While we here at PSI don’t always believe in legends, what we do believe in are diehard enthusiasts with a true passion for BMW and motorsport, and the friends we - Read More -

PSI Presents The Unabridged Rendition

Look up the adjective “complete” in the dictionary, and you will notice two definitions. 1. Having all the necessary or appropriate parts. 2. (often used for emphasis) To the greatest extent or degree; total. What you see before you is quite possibly the ultimate manifestation of a “complete” BMW E46 M3. Rather than simply allowing - Read More -

Changing Of The Guard

The departure of an iconic shop car is so much more to its owners and caretakers than simply “out with the old”, even if an imminent “in with the new” is looming ahead. For PSI, the path we have traveled with our Project Fire – through two distinct iterations – has been more than we - Read More -

PSI E30 DTM Replica Published In European Car Magazine!

Some companies or businesses can go years or even decades without any form of public acknowledgement. It may be that their particular field does not warrant such heralding, but in the automotive world, positive publicity can have a great effect on branding, and go a long way toward establishing general perception. Here at PSI, we - Read More -

Facing The Animal

Few things in life are quite as polarizing as seeing a BMW X6M suddenly appear in your field of vision – even less so one featuring several significant modifications. Improvements of this magnitude, in our view, should be registered as an official method of inducing a stroke, right next to strobe lights and listening to - Read More -

Vorsteiner + Akrapovic + Active Autowerke = WIN

IMG_7818-as-Smart-Object-1

Sometimes, cute and cuddly just doesn’t work. Aggression and menace are the order of the day, nowhere less so than with this intimidating Jet Black BMW E92 M3 by PSI. Its presence and purposefulness are unmistakeable, thanks in part to the latest 19″ Vorsteiner Flowform wheels and Eibach lowering springs. This car doesn’t just sit, it crouches, waiting silently for its next victim.

Also aiding with this visually arresting appearance are a Vorsteiner GTS-V front spoiler and rear carbon boot lid to aid with aerodynamic flow. A full titanium Akrapovic Evolution exhaust system ensures that the projected implications are backed up with the proper noise, which in this case rises to a spine-tingling shriek when provoked.

The beating heart within this beast is provided with great aplomb by an Active Autowerke supercharger system, including a striking custom orange manifold that sets off the surrounding engine bay. Inside, a 3D Design guage pod houses VEI Systems AFR/boost and water temp gauges to monitor vitals, with BPMSport providing their custom coding to truly unlock the necessary features and functions for prowling the streets.

With the right boxes ticked, this E92 M3 has the power and the ethereal existence to lurk in the shadows until the time is right to strike, leaving decimation and obliteration in its forced-inducted path.

Dark times are upon us.
