Sensory Overload! Track Inspired E92 M3 Build

Very often, customers will call in and ask for a whole array of parts to be bought for their cars. All the individual parts look great and will probably look great on the car as well, if isolated to that one portion of the car. But, putting multiple parts is tricky. You really need a vision for how you'd like your car to look and make sure that you have a harmonic symbiosis of parts. How will they come together? How will the lines and colors interact with each other?

Mike (username: Mike Lu) came to us with a shopping list of parts. Started small with a front lip, and couple of aesthetic pieces. Very quickly that list snowballed into a full build with suspension, wheels, aero and performance products (for use on both the track and road).

Mike trusted us to make sure that we fully comprehend the styling and performance that he was going for. We absorbed and gave our feedback. We took a few parts of the list or swapped them and played with the color scheme until he was happy with what he thought he was getting. Now, it was our job to make that vision a reality of physical form, fully equipped with the right components that will deliver to its fullest potential on every sensory nerve possible; vision, smell, touch, sound and the mystical one close to heart.

This is what we delivered.







We picked up the car from Michigan and transported it to our location in Illinois. I applaud him for taking that leap of faith and thank him for the support that he has shown. The E92 M3 came pretty stock with just carbon grilles and Eisenmann RACE with Challenge x pipe. We got right to work and started with some custom painted front grilles in matching alpine white, and the side grilles and the inside of the mirror caps were painted in MAG Blue to match the strikingly aggressive MAG Blue 18" TE37 wrapped with Hankook Ventus RS-3. For that perfect stance, KW V3 was deployed.







For down force and styling, Challenge "V" weave front lip, mirror caps and a Voltex Type 1S wing was used. Since a custom base for the Voltex Type 1S wing would have taken too long, we modified a base plate for the EVO to line up with the lines of the E92 trunk.



Kreis-Sieg exhaust was installed with their x-pipe and remote key for opening and closing that valve. With valve fully open you'd scare some old lady to a hear attack on the freeway. Freeway and the track is where this car belongs. Enjoy and thank you Mike!

That looks pretty hot. Not a huge fan of that wing for a street car, but to each their own. Love the mag blue volks and the accents to match on the car. Nice touch!

Stunning!

Would those modified base plates work for the e90m3 as well?? I know the trunk lines are slightly different.

If that is a true track car, I don't mind the wing. For a car that sees most of its action on road, eh.


Other than the tinted tails and the spoiler, I love it!

car looks amazing, but the blue is kinda strange to throw in on a black/white theme- definitely original if anything. And with that spoiler, this car better live at the track or I lulz in it's general direction.

tails are LCI tails. the tint did come out dark but with reason... as they were used from another member and had come scratched. One way to conceal the scratch...
