Gray White M6 Gran Coupe on the Dyno

(Tuesday, Apr 28 2015, 02:25PM)

Just take one look at this M6 and you'll know it's a beast. Featuring a unique Gray White vinyl wrap, a full Vorsteiner carbon fiber aero kit, forged ADV.1 wheels and a slammed stance, this Gran Coupe hints that it has some additional horsepower under its hood. Thanks to a set of AMS catless downpipes, an ECU tune and a full Meisterschaft exhaust system, this M6 showed off by putting down 627hp and 544ft-lbs tq at the wheels on our Dynojet. Do a bit of math and you'll see that those numbers equate to roughly 750hp at the crank - in a sedan! To finish off the package, the black leather interior has been fitted with the awesome M Performance electronic steering wheel and a matching carbon fiber DCT shift knob. Enjoy!

Sakhir Orange M4 Gets Lowered and Widened

(Tuesday, Apr 28 2015, 02:25PM)

A few months ago we had the opportunity of installing the full BMW M Performance aero package on this Sakhir Orange F82. Recently it returned to our facility for a couple of suspension modifications. In order to get the perfect dialed-in ride height we installed the KW HAS sleeve-over lowering kit, which retains the OEM EDC functionality and allows for independent ride height adjustment. To complete this M4's stance we then installed a set of Macht Schnell wheel spacers, 15mm in the front and 12mm in the rear, to push the OEM wheels out to their proper place. The new sporty stance combined with the M Performance carbon fiber goodies really makes this Sakhir Orange F82 stand out. Enjoy.

Mecedes-Benz SLS 63 AMG on our Dyno

(Tuesday, Apr 28 2015, 02:25PM)

When we scheduled this SLS 63 AMG for a dyno session, we were expecting it to be an understated Mercedes color. Something like silver, black, burgundy red, etc. Instead we were surprised with this extraordinary Austin Yellow-like metallic finish, which blew our minds when we were told it was a vinyl wrap. It has to be, by far, the highest quality wrap we've ever seen; even up close and in person it's really hard to believe it isn't a paint job. Like most of the BMWs we see here, this SLS had all of it's chrome exterior trim pieces painted gloss black for a sleek and aggressive style. It's been lowered on a set of KW V3 coilovers and fitted with a set of ADV.1 forged wheels, which have been wrapped with some truly massive 375/20/21 tires in the rear. Performance wise, this AMG features an ECU tune and headers by Weistec Engineering along with a custom valvetronic exhaust system. And yes, it is loud. On our dyno, this naturally aspirated beast put down 539hp and 453ft-lbs torque at the wheels! We shot plenty of video footage and photos so you could drool over this car as much as we did when it was here. Enjoy!

A couple weeks ago we installed an ESS VT2-625 supercharger system and a set of HRE wheels on this Alpine White M3. Yesterday it returned for an exhaust upgrade. Wanting only the best products for his E92, this customer opted for the Akrapovic Evolution titanium exhaust system, which features high-flow cats, an incredibly lightweight design and an exotic exhaust note. After completing the installation, we strapped this supercharged coupe to our dyno to see if it picked up any additional power. With the stock exhaust system this M3 previously recorded 537whp and 350wtq; with the Akrapovic, it recorded 562whp and 365wtq for a gain of 25whp and 15wtq! This single modification improved almost every aspect of this E92, including weight, sound, looks and power. Check out the video below to hear this beastly M3 in action. Enjoy!

VMR V810s Installed on a Melbourne Red M3

(Tuesday, Apr 28 2015, 02:25PM)

This beautiful 6MT M3 swung by our shop for a new set of wheels. Featuring lightweight flow-formed construction, wide fitments and classic styling at a low price point, you just can't go wrong with a set of VMR V810s. This E92 opted for a set in VMR's stunning Hyper Silver finish, which really pops against the Melbourne Red paint. And because these wheels are made to accept the OEM BMW center caps, this M3 was able to maintain its OEM look. Enjoy.

Finally, there is an easy solution for on-the-fly exhaust valve control! Macht Schnell's new Exhaust Valve Control (EVC) module allows for full user control of the exhaust system at the touch of a button. The EVC module is compatible with the F2X 2-series, F3X 3-Series, F3X 4-Series and the F8X M3/M4. Check out the video below to see it in action. Enjoy!

Estoril Blue M235i Gets Transformed

(Tuesday, Apr 28 2015, 02:25PM)

This Estoril Blue M235i came to our facility for a complete transformation. The first order of business was getting the low and wide stance that every BMW owner wants. To accomplish this, we installed a set of ST SpeedTech coilovers, a new set of beautiful matte gunmetal BBS CH wheels and a set of Macht Schnell wheel spacers. We then focused on the exterior of the car, installing a Light Weight front lip spoiler, a custom painted M Performance rear diffuser, a pair of M Performance stainless steel exhaust tips and an M Performance carbon fiber trunk spoiler. IND painted front reflectors and BMW gloss black kidney grilles added the final touches to this aggressive F22. Enjoy!

Stealthy 335i Sedan Sleeper

(Tuesday, Apr 28 2015, 02:25PM)

The owner of this triple black 335i wanted to extract additional power from his N54, but also wanted to maintain its stealthy appearance. To do this, we first installed the popular Burger Motorsport JB4 tuner in conjunction with a set of thermal coated Macht Schnell catless downpipes; together, they add substantial horsepower and decrease turbo lag. Concerned about heat build-up, we then installed the larger Evolution Racewerks intercooler and the twin oil cooler upgrade, both of which were black anodized for additional cooling and a hidden appearance. Having already been fitted with a set of Performance Friction brakes, this Black Sapphire E90 is more than ready to handle its new power. Enjoy.

ST Coilovers Installed on Alpine White E39 530i

(Tuesday, Apr 28 2015, 02:25PM)

Fitted with a set of HRE C90 3-piece wheels, this super clean Alpine White 530i stopped by to get lowered. Wanting the ability to dial in a perfect ride height, this customer opted to have us install the popular ST Speedtech coilovers. Manufactured by KW, the ST coilovers feature preset settings that provide an optimal balance between performance and comfort, while also allowing for independent ride height adjustment. With it's new lowered stance, this E39 proves that even though a BMW might be a couple generations old, it can still look sporty and modern. Enjoy.

Alpine White M3 Convertible on the Dyno

(Tuesday, Apr 28 2015, 02:25PM)

Compared to the coupes and sedans, modified M3 convertibles are pretty rare to come by. This Alpine White E93 dropped by our facility for some basic maintenance and a dyno session. Fitted with all the standard bolt-on power modifications, such as a tune, intake, pulley, track pipes and exhaust, this M3 put down 376hp and 271ft-lbs tq at the wheels. Quite a bit of work went into giving this vert a properly unique and aggressive exterior, from the super low stance, 20" wheels, gloss black accents, custom headlights, tinted taillights and carbon fiber all around. This M3 also sounds as mean as it looks, which gives onlookers twice the reason to turn their heads when it drives by. Enjoy!
