Building on what we learned from supercharging some 7 UK E46 M3 cars (including our Grey smg car also featured on these gallery pages), we decided to see how far we could take things on factory internals.
After much research, development and experimentation (most of it in - house), track testing and some stress, we are pleased and surprised by the results...a very powerful, awesome handling M3 that is just as comfortable inching along in stop - start traffic as it is blasting down a race track or drag strip.
We have improved an already good kit to make it more user friendly, reliable and powerful.
As fetured in June 2007 edition of Performance BMW magazine, Performance Tuner magazine, Evo magazine and even Max Power ( hey they asked us ok ? :-) )
Car has also been featured on Kerrang Radio a few times ! (refer to sound file on home page).
We believe that at his time this is teh most powerful street going E46 M3 in Europe ...
