Last time I clicked your thread, I went on a binge and burned a couple of thousand $ modifying my E92 M3. You sir, are a menace.

Absolutely one of my favorite BMW's out there right now!

I got to be honest, when I met you a couple years ago and you said you were doing a "full" CSL I kinda doubted you because I've heard it a million times. Boy was I wrong!

Awesome job Adam!

*Hope to make it out to the Airfield event if the slots are not all taken already!

I did want to share one image that proves the fiance / soon to be wife at this point is allowed to drive the M3. Granted she does not like that much because it has the SMG system. She preferred to drive the 1M as it is a proper manual car. Images was taken and a social event in August at a parking garage in Down town Sacramento.



It is not December 2012 and I loaded all the parts into the M3 and the fianc’s Subaru. This is the last image of the car in its current configuration all be as it is transformed into a US Spec CSL car.

What a complete animal. Dare I say one of the best sounding S54 I've ever heard.

2013 The Transformation Begins

From December 2012 until February 2013, the car was in surgery. The shop I took the car to was kind enough to take images of some of the work as they did it. I need to give a major kudos to the shop for doing the work and doing an AMAZING job.

IPB-Autosport - Audi, Porsche, BMW, Mini, VW Specialist.
Address: 1206 C St, Sacramento, CA 95814
Phone: 916-453-1465

They made it all come together and highly recommend you spend the money to have them do any CSL work you need. Sorry for the death by images but this is my journal after all.

Install of the CSL Intake
