Jlevi SW CSP | 5 Minute Photo Shoot White M3

Hello all,

Hope you're ready for some quick photos we shot of Joel's beautiful white E90 M3.

Joel is both a loyal customer of Jlevi as well as a longtime friend of several staff members. Naturally, when he picked up his killer 2011 M3, we couldn't wait to get going on mods for him.

We've completed the first phase of this car, namely, the small and un-invasive upgrades, right out of the gate. To document the car's progress, we have stopped to take some quick photos for you all. (Shot with a Nikon D5000, 18-55mm Kit Lens - we didn't pull out the stops at all, in case you are wondering).

Stay tuned as we delve into performance upgrades, wheels, and much more in the near future. We'll have to leave it up to Joel to decide when and what!


Mods to Date:
  • Vorsteiner Front Lip
  • Vorsteiner Type II Rear Diffuser
  • BMW Performance Decklid Spoiler
  • Matte Black Kidney Grills
  • Carbon Fiber Side Grilles
  • Matte Black Hood Vents
  • Bimmian Painted Bumper Reflectors
  • High Output LED Sidemarkers
  • Matte Black Monochrome M3 badge
  • WeissLicht Angel Eye Upgrades
  • WeissLicht LED Turn Signals (PY24 White)
  • AutoCarbon Carbon Fiber Mirror Covers
Thanks for Reading!

What's up everyone. Just wanted to update you all with some pics of this car's exhaust install. Believe me when I tell you that Joel thought long and hard, and did TONS of research when he started his quest to find the perfect exhaust. Ultimately he decided on Active Autowerke's Signature exhaust, and I do believe he's pretty happy with his decision. Here's a quick list of the mods that have gone onto this car since our original post, and then on to the pics!!
  • 15% Window Tint
  • Hardwired Valentine One Radar Detector
  • Vorsteiner Interior Floormats with White Piping
  • Active Autowerke Signature Exhaust


Some shots of the exhaust while still in the box.










Close up shot of one of the tips.




Some shots of the stock exhaust.












And the install begins...










Lining up the new system with the stock exhaust to make sure right and left side are installed properly.








Out with the old, and in with the new.


















What install is complete without the unwaivering "support" from the GF or Wife?? Clearly they're just THRILLED to be here!!!






New system in, and just making final tweaks to get spacing and alignment right.






Rear diffuser re-installed, tips aligned again, and down she comes!!




We ran out of daylight during the install so these last few pics are a bit dark. We'll get some well lit ones up for you guys shortly but until then, see what it looks like under cover of darkness.










Smiles all around when we got this thing on the ground and fired it up for the first time. Sounds like a V8 should sound with a nice throaty tone, all while not being overwhelming. All in all this was a pretty simple plug and play install with no fitment issues, and solid customer satisfaction. Definitely a winning upgrade to any M3!!

Wheels are on the docket for this car some time in the future so we will update again once those are decided upon. Until then, as always, thanks for reading!!

Thanks again for putting up with my constant back and forth over which exhaust I wanted you guys to order for me! Everything turned out great and I am VERY happy with my decision to go with Active Autowerke. The system sounds amazing and I can't say enough about the quality! Loud and deep in the low RPMs, but screams in the higher RPMs. I was worried about it setting off car alarms in my parking garage, but I woke up this morning and fired her up with no alarms going off! Couldn't be happier with my decision and I would definitely recommend the JLevi and Active Autowerke combination to anyone, solid customer focused companies on both ends! Hopefully we'll get a video up on here in the next couple days or this weekend!

Here's a quick shot of the Vorsteiner floormats in this car. The white piping really highlights the interior, and accents the exterior perfectly.
