i really like the design of this diffuser, but just hoped the fins were more conservative
it drops down too much for me

on the other hand, this might look perfect paired with the platte forme rear side skirts

... Just a few more mods missing from Andrew at IND's list

- Awron DGA Vent Gauge (Naturally-Aspirated Version)
- Dinan Carbon Fiber Front Strut Tower Brace Set
- Custom-Painted V8 Side Emblems
- Custom-Painted Rear Trunk BMW Roundel Housing in Gloss Black
- Tinted Interior Center Dome Light Lens Cover
- Custom-Painted Extended Billet DCT Shifter Paddles (without Machined Holes)
- Custom ///M Tri-Color Stitched DCT Shift Boot and E-brake Boot
- OEM M3 Trunk Mat in Custom White Piping with Fox Red Stitching
- LUX Backup/Reverse LED's
- Window and Partial Front Windshield Tint
- BPM Sport Stage 1 Engine Tune and DCT Tune (Many thanks to Mike Benvo)

... And the pleasure and honor is all mine, Mr. Andrew at IND First & foremost, my deepest thanks & gratitude goes out to Andrew, who has overseen this entire build from its first inception last Nov. 2013, when the car was purchased brand new (I've always admired & wanted an E93 M3) ... What started off as a simple email inquiring about GTS door sills quickly escalated to mod-after-mod (as everyone on here knows, once you start - you can't stop), which eventually led to me just shipping my car out to iND (the finest form of the mod bug)

As everyone knows, IND needs no introduction: From start to finish, my build took about 6 months, but it was well worth the wait!! IND created a true masterpiece for me, fulfilling every single one of my dreams, and helped solidify their staple as the foremost BEST shop in America. I would not trust anybody but IND to touch any of my cars. Period. ... Furthermore, I would like to give a BIG shout-out to Luis at OSS Designs in Miami, Florida for my unbelievable headlights that are his most insane and complex set to date!!

As Nate at IND hilariously pointed out, there were literally thousands of emails from me to Andrew, asking lots of silly (and sometimes meaningless) questions ... Despite my anal OCD self, Andrew answered every single one of my stupid questions almost immediately with his usual skillful poise and expert knowledge (despite being extremely busy with his normal daily operations). Now that's top-notch customer service, folks!!

I was raised to respect and give thanks to each and every individual who has helped me along the way, and this build is absolutely no exception. Besides both Andrew and Nate (of course), there are many behind-the-scenes team members at IND that truly deserve full recognition and praise from me:
- Jesal and Ilia = Many thanks for all the continual support!!
- Painters: Oscar, Javier, Cesar, and "Billy the Kid" (Pinstripe)
- Technicians: Mike, Al, and especially Luis (for the magic on our rear bumper & rocker panel vents!!)
- Upholstery: Ken and all staff
- Shop Manager: Anthony
- Shipping Dept.: Ryan and Aiden
- Accountant: Anna (thanks for taking ALL of my money ... Just joking)
- Mike@UMG: Your photography and videography skills are unparalleled

Being just a simple and humble guy myself, I want to fully express my thanks, praise, and true appreciation to Andrew and all the fine crew at IND. Your dedication to excellence, doing the right thing, putting customers first, and the relentless pursuit to always be better all make IND truly second-to-none, and I am the luckiest E93 M3 driver ever ... Many thanks again for all the hard work, sweat, and countless hours on my project ... It was definitely worth every penny

On a side note for my fellow forum members, please feel free to PM me any questions you may have regarding my build, and I'll try my best to answer them!! For those of you on Instagram, follow me nice.braces for the latest pictures!! And for those that are not, I'll continually update this thread with new photos!!

Here are a few more from South Florida (for now):

RKP M6 lip released

RKP also worked hard to design this lip for excellent drivability- placing the lowest point of the lip no further than the lowest point of the original BMW bumper.

The RKP M6 front lips are available in 1x1 plain weave, 2x2 twill weave, or any number of custom weave patters, along with matte and gloss carbon finishes. Each lip is hand built from 100% carbon fiber with no additional filler materials used.

Please contact an IND representative for more information!
