From what I understand, yes. And I believe you have to ship them your engine.

I feel like I should be expecting a Porn movie or something from a company called "G-Power"

(couldn't resist... they may have a great product, I don't know... its just the name that gets me)

I love my M3 and I love modifications, but the 265's at the back have a hard enough time hooking up with 295lbs/ft of torque. Even if you bump the rears up to 305, 635hp is still going to be a lot to handle.

Wow, is it really $40 grand? And have to send them the engine? Well, so much for that! Is there any other information out there? And boy, that car needs to be lowered NOW and wheels suck!

Do we know for a fact that GPower is $40 big ones? I suppose for 600+ bhp the SC kit requires some major internal engine work such a low compression pistons and do on and so forth...? Do we have any idea how much weight this adds? That may make a huge difference on the carīs dynamics.

If you want 635hp, I think you are better off just going out and buying a ZR-1. At least that car was made from the ground up to handle that kind of Juice. Even these Hamann Thunders and what have you scrape on being just a little too ridiculous, but I guess that's why only a handful are ever produced.

It's 24840,34EUR according to their pricelist, and they only install it at G-Power headquarters in Germany. No weight info, I was actually interested in their 20" wheels, but they're kinda heavy (even the 19s are heavy for 19s).

That does not sound bad actually! Problem clearly is getting the car all the way up to Germany and back. That must be at least another $10K!

For future M3 owners, you might want to consider Euro delivery if you are thinking about this . I wonder how this affects the break-in period ? I slay myself.

Well that sure would resolve the shipping issue . I'll wait until some tuner comes up with something in North America. It sure is going to be fun watching though .

Nothing on the M regarding SC, suppose I'll have to call them up.
