Actually, Hamann offers a turbocharger for the 3 series, and Brabus offers a supercharger kit for the S500 mercedes.
I'm happy to be getting the supercharger kit. Name one tuner that has an e39, non supercharged, with the original engine (Can be reworked. Not a shoehorned V12) which is faster than the supercharged 540i. I challenge you to go to any of the other boards and ask around to see who's Dinan supercharged 3, 5, 7, or 8 (turbocharged) has blown up on them. You might also want to ask if it was worth the money they spent.


: real, extensive BMW tuners won't even bother with using an aftermarket supercharger(cheap and poor way of gaining performance), rather, the true tuners will rework the engine(bore it and machine it) to gain maximum performance and power out of the engine. Look at all the great tuners, AC Schnitzer, Hamann, Racing Dynamics, Brabus, etc. absolutely none of them will ever use a supercharger, they know it's a stupid and cheap way to modify a car. peace.
