Project NGHTHWK | Presented by Active Autowerke

SORRY FOR THE PICTURE SIZE DIFFERENCES.

Rough Drafted image of Project NGHTHWK.



October 3rd, 2010 - I took delivery of a 2009 BMW E92 M3.
Dual Clutch Transmission
Every option possible
3,400 miles


__________________________________________________ _________

November 9th, 2010
Exterior mods
Matte black kidney grills
Matte black side grills
Tinted windows (5,5,5,30,30)
Tinted taillights

Performance mods
BMC Drop-in air filter
RPI Ram Air Scoops



__________________________________________________ __________

December 28th, 2010

Exterior mods
Rotary forged 19" "Nurburgring" lightweight one-piece wheels.

Performance mods
Brand New Michelin PS2's




__________________________________________________ __________

I have been chosen to compete against a C63 on the SPEED Channel on January 8th in Houston, TX. So I have found some sponsors that will help me out to complete Project NGHTHWK.
FUTURE MODS.

January 3rd, AA Pully
January 4th, Active Autowerke Tune, Filter, X-pipe w/ HFC, Exhaust
January 5th, Matte Silver + Red Accents

Thanks to RENNSPEC for the performance mods + install on January 3rd.
Thanks to Dirty Devil Customs for making Project NGHTHWK look like more than just a Melbourne Red BMW.
Thanks to Jeremy at OETuning for helping out!

And last but definitely not least. A HUGE THANK YOU TO OMAR AND THE WHOLE ACTIVE AUTOWERKE TEAM!!!!!!
They hooked up Project NGHTHWK in a huge way!

AA's signature exhaust.
Performance X-Pipe with High Flow Cats.
AA's ECU Tune.
AA Air filter
AND they rush shipped the items and had them installed at "AUTOTALENT" in Los Angeles!

Active Autowerke is definitely where its at if you have a BMW.

________________________________________

Not really feeling any of the exterior mods besides the wheels. LCI tails would have looked better than those tinted ones. Especially if you plan to do red accents on a matte gray finish.

You will put that much red on the front grills?! Personally dont think that will turn out too well either.

I dunno, this whole thing doesnt seem too well thought out yet. When i think of a project M3, i typically think of a higher end parts and a tasteful theme associated with it.

This is the equivalent of a Honda trying to look like a BMW or in your case, a BMW trying to look like a GT3 RS.
Just performance mods and your skills, go get em!

Why would it be like a GT3RS? Those are all a solid bright with dull accents (with exception of the black w/orange). Most people put black grills on their car, yet those dull accents are in theory are more like a GT3RS than mine.

I like it, and thats what matters.

I just submitted myself, and Martin D (the first choice) dropped out. So they sent me an email and I decided to man up and drive 1,600 miles to represent.
