Gunmetal VMR V810s on our Z4M

(Saturday, Apr 18 2015, 04:41PM)

Our project Z4M is constantly changing up its wheels; this time around it's running a set of VMR's newest wheel, the V810. Manufactured using a process called flow-forming, the V810 is stronger and lighter than previous offerings. Featuring an elegant double 7-spoke design, the V810s give our Z4M a motorsport inspired look without breaking the bank. And now that they're available in a glossy gunmetal finish, they really add some contrast to any Alpine White car.

Some Carbon Fiber for a White C63 AMG

(Saturday, Apr 18 2015, 04:41PM)

Recently we've been seeing quite a few AMGs come through our shop. Just yesterday, this brand new White W204 C63 AMG came to us for some carbon fiber exterior pieces. In the front we installed the Mode Carbon Luftstrom lip, which features a sharp, angular design that protrudes front the front bumper. Replacing the plastic OEM diffuser is a matching Mode Carbon diffuser, which is the same design as the OEM piece. On the trunk, Mercedes-Benz supplied their own carbon fiber spoiler to tie the exterior together. With the interior already equipped with OEM carbon fiber trim, the exterior finally matches the same sporty look and feel.

S54 Powered E36 M3 on the Dyno

(Saturday, Apr 18 2015, 04:41PM)

As an M3 enthusiast, if you saw this particular E36 on the street, you'd probably be impressed with the condition it's in. After all, this M3 is pushing 18 years and yet it still has its glossy black paint, a clean interior and its original 17" wheels. However, nothing about this car would lead you to believe that it's hiding something special under its hood: an S54 power plant. Taken from an E46 M3, the high-revving 3.2L engine and 6-speed manual transmission have been seamlessly transplanted into this E36 for a huge increase in performance. On the dyno, this car proved it by recording a healthy 293whp, which is substantially more than the 240 crank hp of the original S50 engine! After the dyno session we had the opportunity to corner balance this M3, dialing in a perfect 50/50 weight distribution.

Black F32 435i in the Wild

(Saturday, Apr 18 2015, 04:41PM)

The last time we saw this Black 435i we installed a set of Matte Black Vorsteiner VSE-003 wheels. However, by the time the car was finished, the sun had set and we only had time for some quick "in the shop" photos. Thankfully, the owner of this F32 was kind enough to recently send us some of his own photos (which are very excellent, by the way). Since we've seen it, the car has gained quite a few modifications, including H&R springs, an intake, a catless downpipe, a JB4 tune, methanol injection and some black painted accessories. From the looks of it, this highly tuned 435i is ready to take on the M4.

Part of being a vendor is extensively testing the parts we offer to the public. While most manufacturers do provide their own specifications, putting the extra effort in testing gives us an in-depth experience of each manufacturers components so we can validate claims. We then share this info with both manufacturers and public to get a better understanding and back up claims with real world results and experience.

When an invite was extended for a private track day at Famoso, we immediately jumped on the opportunity. The M3 is not the best drag platform, but holds its own pretty well. With California having a relatively dry winter, conditions were optimal to expect some pretty good times. With some traction control issues, we were eventually able to crack a couple of low 11 second runs, almost dipping into the 10s. Best Time/MPH is as follows:

Best 60ft: 1.848
Best 1/4mi: 11.004
Best MPH: 130.40MPH

You read that right,.004 seconds from entering 10-second territory! Not too shabby for a street driven vehicle, especially seeing that MPHs we were pulling.

Black C63 AMG Sedan: Round 1

(Saturday, Apr 18 2015, 04:41PM)

Prior to switching to the dark side, the owner of this C63 AMG used to drive a highly modified supercharged E46 M3. According to him there are no regrets, but like the M3, this C63 could not remain stock for long. Taking care of necessities, we first installed a set of KW V3 coilovers to drop this sedan to it's intended ride height. To make the most of the massive NA V8 under the hood, we installed an Eisenmann race exhaust system to further enhance growl of this torquey beast. Finally, replacing the stock trunk spoiler with the much more aggressive Arkym version boosted the aggressive appearance of this dark, clean AMG.

Red Vinyl Wrapped F10 535i M-Sport

(Saturday, Apr 18 2015, 04:41PM)

We've seen our share of vinyl wrapped BMWs come through here, but this color is a first for us. Called "3M Dark Red", we think that the reddish/orange color actually suits the F10 M-Sport's body quite nicely! Featuring an Arkym carbon fiber front lip, 3D Design roof & trunk spoilers, SLEK carbon fiber side skirts and an OEM M5 diffuser, this unique 535i is aggressively styled and ready to turn heads. This car isn't all about looks though; fitted with KW V3s, Macht Schnell Wheel Spacers, a JB4 tuner and a Burger Motorsports intake system, this F10 has the performance to match it's looks.

White Porsche Carrera S on our Dyno

(Saturday, Apr 18 2015, 04:41PM)

We recently had this 2013 991 Carrera S in our shop for a dyno session. Fitted with a Cargraphic x-pipe, this 911 didn't just sound amazing, but it also recorded a healthy 353whp and 290wtq. Watch the video below to hear this car for yourself.
