Beautiful car sir. Very beautiful.

However, i don't like:
- the wheels that are too much hidden in the body, does not look nice (for me)
- the mirrors are cool but they don't belong tot his car
- regardless that I perfectly understand the air deflector role under the exhaust, I strongly believe that is destroying the look of the car. It is actualy in a big conflict with the cf oem one that is smooth and very nice integrated in the rear bumper. I find this modd tasteless and almost kitschy. The gaps between left and right are not even equal...

The interior is very nice and unique though, wonderful machine indeed.
Enjoy it sir!

This thing is bonkers. However I wish it were a little more "go" and a little less "show".

At least hit the track in that thing!

Here's something I don't understand... Why buy a E90 and remove the rear seats to make it lighter when you could have just bought the E92 and done the same thing, but at least you wouldn't have the extended chassis and extra doors...

Wow those mirrors are ugly

Also would looks better with wider guards

And is it a varis lip? Not diffuser since you list a different rear diffuser?

The rear diffuser looks good in theory, in reality it looks like a cheap bolted on bit. Lucky it's functional

The wheels have poor fitment, 5-10 more offset in the rear MINIMUM. Cant see the front clearly enough. Entirely ruins the car.

The yellow flake trim is horrible

The hard-look leather dash looks cheap and from the 70's.. Cant even notice the door re-trim

The coverless mid's (speakers) in the doors look mint though.

Looks OKAY

But it's this stupid mix of race car and street car... A welded cage in many parts of the world/states isn't street legal for example... Those mirrors are USELESS... Ugh.

it's just a confused car

too much racecar for the street, not enough for the track

too much nice for the track, not enough for meets/shows

I got to say powerbeast, you have made a one off beast and respect to IND for the well executed project.

And for the people asking about the doors, it's up to HIM to choose what to do with em!

Cheers man
