\ VF-Engineering: E92 M3 VF540 supercharger build /

One of our customers came across this section of the forum that inspired him to buy this new 2013 E92 M3 just to supercharge. He is an avid car enthusiast and famous musician with a stable of cars including an R8 v8, R8 v10, and a GT3 Cup Car, etc. He asked us to post his car and the build in this forum for him.

2013 AW E92 M3








Baseline and teardown up next...
Stay tuned.

Im very happy you guys are finally taking an acitve role in the forum. it seems many members are not familiar with vf line of products and seem to be blind sided by ESS fan boys who speak with out thinking. I had many members email me and inquire about my vf experience so far. Half of them noted that many ESS fans messages them with fictious information about vf superchargers and customer care. Let's expose vf to the rest of us for what you really stand for and not what others assume.

Glad you're enjoying your VF540. Your VF620 upgrade is only going to bring you more smiles!

Can't wait to see everything all done!

Any idea what the owner is considering for wheels?
And why not a 620 kit? Money is obviously not a restricting factor for this client, and he seems to be headed in the all-out direction anyways.

Owner wants to keep this a sleeper. Stock wheels, stock exterior. Straight street sweeper

I'm sure it will take a him less than a month to upgrade.

Here's a few more pics to hold you guys over for now:



This isn't the same car, but it will probably end up looking like this one day

Not bad at all. The 540/550 kit is more then enough for street driving.

That's funny, I've had a few members on this forum PM me regarding VF's customer experience. I don't care since I wouldn't run their product. I'm not a "ESS fan boy" either. It's good to hear that you haven't had any issues with VF but I know a few members of this forum have recently and it's a shame they don't speak up. At the end of the day, A company should stand by their product. If they did, no one would have anything negative to say.



Random PM I got last week:

ridiculous business practices bro, just ridiculous...

I didn't experience it, many people I know have. Ever since I posted that, I even had current VF customers PM'ing me telling me about their experience.

I have people blowing up my PM box asking me to tell them what I know. It's common knowledge, it just isn't spoke about on a internet forum. Just use Google.

Maybe VF should help out their current customers who are running their kit and have faced some difficulties. Hey, I know every company isn't perfect but leaving your customers out in the dry..... I don't know how much longer that will work before people start loosing their cool and posting about it online.

I appreciate that Robert has reached out to me by sending me a message trying to find out what my issue was with VF but I think he should focus on his current customer's headaches rather then getting new business.
