Car Tuner Shops Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont?

Out of these 3 states do they have BMW shops equivalent to Horsepower Freaks or EAS? If so please throw me some names as my M3 was shipped out early this week and gets there on Monday. I have more coding I want done.

Leaving Thursday evening via SUV. Cant wait for the long drive.


Thanks..

Closest big name tuner shop to Maine is Turner Motorsports in Amesbury, MA. You have to go through NH to get there, but NH is only about 20 miles wide at that end and Turner is only about 15 minutes over the border.

Closest parts shop is Bavarian Autosport in Portsmouth, NH, right over the border from Maine, but it just sells parts and does not service.

Bren at Brentuning in Boston, MA can also do tuning and coding.

Good luck.

Thanks.. I used a BMW dealer out of Portland for some things last week. This town has no new M3s but again its an older community. BMW scene is dead here in Maine. Oh well only 1 year and 8 months then back to California.

I saw you got a new M3, very nice. Congrats! Now hurry up and put those Volks on with some fat tires. Love that bumper. Roads here suck too. X5ing it all over now.

Very small chance of seeing an M, if your north of Freeport area.

Take route 1 up the coast, roads are decent.

Take the X5 to Sugarloaf this winter and enjoy the snow while your in Maine!!

There are some roads in NH worth driving before you go back to Ca., head up to N. Conway, Kangamangus Hwy.

Thanks for the info. I saw a M3 today as I was driving to Bangor. I saw it out of the corner of my eye and noticed it was stock with older yellow halo lights. Not sure if he saw me. I also saw a stock silver E93 M3 at Dennys in Ellsworth today.
