The BMW Z4-series by G-Power

G-Power, Tuning

So it came BMW Z4 Roadster’s turn to receive modifications from guys from G-Power, changes in all directions, engine, suspension, wheels, and tires. The G-POWER program for the BMW Z4 E89 touches all key components and lets the nifty BMW Z4 appear even more sporty, beautiful and last but not least exclusive.

Twin-turbo on Z4 sDrive 35i, benefits from a module BI-TRONIK that makes from standard engine of 306 hp and 400 Nm, a propeller that will develop 345 hp and 480 Nm, with which the roadster will reach 100 km / h in 4.7 seconds, with a half a second faster compared the engine factory.

Tuners also brought a new suspension and drum with a better “sound”, beside the four exhaust pipes. Wheels that fitted the new Z4 measures 20 inches and come with  Michelin Pilot Sport tires 255/30 ZR 20 in front and 295/25 ZR 20 on the back. Further improvement of the road handling is realized through the continuously height-adjustable G-POWER coil-over suspension GZ4-RS with nine selectable settings each for bound and rebound.

And I think is the case to talk about prices: wheels + tires cost 4474 €, suspension € 1256, evacuation € 1978 and engine upgrade € 1978, plus €403 for installation.

Come on, that if you have money for Z4 Roadster, certainly you will find something more through pockets for these upgrades.

The new Audi AS3 by ABT

ABT, Tuning

ABT unveiled a package of tuning for Audi A3 facelift. Tuner called modified car AS3 and says that is more than cosmetic surgery.

On the exterior we can notice some changes: changed grid, bonnet, and cover, front bumper and new lateral thresholds. Even the front LED lights have changed the shape.

In this way appears AS3, a more sports and more nervous Audi A3. Most engines were adjusted by ABT results are the following:

• 1.4 TSI – 160cp (125 Stock)
• 1.8 TSI – 210cp (160 Stock)
• 2.0 TDI – 240CP (200 Stock)
• 2.0 TDI – 170cp (140 Stock)
• 2.0 TDI – 190cp (170 stock)

It goes without saying that the AS3 does not just look fast, but is fast too. This is because ABT POWER also brings the engines up to speed. ABT also offers performance increases for the two-litre turbo diesel: depending on the starting power output either 170HP (125kW) or 190HP (140kW) is achieved – and both bring plenty of torque with them.

In order to utilize the well-trained “ABT horses” in the best possible way on the road, ABT Performance Springs are recommended. Thanks to the lowering of the car`s centre of gravity by around 35 millimeters the agility of the AS3 is improved, which makes itself felt especially at corners.

The ABT braking unit with its disc diameter of 345 millimeters provides the best deceleration values, even in borderline areas. All components have been tuned to the AS3, making the compact ABT a real sports car, both on the inside and outside.

Nissan GT-R R35 body components by Stillen

Stillen, Tuning

Recently, STILLEN is proud to release functional high quality urethane Front Lip Spoiler for the Nissan GT-R R35.

By developing the car Nissan, he did a great job of developing an aero package that works well, but left some room for improvement for the true enthusiast.  The STILLEN Urethane Lip Spoiler adds 2″ of length to the OEM fascia, and installs directly onto the vehicle over the factory piece.

This lip spoiler is designed to hold additional air onto the nose, with flares on the side corners producing a canard effect for extra control.

One of major benefit of the front lip spoiler is the durability.  Constructed out of high-quality polyurethane, this front spoiler is nearly indestructible and carries a limited lifetime warranty.

Utilizing Steve Millen’s expansive racing heritage, STILLEN is proud to release functional high quality urethane Side Skirts for the Nissan GT-R R35. Tested in the Lockheed Martin wind tunnel, the Nissan engineers found that by enhancing the side ledge on the rocker it applied an incremental amount of down force at higher speeds thus keeping the car planted and more stable through high speed corners.

Another major benefit of the rockers is the greatly improved appearance.  Offering a much more aggressive look and race proven engineering these rockers are sure to catch attention and compliments.  Just like all STILLEN body work these are constructed out of durable polyurethane, ready for paint, and offer a limited lifetime warranty.  It is perfect for daily driving.
