Wow...what a fail. Looks like a ghetto version of G-Power with an exhaust made by Pepe at the local Firestone. However, the V8 sticker is Hot! I wonder what spray paint he used to paint the G-Power Intake Manifold...LOL.

Wow they basically took a GPower kit, resprayed it, add a crappy looking exhaust, race seats and steering wheel and are trying to market it as a new kit? EPIC FAIL

"Exclusive" LED wheel. Exclusive to who? Anyone that can walk into a BMW dealership?

And please explain how the same exhaust, same diameter, gains 8hp switching from SS to Ti?

And yes, clean your car. It's cool if it's a race car and still dirty from the 24hrs LeMans, not cool if you're just too lazy to clean the bugs off from your commute.

It COULD happen (but not likely) but it COULD happen, right?

it says gpower on it...and isnt gpowers owner the owner of asa?

the "M3 V8" sticker comes with the titanium exhaust (hence the price difference) and brings up the additional 8hp... V 8 guys, it says right there!!!
if it is indeed just a re-use of other brand parts, then yeah it's a fail...

Pat

PS: went back through the pics, it looks good at first glance but definitely fails as soon as you pay little attention to details...
and it clearly says G-Power on the cover...
hey i have an idea guys... i'm going to produce a 414hp V8 car, in coupe, cabrio, and sedan version... see where i am going

This HAS to be a joke Why would you release pics of this if you are selling this product ??? It looks like ass and is clearly other products already available with new badging. It's like they're not even trying. You clearly see GPOWER through the black paint. Either this is an f'ing Joke or the MANHART guys are f'ing retards....

or the guy Manhart (apparently a well-known person in the racing world) just sold the rights to use his name to some retards without checking on what they're actually doing with it !!

they are offering /distributing G-Power engine upgrades on their site as well

http://manhart-racing.de/blog/?p=500


I guess they just implement G-Power products in their tuning programs just like others choose certain brands for the wheels on their individualized cars

so they are not exactly "designers" but "dressers"

So this is the same thing that many other companies do, but this one is a bit more heated, perhaps due to lack of "proper disclosure"...

What I mean is, Dinan uses Brembo brakes, Koni or JRZ suspension, Conforti software, Fikse/Champion wheels ALL badged as their own.... why is this different? Disclosure and a shitty presentation???
