Who wants a VF SUPERCHARGER?

Hey guys,
I want to get a scope of who has/wants a VF supercharger on their BMW. We carry all of their kits at crazy prices.

Share your experience with the VF S/C and how interested you are! Then maybe PM me and I will give you a steal price

It's called being stealth enough to pass the visual inspection and with a good enough tune to provide power and pass the SMOG tests. That is why most consider the ESS Twinscrew kit - plus the fit and finish and the tune is much better the VF kit. I got one for sale and I'm local in the Bay Area.

Why? It seems VF570 kit is really promising - both pricing and quality is pretty good. The only alternative I see is ESS vt-2 575 who (ESS) is more popular in my region.

The MaxPSI turbokit is what you need to be buying...not VF crap.

I always thought the hardware on the vf kits was on point and the tune was the issue maybe buy the supercharger and get active or someone else to custom tune it ????

Kenton, once again you took the sentence right out of my mouth...

Not bashing VF at all cause i was fortunate enough not to ever own any of there products and go through what alot of folks here have but just comparing new prices and customer service for products and MaxPSI recently released kit is complete.

only issue here now is there on the east coast and probably have no Authorized install shops on the west yet. need to ask them that.
