive carbon fiber front & rear spoilers and more, this M3 is by definition an absolute head turner. Yesterday we had the opportunity to further modify this M3 by installing Awron's top of the line DGA Kompressor 2 gauge. Able to display real time boost, horsepower, torque, velocity, g-forces, intake temp, exhaust temp, water temp, oil temp, transmission temp, differential temp, air/fuel ratio, acceleration, voltage, fuel pressure and oil pressure, this do-it-all Awron unit was the perfect match for this wild M3. Enjoy.

  2. VT1-550 Supercharged M3 Sedan

    If you're wanting to make over 400hp to the wheels in an E9X M3, then you'll have to forget the minor bolt-on modifications and enter the world of forced induction. ESS Tuning offers a selection of four different supercharger systems for the M3; the VT1-550 is their entry level system at an entry level price. We recently installed this supercharger on this 2011 Alpine White M3 sedan and we were impressed with the results. With nothing other than a set of Corsa mufflers, this M3 put down a very healthy 502hp and 326lb-ft tq at the wheels on our Dynojet 224xLC Dyno. Compared to the previous state of this M3 the VT1-550 supercharger added over 125hp to the wheels, which is, to say the least, something you'll really feel.
