What Supercharger would you choose

I really dont intend on starting a flame war, tuner war, or any kind of war. I just want to see what the most popular kit out there is and why...All kits, Im sure, have their pros and cons..just want to get everyone's opinion.

EDIT: I am asking that no one bash another tuner please, just keep it friendly and if u feel like it, add in a couple words why you would pick who.

ESS @ IND for me.

I think they have installed the most of these and local support is always a plus.

Plus i personally know a few with this kit who have nothing but great things to say.

As an blown s54 owner and actually having my personal experiences, Ess rock, under the hood the kit looks amazing..... its so clean, so factory looking, i actually enjoy just looking at the setup, when you drive you the car, wow. Just like driving my z4m with a bigger engine.

if i had an m3... it would be the ess vt625 kit for SURE. everything about ess's design, driveability ticks all the right boxes with me!

Although I do not have a supercharger, I'm voting based on what I've learned here. ESS has sold the most units and I personally have not read of one single issue related directly to their kit.

I cant say that about the others.

Does VF even make a kit for the E9x? Haven't seen anything written about it on here or on the other forums?
