G-POWER G3 – complete program for the 3-series E90
The current 3-series BMW is indisputably the pinnacle to date in the development of sporty medium-sized sedans. Nevertheless, it still offers plenty of scope with regard to the design and engine for intensive tuning and styling à la G-POWER. At the 2006 Essen Motor Show, this BMW tuning specialist from Brunsbüttel will be showcasing its new, discreetly-sporty aerodynamics program and the extensive rim range. In addition, G-POWER will also be presenting numerous options for engine tuning and technical enhancements.
“Fine feathers make fine birds” – in spite of the already stylish looks of the 3 series, the appearance of this sedan is made all the more dynamic by fitting the new G-POWER Highline Kit. All the components are produced at the tuner’s own plant “CFKtec Brunsbüttel” in “hybrid” technology (carbon-fiber reinforced plastic). The Highline Kit comprises the front bumper, side sills (on request with underfloor/ground lights, rear bumper, wing spoiler or roof spoiler (for Touring model variant), which are complemented by the carbon-fiber front lip and decorative carbon-fiber rear diffuser. For anyone who likes things wider, G-POWER offers its “Extremo” kit, comprising 4 wheel arch extensions plus wing spoilers.
Vehicle tuning without wheels is like soup without salt. For the 3 series, G-POWER offers on the one hand the “Styling III – LIMITED EDITION˝ wheels in a 19 or 20” format. These 3-piece wheels equipped with a 16-spoke spider stand out with their 40% lower weight, compared to normal wheels. A brand-new product, which will also be on display at the 2006 Essen Motor Show, is the Silverstone Diamond wheel (see above). This wheel is characterized by its classically stylish 10-double spoke design, which has also been perfectly adapted to the BMW characteristics. The wheel is available for the 3 series BMW up to 20˝, starting at a price of 540 euros.
When it comes to engine tuning, G-POWER customers benefit from the wealth of experience it has acquired since 1971. For the 3 series, G-POWER offers performance-enhanced four and six cylinder engines with up to 3.3 l displacement. In addition, a 5.2 l V8 with 420 bhp, which, when combined with the shift-time optimized automatic transmission, produces a truly awesome driving experience. G-POWER offers measures to suit everybody’s pocket. From the “optimized characteristic mappings” GS1 + GS1 PLUS to high-capacity engines (e.g. for 330i / 310 bhp), up to complete “heart transplants” (e.g. to V8, 5.0 l/ 470 bhp or V10 5.0/550 bhp). Diesel fans acquire more power in the form of the G-POWER D-Tronik (e.g. 35 bhp/595 Nm in the 330d). Individual customer requests are also catered to!
Tuned to these higher performances are the G-POWER suspensions, which are rigorously tested on the Nürburgring-Nordschleife race circuit and which thus have racing genes in their blood. The program ranges from suspension springs (30 to 50 mm lowering) through to height adjustable G-POWER RS coilover suspensions. Suspension struts and anti-roll bars complete the offer. The G-POWER sports braking systems (e.g. 385 mm and 6 piston) ensure an “anchor” effect in these performance-enhanced vehicles, and are tuned for maximum safety.
Sound tuning is obligatory at G-POWER. The exhaust range guarantees a full sound from partial or full stainless systems featuring 2 or 4 pipes, not to mention the attractive appearance. G-POWER exhaust systems are flow-optimized, and help to ensure a more immediate response to the accelerator. The new, solid Highline stainless steel pipes lend any tail-end a powerful look.
Getting in is a sheer joy – when the interior has been styled with G-POWER accessories. Whether it’s the gear knob, handbrake lever, a new set of pedals or various carbon-fiber inlays, these accessories add racing flair to any BMW. For power-enhanced versions, G-POWER also converts speedometers to 300 or 360 km/h scales. A particularly eye-catching feature are the speedo conversions in the G-POWER “night design”. Anyone wishing for even greater luxury can also order, for instance, genuine Kjerba Softwalk nappa leather upholsteries or anthracite-colored soft velour carpets from G-POWER.
