A History of Violence: ViolentM3 Kevin Love's E36 M3

     We do not own an E36 M3 as polished as Kevin Love's work-of-art aka ViolentM3.  In fact, we don't own any E36 or any BMW to speak of, currently.  So we choose to live vicariously through Kevin's labor of love, as we've had the opportunity to collaborate on a project with him.  

This is the car we speak of:

     Before we jump into the Tool and Dye Designs x ViolentM3 project, let's run down some of the highlights of the build:

Active Autowerkes Stage 2 Supercharger

Meth Injection

42lb injectors

RK Tune

Superspring Long Tube Headers

DMS Rogue Engineering Exhaust

UUC Engine and Trans mounts

3.38 LSD Differential

Auto Solutions SSK

Visually, besides the extremely deep TechnoViolet paint, the first thing to catch ones eye are the Triple Stepped BBS RS coming in at a fat 18x10.5 and 18x12"

There is a wide body to house these massive rollers

Other exterior mods:

OEM GT splitters and adjustable tray, OEM Lux bumper grill, OEM GT Spoiler with risers

OEM BMW Motorsport door handles

OEM euro aspheric mirror glass

Deleted hood windshield washer nozzles

Modified convertible 3rd brake light

Rear Glass without brake light

Custom FXR retrofitted projector headlights


Airlift V2 air suspension with 5 gallon tank

Viar Compressor

Camber plates

OEM GT strutbar

UUC rear trailing arms and RTAB bushings

Custom RTAB brackets

25mm swaybars

For the interior it's a lot of something we like to call OEM+

OEM Grau MCross Cloth seats (1 of 8 in existence) 

OEM Alcantara euro 3 spoke steering wheel and shift knob

OEM GT door sills

OEM BMW motorsport seatbelts

OEM GT Carbon Fiber center console

OEM GT Carbon Fiber glovebox trim 

OEM rear electric vents

OEM rear sunshade

OEM M3 trunk mat

Full Alcantara headliner and rear parcel shelf

rear head rests

BMW Mtech foot pedals

BSW Speakers

10" Pioneer Subwoofer


That all adds up to a complete build that encompasses all aspects of a vehicle, that looks remarkable, is fast and also handles well.  

We look forward to working more with Kevin but for now, we'll unveil the new skateboard deck we've commissioned.  It is currently in production and should be ready to ship in September.  You can (and should) pre-order now to reserve yours, as it will sell out quickly.
