European Auto Source (EAS) participates every year in the European Car Tuner GP and this year brings a special 2015 BMW M4. EAS is all about high-performance and they build project BMWs that can be driven on the street and track. In previous years, they have competed with a supercharged E92 M3 and a supercharged E86 Z4M.

This year, they showed up with a turbo car. This 2015 BMW M4 Coupe will put down a massive 559 horsepower and 605 lb. ft of torque at the wheels. EAS says they made some changes to the new M4 monster so it could best handle the track with this much power. They also build all their cars so they can be driven to the track and this special M4 is no exception.

EAS tunes the 2015 M4

EAS lowered the new BMW M4 but knows that the track demands “a bit more” from the suspension than the street. EAS says, “We opted for a set of KW Clubsport 2-way adjustable coilovers, which enabled us to dial-in the optimal settings for the highly technical Streets of Willow Raceway. We then installed a front/rear Brembo GT big brake kit for better stopping power and fade-free performance. Like many of our track-going customers, we installed a set of strong and lightweight 18" Apex EC-7 wheels wrapped in the event required Continental Extreme Contact DW tires.”

A double duty street/track weapon

Just like every other year EAS has competed with, they drove the 2015 M4 Coupe to and from the event “to prove that it's a double duty street/track weapon.” Their driver, Jordan Yost of Yost Autosport, test drove the F82 at the track and was able put down some impressive lap times.
