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.

EAS tuned E92 BMW M3

Every time I see a picture of a Bimmer parked just outside the workshop of EAS, I just can’t help but feel a bit excited.

And with the guys from EAS, the new upgrades installed are not always immediately apparent, just like this Santorini Blue E92 BMW M3.

From a first look, not much seems to be out of place with the M3, unless you look at the back, where EAS propped a massive wing to generate downforce. But why generate it, you say? Well, for that answer we would have to pop open the hood and see the goodies installed inside.

BMW M3 gets tuned by Vorsteiner

The E92 BMW M3 is not the newest in the range but is certainly a beloved model between the BMW enthusiasts. That’s probably why Vorsteiner, a well-known German tuner, decided to offer the GTRS3 wide bodykit for the previous-gen M3.

At the exterior, the Germans offer a blue finish with revised bumpers, side skirts and rear diffuser. You will also notice the carbon fiber spoiler lip, front fenders and carbon side mirror caps.

Last but not least, the rear stands out thanks to the boot lip while the widened wheel arches hide the new massive alloy wheels.

E92/E93 BMW M3 gets RKP diffuser

Whatever your tuning project is, if you think about adding a diffuser, then you are not wrong for a few reasons.

And if you are going down that road, you might as well grab one from RKP, who do a decent job of it.

E90 BMW M3 sporting a lot of carbon fiber

When carbon fiber first came to the automotive industry, it was quite a rare material, but its qualities quickly became obvious.

Its main feature, the strength to weight ration, is far better than steel or other materials used at the time, with the only drawback being the high cost.

Nowadays, carbon fiber is not so uncommon anymore, and with advances made in the field by manufacturers like BMW, the price is quickly dropping. BMW even proved that you can successfully use the CFRP composite to create a full passenger hub. In a few years, it will be possible to build vehicles almost completely out of carbon fiber.
