When this owner turned to European Auto Source for some aftermarket modifications, he had some interesting wishes to be fulfilled. His desire was to go from mild to wild with his BMW F80 M3, a task that it’s not too difficult to accomplish.

One can never call the new M3 as being wild, but considering its mild exhaust sound and somewhat restrained performance, the full power of this beast can be unleashed with some clever work applied.
First stop for the M3 was in the body shop where some aftermarket parts of highest quality were applied.
A carbon fiber rear diffuser was added in the rear, followed next by the iND 1×1 carbon fiber mirror caps, iND painted front reflectors, iND painted key hole cover, iND painted kidney grilles with M tri-color stripes, iND painted rear reflectors and the iND painted side markers.
Next task was to increase the sound quality and make the car more powerful. The body shop with the full Eisenmann exhaust system along with the Eisenmann catless downpipes. Featuring a black ceramic thermal coat, the full Eisenmann exhaust looks super menacing under the car, especially when paired with the aggressive Vorsteiner carbon fiber diffuser.
For the extra punch, EAS installed the popular Burger Motorsports JB4 tuner for an instant boost in power. The dyno results speak for themselves, resulting in 456hp and 467ft-lb tq at the wheels, which is an increase of 55hp and 66ft-lbs of torque – a nice upgrade overall.
Additionally, the car got a set of new wheels. These are made by Vorsteiner with their VSM-310 wheel design, a three-piece forged wheel configuration that provides an excellent look and it’s lightweight. The car is also lowered on a set of H&R Sport Springs.
