Kneibler Autotechnik ramped up the performance and the styling of the BMW E46 M3 Coupe. To get 459 hp and 498 Nm, Kneiber placed a supercharger using a compressor kit and a charge air cooler.
The performance upgrade will cost 13.000 Euro. For 1.350 Euro more, you get a sport muffler made of high-grade steel. Extreme driving performances have great demands on the tires, chassis and brakes.
To remedy that, Kneiber mounts a Stoptech-high performance brake system with 6-lobes (3.852 Euro) and a two part slit discs (size 380x32 mm) at the front axle. The Stoptech brake system with 355/32 mm brake discs with 4-lobes (3.103 Euro) takes care of the needed deceleration in the rear.
The whole brake system is complemented by an innovative brake calliper air vent plug (109,00 Euro) from Stahlbus. The Oxigin-alloys improve driving dynamics and its overall appearance as they fill out the fender perfectly.
The sizes are 8,5x20" and 11x20" and are hooped with high performance tires from Hankook, sizes 255/30-20 and 305/25-20. The price for the set is 2.723 Euro. For an extra 350 Euro, the wheel arches are flanged and custom-fitted.
A KW-sport coilover kit V3 (1.749 Euro) and KW- sport stabilizers for 419 Euro make the handling of the M3 supercharged even sportier. You can get the conversion to LSD-gull-wing-doors in Pfalzgrafenweiler for 1.990 Euro.
