The interior Carbon work is great, nice seats and roll cage.

I’m not normally a negative poster, but since you set this up as a mega project, I guess I’m more critical of it than other private mods.

From the start, all that work just to get a factory color? Why not a custom color? Personal choice, and impatient customer I guess.

So you basically killed all cooling to the driver’s side front brake by blocking most of the duct with the air intake filter, that’ll be great on the track.

Why didn’t you install the roll bar before painting, to make certain the color was an exact match? Could have been a timing issue I guess.

If the Ericsson doors take 8 weeks to make and import and you got them in 2, were they the demo set?

It’s an auto!?! Again, personal customer choice I guess.

If you wanted oil and water temps, why didn’t you install the BMW Performance LED wheel (the only manufacturer that I know of other than Ferrari that offers a wheel with rev indicators) which already has oil and water temp display, rather than the completely non-stock looking Stack gauges?

So at the end of the day, from the outside it’s a factory color, with bolt on wheels/brakes/exhaust/coilovers.......

And this is supposed to compete with Enzo Ferrari’s personal legacy? Fail.

Sorry, mostly nice mod job, but with the above as your target, and unlimited budget, not feeling it.

I know time was an issue, but no engine mods other than a bolt on supercharger/exhaust, or did you just not list them?

P.S. Opening line: “Humanity has been obsessed with time since the dawn of history.” History by definition is recorded events in time. So, in other words, we’ve been obsessed with time since the dawn of time. lol

Again, interior work is great. Maybe I'm just in a bad mood, and/or hyper critical. Not my car, not my project. And if he's got all the $ in the world and doesn't car, all the better.

In my mind when you're building a full tear down, exclusive project, the possibility of a stock car rolling up beside with a few bolt on mods and from the outside looking EXACTLY the same, should be zero.

Insane! Absolutely amazing work; now I am pissed I decided not to go to bimmerfest. Would have loved to see it in person.

It's not an auto, it is a dual clutch transmission. It is faster than a 6-speed manual especially around a track. If I could go back and change a few things on my M3 purchase it would have been to get a different exterior color and a DCT tranny.

That is the color the customer wanted and he didn't want to wait the 6 months to a year it would take for a Individual Atlantis order. Also I am sure the owner saw and liked the color on the IND Atlantis Sedan.

That never was a brake duct.......... it originally was a duct leading into the airbox!

I am sure the paint was probably all mixed at the same time not to mention it would be next to impossible to notice the difference in shade since it is not sitting right next to another body panel in the same color with a hard transition ...... like a door next to a fender

The owner probably didn't like the BMW Performance steering wheel...... I personally find the digital display on it looks cheesy.

Are there any type of wheels/brakes/exhaust/coilovers that aren't bolt on?

You can do any project to any extent and if someone wants to spend the money, they can duplicate it.

I for one know that when you work with IND they do whatever you ask them to do.......The sky is the limit and I am sure this project was no different. With IND you never hear the words no "we can't get that" or "we can't do that".

You are entitled to your opinion but from my point of view a lot of your comments don't make sense to me. This is what the customer wanted and that is what he got!
