IND, ESS, Eisenmann, Challange and a M3

Just wanted to share my experiences with IND and the winning products they install/distribute.
I bought a 2013 drop top M3 late last year (on a whim) and as much as I liked some things about the car, I was very upset with the power.
I found IND and and contacted them for info on an ESS install to try to get this thing to proper power levels.
After meeting with Ilia at IND the decision was easy! Ilia's knowledge of all aspects of the M3 was comforting, and as I found out correct. Correct being the most important part of the story to me!
Once the ESS install was complete, we bantered back and forth on an exhaust upgrade (of which I had not considered) and I decided to install an Eisenmann Sport exhaust/connecting pipes and a Challenge Race X pipe. The end results are phenomenal!
The car now has proper power and the sound is incredible! Every person I have come into contact with (after they heard a sample) has expressed the same emotion as to the sound! Awesome!
With the drop top stored the sound from in the car cant be beat! It sounds more Italian than German.

More importantly the power has made the car much more enjoyable. I recently joined a group for a "spirited drive" through the Wisconsin countryside. It was GOOD! When the guy in the Porsche behind you says, " I didn't want to take my eyes off the road to see how fast we were going, but I know you were pulling away!" you know it was good!

Kudos to ESS, Eisenmann, Challenge, and most of all IND for bringing them all together in perfect harmony!

I'm happy to share my experiences with anyone here via public forum or PM.

Keep an eye out for the Space Gray Metallic M3 drop top around Chicagoland and say Hi.

Nate, I have to schedule a time to get the car by you for the Stack gauges and SC oil change. You or Ilia can let me know what works.

I can drop the car or whatever.

I'm also taking my car to Joliet Autobahn for BMW North America's event there on 6/14.

They talk about hot laps in the 2013 BMW Performance Fleet, but I think I'll stick with the fast car!
