Sonic Motorsport | Jason's BMW E92 M3 + Arkym + BBS + Varis + More

I had recently taken some shots of this BMW M3 belonging to a long time client of ours at Sonic Motorsport. Personally, it's probably my favorite M3 I have ever seen. I never would have thought such a color way with red wheels would look good but seeing this in person definitely got my attention.

It had reminded me of the Ducati 848 Evo themes which I think is gorgeous. Well enough talking, here are some of my photos of the M3.

If you like my work and would like to see more please check out my Flickr at www.flickr.com/duey540i or www.facebook.com/richardlephotography

Saw it driving by Santana row on Sunday afternoon. I never thought either that M3 with red wheels can look this good. Gorgeous car!

Gorgeous car.

FWIW the shoulder harness straps are not attached to the roll bar correctly. They should have one more loop back under the clip.

Very nice car... Does anyone know what half cage that is, since the car has a moon roof and all..? Most cages won't fit with a moon roof and I'm looking for one that does.

Probably doesn't matter for a show car.

True... It is however a pet peeve of mine. I see so many "track cars" featured on the internet with incorrectly installed harnesses. I can't believe how many people go through the trouble of installing a roll bar and fixed back seats; then turn around and install the harnesses incorrectly. They go that far but don't take the time to research how to run the straps. That little mistake can result in the straps slipping on impact making the "safety" additions not so safe. I'm super anal so it's the little things that bother me.
