In typical iND fashion, you guys do phenomenal work and stop at nothing to make sure the end user is satisfied. I applaud you gentlemen for taking the time to think through the little details that most would never appreciate. It's rare to see shops run by individuals who are visionaries and are not afraid to exercise their imaginations.

Felix, you have a beautiful ride. You have selected some very top shelf equipment to put on the E90.

With that said Felix, here are my personal issues with the philosophy of the car.
1) The car will never see a track. The 1M never did, the E90 won't either. With that said, why does the car have a welded cage in it? I would be SERIOUSLY concerned with the safety of myself and the occupants in the God forbidding event of a crash. (Unless you drive around with a helmet on for street/highway driving) In the case you ever tracked this car, I think a bolt in harness bar would have been more appropriate.

2)Practicality. It has been eliminated here. I think we all understand that you initially thought you would utilize the back seats and now you don't. I do wish this part would have been thought through a little more.

3)The car has a almost full blown track type look on the exterior as well as an obvious yellow cage in the back. To follow the design theme that this car is going to be built for track use, slotted rotors should have been utilized. I only mention this to minimize the "confusion".

Items I love:
1) Yellow stitching in the seats
2)Yellow seat belts
3)Yellow BBK on the Dakar Yellow car. Many would have purposely opted out from yellow calipers on a yellow car. I think it looks phenomenal
4)New ESS manifold color.

Car looks amazing . I really hope a week from now a "parting out" thread does not pop up and this car is dismantled like the 1M. So much down time getting modded now you have to put lots of quality miles on the ole girl. Its the rules so you have to do it! haha

The car is epic.

Just a work of art. I love the paint specs on the interior and the way everything flows. The FI's suit it so well.

My only issue, which I think you may not have noticed, is that the rear rotors are backwards. But, I'm sure that was just an oversight and we've all seen worse.

The disc direction is determined by the position of the vanes inside the disc, with the drill pattern being secondary. The vanes built into the inside of the disc dramatically increase the cooling capacity of the disc, and the drill pattern is designed after the optimum vane design is achieved.

These discs are oriented in the appropriate fashion.

I've experienced quite the brake dilemma in the past... Not fun.

naw i made other comments saying it's a confused car. not race not show, not good enough for either, not good enough at either.

the BMW motorsports mirrors are fitted in their racecars just for rules purposes. to race they need side mirrors but functionality isn't a concern going by the rulebook, they just have to be present, so they fit as teeny tiny as possible without being 100% useless.

ED: first post says " 3D Design" rear diffuser.. but aboe that it's a 'varis' diffuser

even a quick look on google images, not tacky at all as long as it follows the original lines

that's just like saying an RWB porsche looks bad

The upper section is by 3D Design, whereas the lower tray is built by Varis.
