Bring your BMW closer to the ground with the ECS Street Coilover Systems. Eliminating wheel gap with springs is fine, but when you want something with more height adjustability, sport-tuned dampers, and specifically rated springs for a more responsive driving experience, these coilovers are exactly right for you. With adjustable ride height, new sway bar links, and fixed dampers tuned for their specific model, you can confidently give your BMW better looks and a better feel without the cost associated with more aggressive systems that are overkill on the street.

All vehicles will lose some degree of performance due to heat soak under the right operating conditions. BMW integrated the intake air temp sensor in the MAF housing several models, including those powered by the N52. Compensating for this false hot air measurement, the ECU pulls timing and runs a richer fuel mixture, resulting in a significant loss of torque. Turner designed an IAT relocation kit that moves the intake air temp sensor to a cooler location. The result is you’ll experience reduced torque loss and more consistent power output when you’re pushing your engine hard.

Castrol SRF is an ultra high performing silicone-based brake fluid that exceeds DOT5 boiling points. SRF is a truly impressive brake fluid with the highest boiling points of any brake fluid we currently sell. We have used it extensively in our Touring and GT race cars. It's a silicone-based fluid that is hydrophobic and will not absorb moisture. Mixing silicone and glycol fluids is not recommended so SRF is best used with all new hydraulic components or by repeatedly flushing the old system with SRF until the old fluid is gone.

The hard bends in the stock hose always end up cracking and leaking, but since the water pump thermostat assembly is tucked up above the subframe, it can be difficult to pinpoint the leak. When you upgrade your OE rubber hose to the ECS aluminized silicone hose, you don't just get a longer lasting, more flexible hose, but also one that's better suited to withstand high underhood temperatures. We use silicone because of its more pliable nature as well as its resistance to heat. The next step was wrapping it with aluminum to offer further protection from the exhaust system.

If you live in an apartment or you can't get your car up on ramps or stands but want to change your oil, then this is exactly what you need. This tool enables you to drain from the dipstick tube and refill like normal, without getting under the car or fighting with drain plugs. Not only is it convenient it's also efficient: most cars leave oil in the pan when being drained from the plug—sometimes up to a half quart. The extractor, however, can reach this remaining broken down fluid to make room for even more uncontaminated lubricant. Extract the extra work from the job.
