I want to see the BMW Individual Paint tag under the hood. I'm curious to know how they denote the name of the paint when its not a BMW paint.

I thought the same thing, then figured I would just stick with the OE coloring.

The car has Brembo 380mm front and rear. And... the ESS VT2 kit I have is a little different than average.

Streets is my old stomping ground. I may have to do the 12th!

There might be one floating around.


Thanks for the all the comments guys! As Nate said, I built this car myself in my garage. I documented the whole build and I plan on showing you how I went from stock to this green monster over the course of a few months. The ESS SC I installed is not your average kit and I have beefed up the car to handle it. But, I will cover that more in depth, as well as the rest of the mods that you cannot see, in my build thread.

Thanks!
Jason

I got the idea when I saw a "speed yellow" M3 which is another Porsche color. After seeing Meaner than Hell, I knew the color would look great!

Thanks... one of the accidental unique choices was not painting the reflectors. I actually planned on painting them but ran out of time before the shoot. Then as Ilia, AJ and I were looking at the car, I realized I like the reflectors orange. Im weird though.

I agree, they work with the green. Plust if you ever change your mind, it will be an easy change to make.

Wow, you have great taste. Do you plan on changing the calipers to make it stand out? Or change the lettering color? I can't wait to see the through write up.

The IND guys and I talked about the Brembos and decided to go with an understated black with black chrome lettering.
