IND | 399

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com


One of the most rewarding moments as an IND employee is the opportunity to witness firsthand the passion and excitement of our clients as they work toward creating their dream M car. On a daily basis we take part in the beginning, continuation, and end of a vehicles evolution. For this stunning Atlantis Metallic E92 M3 the journey is just gaining momentum.

The progression of this Atlantis Metallic (paint code 399) coupe began with a simple phone call regarding painted reflectors. Like many BMW fans, the owner of this M3 was a bit apprehensive about the Atlantis Metallic paint color, and was unsure about his color choice. The order with BMW was fresh and was eligible for cancelation at a moment's notice. To help our client confirm his color choice, IND sent painted reflectors long before the car was delivered to our client. Once the paint sample was in hand a series of phone calls and even an in-person meeting at BimmerFest West took place, in an effort to string together a general outline for 399’s first iteration. It was clear the owner had a passion for detail and perfection, and knew that he wanted his modifications to standout, but also possess an “OEM plus” feel.








Our client is no stranger to high performance cars, and knew that this M3 would need some additional pep in its step. With the odometer reading just past the break-in period the S65B40 engine received a ESS VT2-625 kit. While in the engine bay we took the opportunity to tidy things up a bit and provide the Atlantis clad coupe with a more cohesive scheme. The valve covers received a high-temp textured black powder and the coils are now protected from the elements via color-matched ignition coil covers. The power is aurally translated with the assistance from an Eisenmann sport exhaust mated to the high flow catted Challenge sport x-pipe.



There is something nostalgic about an analog gauge, but as individuals immersed in the ebb and flow of performance technology we were giddy about the release of the Awron gauge. The seamless integration and factory bright OLED display fit the E9X M3's interior perfectly. The functionality and diagnostic capability of the unit is near second to none. In continuation with their goal of seamless integration, Awron even offers the display with a specially machined ESS velocity stack capable of receiving both an IAT and Boost sending unit adapter.











To stay with the OEM plus theme the seats and door panels of the E92 were removed from the vehicle. These pieces then received a touch of Alcantara to individualize the interior without detracting from a factory fit and look. For the center dash trim inspiration was taken from the M3 GTS name plate. The logo was borrowed from the notorious GTS and a subtle Atlantis hand pinstriped 399 was added below the logo. The OEM carbon door trim then received a splash of color via an Atlantis hand pinstriped accent line.

It is always a pleasure to immerse ourselves in a customer's vision and is even more special when we are a direct part of bringing this vision to reality. Although this is the first iteration of 399, we are confident that the car’s owner will enjoy it and look forward to the next phase of 399's evolution.

Bravo! I think that's the most amazing interior I've ever seen. Not overdone at all, very tasteful.

!!!!!!!! I want to thank Andrew, Ilia, Jesal, Nate, Brad and all of the contributors at the IND "skunk-works" facility for not only meeting but far exceeding my hopes and expectations for this build - the car came out nothing short of spectacular and greater than the sum of its parts. You guys are truly magicians.

I guess I have now been officially "outed" by IND - no more surfing this forum in relative anonymity.... a small price to pay for the wealth of information, advise and wisdom that I have gleaned from the many contributors of this forum over the past year as this project has taken shape.
