E92 M3 Coupe - ESS Supercharger

I have owned my M3 Coupe DCT from new since January 2010 and covered just under 12,000 miles.

So now I have decided to add a supercharger system, and selected ESS Tuning. So to proceed I have a couple of questions;

1) I live in South Florida and as the weather is mostly hot and humid should I choose the VT2 kit as it has an intercooler?

2) Can anyone recommend a company to do the install? I do not mind having the car trailered to another state, as I prefer to use someone who has completed a few of these conversions.

Due to work load, my timeframe for the install is 3rd or 4th week of October.

IND does some good work but I see no reason you should have to ship your car so far. It's not that complicated of a job. Most performance shops should be easily able to handle it.

I would suggest the VT2-575 for your DCT car. I've installed both the VT1-535 kit and the VT2-625 kit.

Our website is www.ind-distribution.com. We just bought a new trailer and can pick your M3 up in FL and install the ESS kit at IND by BMW techs.
