Function meets elegance. Here's an Alpine White F1 5-Series M-Sport with tons of parts from our friends at Vorsteiner. The V-FF 102 Flow Forged Wheels, finished in a Carbon Graphite, is exceptional for its strength to weight ratio. Vorsteiner's Flow Forged Technology is on average 25% lighter compared to a conventional cast construction, yet substantially stronger. These wheels have the performance to go along with its great styling. The car also features the Carbon Fiber Aero package which includes a Lip Spoiler, Trunk Spoiler, and Rear Diffuser. Feauturing Vorsteiner's Autoclaved Pre-Preg Carbon Fiber structure, these aero parts boast superior stiffness, strength, and durability when compared to traditional hand-laid carbon fiber composites. Check out these photos and let us know what you think. Enjoy!

 

One-Of-A-Kind Fashion Grey M3

(Monday, Jul 6 2015, 06:07PM)

Last week, this gorgeous F80 M3 came by our place. Created through BMW's Individual program, this car features a Fashion Grey exterior which definitely turned some heads around here. This factory paint is unlike anything out there. The exterior exhibits a change in hue depending on which angle you are viewing it from. Complimenting the exterior is a breathtaking interior which features more Individual colors. The combination of Fjord Blue, Silverstone, and carbon fiber make wonderful trio. Topping off the package is an Eisenmann Performance Exhaust and a good amount of BMW M Performance goodies. Breathtaking looks, amazing sound, and great performance; this Fashion Grey F80 M3 has it all. Admittedly, we were a bit sad to see it leave but we're excited to be seeing it again in the future. Enjoy this set of photos and stay tuned for more coming soon!

 

H&R Springs on a Moonstone M4

(Monday, Jul 6 2015, 06:07PM)

Here's another BMW Individual which came over straight from the dealership. This time, it's a F83 M4 Convertible featuring a brilliant Moonstone Metallic finish. How do you take a good looking car and make it look even better? You put on a set of H&R Sport Lowering Springs which gives the car a more aggressive appearance. These popular springs lower the front and rear of the car by 1" and are excellent for street use. Now this car has a sporty stance to go along with its awesome paint. Take a look at some of the photos we shot during the installation and of the finished product. As always...Enjoy!

Fire Orange E63 M6 Gets Benchmarked

(Monday, Jul 6 2015, 06:07PM)

Here's a unique color: Fire Orange. This custom wrapped E63 M6 coupe came to us looking to add power to match its fast looks. We installed an ESS tune on it which maximizes the performance of the S85 V10 engine. Next, we strapped it to our Dynojet dyno to find out exactly how much power this car put to the ground. In combination with the RPI Scoops, RPI Full Exhaust, RD Underdrive Pulleys, and BMC Air Filter, this bright M6 churned out a respectable 472hp and 354ft-lbs tq at the wheels. We can't wait for what the owner plans next for his Fire Orange beauty. Enjoy!

Dyno Day (4-11-15)

(Monday, Jul 6 2015, 06:07PM)

This past Saturday's Dyno Day was a ton of fun; we had an awesome turnout of powerful cars and great people. Among the cars that were strapped to our Dynojet, there were a bunch of M3s & M4s, a new C7 Z06 and even an i3! A pair of brightly colored widebodies, being Vorsteiner's F82 and an RWB 993, parked out front to add some delicious eye candy to the event. We'd like to thank everyone who was able to make it out, but for all of you who couldn't, here's 100 photos to give you an idea of how the day went. Enjoy!

Volk ZE40 Wheels Installed on Space Gray E92 M3

(Monday, Jul 6 2015, 06:07PM)

Fitted with the nearly complete catalog of Dinan parts and Vorsteiner carbon fiber aero, this M3 swung by for some new wheels. Wanting a high-end set of wheels that were light weight, strong and have their own unique style, this owner opted for the ZE40s. Made by Volk, these wheels are forged in Japan and feature a stunning Matte Blue Gunmetal finish, which is sure to grab the attention of onlookers. Combined with the red Dianan branded Brembo brakes, these wheels help add an exciting dash of color to this Space Gray E92's exterior. Enjoy!

M4 Gets an S65 Heart Transplant

(Monday, Jul 6 2015, 06:07PM)

When BMW introduced the new F8X M3 & M4, the world witnessed the demise of the naturally aspirated M car. While the S55 I6 twin turbo motor puts down substantially more power and torque than any of its M3 predecessors, there are still some purists who long for the iconic sound and linear power delivery of the high-revving S65 V8. This track-going customer is one of those purists. When we were asked if we could make an S65 M4 happen, we jumped at the opportunity. It wasn't the easiest engine swap we've performed, but we were able to complete the job just in time for April Fools Day. Enjoy!

This M4 has been at our shop many times, during which we installed a full Akrapovic exhaust system, APEX wheels, some exterior cosmetic pieces and a KW HAS lowering kit. However, after participating in a few track days, this F82 returned to get a proper track-oriented suspension. Wanting only the best, this owner opted for the coveted JRZ RS Pro coilover system. This suspension, which is manufactured in the Netherlands, takes performance to the next level with its remote canisters and digressive blow off valves. With a huge range of adjustability, these high-end coilovers deliver maximum handling performance while on the track, but can also be dialed in for a comfortable ride on the street. While on the lift, we also mounted up some Yokohama ADVAN AD08R tires onto the OEM 19" wheels, allowing for a dedicated set of APEX EC-7 wheels wrapped in Hankook RS3s whenever they're needed for the track. With it's latest upgrades, this Yas Marina Blue M4 is a seriously awesome double duty machine. Enjoy!

Guards Red Rauh-Welt Begriff 993 911

(Monday, Jul 6 2015, 06:07PM)

One of the perks of working here is that we get to see some pretty sweet cars on a regular basis.This Guards Red Rah-Welt Begriff 993 is certainly one of them. We were lucky enough to shoot this Porsche on the day that it was finished, and right before it got stickered up for a car show. Featuring a wild custom widebody kit, a double-staked wing, massively wide wheels, a roll cage, a single Sabelt racing seat, Brembo brakes and JRZ RS Pro coilovers, the guys over at RWB LA built this high-end 911 to turn people's heads. If you like this one, then you'll also want to check out this similar Riviera Blue version that dropped by a while back. Enjoy!

Frozen Chrome M4 Gets a Full Akrapovic Exhaust

(Monday, Jul 6 2015, 06:07PM)

This M4 caught everyone's attention when it rolled into the shop; we've never seen anything like it! Featuring a unique matte chrome vinyl wrap, this stunning F82 came to us for an exhaust upgrade. Wanting the only the best for their BMW, this owner opted for the popular Akrapovic Evolution titanium exhaust system along with a set of Akrapovic stainless steel downpipes. This high-end combination provides massive weight savings, less restriction and a lot more sound. And the beautiful matte finish carbon fiber tips really pop against the luminous vinyl wrap. The exterior has been adorned with some M Performance goodies, including the carbon fiber rear spoiler and the carbon fiber front spoilers, and even though the rest of the car is chromed, the OEM kidney grilles and side markers were swapped with some gloss black replacements. Now that it has a new Akrapovic exhaust system, this M4 will turn the heads of anyone with eyes or ears. Enjoy!
