2013 Mineral White M3 Gets a Supercharger and then some

When it comes to modding a car, you either install one modification at a time or you do it all at once.

This brand new stock 2013 Mineral White E92 came to us for the complete package. By the time we were finished with it this M3 was fitted with an 625hp supercharger system, bypass track pipes, a modified muffler, matte black exhaust tips, carbon fiber exterior pieces, a new steering wheel set-up and a set of 18" wheels. The finished result is a super clean, super fast and super loud M3 that retains its OEM daily-drivability and comfort.



Modifications
APEX ARC-8 Wheels (18"x9.5" ET22 Front, 18"x10.5" ET27 Rear)
BMW Edition Kidney Grilles and Fender Gills
BMW Carbon Fiber Mirror Caps
BMW Performance Carbon Fiber Trunk Spoiler
BMW Performance Steering Wheel
BMWPedals Extended Billet DCT Shifter Paddles
EAS 80mm Stainless Steel Exhaust Tips (Black Thermal Coat)
EAS OEM Exhaust Mod
ESS VT2-625 Supercharger System
AWRON DGA Gauge
IND Gloss Black Hood Vents
IND Painted Reflectors
Macht Schnell Bypass Track Pipes
Vorsteiner Carbon Fiber Rear Diffuser

Here are a few shots from the install







And a quick photo shoot



















Some of you might remember this car at the dyno day last month with the highest numbers of the day

That's the Kompressor I display from Awron, here's a quick video overview of the unit.



There's tons of data at your fingertips.

what an epic gauge, very nice!

I LOVE the fact that this guy left the OEM zcp suspension on. it really is a fantastic setup, and if he ever needs to dial in some slightly better grip / handling on the track, a good set of tires and camber plates is all he would need

wonderful car

The center vent lcoation is standard, even on RHD models.

Moving the gauge to the corner would be a blind spot, partially obscured by the steering wheel, depending on seat position.

Once you've interacted a bit with the gauge on daily driving - it just feels right. Just like OEM.
