Space Gray M5 Gets a Sporty Stance & Downpipes

(Sunday, Apr 26 2015, 05:11PM)

The F10 M5 is an understated beast that really deserves a better stance than how it comes from the factory. Realizing this, the owner of this Space Gray M5 came to our facility for some Macht Schnell wheel spacers and a set of H&R sport springs. These two popular modifications work together by bringing the car lower to the ground while pushing the OEM wheels out to their proper places, creating an aggressive and sporty stance. While it was on our lift, we also installed a set of catless downpipes for increased horsepower and faster turbo spooling. Gloss black kidney grilles & side markers, IND painted reflectors and matte black painted wheels give the finishing touches to this twin turbo V8 sedan. Enjoy.

Black and red is a color combo that will probably never go out of style. This Black Sapphire 435i, fitted with custom red BMW roundels and red interior interior stitching, came to us to add a four more red accents to the exterior. For some additional stopping power and fantastic looks we installed the Brembo made M Performance brake upgrade kit, which features drilled & slotted rotors along with the very same calipers found on the F8X M3 & M4. Showcasing these new brakes are a set of 19" Forgestar F14 flow formed wheels in a beautiful matte bronze finish. Several other M Performance goodies can be found throughout this Gran Coupe, including the exhaust, suspension, kidney grilles, interior trim and the gear selector. The end result is a sleek and sporty F36 that is sure to attract some attention. Enjoy.

(Sunday, Apr 26 2015, 05:11PM)

A drop can instantly change the look and feel of any BMW for the better, which is why it's one of the most popular services we perform. For this Alpine White M235i we installed a set of H&R's sport lowering springs, which lowered the car by an inch in both the front and rear. With its lower center of gravity and more aggressive stance, this F22 is ready to hug the road and look great doing it. Enjoy!

Yas Marina Blue M4 Gets Akrapovic Downpipes

(Sunday, Apr 26 2015, 05:11PM)

After its previous visits, in which it was fitted with Apex wheels, KW suspension, an Akrapovic exhaust and some exterior pieces, this Yas Marina Blue M4 returned for a set of downpipes. To correspond with its Akrapovic Evolution titanium exhaust system, this F82 opted for the new Akrapovic stainless steel catless downpipes. This being the first set of Akra downpipes we've had the opportunity to install, we were blown away by their craftsmanship upon opening the box. Featuring laser cut flanges, cast ends with integrated O2 bungs, OEM quality heat shielding and flex joints, these downpipes are certainly on par with Akrapovic's usual standard of excellence. Once installed, we strapped this M4 to our dyno, where it put down 442hp and 433ft-lbs tq at the wheels without a tune. It also made quite a bit of noise as well! Check out the video below to hear this F82 in action. Enjoy.

Mineral Gray M4 on Gunmetal VMR V810 Wheels

(Sunday, Apr 26 2015, 05:11PM)

Mineral Gray looks fantastic with a set of darker colored wheels. Recognizing this, the owner of this M4 went for a set of the popular 19" VMR V810 flow formed wheels finished in gunmetal. Combined with a set of H&R sport lowering springs and some wider Bridgestone Potenza tires, these VMR wheels give the car its aggressive and sporty stance. While it was here, we strapped this JB4 equipped F82 to our dyno to see what numbers it would put down. With some E85 mix fuel in the tank, it recorded 503hp and 518ft-lbs tq at the wheels! Take a quick look at this stealthy and powerful example of an M4 below. Enjoy.

Alpine White 1M gets Brembo Brakes

(Sunday, Apr 26 2015, 05:11PM)

This Alpine White baby M car returned for some big boy brakes. Having previously been here for exhaust, coilovers, wheels and exterior mods, it was finally time to add the finishing touch to this built E82. Opting for a set of red Brembo GT brakes with 380mm Type 3 rotors, this 1M not only looks amazing, but it will probably pull your face off under hard braking. Enjoy!

A Beautiful Sakhir Orange F80 M3

(Sunday, Apr 26 2015, 05:11PM)

Carbon ceramic brakes: check. Carbonstructure cloth interior: check. 6SPD manual transmission: check. This Sakhir Orange M3 was built as driver's car, and that driver came to our facility for some upgrades. To get rid of the stock wheel gap and the sunken-in wheel look, we installed a set of H&R sport lowering springs in conjunction with some Macht Schnell spacers. Together they give this sedan its sporty and aggressive stance while improving its handling performance. Inside, we installed our new carbon fiber seat shells to go along with the OEM carbon fiber trim. The exterior has been fitted with the popular basics, including M Performance gloss black kidney grilles and side markers, along with IND color matched front and rear reflectors. The end result is a beautiful example of how the right modifications can bring an M car to the next level. Enjoy!

Remus Sport Exhaust System for F8X M3 & M4

(Sunday, Apr 26 2015, 05:11PM)

Remus presents a brand new, unique exhaust option for the F8X M3 & M4. The 5mm wider stainless steel X-pipe and connecting pipe eliminates the front silencer and secondary catalytic convertors. This deletion adds a rumble to the S55 engine and simultaneously amplifies the turbo spool to make it a distinct part of the powerful exhaust note. The rear muffler construction is inclusive of laser-cut brackets to mount the F8X M3/M4 exhaust valves and controllers from the OEM unit. This design seamlessly integrates the F8X Sport and Sport + settings with the REMUS unit and allows for the dynamic valves to open based on engine RPM and the driver selected Sport mode setting.

The system is available in an axle-back configuration which includes only the rear silencer & tips or as a full down-pipe back system inclusive of X-pipe and connecting pipe. There are four different tip options, allowing you to customize the look of the exhaust for your individual car. Watch the video below to hear this new exhaust in action!

In a quest for additional power and a louder sound, this Yas Marina Blue F82 dropped by for a full new exhaust set-up. For the sake of maximizing exhaust flow and minimizing turbo lag, we replaced the restrictive OEM downpipes with a set of Evolution Racewerks stainless steel catless downpipes. We then mated the new downpipes to an Akrapovic Evolution titanium exhaust system for additional free-flowing performance and substancial weight savings. In order for the S55 to get the most out of a new exhaust system it needs a tune; in this case, we installed the popular BMS JB4. The last step of this M4's first visit was cleaning up the exterior with gloss black kidney grilles, side markers and a trunk badge, along with installing the M Performance carbon fiber spoiler. In a few hours time, we took this stock F82 and transformed it into a beastly street machine. We're sure we'll be seeing it again soon. Enjoy.
