BMW Tuner Shops in or around Baltimore

Hey guys, I have tried searching but dont come up with much for shops around Baltimore. Anyone know of any good BMW specific shops in the area for aftermarket tuning/installs?

I live right over the PA line north of Baltimore. So far the only thing I could find is Helix in Philly. I know CBRD Speedfactory is in York, PA but I think they mainly focus on Subbies and EVOs.

Thanks in advance

Induktion is near by in Severn, MD. There's a lot in Balitmore area but that's the only one I know.

What do you need installed. The tuning of this vehicle is simple enough for 2 year olds to do. Its either PNP in the ecu box or pushing a few buttons for a flash. Im sure someone local could help you free.

honestly I am just curious. This is my first BMW and I am stocking up on mods to put on as soon as I get home.

I am mechanically inclined, built my jeep from the ground up. I am technically inclined, I work in engineering for video intelligence and UAVs.

I have never ventured into the german motor sports area though. I think my main concern would be suspension and exhaust type stuff. I do plan to do everything I can myself, but if I am iffy on something, its a rather expensive vehicle I don't want to screw it up.

Honestly I am very excited to meet other bmw people though and learn as much as I can, was just looking for something I dont feel I could do.

I know Mach V in Sterling, VA does work on 335s. It would be a bit of a drive from Baltimore, but you could cross with 70 West, I think, and then shoot down 15 South into Leesburg, VA.

I believe there is an install party happening at Clem's on 6/18. You could check that out and meet some other locals. Send him a PM if you would like to go.

Hey neighbor.
I am actually curious too. I have done all of my own work so far.

I did visit Helix and picked up my IC there. Nice guys but it's a haul. I checked out CBRD the other day. It is primarily for Sti/EVOs. One of the guys there gave me a tour of the place, but the owner never came out to meet me even though the place was empty. I thought that was odd. Then I sent an e-mail to the owner about getting some simple Dyno pulls and he never replied. I got the impression I was being snubbed. Oh well, their loss.

Custom Performance Engineering (CP-e) is in Beltsville, MD which is not far from you. Great products and a great install shop.

Mach V is in Nova....they also are a great install shop and doing more and more Bimmers. Ask for Dan or Darren.

CP-e is a little far for me.

I am thinking about going to JE Imports this week for some dyno pulls.
They fabricated the first single big turbo setup for an n54.

Where is Clem?(s?)

GT Performance in Edgewood is excellent. They are mainly Porsche but also do alot of other highend German brands. The have extensive race knowledge. I drive over an hour to take my car there. There prices are also very competitive.
