My Ride: 2006 m3 convertable
HPFMTRE whats up! I really want to hear more about your ride!

Who put the kit in for you?

Does the car burn alot more gas?

Have you had any problems with it?

Did you change your clutch and exhaust?

What are your quatermile times?

Once everything was put in what was your total cost?

I was going to buy another fox body convertable stange, but i deccided I want to kick ass in my convertable M3.

Tell me all your pros and cons so far. I think Im deffinitely going to do it I just want to hear how yours has been. I just dont like the fact that HPF just have a 1 year warranty, I have to go with a company that has a 3 year warranty on the parts. Is yours a daily driver? For the next Six months I wanna know everything! Have a great weekend friend! Mike

Does the car burn alot more gas? yes it burns more gas but when your just driving normal really isnt that bad and sometimes even better than before on HWY

Have you had any problems with it?not really any problems,had one with the ECU shipped it back to HPF and within 2-3 days it was back in my car

Did you change your clutch and exhaust? HPF stage 1 clutch and Agency power exhaust

What are your quatermile times?havent done one yet but "evil twin rob" is the king of that so far

Once everything was put in what was your total cost? $23,000 let me tell you its worth it..not many companies are like HPF and have such amazing qaulity on their products..wouldnt go with any other company after ive had HPF awesome ppl as well!

I was going to buy another fox body convertable stange, but i deccided I want to kick ass in my convertable M3.

mine is a daily driver 60,000 miles on it and still runs strong as ever...im actually heading off soon for a couple races and will have some videos up tonight! i would say the only CON is the price but once you turn that race switch you dont think of anything else but how insanly fast the car is PROS are quality of the kit and how clean and perfect it fits...the power it produces..the drivability,a car with 760bhp seriously feels stock till you hit the gas! and HPF is just one of the best companies ive ever worked with always put you first and always make sure everything is perfect.

any other questions i will be happy to answer

GREAT! THANKS I cant wait to hear about your races!!!!!!!! Did you take it down the quarter mile yet? Being that I had to have a convertible I will settle for a slightly slower 0-60 time but I want 116 mph trap speed through the quarter! Im thinking about starting to buy some of the parts now so it wont shock me all at once! HAVE FUN AND BE SAFE!

My Ride: 2004 M3
I ran the 1/4 mile in 11.41 @ 131mph. My best trap speed was 133mph. I was running Nitto DOT drag radials. This was my first and only trip to the track so far. I believe with a little practice on the launch, these cars are capable of 10's.

The car is my daily driver also, and until you ride in one you just cant describe the drivability and power. I love the fact that you can actually drive the car "out of boost" so easily, but when you stomp it hell unleashes!
i have yet to make a trip to the track but i dont have any trouble with any car i have met on the way to work.
