First US BMW M3 got tuned

While we didn’t know it at the time, it seems that the very first unit of the new BMW M3 that arrived on US soil was destined for tuning.

Coming out of the tuners hands, the car can now produce a respectable 580 Hp.

And when I say respectable, I might be underplaying it a bit. While the stock 3.0 liter twin turbo engine is capable of delivering plenty of thrills with 425 Hp, the engine retune really turned it up a notch. Managing the extra power are a new set of springs from H&R, and Brembo brakes, while some MORR wheels were also added.

It’s almost perfect that the first BMW M3 to get to US got tuned, as this follows closely to the tendency of BMW tuners to go for the BMW M3, regardless of generation. This speaks volumes about the car itself and the legacy it managed to set. Unfortunately, more details are not yet available, but you can enjoy some nice photos of the car.
