have you seen the vorsteiner widebody m3, the army green color? that car has the vf blower...I know for the e46 their kit wasnt that good, it would lag really bad and the car would shudder below 3k rpm...they might have stepped up their game though for the e92...maybe the e46 tune was just a little faulty.

I do not know the difference with any of them but as for looks G-Power is hands down the sexiest. As for performance I have no opinion because I just donít know.

It's likely about a 50 to 1 ratio ESS to anything else. That should suggest something positive about their product. I will also say they and IND have a very strong focus on a great customer experience!

congrats man!

i own an ess sc kit for my e46 and absolutely love it. anyone who has owned or driven an e46 knows the car runs a little rough aroudn the edges and the idle tends to be pretty unstable. with my new ess kit, that is a thing of the past. rock solid idle no matter what the temps, ac on or off, whatever. and the performance is great.

the ess kits for the e9x cars seem even more impressive, so im sure you will love it!
