Thumbs up 5-Star EVO Rating for E92 Hartge S3-3.5

EVO Magazine (evo 104 page 056) gave the Hartge Spirit S3-3.5 upgraded E92 335i the full five stars.

360bhp and 328lb ft thanks the an ECU remap (with perhaps more to come).
Reworked suspension - new springs, dampers, anti-roll bars.
Quaife diff.
356mm AP Racing front dics with 6-pot alloy callipers
20" multi-spoke classic rims, P Zero Nero tyres
a discreet carbon chin spoiler and a quartet of polished tailpipes
(otherwise looks like a stock 335i SE, no wild bodykit)

The result is they liked it a lot, but it pushes the price to £50K into M3 territory.

Edit: Conversion cost is £15,890 inc VAT and fitting - presumably Birds can quote for the upgrades seperately.

Edit2: The article doesn't say, but I am guessing this was a manual car - can't believe EVO would give 5 stars to an auto ;-}

Well worth a read if you're thinking of modding your 335i...
