The Sakhir M4 Journal 7-28-14

Later this week we will be sharing some great comparison photos showing you the differences between the Sakhir Orange on our M4 and other shades of BMW orange, but for today we wanted to share a few more random shots to illustrate how Sakhir looks in different lighting and weather settings. We will have several more updates coming shortly as well.

Enjoy the photos!

BREMBO Stopping Power!


The big news last week was the official announcement of the new Brembo Big Brake Kits for the BMW M3 and M4 models, and it made our day! We’ve been longtime fans of the competency and effectiveness of the Brembo GT and GT-R systems, and these latest additions look to be no exception. Of particular note is the inclusion of the CCM-R Carbon Disc option, which adds carbon rotors to the kits for lighter weight and significantly better resistance to brake fade.

Sizing options include 6-piston 380x34mm in front and 4-piston 380x28mm rear, with either GT or GT-R calipers and steel or the CCM-R carbon rotors. We also offer custom painting of the GT brake calipers! If you have a specific color in mind, let us know. We expect to have stock by mid-August for the GT line. CCM-R Systems are built to order with a standard lead time of about 3-4 weeks. CCM-R discs are currently in stock.

Let us know if you have any questions!

Sakhir Inferno Journal 7-17-14

Knowing that a custom wheel company is local to us, it would be nearly criminal not to bring our new BMW M4 over and try on a series of different wheels and tires to find out the maximum we could run – especially in the rear. At CCW (Complete Custom Wheels) here in Central Florida, our goal was to find out how far we could push the sizes and fitments without any rubbing or having to roll the fenders.


After several combinations were installed, including a few pairs of wheels off the shelf, we were able to fit a 19″ x 11.5″ 325/30/19 in the rear. We also compressed the rear to simulate fitment with coil overs. This helps to produce the best sizes for each customer’s unique preference and use of the car (street/track).

Sakhir Inferno Journal 7-14-14

This week we will be releasing new photos of our trip to CCW (Complete Custom Wheels) to find out the very highest possible offsets and sizes we could run with respect to both wheels and tires, but until then, here are a few more photos of our BMW M4 experience.

More BMW M3 and M4 Products!

We are on the verge of what looks like a beautiful July 4th holiday weekend, but we wanted to share a few new BMW M3/M4 products that were just released. First, H&R announced the M4-specific Sport Springs, so those of you on the fence about using 435i springs can now breathe easy. They will lower your M4 by 1.2″ in front and 1.3″ in the rear. Here is our new M4 wearing H&R springs.


Secondly, while they technically aren’t new, we added the BMW Performance black front grilles to the M3 and M4 sections of our store. For anyone looking to rid their car of the OEM chrome grille surrounds, these are the solution. The trim simply snaps off your existing grilles, and the new black pieces snap on in their place – it’s an easy direct replacement.


Have a great weekend, and be safe!

Sakhir Inferno M4 Build Journal

We are certainly no stranger to BMW M cars, having become intimately familiar with every generation of the mighty M3. At the moment, we have every generation of M3 on hand, from the competition-bred E30 on through the fire-breathing E92. Viewed in this light, the next logical progression is that of the new F80 M3 and F82 M4. So take a journey with us as we explore every detail and unlock the potential of the scorching new BMW M3/M4 platform. We promise to bring you a complete photo documentation of every step we take with the Sakhir Inferno.

Our M4 arrived with 11 miles on the clock, straight from the dealership as the sun began to set.

Most of the night was spent methodically capturing every aspect with our photographer, and fitting the first of many modifications to come. Wheel measurements were recorded, and a beautiful set of 19″ Hyper Bronze Volk Racing TE37 SL wheels were fitted in place of the OEM 19s along with H&R Super Sport springs.


Once the front wheels were off, we installed the iND painted reflectors.


After the reflectors were in, it was time for new wheels and a test drive.


The next morning we installed the F32 BMW Performance Grille surrounds along with the TE37 SL spoke decals, and then headed out for a quick photo shoot.


Stay tuned for more updates and information!

BMW F15 X5 Upgrades


Hard to believe it’s almost July! We’ve had a great summer so far, filled with great clients like this one. They literally picked up their brand new BMW X5 and drove it straight here for immediate upgrades. We were happy to change their chrome front grilles to black versions and add BMW Performance aluminum pedals, and we suspect they will be back before too long for more improvements!

Also, our new BMW M4 is almost here, so we are very excited for the future! Have a great weekend, everyone.
