Project and writeup by PSI.
Project Fire: Version Two. In the heart of every M3 enthusiast is the desire to own a “special” M3, one that illustrates their love for everything BMW but also with their own unique flair and individualization. On Project Fire: Version Two, we made the car into a close GTS replica, with an edge.
Once we acquired the OEM M3 GTS wing, we knew the direction of the project’s new version. The AE Performance Bar in Fire Orange and RECARO SPG XLs were next, mounted using the OEM sliders and mounting positions. The Shift knob was exchanged for the Macht Schnell Nylon edition with an Active Autowerke SSK as well.
Next, an OEM European bumper and the IND Sport Evo lip were added … CONTINUED
Via G-Power: Sometimes less is even more. For example in regards of a car’s weight. Because less weight improves the performance of the BMW M3 and so provides more driving pleasure. With the G-POWER aerodynamic program “RS”, which is completely fabricated from Carbon fibre, one can make the BMW M3 lighter and therefore faster. At the same time the G-POWER “RS” Carbon parts increases the aerodynamic downforce and thus provides for even faster cornering speeds.
G-POWER’s roots have their origin in motorsports. Already in the early eighties G-POWER tuned BMW 02 models were competing for top position in their category. Today G-POWER is still active in motorsports and competing in series like the Spezial-Tourenwagen-Trophy (STT) and the DMV Touring Car Championship (DMV TCC).
The G-POWER aerodynamic … CONTINUED
Very nice action photoshoot featuring a F30 3 Series M Sport and Mineral White E92 M3 Coupe.
We revisit some archived exploded view photos of the marvelous S65 V8 engine from the E90/E92/E93 M3.
Check out this most unique looking BMW E92 M3 Individual in Speed Yellow. In the owner’s words:
Previously I had a Jerez Black E92 M3 ZCP with pretty much every option except rear window shade. I loved that car! I drove the tires off of her! (Almost literally — when I put the OEM Contis back onto the wheels, I realized my AD08s were horribly corded, and I mean get-out-your-oils-and-paint-on-the-canvas corded.)
Then I decided to trade her for a new M3. (Why? Why. Okay, moving on….)
I wasn’t quite settled on the color, but I wanted something different this time.
It was going to be between yellow and blue, but I wasn’t sure which. I spent hours weighing them all. Of the blues, I love Laguna Seca … CONTINUED
Active Autowerke teases its Gen 2 L3 Supercharger kit.
The expected power figures should top 700hp from the new supercharger unit, meth injection system, and performance exhaust system.
How much would you pay for a custom E92 M3 transplanted with a S85 V10 engine from the E60 M5, with the transplant, tuning, and custom bodywork all by Brabham Racing? Would you pay $199,000? Some owner is hoping there is a taker at this price.
A M3POST member is maintaining a journal documenting the strip down and build up of his dedicated M3 track car.
The base car is a Space Gray 2007 E92 M3 Coupe with 6 speed manual. The plans include:
KW Competition 3 axes
Full light weight reduction
Full Akrapovic exhaust system
Sparco carbone seat Evo and Prodrive
VAC seat fixations system
BBS RC301 10×18 ET25 wheels all around
265/35 and 285/30 x18 Michelin Pilot Sport Cup tires
Super B lithium batterie B15
We’d like to wish the entire BIMMERPOST community a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
Here’s to a happy, safe, and prosperous 2013 for everyone. And of course… happy driving!
