2013 BMW M3 GT500 by Leib Engineering
German Tuner, Leib Engineering launches a power and exhaust kit for the BMW M3 GT500. The engineers at Leib finished the M3 in an Alpine White that is complemented by a high-grade carbon-fiber body kit. This kit features carbon flaps under the front spoiler, carbon side-view mirrors, and a carbon tear-off edge. Alcantara was among the favorite material at Leib for the cabin. This material can be found all over the interior including in the BMW performance seats and the steering wheel.
The German tuner worked on the engine-control software to attain the desired results. Their aim was to give the M3 an improved performance of 470 hp. This is a significant improvement from the standard M3’s 420 hp. The highlight of the vehicle is the in-house valve exhaust system (made of high-grade steel) as from the manifold, which covers a 100-cell HJS catalyzer, an X-pipe with middle silencers and an end muffler with vacuum-controlled Pierburg valves. The sound of the system is controlled through the M-key. Leib Engineering also installed a potent Brembo GT braking system, whose red 6-piston fixed saddles on the front axle hold perforated 380×32-millimeter discs firmly in their grip. 4-piston saddles on perforated 320×28-millimeter brake discs act on the rear.
The new model by this tuner features a set of 19-inch BMW M220 forged-alloy wheels wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport Cup semi-slick tires. The dual clutch transmission system now functions with even shorter shifting times after a software update. Even the electronic system of the KW DDC ECU chassis suspension was modified by Leib Engineering in such a way that the electronic damper control system of the high-tech coilover suspension can now be comfortably controlled through the original EDC key or M key.
