Smile HG Motorsports E90 M3 build

Here's my E90 M3 build done by HG Motorsports in San Diego.


List of new upgrades:
- HG Motorsports weld in roll cage
- ESS Low compression built engine
- One Eighty custom headlights
- Recaro Sportster CS seats
- Recaro seat backing done in 4x4 V weave with dry finish
- Complete interior in alcantara with custom stitching
- Custom interior trim in 4x4 carbon with dry finish
- BMW Performance V2 steering wheel with electronics
- Strategically placed stickers

List of prior upgrades:
- HRE P44 SC wheels in battleship grey
- Challenge 4x4 Carbon V-weave roof
- Challenge 4x4 Carbon V-weave mirrors
- Challenge 4x4 Carbon V-weave trunk
- Eisenmann inconnel axle back exhaust
- Akrapovic GT4 x pipe
- Brembo BBK
- KW Clubsport Suspension
- White LED interior lights
- Vorsteiner GTS5 front bumper
- ESS VT2 625 supercharger





This is when I first picked up the car in San Diego at HG Motorsports.


Installed new Vorstiener GTS5 front bumper with some fiji green accents. The challenge lip was too low for this ledge that's in my garage. It was also a "challenge" to drive around on the street as well.


Bumper installed.


E90 M3 sitting next to my F10 M5.Painted another set of grills metallic black and another set of hood vents to fiji green. I got the emblems to match as well.




Shipping her off to HG Motorsports.


Arrived in San Diego by JP Logistics. Use them if you need to ship any cars.


New eyes from One Eighty with projector lenses, fiji green inner shroud, matte black outer shroud, and metallic black bottom shroud.


Here was my render I sent in using one of their pictures. It came out pretty close!


Lights back in.


Lights on.


New Recaro Sportser CS installed


Washed and ready for Targa Trophy.


Arrived at Targa Trophy.


Ready for some fun.


Leaving the Targa Trophy starting line.


Driving some amazing routes!


Night shot.


Back at the shop to start on the roll cage and interior.


Interior removed.


Theft recovery?




This was the first bolt on cage they built but I ended up getting the weld in cage.


This doesn't look too comfortable but the weld quality here is top notch.




Old interior panels. Fox red is nice but everyone has it.


Dash done in alcantara.


Center console in alcantara.



My render of the interior panels.


Finished rear door panel.


Recaro seat backing done in 4x4 V weave with metallic black side pieces all done in frozen clear.


New trim pieces done in 4x4 weave topped with frozen clear.


New weld in roll cage being built.


Weld in roll cage painted.


Updated the V1 electronic steering wheel to V2.


Front lip re-done in 4x4 carbon V weave to match the roof and trunk


Close up


Front door panel with trim installed.


Dash, trim, and new steering wheel back in.


Competed roll cage.


Old engine going out.




New motor going in.


more updates to come!

Thank you kind sir! M5 picks up really fast and it's really smooth. They're totally two different animals.

I would say from a roll the M3 would take it. From a dig probably the M5.

Your Car is looking really good

Can't wait to see the new up grades in person when you get it back. Nice seeing you and the car at the NTBC meet

You will enjoy the Targa Trophy event and BigLare is a really cool guy

I'm liking the Fiji accents on the GTS5.

Nice touch.
