Hey guys I stopped by VFE shop and I took a test drive in their E46S54 2005 M3. ALL I can say is OMG that car rocks! Of course I let the car warm up for around 10mins before I started pushing it to redline. I had it over 100mph in less than a quarter mile on the street according to the Speedo. (BIG industrial area here in Fullerton)... The handeling was exceptional... like having a V8 under the hood. If I had to guess the HP it would be around 450- 480HP. Very hard to tell while driving it ... I can say this... If you want power this is the way to go... I will post photos soon

Here’s the scoop with my car, VFE will be starting development S54MZ3 Supercharger kit after next week. The main components of the kit will include the intake, charge cooler, bosh injectors, new GIAC software and of course the same V2sq Vortech blower that was on my Z3 3.0I last August. I will try to document the process so you guys can get an inside look of the project.

Thank you VFE for the joyride!!!

Welcome to my fun world... I've been driving our VF Supercharged 3 Series for 2 years now ;)

It's not quite done but when it is we'll be taking orders & offering free shipping... We are your source for VFEngineering Products!

I was told by VFE that they expects the release to be around the 1st of january. The WOT software is complete and they are doing software testing/turning on normal daily driving.

The new S54 software from BMW did not help speed things up.

I dont understand the question, but I think you are asking which models of the new s54 software? I think its every S54 from 2001 - current. You would know because if you own one you would have recieved a letter from BMWNA to get your car software updated.

sorry for the miss spelling on the previous post turning = tuning...

The software recall did not affect your car.

Copy of the letter for recall can be found here on a post by me. Nevermind the flamers on that thread. I personally just got my inspection I completed and software updated by crevierBMW. Car runs great. I hope this helps
