Any Supercharged M3's in Aus?

Hi everyone, first post here but I've been lurking for some time. I've finally decided to go with an M3 so I'll be picking up my AW Pure Edition Sedan on Wednesday.

I plan on adding a supercharger kit at some stage in the next year or so and I was wondering if anyone else had done the same in Aus and they could share their thoughts on it and who did the install for them.

Right now the most info I've been able to find is on the ESS VT2 kit done by SouthernBM. Unfortunately I'm in QLD and they are in VIC so if they are the only option it looks like I'll be doing the install myself.

There is a Brisbane dealer for Active Autoworke but I emailed them and never heard back.

Cheers, Finn

I'll be taking the plunge on a VF620 kit shortly, really impressed with the results they've had so far and will be great to add something different to the scene!

Between the 1/4mi & 60-130 times, the VF kits are making quite the name for themselves.

Let me know if you have any questions on the VF systems, and I'll be happy to assist.

ESS is becoming the most reputable supercharging companies out on the market today. It's astonishing to see how many guys on this forum are now running ESS superchargers. If you're looking for a no hassle kit that has outstanding reliability, then I would seriously consider that ESS kit, no doubt



You can tell from the video, this thing pulls hard, even at 180mph +
