Congratulations on your new BMW G80 M3 or G82 M4! These high-performance vehicles are a perfect canvas for customization and personalization. Today, we will explore some of the top modifications you can consider to enhance your driving experience and make your BMW truly unique.

Performance Upgrades

Unlock the true potential of your BMW by upgrading its performance. Start with an ECU (Engine Control Unit) tune or a plug-and-play module to increase horsepower and torque, optimizing your car's performance characteristics. There are currently two options to tune your BMW G80 or G82. The first being JB4. The JB4 Tuning Module is a remarkably easy way to unleash performance that's in the car. This plug’n’play tuning box takes everything negative you hear about piggy-back boxes and does away with it. The second option requires a larger commitment, but yields a higher performance. This method is unlocking the ECU and getting a flash tune by MHD or BM3. This requires you to remove your ECU and ship it in to have it unlocked. Message us at for assistance with this process.

Suspension and Stance

Cars these days come from factory with the worst fitment and ride height. To fix this, enhance your ride height and handling with suspension upgrades. The most popular upgrade is to add a height adjustable spring kit such as the KW HAS Kit. This kit allows you to adjust your ride height for a more desirable fitment. Coilover kits are more advanced and allow for adjustable ride height and damping, giving you the flexibility to fine-tune the car's stance and improve cornering capabilities. Also look into upgrading your sway bars and strut braces to enhance stability and reduce body roll.

Aesthetic Modifications

Give your BMW a unique and head-turning appearance with various aesthetic modifications. Consider adding carbon fiber exterior accents such as front grille, front lips, side skirts, rear diffusers, or spoilers for a sportier and more aggressive look. In addition, upgrading to aftermarket wheels not only enhances the visual appeal but also allows for better tire fitment and improved performance.

Interior Customization

Transform the interior of your BMW into a personalized space that reflects your style. Upgrade the steering wheel with a sportier design and premium materials for better grip and a more engaging driving experience. Also consider adding aluminum pedals, or carbon fiber trim pieces to give your interior a sportier feel.

Lighting Upgrades

One of our favorite upgrades to differentiate your BMW from the rest are our CSL Style Yellow DRL. This changes the front end of your G80 M3 or G82 M4 by giving them a GT race care style. These also work with BMW's welcome sequence and will bring even more attention to your ride!

Aftermarket Downpipes

The BMW G80 M3 is a high-performance sedan, but for those seeking to enhance its capabilities, installing a downpipe is a popular modification. A downpipe replaces the stock catalytic converter and exhaust piping, offering several benefits. Firstly, it increases horsepower and torque output, resulting in significant performance gains. Additionally, throttle response is improved, providing a more engaging driving experience. The downpipe also gives the G80 M3 a more aggressive exhaust sound, adding to its sporty appeal. Furthermore, the weight reduction achieved with a downpipe improves fuel economy and handling, enhancing overall performance. Lastly, a downpipe is often a prerequisite for future modifications, making it a smart choice for those planning additional upgrades. To ensure a proper and safe installation, consulting with a professional tuning shop is recommended. Transform your BMW G80 M3 and take its performance to new heights with a quality downpipe upgrade.
