Mode Carbon offers front splitter for BMW M4 and M3

More parts are trickling in from aftermarket specialists for the new BMW M3 and M4, and the last one to join in is Mode Carbon.

While their offer is not that impressive, Mode Carbon did a good job with what they offer.

What is that, exactly? Well, it seems that the tuner, like many BMW enthusiasts out there, think that the original look of the M3 and M4 is quite good by itself, so not much alteration is needed. Thus they only came out with a simple front splitter that give that extra edge without the risk of damaging the look.

First BMW M3 to hit US got tuned

I have always stated that the BMW M3 (all generations) and now the BMW M4 are the best platform for tuners to work on.

And to prove my point, the first ever new generation BMW M3 that was sold in the US market already saw some upgrading done to it.

In stock form, the BMW M3 is good for about 425 Hp, which come from a 3.0 liter twin turbo engine. Those are some good numbers, worthy of a BMW M3, but not everybody seems to be happy with just that. So then the owner decided it was time to fiddle with performance.

E92 BMW M3 by Vilner

If I ever were to have the money to upgrade my car’s interior, I would definitely try to go to Vilner for the job, and looking at this E92 BMW M3, you can understand why.

Like all of their interior upgrades, this one is just as good and tasteful as you have come to expect.

Again, like many times before, the materials of choice were Nappa leather and alcantara, both high grade materials. These can be found in the re-upholstered seats which were stitched using blue thread for that extra touch. They even went ahead and embroidered the M Division logo in the headrests.

E93 BMW M3 convertible by Liberty Walk

There are a lot of BMW M3 tunes out there, both modifying performance and altering appearance.

Of them all, the E9x builds have to be the most, and if we were to judge by this particular build, you understand why.

People just love the BMW M3, and they also love altering it to better suit their fantasy. When we talk about visual changes, Liberty Walk, a Japanese tuner, has managed to make quite a name for itself. Most of their body kits manage to bring out the inner beast, giving cars that extra aggressive look.

E90 BMW M3 tuned to 820 Hp

If you thought you had seen it all when it comes to tuning the older E90 BMW M3, then you need to watch this particular beast tear it up on a stretch of road.

The video we are going to show at the bottom catches the Bimmer doing a solo drag in order to flaunt the power it can produce.

And it has a lot of it, if we are to believe the numbers we were given. It seems that the E90 BMW M3 was brought up to 820 Hp, a number rather rare even on supercars. How this power is produced, we have no idea, as details on what’s going on underneath were not released.

Prodrive gives us their take on an E92 BMW M3

With the BMW M4 here, chances are that we will see less and less aftermarket builds for the E92 BMW M3, and there are a lot of fans out there that find this aggravating.

But before tuners shift their attention to the new guy on the block, there is still something left for the outgoing model.

While not being the first aftermarket company to pay their respects to the E92 BMW M3, Prodrive did do their best to make it shine. In my honest opinion, I believe that there still was room for improvement, as the build is kind of basic. Being a strictly cosmetic alteration, you get the basic elements you would expect.

G-Power presents 650 Hp BMW M3 GTS and CRT

As much as we love the new BMW M3 and the M4 newcomer, there is one thing that still makes a few enthusiasts bad mouth the models.

I am talking about the engine, or more particular, the sound it produces.

In many opinions the previous generation, with its naturally aspirated engine, just gave off a far more pleasing purr when you drove it. Of these, two particular special editions were kings of the hill: the GTS and CRT versions. While the GTS was more track oriented, the CRT put more value on luxury, and both were fierce beasts.

Precision Sport Industries E46 BMW M3

With so many BMW M3 tuning projects out there, it would be hard to point one out and say “this is the best one”.

Fact is, there are plenty out there that do a splendid job of either boosting performance or upgrading appearance, or even both.

This E46 BMW M3 does rather well on the performance front, with the visuals receiving only a bit fiddling. Apart from new Volk wheels and Bilstein lowering springs, nothing really gives it away. But turn the engine on, and you will find out that actually a lot of work went into the build.

BMW M3 sound battle

There is a common practice among tuners called sound offs. This basically means you dust off your tuner car which has an aftermarket exhaust and see if it sounds better than another.

All in all, this isn’t that much of competition, as apart from decibels, you can’t really establish any rules, and more noise doesn’t always mean better.

Also most of the times, these battles take place with the vehicles stationary, and that isn’t really the way to go if you want to see how nice an engine purrs. Still, for a couple of minutes, you can have a bit of fun with it. Especially if you just completed a nice day at the track.
