I currently own 2012 M3 Coupe and I am looking to install a ESS 625bhp Super Charger. The problem I have been having is finding someone in Germany willing to install this. I did not think that this would have been so hard, but very few technicians are willing to do this. Any help that anyone could provide would be greatly appreciated.

If you are willing to get your hands dirty, its not a hard install.

I'm looking at buying an M3 with an ESS Tuning 535hp kit installed already. I only know the basics about cars and have been doing a lot of research on ESS Tuning. Car only has 32k miles on it.

Honest opinion and advice, do I need to be a car expert to own an M3 with a supercharger? I know it voids BMW's warranty so how is everyone else's M3 reliability wise with an ESS tuning kit installed?

When something needs work does everyone work on it themselves, or take it to a third party?
