✪ Alekshop | From Stock to Rock in 24h

This weekend we had the pleasure to work on a 2011 Mineral White M3 that our customer brought to us for a quick make over

Having the perfect set of wheels sets the image of the car. We had many different options to consider for this project, but the guys at BBS offered us something new and different that no one else had - the new BBS FI in Satin Black finish. We knew right away this was our best option.

Once the wheels were selected, we chose to use Brembo GT BBK in Red finish to give the wheels a bold look.

The car came in with a very loud aftermarket exhaust system that the customer wasn't happy with and we knew that the Akrapovic Evolution exhaust system would be the ideal choice. In order to achieve the max performance, we used ESS Akrapovic ECU tune.


Options that were added:
  • BBS FI Satin Black Wheels
  • Brembo GT 380 Big Brake Kit
  • ESS Akrapovic ECU Tune
  • Akrapovic Evolution Exhaust System
  • BMW Performance Front and Side Grilles
  • LUX Angel Eyes













Enjoy,

Aleks.

Yeah, I hate to be "that guy", but that car really needs a subtle drop.

Just need a drop and the owner is all set.

Usually I'm not one to say "Needs a drop" but in this case it's screaming for one. Rolling on those wheels & brakes w/o a drop is plain wrong.

couldn't agree more, at 1st i was like, "gotDAMN!! bbs fi!"... then i was like, "sumthin's off tho".
i figured it jus needs a drop n reflectors, but nope, the red caps against the bbk throw it off real bad. the shades don't match imo.
