at first i thought a LSB E90 M3 was trailing me on the road until i realized it was taped up for the long drive. it was an absolute treat to see this car in person on the highway with a mere 42 miles on the clock - nice chatting with you Justin amidst the Chicago traffic, haha. enjoy the car...it looks fantastic!

Mike,

I knew it was you when I saw you in my rear view mirror!! Your car looks as awesome as ever. Coming up to St Louis shortly. Break-in procedure is quite hard on a long trip like this, but we will manage.

Just an update for everyone, seems as if nothing goes as planned. Incorrect rear shock bushings kept the suspension from being installed...bummed about that since I had connections to get them in time, but such is life. The car is simply amazing. Great job IND and BMW!!!

Photos to come, don't worry....

Mike, your car looked amazing on the highway. I've got photos loading now that maybe Justin can steal the links and put up what he wants. I tried to process in pseudo-IND style. Pleasure to meet you guys.

looking for our route:


the train


the ride, the anticipation, and the brother who doesn't follow the rules

See that Black Sapphire E90 328i in the background? My fiance and I test drove that car just as you guys started taping up your car. We ended up leasing that e90 328i. I also ordered a Jerez Black e92 M3...the wait begins!

I had LM-Rs on my e46 M3...and I may go that route on the e92. Not sure yet.

Your car looks sick and congrats on the ride!

I remember you guys (but I couldn't pick you out of a lineup or anything). She said something or other about Justin's car as you guys walked by.

I just got home from meeting Justin halfway from Tulsa to OKC with his car w/ 3M Crystalline tint all the way around and shield installed on most of it. I'm sure he's ecstatic to have his new baby back home. Congrats, JP.

She was helping me decide on wheels and was admiring his car!

I'm lucky

Great choices on the mods, the car looks amazing

I find the subtle mods you did very similar to another E90 M3 that IND did, I think the owner of that one is from Canada

Yes, that guy has great taste! I just wish I could have decided on an individual color combo that I was willing to spend the extra money on and hadn't already been done by the Canadian and Texan

Not quite. Euro front bumper to delete the headlight washers and reflectors and the suspension left to go. You don't happen to know your alignment specs, would you? I'm praying these tires don't rub like crazy.
