Tarox VW Golf GTi Mk V Uprated Discs and Pads
Tarox's sweet-looking discs come in four different flavors: the diagonally vented G88, JDM-inspired Sport Japan, spiral grooved F2000, and the traditional, OEM-styled Zero. Each features a CNC-machined face and goes through a structural stress-relieving heat treatment at the end of each machining cycle. Match them up with Tarox's pads, which come in two varieties, Strada for daily driven vehicles and track-ready Corsa for more demanding, high-performance applications. Prices start from $456 for a front pair of any of the disc designs, while pads start from $175 for the Strada street pads.

Vorsteiner Lamborghini Huracan Verona Aero Program
These latest carbon-fiber goodies for the Huracan apparently do more than just look good. Vorsteiner developed a bumper-hugging front spoiler that directs air into the openings of the front radiators but doesn't alter ground clearance too much. Meanwhile, the race-inspired Verona side blade extensions are designed to improve downforce and airflow around the supercar and behind the front wheels.

XPEL Ultimate and Stealth BMW Paint Protection Films
The difference between XPEL's Ultimate and Stealth products appears to be finish-as in Ultimate ends up glossy while Stealth finishes matte. Both are characterized as virtually invisible, self-healing urethane films (thanks to elastomeric polymers-science!), and XPEL offers a range of computer-designed, precision-cut patterns to fit most BMWs. For front-end coverage or protecting the entire vehicle's paint, XPEL recommends pro installation; the company offers a network of sanctioned installers in 36 countries and 50 U.S. states. Both Ultimate and Stealth carry a 10-year warranty.

Bilstein BMW E30 M3 Group N Dampers
Not strictly for Group N, so-called "showroom class" competition (a run group heavily limited in modifications), Bilstein's dampers are also suitable for track days or just flooring it through a twisty section on your everyday commute. Each unit is hand-finished in Bilstein's German factory, using the latest in gas pressure technology and inverted monotube construction, and goes through a full dyno analysis before getting signed off by test drivers and engineers at both the Nurburgring as well as the company's Papenburg test facility.

European car gear milltek sport bmw f32 428 performance exhaust system Photo 8/13   |   European Car Gear Milltek Sport Bmw F32 428 Performance Exhaust System

Milltek Sport BMW F32 428 Performance Exhaust System
This hand-finished stainless steel exhaust comes in a couple of different configurations. For max power gains, you'll want to go with the large-bore downpipe, "de-catted" version (as in no catalytic converter), which can be ordered with a high-flow sports cat if you're interested in staying within the law when you're off the track; additionally, it features 3-inch plumbing. A cat-back system is also available, which upgrades the rear of the car to include a dual exit GT90 trim set. This 435i-style dual-outlet can be ordered either resonated or non-resonated and requires the 435i M Sport rear valance from a BMW dealer to fit; tailpipe trims can be ordered as either Cerakote black or polished. Those looking for a more OEM look and who wish to keep the original 428 valance can select the twin outlet cat-back style, complete with GT76 trims, again in either Cerakote or polished.

BendPak MD-6XP Mid-rise Lift
Most of us would love to add a car lift to our home garage, but cost, space, and practicality all seem to get in the way. The BendPak MD-6XP is a mid-rise lift that is able to lift your car up to 48 inches in the air in just 45 seconds, while being compact enough to fit entirely underneath most vehicles when not in use. The MD-6XP has a max capacity of 6,000 pounds, making it heavy duty enough for most family sedans or SUVs-a good bargaining tool when convincing your significant other. The lift runs off a standard 115V electrical socket (a nice bonus) and the hydraulic pump stows on a cart that doubles as a jack to move the lift around your workspace. $1,955

There is no denying Seiji Ookawara's Nissan Silvia is a head-turner. It's extremely low, it's extremely wide, and has a ludicrous amount of negative camber that screams for attention.
