Watch Joe Achilles tweak his BMW M3 G80 competition slightly




If you’ve ever watched any of Joe Achilles’ videos, you know he likes to polish his cars up a bit. He never exaggerates or mods his cars too much, but he always seems to give them an OEM + look and feel; you just need to tweak them slightly to make them feel exactly what they want, as most car enthusiasts do, to be honest. In his latest video, he’s already tinkering with his brand new G80 BMW M3 Competition and is one of the first YouTubers to be seen doing it.

First, Achilles removes the standard Pirelli P Zeros from his M3 and equips them with Michelins. Sorry, Joe, our North American M3s come with Michelin’s right off the bat… He says Michelin’s improve ride comfort right out of the box, which is awesome because the tires usually need a few miles to really get there. adapt and feel good.

After replacing the tires, he bought a pair of 10mm spacers for the BMW M3, something I think it desperately needs from an aesthetic point of view. Forget the grille, I think the most frustrating design of the new M3 is the fact that it doesn’t sit on its wheels as well as it should. Previous M3s had the perfect squat and stance, but this new one just feels a little offbeat and the spacers could really help.

To make sure the struts are working properly and the suspension will work properly afterwards, he also took it to suspension specialists, to get the perfect alignment. Automakers set up their suspensions and alignments well, but never perfectly for spirited driving or track driving (unless it’s a 911 GT3 or something so track-oriented) For a reason. Normal people have to drive these cars on the road, every day, and probably won’t push them as hard as enthusiasts will. So this is an intentional alignment adjustment, not incompetence. But some stores will change this slightly, to give enthusiasts the more balanced and progressive feel that they want but the average shopper might not want.

If you’ve just bought a BMW M3 G80, which many of you probably own, watch this video for some inspiration on what to do with your car.
