Baan Velgen. What a name. The sort you expect to see on a dutch inn which specializes in catering to homosexual porn studios. That could actually be fun.
What is somewhat surprising is that in this case the very same name stands on the frontage of a dutch car tuner who’s just released something quite appealing.
An F30 BMW 3 Series tune-up is in their future plan. The project is currently called the “Sunset” edition so that means we have no idea what they want to do.
We can make a short list of the changes that were implemented so far and then let our imagination run wild with possible later packages.
The standard roller setup was changed with Baan Velgen opting for a set of 19 inch BBS CH-R, the matte black edition. The tires were naturally changed.
Apart from the new wheelsize, there’s a different footprint in store as well with the wheels pointing for 8.5 at the front and 9.5 at the rears.
Suspension setup also gets a bit of freshening up as the Dutch tuner fitted an Eibach kit, one that comes with the obligatory lowering springs.
Apparently in Holland the roads are not only flat, they’re also speed bump free. However, when it came to changing the body, things went a little downhill.
Baal Velgen Tuning have borrowed some of the carbon fiber aerodynamic parts included in the BMW Performance package. Decent effort from the Dutch but it could have used some performance tweaks as well.
That’s especially considering how the model they’ve chosen for display is a 328i.
