APEX EC-7 Wheels Installed on a Mineral White F30

(Thursday, Aug 27 2015, 09:24PM)

This Mineral White 335i swung by our shop for a new set of APEX wheels and a fresh set of Michelin tires. Popular with both the track and street crowd, these flow-formed APEX EC-7 wheels are super strong, lightweight and stylish on any BMW model. In order to maintain an OEM look, the owner of this F30 had us install the original BMW center caps rather than the supplied APEX ones. Simply by upgrading to these beautiful Race Silver 18" wheels and PSS tires, this otherwise stock 335i now looks and drives how a sports car should. Enjoy.

European Car Tuner GP Video

(Thursday, Aug 27 2015, 09:24PM)

Last month we showed you some of our own photos and video of our Austin Yellow M4 at the 2014 European Car Tuner GP. Now, Motor Trend has just released their official video from the event! The 13 minute clip has some really great footage and info, so take some time to check it out. Enjoy!

Space Gray M3 Gets Lowered & Supercharged

(Thursday, Aug 27 2015, 09:24PM)

This mostly stock M3 was dropped off at our facility to get a major increase in performance. The first order of business was strapping this E92 to our Dynojet to get a baseline reading; at 360hp & 265ft-lbs tq at the wheels, this S65 V8 was making healthy power in its naturally aspirated form. We then installed an ESS VT2-625 intercooled supercharger system, which delivers 6.5PSI of forced induction in the most linear way possible. While on the lift, we also installed the popular KW HAS sleeve-over kit and a set of Macht Schnell spacers for a low and wide stance. The car was finished just in time for our most recent Dyno Day, where this Space Gray M3 showed off in front of the crowd by putting down 540whp and 351wtq. With it's OEM ZCP wheels and just a few subtle carbon fiber exterior pieces, this sleeper M3 doesn't warn anyone of what it's really capable of. Enjoy.

This Black Sapphire F83 is the first M4 convertible that we've had at our shop! Having been equipped with the BMW M Performance titanium exhaust system with carbon fiber tips, it was only logical to add diffuser. We went ahead and installed the RKP diffuser in a 2x2 carbon fiber weave, which matches the beautiful M Performance tips quite nicely. Next, we installed a set of gloss black kidney grille surrounds, some iND painted reflectors and painted keyhole cover to give this convertible a blacked-out look. With it's sleek style, aggressive rear end and a 6SPD manual transmission, this convertible is one seriously sweet M car. Enjoy.

Dyno Day - December 20th 2014

(Thursday, Aug 27 2015, 09:24PM)

Or most recent Dyno Day was a huge success! This time around it was only BMWs on the Dynojet; interestingly enough, not a single one was naturally aspirated. We'd like to thank everyone who showed up to participate and spectate, but if you couldn't make it out, then enjoy these photos and video!

Cosmetic Upgrades for a Sakhir Orange M4

(Thursday, Aug 27 2015, 09:24PM)

This brand new Sakhir Orange stopped by for some quick cosmetic upgrades last week. Wanting to get rid of the OEM chrome trim, we installed iND matte black painted kidney grille surrounds, side markers and an M4 trunk badge for a sleek, sporty look. Color matched Sakhir Orange front reflectors complete the clean front end of this otherwise stock F82 coupe. Enjoy!

From Mild to Wild: Mineral White F80 M3

(Thursday, Aug 27 2015, 09:24PM)

This Mineral White M3 made the 400+ mile drive all the way from Sacramento to our shop to get some dyno time and modifications. Looking for both more power and sound from his S55, this owner had us install the full Eisenmann exhaust system along with the Eisenmann catless downpipes. Featuring a black ceramic thermal coat the full Eisenmann exhaust looks super menacing under the car, especially when paired with the aggressive Vorsteiner carbon fiber diffuser. It also happens to be insanely loud, as you'll clearly be able to hear in the two videos below. Once we were finished with the exhaust and diffuser, we then installed the popular Burger Motorsports JB4 tuner for an insant boost in power. The dyno results speak for themselves, resulting in 456hp & 467ft-lb tq at the wheels; an increase of 55hp and 66ft-lbs tq! Along with its new sound and power, this F80 features a set of Vorsteiner 3-piece forged wheels, H&R sport lowering springs and a full iND painted cosmetic package, making this one of the meanest F80s that we've worked on. Enjoy!

M Performance Carbon Fiber for a Silverstone F80

(Thursday, Aug 27 2015, 09:24PM)

This stunning 6SPD Silverstone F80 swung by our shop this week for a couple of carbon fiber items. Wanting to perfectly match the 2x2 interior trim, this M3 owner opted for the BMW M Performance carbon fiber mirror caps and trunk spoiler. These two items instantly added some bold contrast against the bluish-silver paint, and gave its sedan body a more aggressive profile. Enjoy!

Stormtrooper M4

(Thursday, Aug 27 2015, 09:24PM)

It isn't really that difficult to notice some similarities between an Alpine White F82 and an Imperial Stormtrooper. In fact, this particular M4 with its additional M Performance carbon fiber splitters, black lip and carbon fiber trunk spoiler makes the resemblance almost uncanny! Realizing the correlation, the owner of this M4 coupe made some custom valve stem caps in our waiting room while waiting for his KW HAS lowering spring kit to be installed. Simply by super-gluing Lego Stormtrooper helmets to the OEM valve stem caps, this clean F82 demonstrates a fun personal touch and a rare bit of humor that is usually unheard of in the car modification realm. Enjoy!

101 Photos from No Fly Zone Arizona

(Thursday, Aug 27 2015, 09:24PM)

This past weekend we drove our M4 all the way out to Arizona to participate in the Omega Motorsports No Fly Zone event. Held at Gila Bend Airfield, the event consisted of 1/2 mile side by side racing with a wide range of super fast cars. Bringing a modded M4 out to one of these airstrip events is kind of like bringing a knife to a canon fight; you know that there's some serious competition when a Bugatti Veyron shows up and gets spanked! We still had a ton of fun racing other cars with similar power numbers, as well as trying to beat our own records throughout the day. Our best trap speed in the M4 was 151mph, while the fastest run of the day was 207mph by an insane Porsche 997 Turbo. All in all, it was a great event with tons of track time, beautiful weather, and a bunch of familiar faces. Check out these photos to see what kind of cars came out of the woodwork for this event. Enjoy!
