One letter and one number always a very special vehicle from Germany, iconic M3.
The M3 version of the F30 3 series was designated the F80 and was produced from 2014—2018. The F80 M3 was powered by the BMW S55 twin-turbo straight-six engine, therefore being the first turbocharged M3 model. Despite the smaller displacement than the V8 engine used by the previous generation, peak power was increased by 8 kW (11 bhp) and peak torque was increased by 150 N⋅m (111 lb⋅ft).
The official 0–60 mph (0–97 km/h) times were 3.9 seconds with the M-DCT transmission and 4.1 seconds with the manual transmission. Top speed is limited to 155 mph (249 km/h) but an optional M Driver’s package raises this to 174 mph (280 km/h).
Here at Tuning Emporium, we’ve had to continuely invest in new equipment so we can keep up to date with new models that can be tuned, both through the OBD port and on the bench.
With this partiuclar car, the customer wanted a nice power increase but too mad, so we settled on a bespoke stage 1 remap through the OBD port.
Power gains as follows:
standard tune is 424bhp and 406lb ft.
we safely increased this to 495bhp and 485lb ft.
Any more than that and the turbo’s won’t last very long, hybrid upgrade the only solution here.
Transformation is stunning, the car is so much eager to get going, and gear changes are improved from the increased torque.
