2008 E90 M3 ESS VT2-575 Supercharger, Corsa exhaust

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Car doesn't have any visible modifications. Is set for "go", not for "show" however one day I may buy different wheels.

It is a gift from my lovely wife, so I didn't choose anything - options, color etc. However I added supercharger ESS VT2-575, Corsa exhaust and short shifter, mods done by GMP Performance in Charlotte, NC. Car was checked in Pro-Dyno in Fort Mill, SC. We've got 511 HP at the wheels on 4th gear, so engine has 511/0.85=601 HP. This number looks better then any wheels, carbon lips,hoods or wings.

I have some videos on YT, with Polish comments. All my channel is in Polish. This is my car before modifications:



I went to 1/4 mile track i Darlington, SC for a session, which ended up with burnt clutch and flywheel. But I had a lot of fun. Even I had huge problem with traction, I record 12,3 s at 115 mph and 0-60 mph in 4,1 s (0-100 kph in 4,3s). Better driver and better tires/surface and those times should be lower by couple of tenths.

Video from Darlington:



And the "sound of music":

Thanks, guys. That's how I like the car: More "go" then "show".

A movie from dyno. It is Pro Dyno shop in Fort Mill, SC. http://www.pro-dyno.net/



Very friendly, nice folks and Dan is a legend among Mustang owners. He had once M3, sold it to buy a dyno and he was really impressed with reading of my car.
