My 2010 BMW M3 E93 INDIVIDUAL

So the car is lowered with H&R springs and got a set of spacers. Other then that it's OEM except the black grill in the front. My plans for the future is to keep it pretty OEM, i like the original look with that little bit of extra. And maybe a new exhaust.

M3 E93

Hey guys! This is my new 2010 BMW M3 E93 i bought last weekend. It's a individual M3 with a Champagne leather interior and diopsideschwarz metallic paint. Finally bought it after 5 years of daydreaming.

The diopside schwarz metallic color changes from dark grey in the sun to light dark black when it's a bit darker outside. Very hard to get that on the pictures but it is beautiful when you see it in person. I don't like the Jerezblack at all but this color is amazing.

I think it's a bit to low and stiff to drive, Im thinking of buying some other springs in the front, I want it just a little bit higher of the ground. Maybe a different pair of H&R springs.

Are they as stiff as the H&R? Do you have them yourself?

I've never seen that color, but it looks great. If I didn't know any better, I'd say there was a slight gray/green metallic sheen to it.


https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diopside

The above Wikipedia article does seem to support the gray/green thing:

"Commonly light to dark green; may be blue, brown, colorless, white, grey"

Didn't think of that before, it does not look green at all when you see it in person. But on some photos it does! Thanks for the comment.

This was the first time I looked at the car at the dealer here in Sweden, previous owner is an older man who works as a salesman at BMW M cars. I have dreamed about this car over five years and I have always wanted an alpine white with black interior, but after I saw this individual color and interior I changed my mind immediately. It's fully loaded with EDC keyless go etc etc... This is my friend Andre looking at the car.

I do indeed have them myself and love them. Not as stiff / harsh as H&R and you get almost factory suspension travel. As for the drop... It's slightly less (1" & 0.8" from memory) but still looks great!

Great looking E93 and a most unusual colour that I have never seen before - congratulations on finally realising your dream!

Totally agree and I too have the Eibach Pro Kit - they provide a small but noticeable drop from standard and are far easier to live with in terms of ride comfort.

I assume you're based in Sweden but if not let me know as I'm actually selling my Eibachs! Whilst I do love them I've been tempted by some very well priced KW Coilovers...

Indeed! Let me know the best price you can get them for and maybe I can see how much shipping would be to you... who knows, it might just work out cheaper?
