  1. 2018 Alpine White F80 M3 ZCP - Moton Suspension & Titan7 Wheels

    2018 Alpine White F80 M3 ZCP - Moton Suspension & Titan7 Wheels

    The M3 has always been a do-it-all car. M3 drivers utilize their car in a variety of ways--As a daily driver, weekend car, track car, and sometimes even as a rally car. In stock form, the F80 M3 excels at all 3 of those roles but with a couple of key upgrades, it can play those roles even better. This F80 M3 received 19'' Titan7 T-S5s, a very strong, forged and lightweight option. Along with the shiny new T-S5s, we also installed a set of Moton 2-Way Coilovers.

  2. VTT "Spline Lock" CrankHub Solution & Crank Bolt Capture For BMW N54/N55/S55

    VTT "Spline Lock" CrankHub Solution & Crank Bolt Capture For BMW N54/N55/S55

    We are happy to announce that VTT is offering the only complete S55 crank hub solution that does NOT require the crank to be drilled for pins. VTT's uses their proprietary "SplineLock" technology that uses high tolerance machined splines which press into the crank, and positively lock the hub to the crank to prevent slippage. The splines are machined in such a way that rotational forces drive the hub, and splines deeper into the crank meaning when the hub encounters a situation that would normally slip a stock hub the splined hub is driven into the crank to keep it in place (much like a splined extractor). VTT has spent many months testing, and retesting this design, utilizing well over 10 different samples to come to their final production version.

  3. 2017 Austin Yellow F80 M3 - 100% E85 Bootmod3 Tune + Pure Turbos Stage 2 Upgrade

    2017 Austin Yellow F80 M3 - 100% E85 Bootmod3 Tune + Pure Turbos Stage 2 Upgrade

    The F80 M3 is a fast car out of the box. But for some, the stock power output simply isn't enough. It's not uncommon for someone to throw power mods at their car and nothing else. The owner of this F80 M3 however was more thoughtful about choices in mods. The owner desired 700+ at the wheels and did so by way of a 100% E85 Tune and a turbo upgrade. To help tame that power, a set of bigger brakes also came into play.

  4. 2005 Carbon Black E46 M3 - KW V3 & Sparco SPX

    2005 Carbon Black E46 M3 - KW V3 & Sparco SPX

    Upgrading your car's seats and suspension system are some of the most worthwhile modifications you can make. While a upgrade such as coilovers can dramatically change the way the car handles and feels on the road, in many ways, swapping out the seat is an even bigger change. Along with the steering wheel, pedals, and shift knob, the seat is a major touch point; one of the main ways (if not the main way) the driver interacts with a car. Most factory seats are a one-size-fits-all sort of deal and do not do the best job in keeping the driver in place during sportier driving. A good aftermarket seat with more aggressive bolstering would do better in keeping the driver in place under high performance driving, comfortably. The Sparco SPX is a good example of said type of seat.

    2002 Laguna Seca Blue E46 M3 - AST 5100 Coilovers & Titan 7 T-R10s

The 5100 Series shock absorbers utilise inverted / upside down technology. The inverted design is race proven technology and produces an extremely strong damper, providing better suspension geometry under heavy lateral and braking loads as seen in a road and track environment.

  9. 2018 Fire Orange F80 M3 ZCP, Part 3 - More M Performance!

    2018 Fire Orange F80 M3 ZCP, Part 3 - More M Performance!

    This Fire Orange regular came back for some more! Keeping in line with the OEM M Performance theme, the owner opted for additional factory upgrades--namely the M Performance exhaust system and the 763M wheels. These were certainly good choices as they made this orange beast look and sound even more mean. The black finish of the 763Ms goes well with the various carbon trim front to back and top to bottom on this car. The M Performance exhaust not only sounds great but also offers great weight savings, as the stock ZCP exhaust is still relatively heavy! All in all, this car is shaping up to be one of the best builds we've worked on. We can't wait to see what else is in store!

  10. 2018 BMW i3s

    2018 BMW i3s

    The i3 was always quick and nimble for what it was--a compact EV primarily designed for urban travel (with a range-extender option for folks who need to drive some more). The i3s is the newest iteration of the eco-pocket rocket. Power has been bumped up to 184 HP and 199 ft-lbs (compared to the 170 HP/184 ft-lbs of the standard model). Top speed has been increased from 93 mph to 99 mph. 0-60 times have also dropped from 7.3 seconds to a 6.9. It's certainly no M2 or M3 in regards to speed or power it's still a decent amount of car for the average driver. While the i3s may seem underwhelming for most performance junkies, it does offer a look into the future of alternative-fuel performance cars.
