BMW F82 M4 And BMW E92 M3 Builds By Baan Velgen
Getting the best out of your vehicle requires some dedication, work and excellent level of expertise from a modding company. With Baan Velgen, you know your car is in good hands, where their long time expertise & dedication, allows this Rotterdam based tuning company to tackle almost any build without any issues at all! On this occasion, they undertook some lowering work on a pair of BMW’s, namely the BMW F82 M4 and BMW E92 M3 that received a nice lowering, but also a set of wheels, in the case of the latter build.
Comparing the two generation apart high-performance models from the Bavarian manufacturer, it’s easy to recognize the changes that were implemented into the newer generation of these vehicles. The naming has changed. It turned the BMW E92 M3 coupe into the BMW F82 M4, changing the naming for the Coupe and Sedan vehicles. Additionally the new M4 received a brand new engine. This 3.0l twin-turbo engine deploys 420 horsepower and affords better gas mileage, faster acceleration and a somewhat smoother power delivery.
On the other hand, the fierce sounding naturally aspirated V8 in the previous generation BMW M3 was a spectacle to behold. But, where the ecological, financial and other norms made sure the new models are powered by a forced induction engine the M3 and M4 of the newer generation are faster, more nimble and quite faster on the road, the track and other areas of high-performance driving too.
The BMW E92 M3 seen here received a set of Vorsteiner V-FF 101 wheels. These lightweight wheels offer a great solution that works well with the aformentioned model and it provides a great visual upgrade for this vehicle, further improving the already gorgeous, but somewhat older looks of this vehicle. Let’s face it, this is the previous generation M3 and it needed some botox to keep it in check!
Then, the work started on the BMW F82 M4 that received a nice lowering and some spacer. Here is what Baan Velgen added to this build: “To talk you through the proces quickly, before we show you the photos of the work and the final result, we’ll keep it simple as this is no difficult procedure at all. We removed the wheels, several coverplates and the carbonfiber stabilizer under the hood to be able work freely. Then the shocks where removed, the new H&R springs replaced the stock springs and then we put the assembly back together. We added a set of 12mm Eibach Pro spacers to bring out the wheels a little more when we put those back on. All this was done while the owner looked around in our showroom and workshop. The result is subtle but noticable, a better stance that matches the sporty lines of the car.”
