To be more unique and not to be yet another E92 with a cage.

Felix, as everyone has said, unreal... It really seems as if a designer took a blank slate and touched on absolutely everything he wanted to, something we ALL wish we could do but for various reasons don't. There is nothing unfinished at this point, though I'm sure you STILL have some ideas up there.

Honestly, I would be absolutely scared shitless to drive this car.

P.S. I still see you running around from time to time, I no longer have the 1, if you see a blue c5 z06 honking at you it's just me

The interior is awesome - very nicely done.

I'm curious - do you drive this baby much? I only ask because the drop is so low I wonder what it's like to hit any bumps or potholes ?

Felix... INCREDIBLE MAN!!

I need to ship my car to IND...

The car is seriously stunning. I'm happy I did the race seat coding for it

Let me know when you want those chimes taken care of.

Always preferred the E90 over the E92 (body proportion, aesthetics), this makes the E90 that much better!

Berserk, so Powerbeast and JEllis both with motorsport mirrors

The GTS centre glovebox close out is a nice touch, not a massive fan of the front lip but on the whole interior is superb, before and even more so after.

Its the details that make this car remarkable - but not many people talking about them.

1. Color-matched Dakar yellow contrast stitching on alcantara BMW performance seats - such an amazing touch. Probably my favorite detail on the car.

2. BMW performance steering wheel - with dakar yellow center insert over tri-color stitching. This isn't offered by BMW. The yellow insert only comes over white stitching (to my knowledge), which means this was custom work. Love it.

3. Yellow seat-belts - we dont' see many people modding seat belt color in their cars. Personally i can't think of one. Adds a lot of character to the car. Great touch IMO.

4. Refinishing the already-custom-painted (dakar) Manifold to a new color. That's extravagance.


Beatiful build. Small suggestion - get rid of the KW clubsport module in the engine bay. The silver throws off the balance and cohesiveness under the hood.

Don't think anyone has asked. Total weight savings?

Notwithstanding, why waste the backseats? If sturdiness is the top concern, why not just modify an e92 ? I heard some people say e90 m3 sedan provides less body roll than e92 m3. Is that true?
Exactly everything I wanted to post Awesome but I still miss your Dakar Yellow 1M Powerbeast!

If IND offered those belts in yellow, red and blue they would have people lined up for miles!

Ilia wanna chime in?

INcredible Color. Where did you get those epic mirrors? Really sleek and streamlined.
