I don't know any e60 members who have gone with VF-E superchargers, many e46 and e39 guys have gone with VF-E kits and posted good reviews on other forums such as here: VF E46 330 Supercharger Install Complete - Review - E46Fanatics or http://www.bmpdesign.com/project_car...percharger.php

I am the only one on the list as of now, I don't know how long this group-buy will last but hopefully for awhile so we can get more people in so we can get a deeper discount. Please let me know if you want more information regarding the supercharger kits or group-buy, you can also contact VF-Engineering directly for questions. Let's get this group buy going guys! It's definitely the most substantial upgrade you can do to your car power-wise and I think it's pretty reasonable compared to ESS Tuning's TS1 or AA's stage 1 kits!

It is exciting! We are lucky to have the wide availability of tuners for m54 I6 motors, currently vf-engineering is offering the best bang for buck and compatibility with the e60 model. I know vf-e hasn't created anything for the v8 e60's but ESS is making them, my friend and member jjsigpi on this board has the stage 2 kit, its wicked fast message him if you would like to know more info.

Come on guys let's get on the fast lane and go supercharge your car, for the money its undeniably the most performance enhancing mod you can do to your car, why spend money on three piece forged wheels when for the same price you will have a one of a kind supercharged e60 which will put a huge smile on your face every time you go for a spin!

Any pre/post dynos on a test car? I'm not a 525i/530i owner, but this might help drum up some interest!

Updated, with Dyno charts!

Guys here's a stage 1supercharger install done on an e60 525i courtesy of EAS really goes to show how easy of an install it is and how non-intrusive it looks in the engine bay!

Very interesting. I've always been pretty disappointed in the lack of power in my 525i, and am hesistant to get rid of it because of how much I've put in and since its paid off. So this is very interesting. Do you have any other videos of inside the car after the supercharger or anything? All of the dyno charts are for e39, anything for e60s?

How much does a install typically cost?

Hey man, I am in the same boat as you, bought my car back in 06 with low mileage barely put any miles on it over the years all the while spending a ton of money on mods. I love the way my car looks and I'm pretty content with the power but when I started looking around for power mods I knew I would have to go f/I inevitably if I wanted more power! The video above is not my car, I found it off of YouTube. As for the dyno charts their are no e60's with the vf sc that have posted dynos I assume, however the e39 m54 I6 2.5/3.0 variants above will show an accurate representation of expected hp/tq gains that will be perceived on a stock e60. Installation takes 8-10 hours and depends entirely on the shops labor rate and I would go with an authorized shop recommended by vf to install it on your car. Let me know if you have any more questions, and if you would like to join the group buy place a deposit by calling or emailing vf-engineering and let me know so I can add you to the list! Come on guys get this before the deal ends!
