Return of the Silver Ghost

For many of our clients, their M3 is not simply a show piece but a true companion to their lives. Many of our clients drive their M3s every day, and the cars truly accompany our clients through each and every adventure they may have. Arash is one such M3 enthusiast. He enjoys his M3 every day, whether it be driving to work, at the drag strip, at the track, or anywhere else. This connection with his M3 means that it is not a static show piece as much as it’s an extension of his personality and his lifestyle, and so his car is constantly evolving, just as he is.

This year, Arash chose to return to IND to take his car one step further in it’s evolution. Some M3Post members may remember when he first created his M3 vision, as we documented in this thread:

http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=409084

Arash chose to push his car to a new level by further addressing his interior. IND added Defi gauge package, Recaro Pole Position seats in leather (a rare sight in an E90!), a BMW performance shift knob, and a small hand-pinstriped IND logo on the aluminum trim for a finishing touch. We powdercoated his Akrapovic exhaust tips in gloss black, and hand pinstriped a red Akrapovic logo to update the car’s exterior, and removed the KW V3 coilovers in favor of KW ClubSport suspension to better compliment his RD Sport sway bars. Arash chose to finish off the car’s “street look” with a set of 5 spoke DPE wheels, which he will remove in favor of OZ Superleggera wheels for track use.

Enjoy the photos and stay tuned- Arash’s Silver Ghost will continue to evolve every year!

is that roof a 2x2 weave? What's typical weight savings of this piece?

Are the weight savings of those Recaros similar to the cloth Recaro seats thread that was put up recently (this week, IIRC)?
