      It is our duty here at Bimmerboost to keep you apprised of the modifications available for your BMW. That means mods that are even, um, like this. Now you might be thinking to yourself, who would buy this? Well, probably the same members who have ladybug and butterfly decals on their car. We think a pair of lashes would just complete the look. For those interested, check out carlashes.com, although it seems the site has gone over its bandwith allotment due to the huge demand. ...

      Fresh off the victory at Road America BMW Motorsport enters the second to last race first place in the overall manufacturer standings. BMW qualifies in 3rd and 7th position for the race Sunday in Canada. The team did not have a breather at all considering they have back to back race weekends and also had less than a week to get a spare M3 up and running after the wreck to the number 92. The team worked tirelessly to put the car together and it managed to qualify in third in its first outing which is very impressive. ...

      Over the past couple of weeks on various forums, Powerchip has engaged in a smear campaign against Gintani and OE Tuning. This behavior is a violation of our vendor rules and simply will no longer be tolerated. BimmerBoost will not serve as a battleground for supporting vendors to fight amongst themselves. This fighting was largely one sided with Powerchip continually attacking the two previously mentioned vendors as well as BimmerBoost users who were former customers. We will not allow this to continue especially considering that Powerchip has failed to pay its supporting vendor fees and has exhausted BimmerBoost generosity and patience. Powerchip continued to attack other supporting vendors while stalling to pay their invoice and has abused the courtesy shown to them. ...

      MotorTrend did a very interesting comparison pitting the Mustang GT with the new 5.0 V8 vs. the venerable BMW M3. The two cars are surprisingly evenly matched. The Mustang did have the higher trap speed in the 1/4 but the elapsed times were neck and neck. Around the road course, the M3 takes the victory in yet another closely contested matchup. Price is clearly in the favor of the Mustang and Ford has done a commendable job. Ultimately, MotorTrend picks the M3 as the better car and we can not disagree, the M3 is better. However, the Mustang GT is truly impressive and a worthy oppponent. Ford has really stepped up their game. ...

Coming in second was Patrick Long who continues to be the nemesis for the BMW team in his 911 GT3 RSR. BMW should now be first overall in the manufacturer standings with only two races remaining. ...

      BimmerBoost member DLSJ5 recently did some comparison runs with some very fast cars somewhere in Mexico. The M3 is running water/meth with a Gintani Stage 2+ supercharger setup. The car is a DCT E92 M3 and dynos in the high 500 whp range. The pair of Z06's are stock, but one can see the cars are quite strong stock. The GTR's were lightly modded and posed no real threat. The eye opener is the run with the Protomotive 996 turbo running K24/20g turbos on C16 with a RWD conversion. Suffice it to say, that car is very strong. Enjoy the videos! ...
