The Florida-based PSI purchased the new BMW M3 and BMW M4, and put them together in the shop for some tuning.

When the BMW F80 M3 and BMW F82 M4 came out, many tuners were certain they would be great models when it comes to modding. One of them is Precision Sport Industries known for their aftermarket customization on a variety of BMW cars.

The Florida-based PSI purchased the new M3 and M4, and put them together in the shop for some tuning.

The photoshoot below shows a stunning Austin Yellow M3 and a gorgeous Sakhir Orange M4 – two exterior finishes which are considered by many as some of the best color options for the new M brothers. “While the team here at PSI knew well in advance that our M4 Club Sport project was bound for SEMA and beyond, through several drastic evolutions, our friend Joe started with an entirely different car, and then continued on his own path,” says PSI.

“While there are a few basic similarities between our two approaches – mostly in that they are both the current F8x platform – in some ways you couldn’t ask for a greater contradiction. At their core, one is a yellow four-door M3 with manual transmission, and one is an orange two-door M4 with DCT. Night and day comes to mind,” PSI representatives told us.

Here is the full list of modifications done to the M3 and M4:
