BMW i by iND

Being a car enthusiast in the 21st century brings with it an interesting duality: one typically develops a love for technology and science in a pursuit of better understanding of a modern carís systems, but the more science a modern car enthusiast understands in pursuit of their hobby, the more one is confronted with a stark reality: burning fossil fuels for personal transportation has been a science experiment conducted by billions of people on a global scale, with consequences that are uncertain at best and absolutely dire at worst.

The realities of internal combustion are not lost on BMW, and although no auto maker in the world loves the sports car more than BMW, the brand has embraced alternative fuels, electric vehicles, and hybrids. Since BMWís early attempts at hydrogen burning engines in their Hydrogen 7 concept, BMW engineers have resolutely pursued the future of the automobile.

The advent of BMWís i vehicles has ushered in a new era of environmentally conscious technology. It should come as no surprise that the BMW version of the environmentally friendly automobile is not simply an appliance made only for commuting, but rather a machine with soul that expresses passion and a love for the automobile, even while standing still. Ultra high efficiency electric and hybrid cars are here to stay, and all of us at IND are grateful that BMW has taken on the challenge.

As always, when BMW breaks new ground, we at IND do our best to follow suit. We have done everything possible to create new parts for the i3 and i8 cars with our technology partners, and are working hard to create a full host of components designed to help the BMW i enthusiast personalize their cars. INDís i program is expanding steadily, and we are proud to introduce our interpretations of the BMW i.

IND i3:
IND painted reflectors
3D Design front lip, gloss black
Gloss black foglight surrounds
Gloss black front bumper slats
Carbon fiber mirror caps
Gloss black grille surrounds

Cobra lowering springs

HRE 303 M wheels, ilectric blue outer barrel and face, gloss charcoal inner barrel

IND i8:
IND painted reflectors

Cobra lowering springs

HRE S101 wheels, gloss charcoal outer barrel and face, ilectric blue inner barrel

I can say with absolute confidence that Ferdinand Porsche could not have possibly fathomed a creation like the Porsche 918. Even the best science fiction writers of his day could not have envisioned a vehicle with this level of performance. Silent drive, a 2.2 second 0-60 time, CFRP chassis, a combined hybrid drive fuel economy of 67 miles per gallon, these figures would have sounded like nonsense to a citizen of 1950s Europe.

Even in 2015, experiencing a 918 in person is akin to encountering alien technology for the first time. Forget the science fiction exterior styling, the incredibly elegant center console, the exhaust outlets placed directly behind the driverís and passengerís heads- the sheer sound of the car during start up and idle is enough to terrify a layperson. The lack of sound in all electric mode completes the experience, and gives the distinct impression that the technology contained within the aerodynamic body of the 918 is not of this earth.

Simply encountering a 918 in person is a privilege, but the chance to personalize and photograph one for its owner is a truly once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

The HRE P101 wheels seen on this 918 were discussed, selected, and planned long before this incredible car was delivered to its owner. In fact, this 918's owner had the wheels installed at Porsche's facility, prior to taking delivery of the car! Their gloss black finish was an excellent accompaniment to the black stripe work on the car, which itself is an homage to the Porsche Salzburg team of the late 60s and early 70s.

We were thrilled to install this set of P101s on our clientís 918, ultimately proving that even when one owns something as unique as number 512 of 918 of the ultimate Porsche hyper car, there is always a drive to make a sports car your own. Enjoy the photos!

New Dakar Yellow E92 M3 project



Quote:
Originally Posted by Ilia@IND View Post


The E92 M3 in many ways marked the end of an era. The 21st century brought with it incredible technological progress, but also a renewed sense of urgency for caring for the environment. Automakers in every corner of the world have adapted their philosophies to better reflect humanityís needs, and while the sports car is not extinct, different approaches must be relied upon to deliver the thrills motoring enthusiasts are accustomed to.

Simply put, the simple formula that defined BMW M for thirty years is now a thing of the past. The E92 M3 is the last M car made to rely on a now classic approach to engineering a sports car: a high RPM, normally aspirated motor in front, a great transmission in the center, and a mechanical differential in the rear. Coupled with incredibly dynamic but incredibly easy to drive suspension, BMWís E92 M3 was truly the final iteration of a design philosophy that started with the E30 M3 so many years ago.

INDís Portfolio program has always been focused on consulting with our clients to express their individual style to create something special. In the case of this M3, the carís own personality defined both its modifications and its resulting feel. The Dakar Yellow paint and Varis diffuser system are both extroverted, and a good fit for the personality of the engine beneath this carís hood. While 8,300 RPM redlines and 550 ESS supercharged horsepower have become the norm in the E92 M3 community, rest assured that the resulting acceleration is anything but restrained.

In contrast, the FI wheels, Akrapovic Evolution exhaust, Brembo GT kit, and RKP GTS style front lip are staples of the E92 chassis. Each has been proven to have not only a beautiful appearance, but excellent functionality in even the harshest on-track conditions. INDís own yellow seat belts add color to the black interior, while the Awron gauge displays the S65 engineís key vitals at a glance. Finally, DownForce side skirts and headlights modified by OSS round out this M3, creating a machine that is simultaneously classic in itís styling, and extroverted enough to effectively wear itís yellow paint. Bilstein B16 suspension gives the car superior road holding, and a lower stance to boot.

Our client has more plans for this fantastic E92, and will continue to develop his car into a creation that celebrates the end of an epoch for BMW and stands on itís own as one of BMW Mís greatest accomplishments. Together with AutoCouture (who has supported both IND and this client throughout this project), Deans Performance (who has dyno tested this M3), OSS (who created the incredible headlights), and other partners, this yellow M3 has been transformed into a timeless performance car.

Modifications include:

Akrapovic Evolution exhaust system
ESS VT2-625 supercharger kit
RKP GTS front lip
Varis upper and lower diffuser
European M3 bumper
DownForce carbon side skirts
OSS headlights
BBS FI wheels, custom pinstriped
Yellow seat belts
Awron Kompressor 1 gauge
Brembo 380mm GT kit
Bilstein B16 suspension

Enjoy the photos!
