M3 and M4 each blessed by G-Power with 600 hp.
G-Power is living up to its name by infusing a lot more oomph in BMW’s M3 (F80) and M4 (F82) high-performance models which both share a biturbo 3.0-liter, straight-six engine. After the tuner works its magic, the output numbers will jump by 169 horsepower (124 kilowatts) and 140 pound-feet (190 newton meters) to a grand total of 600 hp (441 kW) and 546 lb-ft (740 Nm).
It’s all possible thanks to the Bi-Tronik 2 V3 package (€3,250) corroborated with upgraded turbochargers (€3,650) and beefier exhaust downpipes (€1,780). Also part of the kit is a new lightweight titanium exhaust featuring carbon fiber tips to provide a meaner look for Bavaria’s M dynamic duo for those willing to pay the €7,647 asking price.
With all the revisions implemented, the BMW M3 and M4 will run the sprint to 62 mph (100 kph) in only 3.7 seconds compared to the stock models which need 4.3 seconds to accomplish the same task. While the standard Ms come with an electronic top speed limiter programmed at 155 mph (250 kph), G-Power will reconfigure the software in exchange for €668 to allow both models hit around 199 mph (320 kph).
There’s more to the tuning package than just a power bump and a less restrictive limiter, as the M3 Sedan and M4 Coupe also take advantage of a custom coilover suspension (€2,880), carbon fiber aerodynamic body kit, and new 21-inch wheels shod in high-performance tires priced from a hefty €7,647.

Through the use of their Bi-Tronik 2 V3 module with bespoke control parameters, G-POWER increase the output of the twin-turbo 3.0-litre straight-six from 431 hp (317 kW) to a whopping 600 hp (441 kW). This 169 hp power hike is accompanied by a commensurate rise in peak torque from 550 to 740Nm.
As G-POWER’s 600 hp goal was well beyond the capability of the OE turbochargers, the turbochargers were re-engineered with larger turbine and compressor wheels within CNC machined and gas flow optimised housings.
Despite being larger, these new turbine wheels are actually lighter, reducing inertia and improving throttle response. The greater efficiency also reduces exhaust gas temperatures, allowing higher boost pressure for more power.
Also contributing to the output increase are larger diameter exhaust downpipes without catalysts on the export-only version. This, and the lightweight titanium exhaust system with carbon-fibre encased tailpipe ends reduce back-pressure.
The dramatic increase in power and torque delivers a significant improvement in acceleration and top speed. The benchmark 0-100 km/h sprint is slashed to just 3.7 seconds, 0.5 sec faster than stock, and with recalibration of the electronic speed limiter to just over 320 km/h this pair are now genuine 200 mph supercar killers.
To balance the M3 and M4 chassis with their uprated engine G-POWER offers their GM4-RS coil-over suspension. Fully adjustable for bounce, rebound and ride height, this suspension system can be dialled in to optimise handling and grip while maintaining reasonable ride comfort.
The higher achievable top speeds gave rise to G-POWER’s motorsport inspired carbon-fibre aerodynamic component programme. Designed to reduce lift over both axles, the G-POWER ‘RS’ front spoiler, ‘CS’ front splitter, and ‘CS’ rear diffuser also help to give these cars their more purposeful look. The ‘CS’ boot mounted spoiler is exclusively for the M4 Coupe.
A set of G-POWER HURRICANE RR lightweight forged alloy wheels in 9.0x21 and 10.5x21 inch sizes, shod with 245/30R21 and 295/25R21 high performance tyres fills out the big arches and give the chassis more mechanical grip. The black finish on this five double-spoke wheel design perfectly complements the sporty, dynamic appearance of the M3 and M4 pairing.
