M4 Convertible Gets a Full Akra Set-Up & More

(Saturday, Aug 29 2015, 04:53PM)

When this M4 came to our shop for its appointment, it was bone stock with exception to the trunk mounted Aeromotion carbon fiber wing. Once it was on our lift we proceeded to install a full Akrapovic exhaust set-up, which included the Evolution titanium system along with the stainless steel catless downpipes. K&N performance air filters and a JB4 tuner were then installed under the hood to maximize this convertible's power output. Next we installed an RKP carbon fiber rear diffuser, which compliments the Akrapovic carbon fiber exhaust tips nicely, along with the M Performance carbon fiber front splitters & lip. You might notice that this F83 retains its chrome trim and orange reflectors; that's because the owner was explicitly focused on maximizing the car's power and aerodynamics instead of its exterior cosmetics. While this M4 convertible probably won't appeal to the more conservative BMW enthusiast, there's certainly no denying that it must be a blast to drive around Southern California. Enjoy.

This Alpine White M5 swung by our shop for some personalization coding. Fitted with a set of Brembo GT brakes, this F10 has been given additional braking performance along with a subtle dash of red. IND painted front & rear reflectors, along with black kidney grilles and side markers clean up this sedan's exterior for an elegant appearance. Enjoy.

Alpine White Vorsteiner F13 M6 on our Dyno

(Saturday, Aug 29 2015, 04:53PM)

A while back we installed an Akrapovic Evolution titanium exhaust system on this Alpine White M6. Since then, we've seen this F13 undergo a complete transformation. Now featuring the full Vorsteiner carbon fiber exterior kit along with a set of Vorsteiner VSE-003 forged wheels, this is one seriously clean and sexy coupe. Recently it dropped by for a dyno session, where it put down a healthy 572hp and 519ft-lbs tq at the wheels. After its dyno runs we installed a carbon fiber steering wheel trim piece to add the finishing touch on this beautiful M6. Enjoy!

Sleeper 335i Gets APEX ARC-8 Wheels

(Saturday, Aug 29 2015, 04:53PM)

This clean Alpine White 335i came to our facility for a set of new wheels. Wanting an option that was both strong and lightweight, the owner of this E90 decided on the popular 18" APEX ARC-8s. Featuring classic CSL styling and a beautiful hyper silver finish, these flow formed ARC-8 wheels were the perfect choice for this sedan. You wouldn't think so just by looking at it, but this subtle E90 is actually putting down 438hp & 471ft-lbs tq at the wheels; those numbers are actually higher than the F8X M3s & M4s! Because of this we mounted up some sticky Michelin PSS tires, which are the very same ones you'll find on a new F8X. With its long list of unseen modifications and a new set lightweight wheels, this sleeper sedan is ready to run on the street or track. Enjoy!

Space Gray M5 Gets a Sporty Stance & Downpipes

(Saturday, Aug 29 2015, 04:53PM)

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.

M Performance Brakes Installed on a 435i Gran Coupe

(Saturday, Aug 29 2015, 04:53PM)

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.

H&R Springs Installed on an Alpine White M235i

(Saturday, Aug 29 2015, 04:53PM)

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

(Saturday, Aug 29 2015, 04:53PM)

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

(Saturday, Aug 29 2015, 04:53PM)

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.
