Full house @ Motorsport24

Aside from access to some of the most unique and well made racing parts in the world, working with Motorsport 24 as their exclusive North American distributor has the added benefit of access to some amazing eye candy! The staff at Motorsport 24 had a full shop this weekend, and sent us this amazing photo.

Such a sick host of cars!

I love the hood on the AW E92 M3. Does that car have their crazy CF Airbox?

all these projects are outstanding.

M enthusiasts should just ship their cars to IND, direct deposit their paychecks to IND's bank account, and let them work on the car sight unseen

Like father like son by IND



Most of us can remember enjoying a hobby with our fathers growing up. Whether itís fishing, sports, or anything else, our memories of our time with our fathers are often some of the fondest memories of our youth. One of our clients was fortunate enough to continue enjoying a hobby with his father well into his adulthood, and the cars we showcase today are a father and son project.

The younger of the two has an incredible ESS supercharged E92 M3, complete with Brembo brakes, KW coilovers, a full exhaust system, and HRE P40S wheels with a brushed finish. His father chose a matching white Porsche 997 Carrera Cabriolet with the same HRE P40S wheels.

http://ind-style.com/2012/04/02/500-miles/




















Toronto, Ontario is exactly 556 miles away from IND Distribution. According to Google that's a 9 and a half hour trip in a car, a two day trip by bicycle, or a 6 day journey for those of us brave enough to make the crossing on foot.

Only a hundred years ago a 550 mile trip was not something to be taken lightly- it was more likely to be a permanent relocation than a short outing. Those embarking on such a journey would usually never return to their point of origin.

So why would our client (Gkap on this forum) push through cities like Detroit, Michigan and Gary, Indiana to install wheels, a trunk, and a front lip and diffuser combination? Couldn't a shop in Toronto do that, without the grueling trek across industrial America?

Gkap tells me that for him a trip like this is not about the end product, but rather the experience. Visiting Chicago with a friend, exploring the city, and making friends with the staff at IND along the way is what counts for him. Rather than obsess over the finished product that his M3 might one day become, Gkap is more interested in the memories he'll gain while working the create the M3 of his dreams.

The way this M3 is modified can be seen as a representation of that outlook. There are without a doubt more extensively modified E9x M3 cars in the US but outpacing these cars is not our client's concern. Gkap was able to maintain a crystal clear focus on his own ideal vision of an M3, and this vision reflects in the car's absolutely classic look.

Gkap chose tasteful restraint, intentionally skipping parts that others might have added and created a truly timeless BMW as a result. The Arkym front lip and Challenge Sport rear diffuser were finished in IND's gloss black for an understated appearance worthy of the 20 inch silver BBS LM wheels destined to fill the M3's wheel arches. A Vorsteiner trunk gives the rear of the car a now classic look, while an all white paint scheme maintains the car's minimalist theme. Gkap intentionally kept the M3 emblem off of the trunk to ensure that nothing interfered with the simple lines. PSS10 coilovers provide the perfect ride height, placing the car just over it's Michelin PS2s.

While all of these parts would have made for a great M3 on their own, our client knew that something was missing. He knew we had to improve the appearance of the headlights and we immediately made a call to OSS. We knew our schedule would be extremely tense as the car would only be at IND for four days, so we had to work quickly. Within hours of the car's arrival here at IND the headlights were removed and sent to OSS with overnight service. Luis at OSS made some spectacular moves to immediately add his touches to the M3's lighting, and sent them back just in time for an install just two days later.

Finally by Thursday the car was complete and our only remaining task was to enjoy it. After taking a day trip to photograph the car we made our final arrangements and sent Gkap on his way. Gkap is a great type of car enthusiast- he knows that great cars are made even better by the experience they give you and the friends they help you make along the way. Here's to great cars, great friends, and great experiences!

Sweating the small stuff

http://ind-style.com/2012/04/17/swea...e-small-stuff/



The phrase ďGod is in the detailĒ has grown in relevance in my own life since the day we began developing IND many years ago. Iíve realized that when modifying a car, you are not merely adding parts, you are developing the details.

The owner of this E70 X5 35d is someone who understands that any car starts as a blank canvas and is not truly complete without these details. Although this X5 is not intended to compete with itís M brothers our client added some key touches to make the truck truly his own.

IND braved some new ground to perfect this X5. As this is a performance diesel engine we knew a gauge package would be an important tool. Because there is no off the shelf gauge solution for the X5, every step of the process involved custom work. A gauge pod was fabricated from sheet metal to fit perfectly in place of the ash tray, and finished in a high gloss black to integrate seamlessly into the interior. On the engine side a custom fitting was fabricated to interface with the Exhaust Gas Temperature probe, a barbed fitting was integrated into the carís piping for a boost pressure reading, and an oil temperature sending unit was installed in the carís oil system.

The complete interior trim was removed and refinished in Ferrariís Grigio Silverstone color, accented by a stripe of the carís original silver trim to integrate the new color scheme into the existing door pulls and shifter surround of the car. The 35dís green nature was something we felt we had to acknowledge, and we did so by adding our IND logo in a bright green color.

The exterior of the car was kept simple by again only changing details where it was critical. The wheels are finished in the beautiful Grigio Silverstone color, while black and green logos were added in place of the original chrome badges. Even the X5 logo on the trunk was changed from the original large badge to a smaller more elegantly sized X5 badge from the X5M. X5 V8 exhaust tips were retrofitted and powdercoated black to give the rear of the car a more sporting appearance.

Our finished product is something all of us at IND and the owner of this car can be proud of. This X5 is one that may pass for a factory original car to the untrained observer, but to the initiated it is a car that represents a tasteful sense of restraint and an appreciation that nothing is complete without itís details.

Enjoy the photos!

Beautiful photos. I'm curious what you guys use for your lighting setup. Large soft boxes? (referring to the well-lit studio shots)

Don't tell him that! He is getting a little cocky now so I always tell him to do better shots

Is that what those things were!? Amazing how good the shots were given that it was late-ish in the day and overcast.

Can't wait to do it again. Easy drive really and I love the greater Chicago area. Although I think the whole area is bad for my wallet. ; )

Liquid Fusion Lincolnshire by iND (Grand Opening)

True automotive enthusiasts are usually relegated to the local coffee shops or bookstore cafes for a relaxing coffee or snack, where the only high performance allowed was inside your beverage -- until now. On September 23rd at 1:00pm the IND Group will be formally unveiling a new Liquid Fusion Cafe in Lincolnshire, an offshoot of the original and highly regarded Liquid Fusion Cafe in Northbrook. A unique aspect of this new location is that it will feature a car-themed appearance, including classic photos of IND's various creations and client projects over the years.

As you'll notice on Yelp or anywhere else, the Liquid Fusion Cafes serve some of the best Bubble Tea in the Chicago area, so you can be certain the very same quality you've come to know and love will be present here. One legendary mantra is "No Frozen Fruit Ever!", so of course all fresh fruit is cut every single morning and your taste buds reap the benefits. In addition, Illy coffee from Italy will grace their menu. If you've ever had the pleasure of enjoying Bubble Tea or Illy coffee, you are most likely already craving either or both!

In fact, the concept for IND as a company was actually formed over drinks at the original Northbrook location, so the genesis comes full circle as IND opens their own cafe in Lincolnshire. Future events will include local meets, "Cars & Coffee" weekends, and other automotive-related events.

The all-new Liquid Fusion Cafe is located at 275 Parkway Drive, Suite 315 in Lincolnshire, IL 60069. Officially, the Grand Opening will take place on September 23rd at 1:00pm. We hope to see you there!
