Mikewads "StormShadow" Supercharged M3

My M3 went through a big transformation last week!

First on was the ESS VT1 supercharger system! The kit came in last Monday and I installed the system and had it running by Wednesday night. A few things that I really like about this system is the V-3 supercharger with its internal oiling system, a well designed intake manifold, and stout supercharger bracket. I would like to thank Roman for all of his help and answering my many questions!

Next on were the new 19 BBS CH-R wheels purchased through Greg at GT Motoring. I had them wrapped with Bridgestone Potenza RE-11s (255/35R19 on the front and 285/35R19 on the rear).

Here's a quick video and some snapshots!

Looks awesome. Are you lowered? Any rubbing in the front or rear?

Nice Mike..Good choice, ESS is fantastic.

My VT2 575 kit shipped from IND yesterday. At least 8 days to wait

Do you think you will go to the 575 kit in the future?

Cool Track on the video, who is it?
