BMW 335 slightly tuned

We are told there has been some heavy tuning gone on in here, nothing too obvious looking in here aside from the aftermarket air filters.. Think they may have hidden away nicely a big intercooler too…..

Some great feedback from one of the tune we did (Citroen)

I would like to take the opportunity to say that the car performance/behaviour has changed significantly on take-off, the lag is gone. It also feels quieter and smoother. Overall, a more enjoyable drive. If I only knew that it would perform this better I’d have it done earlier; Satisfaction overcomes cost.

Thank you for all the prompt and clear communication, professionalism and quality of service throughout the process. I will definitely recommend your shop to others.

Have a great weekend!

Kind regards,
