    ***RIGHT PLACE... WRONG SIDE OF DASHBOARD***

    Click here to enlarge

    There won’t be a cute lead-in to this one… Other than that positively brilliant title of course.

    No, this post exists to accomplish only one purpose – to properly track the progress of one of
    The most rare and extensive builds we have ever taken part in.

    Over the coming months, we’ll be documenting a full-scale project, the likes of which most of
    You have probably never seen. It will require well-planned custom fabrication, copious dyno
    Testing, and hours of fine tuning in order to ensure the level of quality and finish that our
    Customers have grown accustomed to. Active Autowerke is on the brink of beginning a
    Journey to rival anything Tolkein, Martin, or Rowling could possibly dream up. And you won’t
    Believe where it will take us.

    Of course, like any good story, this one requires a bit of a prologue…

    What you see before you is a 1999 UK-market E36 M3. The “real” M3 with over 300 base horsepower.
    The “real” M3 with itbs, high-performance head, lighter crankshaft, and an entire list
    of other differences that can really throw a U.S.-spec owner into a deep depression, should
    they dwell too long on it.

    The “real” M3 without extra displacement, electronic nannies, airbox baffles and… air conditioning.

    Which brings us to why this pristine example has arrived at our doorstep. Up until recently,
    the lack of A/C had not posed much of a concern to the owner of this vehicle. Why? Notice
    the unadulterated Dakar Yellow paint job. This beauty has spent the last 15 years hidden
    under lock and key at a warehouse in Europe. The car only has “21000” kilometers on it!!!

    “Blasphemy!” You cry. “Outrageous!”

    Relax… We’re about to make up for all the dormant time. Not only will we be fabricating up
    an entire HIVAC system for the m3, we have also been given full license to throw our
    complete catalog at it… We’re putting everything we have stamped with active on this car,
    software, exhaust, drivetrain, suspension and of course our signature Active Autowerke
    Supercharger Kit. Along the way, there will be pictures videos, dyno plots, and some
    head scratching frustration, no doubt. Keep an eye out as we take you through this
    process step by step, ultimately achieving the impossible perfecting the “real” M3.

    Thought i would share with you guys, some other guys wanted know difference between stock brakes and our big brake kit setup on other forums.

    Stock rotor size 316mm fronts,
    Active Autowerke Big Brake Kit rotor size 331mm fronts.

    You can see the difference when using the vernier gauge.
