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
Bringing You More For Your Service Purchase
Raise your hand if you’ve ever driven away your local BMW service shop wondering when your finely-tuned German barnburner turned into a ridiculously costly Ultimate Maintenance Machine.
When did your favorite toy turn into so much work?
They say you’ve got to pay to play, but when you’re dipping into Junior’s college fund just so your dealership technician can replace your E36’s rear trailing arm bushings for the umpteenth time, you probably aren’t laughing. 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
Your Chance To Do Something None Of Our Competitors Ever Will…Catch Up With Us
WE’RE ALMOST to the end of 2013. Can you believe that?
With each year that goes by, the trends, topics, and technologies change. Frankly, we’re finding it a little hard to keep up. Everywhere we look people are talking about the newest gaming console (the newest iPhone is known as the 5, but the newest X-Box is the one? Where’s Jerry Seinfeld on all this?), managing their fantasy football leagues (Megatron has won the week for us on more than one occasion), or sharing videos featuring an obscene amount of jiggling skin and…assets.
Meanwhile, we’re just over here trying to make these dad-gum horseless carriages a little faster.
Maybe we’re just old fashioned.
Then again, it’s pretty easy to stay relevant when our products are powering some of the most powerful BMW’s on the road AND the roadcourse. Not to toot our own horn…but beep-beep. Learn More
Real Men Love (Power) Curves
If your local highways, tracks, and drive-thrus have been anything like the Active Autowerke shop recently, you already know that the latest (and possibly last) iteration of the BMW M3 is more popular than ever. The E90, E92, and E93 Chassis are more advanced, luxurious, and powerful than any 3-series before them, and as a result, have sold like wienerschnitzel…or whatever the German equivalent of hot cakes might be.
For most of their owners, the high-revving 400+ horsepower V8 S65 engine housed within these M3s is more than enough to get to and from a relatively boring commute. It’s even enough to give your boss’s corvette a run for it’s money on almost any stretch of pavement…not that we’d condone racing your boss in public. There’s a strong chance you might lose your Christmas bonus.
However, if 414bhp were enough for you, you wouldn’t be reading this blog. You wouldn’t be contemplating supercharging your M3. You wouldn’t be plotting alternate routes that just may have you running into your company’s CEO’s Ferrari for a friendly jaunt. Learn More
Active Autowerke Charges Ahead In The N55 Tuning Game
TRUST IN large corporations is extremely hard to earn…and we don’t mean the kind of trust that the Fortune 500 CEO has stashed away for his little Prince or Princess Charming. That’s no to say there’s anything wrong with having a wealthy patriarch in the family; too many people are quick to hate on the hard work of others, and the priveleges those accomplishemnts afford.
What we’re talking about here is earnest trust in a company. Trust that a face-less conglomerate will provide the right product to their customers. Trust that spending over $40,000 of your own, your father’s, or ANYONE’s money for that matter, will buy you a product that will meet your expectations of reliability and performance.
Unfortunately, the BMW N55 powered 135i, 335i, and 535i models have broken not only that trust, but their own intake charge pipes. Just like any parent though, wealthy or not, Active Autowerke has a cure for your boo-boo. Just don’t ask us to kiss it – that would be inappropriate. Learn More
Active Autowerke Loves A Good Underdog Story
YOU’VE PROBABLY seen an E9X 328i at some point in your life. In fact, you’ve probably already seen one or two, or 20 (if you happen to live down the street from your local university’s sorority row), today. This particular BMW model is so prevelant, it may not even register when one happens to pull up next to you at a stoplight. BMW’s most popular 3-series was built as a stepping stone to the more powerful 335i and M3, right? Something for your wife or girlfriend to drive to her weekly facial appointment. No on in their right mind would bother buying such a platform with the intent to modify it, it’s pointless, right?
