Always been a big fan of your car. Great purposeful mods, but not never over the top. The car is in good hands, can't wait to see the end result. Congrats!

You're welcome but I'm not sure I did much "coaching"...
Actually Donnie, my Wife Thanks you (and a few others) for suggesting better safety equipment.

Did you make a suspension mod?

See ya at the track when you come to Summit.
Hello Sir, it's nice to hear from you! Yes, headroom and seat position will be set to my size by iND.

Suspension, yes, I added a few things. I have to keep up with you at Summit you know....

You'll the RT seats + harness on the track...just remember to relax your left leg because it's no longer needed for cornering support

Let me know when you've scheduled your next trip to Summit Point.

Ilia just confirmed my M3 arrived safely and is already at Fall Line where they will begin to build the Roll Bar.

Afterward my M3 goes to their upholsterer to build the rear closeout. Then onto iND's facility to paint the Roll Bar, install the M24 oil cooler and final assemby of the Roll Bar, Seats and Harnesses.

Received the enclosed via UPS today.

Update - Visit to Fall-Line today

So I flew to ORD and stopped by Fall-Line to see my M3.
(Thank you Ilia from iND who coordinated everything and met me at the airport).

The seats, carpet and console were all removed.
We spent an hour getting the Driver's side Racetech seat at just the right height and rake adjustment for my size. I'm glad I took the time today to make sure it was perfect. Tomorrow the Roll Bar installation starts.

Tim from Fall-Line gave us a tour and I snapped a few pics (sorry for the poor cell phone quality).

Check out the Engine Swap in the E46 and it's high tech cockpit.

Cool Maserati!
