Garage List
Recaro Pole Positions

Next we moved to the interior with a pair of Recaro Pole Positions in full leather loaded with Macht Schnell hardware - with a Macht Schnell OC3 module to keep the electronics happy with the new seats.









Stock M3 seat weight


Recaro Pole Position weight (unloaded)


Recaro Assembly layout - parts verification


OEM Seatbelt recepticle into MS Floormount with supplied bracket




Recaro Pole Position (loaded)






Comparison of Recaro and stock M3 seat




Total weight savings was 70lbs over factory seats with a more planted feel & improved feedback from the vehicle during spirited driving.

Garage List
Stri Gauges & Macht Schnell Ashtray Panel

While inside the cabin area, we moved onto gauge installation. Items installed are the following:

Stri - Voltmeter 52mm Digital Stepper Drive (DSD) Series, Black Dial/White LED
Stri - Oil Pressure 52mm Digital Stepper Drive (DSD) Series, Black Dial/White LED
Stri - Water Temperature 52mm Digital Stepper Drive (DSD) Series, Black Dial/White LED
Macht Schnell - e9x 3-series ashtray gauge panel


Installation pictures follow, you can also see a continuation of the Rogue Octane SSK when the center console trim was removed for panel installation:





















While amber is available, ATI chose while LED specially for this build.

Gauges are non-functional at the moment (with exception of voltmeter) as new sending unit bosses are being machined and will be installed shortly after SEMA.

not a huge fan of the gauges... something digital would have been sweet. Just my .2, over all the car is awesome... those seats rock my socks off.

Garage List
eas Signature Fibre Underhood Package

Next we turned our attention to under the hood. Part of a personal peeve, most SEMA builds concentrate on the exterior while leaving the engine bay relatively stock. We convinced ATI that underneath the hood needed to have as much attention as the exterior, leaving only one choice - eas Signature Fibre in 1x1 matte finish.

Only a handful of M3s have this finish, including our own S/C project build.

Studio Shots






Installation




















Parts are not destined to be flashy, commanding respect rather than begging for attention.
