It's done by a specialized company in Germany; the carbon factory. They can do pretty much any part you wish. I am waiting for delivery of carbon mirror covers, the vents in the hood and the trunk spoiler. It is BTW real carbon fibre overlay.

That's good to hear. What makes you say the functionality is consistent with OEM behaviour though? Have you driven your car in non-modified and modified versions hard on the backroads or a track? I don't mean to challenge you on this. I'm just trying to understand where you are coming from as this is a mod I am considering. Also, do you have vendor data on the stiffness of the new springs, and how that compares to the stiffness of the stock springs?

Talking Car looks great excellents pics

I love what you did to your M3 I plan to do the same thing to mine with Hamann kit spoilers in the front on the roof and in the rear and 20 inch chrome rims with 305/25 ZR20 tires in the rear. Your car is sweet dude same color I have on order keep posting more pics. Keep adding stuff to your M3 until your heart is content. Don't worry about some of the haters you just do what you got to do.

I have driven the car with and without the Hartge springs. Not on a track, but when using EDC the ride hardness does change in the same manner. And the car behaves in the same way with the advantage of a lower centre of gravity. If you need more technical details I suggest you email hartgeverkauf2@hartge.de and write to Jorg.

Not yet, but should have those by the end of this month. In the meantime if you search on youtube for M3 E92 Hamann (=supersprint) you can hear the exhaust on a different M3.

Nice drop and front kidney grills. The wheels look a bit too "bling" in my opinion.

Hamann and the SuperSprint I am referring to are two different brands. Are you saying it sounds like the Hamann, not sure i follow you?

This is news to me. My exhaust tips are engraved SuperSprint and was ordered from SuperSprint North America. Is the difference in the Hamman version simply the logo?

Thanks!
