:crackup:thought you would say that, for 10k fitted the 650 kit looks a good option, no internals needed and on a stock box:D
Not a bad price really Dave my only concern would be traction 500 is a lot of poke RWD only :eek:
But you only live once

Waste of money. What the traders don't tell is the issues they have.

Everyone who charges, rips them off soon afterwards.

Get an exhaust and remap. 460-470 BHP reliable though :smthumbup

Please don't do it.

The DCT box has a torque limiter on it, and not by-passable. you can have all the bhp in the world, but without torque, its not very useable.

The issues are not well publicised.

Also have a look at uk car 1/4 mile times. Very poor considering power to weight IMO.

I just think you will regret it.

The supercharged BMW's Simpson Motorsport did many moons ago we're great. Went in Tony's Z4 too and that was great. Give Anthony or Julian a call and see what they say. :)

Last time I was up at Simpsons, they were rebuilding a top end on a supercharged e92 m3.

You bitter man! :smthumbup

In fairness that could be for any reason, just sharing my personal experience of the Supercharged Beemers, although it is very limted in reality! :)

I know Si.

They do go well, but I think you have to have deep pockets to keep them going well.

They may well be über reliable, and for a road car might be A1, but I've seen lots who have them fitted and their car then becomes a continual life project.
And for me that takes away what the m3 is about.
They're all about the chassis, we had a lovely v8 saloon m3 in yesterday. Delightful drive, and for me the supercharger would spoil the balance between chassis and engine.

30-130 no doubt it will be quicker on a dry day.

It's like the Merc AMG, a guy slapped a supercharger on a c63 amg, against advice. He's now got a car that is only useful above 60mph as it is too much.
Factor in our sheite roads and I think it's a step too far.

Ant and Julian know their stuff no doubt, but being honest they will likely advise against it.

I will be taking it to the 30-130 if it goes ahead this year:D

N/A engines?? you don't get too much bang for your buck.

I suppose I just miss forced induction:crackup:
