Brilliant White E90 M3 v2.0

People asked what more could you do to this car when I bought it... well here it is and the modding doesn't even stop yet!

The car has been running great so far with new low compression forged motor from ESS Tuning. Hopefully we'll have the fuel system in to finish the VT3 and pump out some more power out of this baby.

Full Alcantara interior and so much carbon fiber makes me feel like I'm driving an exotic every time I get in it.

Big thanks to HG Motorsports in San Diego for all the support and turning my vision of this M3 into a reality.

List of new upgrades:
- HG Motorsports weld in roll cage
- ESS Low compression built engine
- One Eighty custom headlights
- Recaro Sportster CS seats
- Recaro seat backing done in 4x4 V weave with frozen clear
- Complete interior in alcantara with custom stitching
- Custom interior trim in 4x4 carbon with frozen clear
- BMW Performance V2 steering wheel with electronics
- White LED side markers & monochrome side emblems

List of prior upgrades:
- HRE P44 SC wheels in battleship grey
- Challenge 4x4 Carbon V-weave roof
- Challenge 4x4 Carbon V-weave mirrors
- Challenge 4x4 Carbon V-weave trunk
- Eisenmann inconnel axle back exhaust
- Akrapovic GT4 x pipe
- Brembo BBK
- KW Clubsport Suspension
- White LED interior lights
- Vorsteiner GTS5 front bumper
- ESS VT2 625 supercharger

Whoa! That is one sick E90, I really like the white with grey wheels and the aqua accent color everywhere. That interior is impressive.

That interior - it's to die for!
Love the mint green accents - especially (gonna sound stupid) those scoops on the front bumper! (Whatever they're called)

WOW your car looks great, she's changed sooo much since the time that you picked her up from biglare.
I love all of the Tiffany Blue accents that you've got going on and all that alcantara is just...
Keep up the great work, and thanks for sharing the pics!

On the topic of that steering wheel: BMW USA actually do not recommend digital performance steering wheel on M3 DCT. Maybe related to only this funtion which most don't care about and I didn't know it exists?

"Not for M3 vehicles with Dual Clutch Transmissions. If the vehicle has option code S248 the heated steering function will no longer be active after installation"

Love the colour combination but never liked the quilted pattern; just looks tacky to me. Outstanding overall.

I acually work at HG Motorsports and oversaw the ending stages of this build, the shape of the shift paddles is different between DCT and automatic E9x BMWs. The cutouts on the back of the steering wheel where the paddles mount are not the right shape but the mounting holes line up. The M3 style paddles mount just fine and they function properly but if you look at the wheel from behind, you can tell that the cutout is a slightly different shape. We didn't try using the paddles from an automatic 3 series to see if those would work on an M3, I imagine they would since the wiring and connections is the same.

Any special ties to the accent color choice? Formally owned a fiji edition Z3?
