Black Sapphire M4 Gets a Tune & a Drop

(Saturday, Apr 25 2015, 10:57AM)

Ever since BMW did away with the naturally aspirated S65 V8 and introduced the twin-turbo S55 I6, it has become much easier and cost effective to extract additional power from the F8X platform. Wih the E9X M3, the only real way to make big power was to install a supercharger system; now with the F8X, all one needs to do is plug in a tuner. Wanting some extra ponies, this brand new Black Sapphire M4 came to our facility to get the latest ESS E-Tronic tuner installed. Having extensive experience in tuning and supercharging BMWs, ESS created this simple pre-calibrated, plug 'n play solution that instantly adds 50-60hp & 50-60tq at the wheels! Along with the tune, this F82 also received a set of H&R lowering springs, Macht Schnell spacers, iND painted reflectors and BMW gloss black kidney grilles. The end result is a fast, sleek and aggressive M4 that's ready to play with its new found power.

Spacers & Cosmetics for an Alpine White F80

(Saturday, Apr 25 2015, 10:57AM)

This Alpine White M3 visited us on a rainy day to get some wheel spacers. Because the F80 has such wide fender flares, the OEM wheels look extremely sunken-in from the factory. To remedy the situation we installed Macht Schnell's 15mm spacers in front and 12mm spacers in the rear. This popular combination works wonders for the M3 by instantly giving it the wide, aggressive stance that everyone is after. BMW M Performance gloss black kidney grilles, gloss black side markers and a carbon fiber trunk spoiler further accentuate this sporty F80's style. Enjoy.

HRE FlowForm Wheels Installed on Supercharged E92 M3

(Saturday, Apr 25 2015, 10:57AM)

A couple years ago we installed an ESS VT2-600 supercharger system on this Space Gray M3. This week it returned to our facility for some additional power and a new set of wheels. In the time since this E92 was originally supercharged, ESS replaced the VT2-600 system with the VT2-625 system; by installing a new pulley, belt, injectors and tune, we successfully converted this older system into a VT2-625. Next, we wrapped a beautiful set of matte black HRE FF01 FlowForm wheels in some Michelin PSS tires and bolted them on for a completely new look. The exterior is adorned with BMW's carbon fiber front splitters and trunk spoiler, while an iND painted cosmetic package tidies  up all the loose ends. Still maintaining the OEM suspension, this daily driven M3 is as comfortable, fast and stylish as ever. Enjoy.

Here are a few official photos from the F8X M3 & M4 factory production line. We can't find any video of this particular car being built, but you might want like watching the F30 factory, the carbon fiber roof factory or the i3 factory. Enjoy!

Our Project M4 Competes in the European Car Tuner GP

(Saturday, Apr 25 2015, 10:57AM)

Every year we participate in the European Car Magazine Tuner GP with one of our project BMWs. Having previously competed with a supercharged E92 M3 and a supercharged E86 Z4M, this was the first year we showed up with a turbo car. With our M4 putting down 559hp and 605ft-lbs tq at the wheels, we made some changes prior to the event to help this beast handle the race track.

While lowering springs are perfect for the street, the track demands a bit more. We opted for a set of KW Clubsport 2-way adjustable coilovers, which enabled us to dial-in the optimal settings for the highly technical Streets of Willow Raceway. We then installed a front/rear Brembo GT big brake kit for better stopping power and fade-free performance. Like many of our track-going customers, we installed a set of strong and lightweight 18" Apex EC-7 wheels wrapped in the event required Continental Extreme Contact DW tires.

Just like every other year we've competed, we drove our M4 to and from the event to prove that it's a double duty street/track weapon. Our driver, Jordan Yost of Yost Autosport, piloted the F82 and put down some awesome lap times. To get all the details you'll have to wait for the European Car Tuner GP issue to hit newsstands sometime early next year, but for now you can check out these exclusive photos and video from the event. Enjoy!

M Performance Parts for a YMB F82

(Saturday, Apr 25 2015, 10:57AM)

This Yas Marina Blue M4 swung by our shop last night for some BMW M Performance parts. Like our own car, we installed the carbon fiber front splitters, ABS lower splitter and ABS side skirts to achieve an OEM+ exterior. Matching gloss black kidney grilles and side markers added the finishing touches to the exterior, while a personalization coding session unlocked several functional features for a superior driving experience. We really love how the dark M Performance pieces look against the Yas Marina Blue paint! Enjoy.

Alpine White M4 gets a Drop

(Saturday, Apr 25 2015, 10:57AM)

Almost every M owner that comes through our shop seems to agree on one thing: their car needs a drop. Such is the case with this Alpine White M4, which opted for the popular KW HAS adjustable lowering spring kit. With the ride height dialed-in we then installed a few more popular goodies, including gloss black kidney grilles, iND painted reflectors and a pair of BMC high performance air filters. Sometimes, like is the case for this F82, a car needs only a few small tweaks to be considered perfect by its owner. Enjoy.

Vorsteiner V-FF 103 Wheels Installed on GT-R

(Saturday, Apr 25 2015, 10:57AM)

Vorsteiner recently released their new Flow Forged wheel line-up and we installed one of the very first sets on this Nissan GT-R. Available in four different styles, Vorsteiner's new Flow Forged wheels are on average 25% lighter, yet substantially stronger than traditional cast construction wheels. Featuring the new Carbon Graphite finish, this set of 20" V-FF 103 wheels are 12" wide in the rear to accommodate the massive 335/30 tires.  Take a quick look at how these sharp and aggressive wheels compliment this Black GT-R.

A Stock M4 Upgrades to Akra

(Saturday, Apr 25 2015, 10:57AM)

Many of our customers have precise plans as to how they will modify their M car prior to its delivery. Such is the case with this Yas Marina Blue M4. In love with everything but the exhaust, the owner of this F82 came by to have us replace the OEM system with something better: the Akrapovic Evolution titanium exhaust system. Beautifully crafted from titanium and carbon fiber, this full exhaust saves weight, looks fantastic and instantly brings the S55 to life with its aggressive sound. Even though the rest of the car has been kept stock, this first-rate exhaust system will be more than enough to turn some heads. Enjoy.

StopTech Brakes Installed on Titanium Silver 645Ci

(Saturday, Apr 25 2015, 10:57AM)

This Titanium Silver 645Ci came to our facility for a brake upgrade. Having already been lowered on H&R coilovers and fitted with a set of 20" VMR V710 wheels, it was finally time to ditch the OEM brakes. Opting for a set of red StopTechs, we installed the 6-piston system in the front and the 4-piston system in the rear with slotted rotors all around. Not only will this new BBK offer dramatically better stopping power, but it looks absolutely fantastic on this sporty E63. Enjoy.
