First the icing on the cake, now the cherry on top! - E90 M3 Build

I want to first give my sincerest THANK YOU to:

1) Chris and Gary at Patrick BMW for working with me during the purchase of the car.

2) Nate and Ilia at IND for their hard work in orchestrating this project before I ever got to see the car. Seemed like many things did not go right as we tried to do this, but it all worked out. IND really went out of their way to take care of me!

3) Harold at HP Autowerks for his help in putting the suspension setup not only for this car but the 135i that had the suspension on it first. Harold has a wealth of knowledge and has some of the best customer service I have ever experienced.

4) Bryan Rohr (snax on bimmerforums) for his help while installing the suspension.

5) JP at Auto Distinctions for his work on the flawless tint job and paint protection.

6) Neil Prasad (neil1138 on bimmerforums) for his time and talents in the two photoshoots we did with the car in Oklahoma City.

7) Preston Power (PPower), my brother, who really is part of the brains behind the mods that were done to the car. Who knows what color I would have gotten if I didn’t have him to talk to and seek advice. He’s also responsible for the photoshoot in Tulsa, OK.

Since the E90 M3 came out, I was sure it was the car I wanted except I was bothered by one small detail, no CF roof like the coupe. At the time I decided I would go for a 135i to drive for a few years until I made up my mind on whether to do an E90 or E92 M3. Fast forward a few years and my solution became apparent when IND introduced us to their Atlantis Blue E90 M3 project. The result is something that I am really happy with as I love the classic mods on BMWs with a little understated aggressiveness. This, in my opinion is how BMW should have made the E90 M3.

Many of you have been following the progression of my car since IND took delivery of it in late April. Some photos have been posted here and there by IND and my brother.

Many have asked for more. Here are the photos some of you have been waiting for……

Ho...Ly... Crap!!! Congratulations on an epic journey for such a beautiful car. I feel privileged to live in the same city as it.

Probably my favorite E90 on the forum, and I am not even really a fan of the E90. Can't wait to see what else comes of this car.
