MY 2011 MW Build Begins... E9x M3 Part II + Historical Build Photos

It hasn't even been a full year since the departure of my previous E90 M3 after driving some various vehicles in between the short duration, I missed the daily duties, high-rev V8 and the modern technology amenities so I couldn't resist when I saw this beauty sitting on the lot @ Long Beach BMW. It was a bit more in terms of price & options of what I wanted but I will give it up to Will Shaw @ LB BMW for making some magic happen for me... no b*lls*it

2011 Mineral White/ Black
DCT
ZCP (I know a waste for someone modifying but waiting sucks too...)
Premium, etc...
blah blah blah... you get the picture

Like how I do with any of my other daily driver/ project cars, I try to waste a minimal amount of time getting started and attacking the areas that I do not like out of the box.

Being in the apparel & sneaker business, everything has to sit proper and clean and the condition and style of way my car is represented is an extension of myself. I am fortunate enough to have a shop that can withstand my pickiness, time frames and constant email bombing from me

This time around, I hooked up with EAS Family to get this build started. The objective on this E92 isn't to build the most powerful or the gaudiest of CF & FRP body parts all around. I had simple objectives and I knew my modding would be a culmination of compromises, comfort and reliability. An oxymoron for anyone that knows what is involved with car tuning these days...

1) daily driving practicality 2) clean aesthetics, as Tom @ EAS says to me all the time, "less is more" and 3) and still FUN @ 3-4x a year track duties

BUT....

That all changed when SEMA 2011 came around and phase 2 then 3 followed... Like all my other previous projects, my creativity and boredom took over and here you go!
