MOTIV Motorsport was founded to provide the highest quality products for the turbocharged BMW platform. True passion for the automotive industry drives MOTIV Motorsport to ensure quality and reliability. Innovative research and design, along with extensive testing of all products on the track and the road sets MOTIV apart from the competition.
Jake Hershorin and Bobby Downes founded MOTIV with the goal of bringing high quality performance parts to specific BMW platforms. Jake has been tuning on multiple platforms for years. With a background in standalones and flash tuning, calibrating the N54 was a natural fit. After cofounding proTUNING Freaks a few years ago, he saw a need for high quality, high performance parts to power the numerous N54 and N55 cars they were calibrating. Bobby has been into cars since before he can even remember. Just like his father, his desire to make fast cars faster was a passion. After picking up a 2008 135i with the intention of turning it into an all-out NASA time attack car, his passion to continue building performance parts for the track grew. The track car was a project Bobby took on in order to display the level of craftsmanship and performance he is known for.
Together, Jake and Bobby have created a team. While they have a ton of expertise they still consider themselves enthusiasts who simply want to make fast cars the right way – reliably and efficiently. How is this done? Proper R&D and testing until a product meets our extremely strict standards.
We get just as excited about every project and every tune we do. From tuning a stock turbo car to full single turbo projects – we love seeing our customers enjoy their cars new level of performance. We offer a variety of brands when it comes to bolt on modifications and a full list of tuning services for the N54 and N55 plaftorms.
