Another year has passed and it’s hard to not be just a little sentimental. 2014 has been a fruitful year filled with great accomplishments. Instead of listing every single thing we have achieved, we decided to save you the boredom of reading an endless essay of accomplishments and instead we’ll list our top 3. We will also be saving our biggest and most exciting accomplishment for last. So fasten your seat belts because we are about to speed through a year at Active Autowerke. Continue Reading
Here we are.
It’s been quite a journey, and we can’t lie; it’s been a tough one. Project Euro M3 began as more of a dream than anything: Build a fully functioning – comfortable – 500+ horsepower ultimate driving machine. The platform for the ambitious build was arguably one of the most coveted iterations of the legendary marque, the European market E36 M3. Our mission was simple…add a bunch of extra air.
Both in the engine bay, AND the cabin.
Stopping The Madness
Being able to take a moment to just stop…stop rushing through our daily lives; stop worrying about our finances; stop fooling ourselves into thinking reality television is worth watching…is a convenience many of us fail to take advantage of.
However, it’s important to take that moment when we can. Sometimes, it’s the only way for us to get going again.
Being able to stop on command is also important on the street or racetrack. While we all love to play with power, the ability to reign it in is an essential, yet often overlooked, aspect.

There won’t be a cute lead-in to this one…Other than that positively brilliant title of course.
No, this post exists to accomplish only one purpose – to properly track the progress of one of the most rare and extensive builds we have ever taken part in.
Over the coming months, we’ll be documenting a full-scale project, the likes of which most of you have probably never seen. It will require well-planned custom fabrication, copious dyno testing, and hours of fine tuning in order to ensure the level of quality and finish that our customers have grown accustomed to. Active Autowerke is on the brink of beginning a journey to rival anything Tolkein, Martin, or Rowling could possibly dream up. And you won’t believe where it will take us.
Of course, like any good story, this one requires a bit of a prologue… Learn More
