Anyone supercharge in Chicago area?

I am looking to upgrade from the 335 to M3 soon, and one of the options I am looking into is dropping in a supercharger (likely ESS). Has anyone done this in the area and which shop did you go with?

I have used VS (now closed) and A&L/IND, but I am looking for a shop that has installed ESS before if possible.

Thanks in advance.

Brad from VS Motorsports went to A-Spec Tuning and he can do it for you. Also you can talk to IND as well

To my knowledge, IND has installed plenty of ESS s/c, I bought mine from them!

I thought that the incredible Atlantis Blue build was a different SC, but it turns out it was also an ESS.

Thanks for the reassurance. I have been to A&L repeatedly with my 335, and will return again.

IND does an ESS install every week it seems... I am sure you would be fine there. Every car that rolls out of there has some ESS kit on it. I have also heard Brad from VS is very good at these as well...

Sounds like this is where I will be coming (not getting a new car until I am settled in to new house). If SC was not an option, I would realistically look for a C63 or the next gen M3 (need more torque).
