Cleaner Green

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com


It has been said that with distance comes clarity and focus. Without leaving the planet, our client has traveled one of the greatest distances from our shop that a person can manage: Australia. A total of 9,000 miles and up to two years' time lie between him and his car, the infamous Green Hell project. IND has been tasked with the responsibility of storing and maintaining Green Hell while itís owner is taking advantage of the opportunity of a lifetime in the land Down Under. We are honored and fortunate to be able to take care of such an iconic creation.

With this responsibility came also the opportunity to perform a bit of cosmetic adjustment. Because Green Hell is in a somewhat permanent storage, IND is able to make changes to the car at will and add components from our in stock inventory. Not only were we given free reign to change a few major components, these modifications were carried out without our client's specific knowledge of which parts were installed. You are discovering our changes at the very same moment he is!

With alacrity and excitement we set to work. It quickly became apparent that a streamlined yet functional approach was essential, and with that focal point in mind, we realized only one rear wing could replace the recognizably massive M24 unit, and that was RKP's lightweight carbon fiber GTS wing painted in a matte black finish. Carefully paired with this on the front end is an RKP GT4 front lip, also laid in highly polished bare carbon fiber. To finish off the appearance, a set of Volk Racing TE37 SL wheels in the pressed graphite finish and color-matched green decals were installed.

The finished effect is a noticeable and striking study in contrast. While Green Hell still screams aggression, both visually and aurally, the lines and extensions seem to be pulled back into a taut, poised creature with intent to strike. Motorsport and competition still dominate the thematic structure, however tasteful restraint is quite obviously the order of the day. Something about the way the M3 squats over the TE37 SLs and hugs the ground with its new carbon aero components inspires a picture of speed and competence. Every one of us is overcome with pride, and while the internals remain intact for now, something tells us we have not seen the last of this car's never-ending evolution.

And so, the latest and greatest incarnation of Green Hell prowls our facility with an intimidating facade and yet graceful presence that serves as a daily, constant reminder of how clean and perfect a race-inspired build can become. With every glance, every encounter, the familiar burning pride and passion is renewed within all of us. While regrettably we cannot present the new Green Hell in person to our client (or use the car in an on-track environment without his presence), the knowledge that his original vision lives on to be enjoyed by enthusiasts around the world gives us great contentment. We are humbled and grateful to be granted the privilege of bringing you a cleaner Green.

love the TE's, but i personally like the wing it had before, with its color, and other exterior mods, the previous wing set the car just about perfect.

Like the new lip and spoiler much better but liked the E88s more than the volks.
