G-power is claiming they have hit a new top speed record of 372 km/h. This was done by the twin supercharged E60 M5 Hurricane RR with a special body kit designed for top end aerodynamics. We don't doubt they hit this number but who was this verified by? We only have the G-power press release to go on, no GPS readout, no video, nothing. We are not saying we don't take G-power at their word, but this record needs verification. ...Published on 08-13-2010 08:12 PM

Click the link to see an edited transcript of a BimmerBoost interview with Chris Bergemann owner of HPF. As this is E46 month, we wanted to do something interesting for the E46 community. I conducted a phone interview with Chris asking questions that had been on my mind about HPF for some time. The raw interview is also posted in MP3 format if one would like to listen to it. It is about 30 minutes in length and I want to take the time now to thank Chris once again for taking the time to speak with me and answer all my questions. It was a good conversation and we went a bit over the time limit as we delved into some topics so I just want to make it clear that we appreciate Chris taking the time. ...Published on 08-09-2010 12:20 PM
Many M3 owners like to opt for 20 inch rims. I am not one of them as I feel the weight penalty is not worth it. Well, 3D Design has a new wheel which is a lightweight 20 inch option. The 20 x 10 weighs in at a mere 22 pounds making it one of the lightest wheels in the 20 inch segment. The wheel is a simple, straightforward design that is 8000 ton forged as a single piece. ...byPublished on 08-08-2010 10:32 AM
This is BMW's 8th podium finish and they have finished on the podium in every race. Unfortunately, the BMW's did not have their best race with Bill Auberlin also crashing off road at one point. The racing was very tight but the M3's just never really got going with the tire grip being an issue. A 3rd place finish leaves BMW and Ferrari tied for first place. 3 more races to go, it is going to be tight down the stretch. ...Published on 08-08-2010 10:10 AM
The race we have been waiting for. A HPF Stage 2.5 E46 M3 takes on a Gintani Stage 2+ DCT E92 M3.
Did some duns with Drew down in Mexico. Great times! Both cars on 91+Meth. Enjoy! ...Published on 08-07-2010 08:49 AM
BMW qualified 5th and 7th for the race today, August 7, at Mid-Ohio. BMW has not been very strong in qualifying but has been extremely strong in racing. The qualifying was extremely tight with the number 90 M3 being separated from the pole setter by a half second.

Bimmerboost decided to get in on the M5 renderings. With the newest spy photos we believe we have created a very accurate representation of what the M5 will look like. You will notice the wheels are the same as the newest spy photos show and our take on the vents above the fender. ...Published on 08-06-2010 05:18 AM
Rumor has it Mercedes is preparing to go after the BMW M3 Coupe with a coupe of their own. The C class coupe would share the drivetrain from the C63 sedan which would mean it would get the same 6.2 liter V8. If Mercedes shoved their new twin turbo V8 in this thing, they would instantly dominate the landscape but most likely be stepping on the toes of their more expensive AMG models which is why they won't do it. ...Published on 08-05-2010 01:10 AM
Since it is E46 month here on BimmerBoost, here are pictures of one of the sweetest E46's out there. This is HPF's personal shop car which is decked out for track duty and running an HPF Stage 3 turbo kit. This car has set some very fast lap times at various BMW events this year. Enjoy the pictures. ...Published on 08-04-2010 07:18 AM
This project was done by a user by the name of glenn-b from the UK. This is apparently his second swap. The car is also a beautiful Warsteiner racing M3 replica. The tuning was done utilizing the factory ECU. We await more details from the owner but in the mean time, bask in the awesomeness. ...Published on 08-04-2010 02:06 AM
OE tuning recently did a custom dyno tune for an X6 M. The torque gains through the curve as immense as one can see. The peak HP gain is only just over 20 hp at all 4 wheels. It appears the stock turbos seem to run out of steam up top. The torque difference is a whopping 79 pound-feet at all four wheels at under 3500 rpm. ...Published on 08-03-2010 05:44 AM
Autocar is reporting that the BMW M6 has ended production and the S85 has met its demise as a result. To be perfectly honest, Autocar hasn't had the most reliable info as of late. We also find it surprising that BMW would not do a press release for the end of the M6 and S85 production run. BMW did see fit to offer a press release to officially document that the E60 M5 ended production.
Obviously, the current generation 6 series is coming to an end with the successor to be revealed in September at the Paris Auto Show. Before we put a fork in the S85, we just want to hear it from BMW first hand, not from Autocar, who claimed there would not be a next generation M6. ...Published on 08-02-2010 07:36 AM
We will be honoring the E46 during all of August at BimmerBoost. We will be providing tuning guides specifically for the platform including forced induction guides for the S54 and M54. There will also be suspension guides as well as interviews with various E46 tuners.
We want to bolster our E46 presence and will offer bonus reputation points to members who refer E46 users. So enjoy E46 month and let us know if there is anything in particular you would like to see! ...
