Alex, I am aware of which one you are talking about. This is a far more comprehensive and engineered approach to radically improving the rear end performance for both street and full blown track vehicles.

Stop by anytime, or better yet a time when we are actively working on this so I can display the whole philosophy behind what is being done to the rear end.
I'll be implementing this as well.... And I expect that it will go a long way to making my vt2-625 car put power down better. MRF is a master at performance optimizing cars.

Gentlemen,

An update for the community on the progress. This "package" will be ready to go for all E9x platforms in the following 2-3 weeks with various options on Sub-Frame upgrades and reinforcement.

For now, here are a few pictures of the MRF Engineering Motorsport E9x axle carrier bushings.

haha yeah agree. And the buyer is going go get a great price! I got them in anticipation of getting KW ClubSports. But now with my spontaneous 911 purchase, my M3 is now going to be my daily driver. As a daily driver, I'm going to keep the stock ZCP suspension and I think 19's will be better for the track in that situation. The 18's with stock suspension is just not "precise" enough for my liking. That level of precision is fixed with coils but now I'm just not going there.

Mmmmm just noticed the 997.2 TTS.... Nice purchase. I sold my 997.1 C2S prior to the green machine. I hope to have a green 997.1 GT3 RS one day to go with my M3!

Same color GT3 RS and M3 would be quite something!

Time to update this thread.

Here is a brand new 2013 E92 M3. As always, it's never too soon to modify an M3. Below is a teaser shot of one of the modifications being performed. A full separate thread on this M3 will be created in the next couple of days outlining all modifications, build ideology with many pictures.

The basic idea was to create a thoroughbred M3 built for performance but remaining docile enough to be a fully compliant street driven car.

Vehicle:

2013 BMW M3 (E92 Chassis)
Melbourne Red Metallic
Black Novillo Leather
M-DCT

Modifications:

HRE Performance Wheels
KW V3 Coilovers
MRF Engineering Sub-frame bushings
ESS Tuning VT2-585 Supercharger Kit
Brembo 380MM F/R Yellow Big Brake Kit
BMW Performance Splitters
BMW Performance Spoiler
BMW Edition C/F Interior
BMW Performance Steering Wheel
Akrapovic Evolution Exhaust System
Challenge Rear Diffuser
