You’re one in a million.
We really mean that – we’re not just saying it so you’ll be our friend. You are one out of one million BMW owners within 12 hours of our home base in Miami, FL. And while being an individual is important, sometimes it can also be lonely. That’s why we’re inviting you – and the million who share your passion and enthusiasm down to Homestead-Miami Speedway on April 25, 2015.
We’re glad you asked. We may not have a million reasons – but here are five that should convince you not to miss The BMW Event.
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
Even Superman is jealous of this kind of power!
It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s a BMW 128i with a custom Karl Hugh tune! It may be unconventional, but here at Active Autowerke we thrive on a hands-on approach to achieve considerable gains. When our Software Engineer Karl Hugh creates a tune for a customer, he takes a more personal approach to bring them the results they desire.
Karl was recently approached by a driver named Kyle Herbst, who was faced with a dilemma. No one had a setup for a 128i that would make it nationally competitive in the Sports Car Club of America Autocross. There was little information on what tires, wheels, or suspension to use and it was becoming too much of a head ache for Kyle to handle alone. That’s when Karl stepped in to lend a hand.

We’re feeling very Olympic today…
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.
Time for some World History…
For many of us who grew up in the U.S., our first encounter with the country of Taiwan happened when we flipped over the plastic trinkets that came with our Happy Meals, and asked our mothers to read the three little words that we found. Although we couldn’t pronounce it’s name, Taiwan meant one thing to us: fun toys.
Now (somewhat) more mature, “Made in Taiwan” carries a similar meaning, at least here at Active Autowerke. Over the years, we’ve cultivated a profound relationship with a large group of BMW enthusiasts on the island who have some pretty impressive toys of their own…and none of them contain a single ounce of cheap plastic.

All of us have dreams. Many of us pursue them. Some of us come close to realizing them.
However, only a select few of us take the meticulous measurements required to not only achieve, but excel at every step along the way. It takes patience, sacrifice, and a lot of luck to make your dreams a reality.
Robert Chang didn’t begin racing to just participate. He didn’t begin racing to escape from his daily life. Robert Chang dove headfirst into a dream that he had little experience in, yet now finds himself at the pinnacle of. All of us here at Active Autowerke are enormously proud to congratulate him on his 2013 National Championship in BMWCCA’s C-Modified class.
Read on to learn how Robert lived out his dream. Learn More

Passion? Obsession? Addiction?
These words may sound a bit strong to the average person. Negative, even. However, between ourselves and Precision Sport Industries, we like to believe we give obsessive compulsive disorder a good name.
We honestly can’t help ourselves. The stainless steel shine of our hand-welded exhausts? Our reputation. The decimals on the dyno sheet? Our business. Without this perfectionist attitude and attention to detail, we’d be just another result on a Google search page.
When it comes to your BMW, you may experience a certain amount of OCD as well. We get it. You should expect top quality products and service. You should expect in a word…precision.
And when it comes to trusting your neighborhood performance tuning shop, our money is on the one with “Precision” right in it’s name. Learn More
