We recently had the opportunity to completely make over this silver 2008 BMW 328i. We enhanced the classic lines of this German coupé, improved the performance of the inline six cylinder engine and suspension. In short, we found the perfect balance between luxury and performance. Not sacrificing one over the other. To enhance the looks of this E92, we wanted to retain the luxury appeal of the car. At the back of the car we installed a Carbon Fiber rear lip spoiler to improve the aerodynamics. At the front, black kindey grilles replaced the factory chrome grilles. We also restored the faded headlight to factory spec and installed LED Angel Eyes light bulbs. For curb appeal, Avarus wheels made by Savini where installed in 19″ diameter. These wheels make a visual impact that makes this 328i stand out while still keeping its refined looks. On the rear we installed H&R hub centric 20mm wheel spacers for enhanced looks, traction and stability. The Avarus wheels were shod in Bridgestone Potenza RE760 Sport tires. To finalize the looks and performance theme, the suspension was lowered with H&R Sport Springs. These springs are of a progressive design. This means that ride quality is not compromised but cornering ability is greatly improved. The Bridgestone tires provide a quiet smooth ride while still providing enhanced grip for spirited driving. These two components truly work in perfect harmony when installed on a chassis like the E92. This is why you consult an installer with over a decade of experience in the business. This why you can trust Velocity Factor.
For engine performance an AFE Power Cold Air Intake System was installed. This system is enclosed which helps in keeping the hot Florida ambient air outside where it belongs. This intake system adds 12 horsepower and 16 lbs/ft of torque to the six cylinder inline engine. Now this engine will be able breathe better in the hot summer days. At Velocity Factor we recommend installing both air intake and exhaust simultaneously. As more air is pulled in, more exhaust gases need to go out. We custom fabricated an exhaust system for this E92. This was not an off the shelf bolt on part. We took into account the owner’s preferences for looks and sound quality, we measured the car for proper fit and we road tested the system for sound quality. This is the true definition of custom-made.
In all, the owner came away impressed with the quality of the work. By being selective on which upgrades to install, we kept the original essence of this E92 and made it feel and perform like a new car.
