Many here would recommend you keep the e93 stock. If you want to supercharge an M3, ditch the vert and go with e92 or e90. But it's your $$ so if you want a supercharger on your e93, go for it. Lots of options.

I have a e93 and bought a ess625. I wanted more power and still drop top whenever i wanted. I will never track my car so did not care to buy a coupe. Before I got a sc kit, I went with a tune, pulley, exhaust/xpipe, and filter route. I definitely notice an increase in hp but was not worth the money I spent. If I were to do it all over again i would have just bought a sc from the start.

Sorry to hear man... it's not the only AA with a motor blown (search the forums).

I'm glad I went with ESS. They have sold more kits than any other company. And they have had zero e9x's give out on them. I've got 10k miles on mine and it's purring along.

I hope AA makes good on it and takes care of you.

We did not say this the 3rd party master technicians for a major car company did. We have a full report of their finding and so do you. Please stop the Lies.

Its unfortunate that you blew the motor racing and we sympathize with you we really do but coming back months later after you agreed to the findings of a third party to make us look bad is just not right.

Btw you new Aston Martin S is beautiful
