My ride is an 04 M3 vert and I enjoy it all year and especially when I can get the top down. My only regret is that it can be a problem to track verts in the US. If you want to push your M on the...

I've been running VFE (Stage 1) on my E46 M3 vert for almost a year. No problems and lots of power (hang on at about 4500rpm)with 480bhp and it's still good for my daily driver. I would think about a...

I respectfully suggest you get off this forum and to a good mechanic asap.

Thanks for this. I'm just about ready to order one myself so I will check into this first. If I find out anything I will post it. Any input folks?

If your budget includes Supersprint headers (step?) I'd suggest you get SS for your entire exhaust system. It's a top quality product which, depending on your choices, will allow you to regulate the...

I'd respectfully suggest you call them. I've always found them helpful on the phone. Some things are better dealt with in person or on the phone than in the forum. And, it's faster!
Good luck, I...

Good job

You've done a great job. It looks fantastic. I wish I lived in CA, instead of cold Canada, so I could get the Volsteiner hood - great for engine heat and looks sick.
Thanks for the photos.

I agree

I agree especially consider the approx. 8 hours for installation. It's good quality but a LOT of money. I'm looking for quality alternatives. SMG presents issues here, but I think they can be...

If I had this problem I would just find a good/trustworthy BMW shop (ask around) in your area and get them to diagnose this problem and fix it asap. When these kind of things happen (which could be...

Me too

When I first got my M I too started to notice all these strange sounds. For the most part they are "normal" and as you get used to them you will probably hear or feel a few new ones. The SMG clunk...

Same boat


I think you would make good use and enjoy new headers & cats with (even) Stage I depending on your driving style. At least this was the decision in my case.

I think it was you who wisely...

From insurance to no insurance

I speak from experience. Not reporting your mods (e.g. F/I, Etc.) can allow your insurance company not to cover damages in case of an accident. You then will be personally responsible for damages...

Good news, thanks.


Thanks. This is good news.
You get lots of comments and speculation on forums, but when I get some advice from someone who has actually used the tool, this I trust.
I will order one....

Peake code reader/reset for M3s

I'm interested in a Peake Scan/Reset Tool (R5/FCX-3) which is for BMWs 2001-2006. However, I can't find out if it is also designed for the M3s.

Anyone have one of these for their M3 or know of...

When you add a S/C you "can" run many of them with the rest of the car stock.
