BMW today announced a new M Performance exhaust system specifically designed as an accessory for the BMW M3 Coupe, Sedan and Convertible. With the racetrack and the street in mind, this new exhaust system is crafted from an extremely heat-resistant and lightweight chrome-nickel alloy called Inconel®. This flow optimized exhaust system reduces exhaust backpressure and allows the M3’s 414 horsepower V8 engine to produce an even more powerful sound.

Inconel’s unique qualities allowed engineers to reduce the thickness of the tubing from 1.5mm to 0.8mm. This resulted … CONTINUED

Here is an updated comparison of the now officially released C63 AMG facelift photos versus the E90 M3 sedan.

Unlike the CLS 63 AMG, the C63 AMG is still powered by the naturally aspirated 6.2 l V8, rated at 451hp and 443 lb-ft in the C63. Most significant changes are the switch from the traditional 7-speed auto to the AMG-MCT7 and the introduction of a Start/Stop feature. It’s uncertain however if the latter will make it to the US.

Better be fast if you consider the E90 M3 … CONTINUED

Forced induction is everywhere it seems. From BMWs standpoint, those turbos go a long way to reducing fuel consumption while keeping the power right where we want it, so its a no brainer for them. But as we all know, the aftermarket gives a damn about efficiency and the use of turbos is meant for one thing only. POWER.

Manhart’s BITURBO monster setup is the same as we’ve seen published previously here and here and here and here. The difference here is that its now been driven … CONTINUED
