Fasten your seat belt! This old 3 series BMW Station Wagon is one of the quickest E91’s you ever will see. Don’t believe it?
Under the bonnet the BMW 3 series has got some new found horsepower that was achieved by more than just a new ECU flash tune. This isn’t just an ordinary 330d anymore. Our German KW Performance Partner, BBM Motorsport, chose the path of perfect German engineering. They swapped the old M57D30TÜ2 diesel engine for the N57D30S1! If BMW engine codes are an alien concept for you, it’s okay, we can help you. BBM Motorsport installed the 381 hp 3.0 litre Diesel engine out of the fearsome BMW M550d xDrive!
Even stock, this engine with its three (3!) turbos can’t stop shredding tires! But BBM modified the “Diesel Monster” a little bit by re-flashing the ECU with software. And they did quite a good job.
If you’re brave enough to put the pedal to the metal, you just might hurt yourself! 850 Newtonmeters of torque is pure “Schwarzenegger Power”! It’s huge and absolutely kills driveshafts! The Germans had to install the driveshaft from their Rondel brethren, the BMW M3 (E92) and attached a limited slip differential (Zero Slip = 100%)!
In case of an emergency you can try to catch the BMW quite fast via six piston front and four piston rear brake system! For fast corner speed without worry our customer installed none other than a KW Clubsport 3-way kit. This is not simply a KW Variant 3 kit with top mounts, adjustable rebound and dual compression valves. We are KW, when we say clubsport, it means you get real KW racing suspension technology tested and fine-tuned on race tracks around the world!
Linear race springs, competition valve technology, race-grade bump stops, adjustability to suite even the most seasoned racer (completely indpendent rebound, low speed and high speed compression) all packed in a nice stainless steel strut. The perfect kit to conquer Laguna Seca with a Station Wagon!
The BBM 350D 3T may have only 440 hp but it can hit 0 – 100 km/h (0 – 62 mph) in 4.9 sec; from 100 km/h – 200 km/h just takes 9.8 sec before reaching the top speed of 296 km/h (stock 330d 250 km/h) and we are talking about a Diesel…
