▀▄ eas | Alpine White M3 Gets Some Carbon Love

A lot of our customers simply love carbon fiber.

Take the owner of this Alpine White / Bamboo Beige E92 for example. Satisfied with the OEM performance, handling and sound of his M3, the only thing missing for him was a healthy dose of carbon fiber. To remedy the situation we first installed BMW Performance's own carbon fiber interior trim, which surrounds the cabin in a glossy 2x2 weave.



BMW doesn't make a carbon fiber center console, so IND supplied a beautiful matching center console piece to complete the interior. For the exterior, we then installed the BMW Performance front splitters and mirror caps. Additionally, we further improved the interior by installing bmwpedals aluminum pedals (complete with an engraved ///M logo) and a matching set of billet aluminum DCT shifter paddles.

Modifications
- BMW Performance Carbon Fiber Front Splitters
- BMW Performance Carbon Fiber Interior Trim with IND Carbon Fiber Center Console
- BMW Performance Carbon Fiber Mirror Caps
- bmwpedals Aluminum Pedal Kit
- bmwpedals Extended Billet DCT Shifter Paddles

Enjoy!

Bucket List Item...

Thanks a million to the guys at EAS that did the work for me, depicted above! They were awesome. There is a long back-story to this that they were not aware of. I have always been a super healthy fitness nut with many Ironman’s under my belt and I have never smoked a single cigarette in my life. Ever. In August of last year, out of the blue, I was diagnosed with stage 4, terminal lung cancer as a result of a very rare genetic mutation. As a result, I have a very limited life expectancy. One of my bucket list items was to finally drive a classy, fast, yet tricked out car and that’s where the M3 and EAS came in.

Last week I was able to knock out three items on my bucket list. While spending time with my brother from South Africa (item 1), doing a looong cross country road trip (item 2), I stopped by EAS in LA for a day. I piled on the work for them to do in one day and they never blinked to get it done for me that day. Every part got there in time and in addition to the interior I also dropped a late minute alignment and OEM exhaust mod on them. They just smiled and said they’ll get it done that day. After staying late that night the guys finished "tricking my car out" (item 3) and I was on my way to the next stop of my journey.

Thank you guys, the work you did blew my expectations away. If I was closer I would use you much more frequently.

Wow, sorry to hear about your health. Car looks great, but the most important part of all this is you. However, EAS knows how to take care of its customers!

I'm at a loss for words, not even sure how to respond. I can only wish there was more we could do for you.

Thank you very much for allowing us to be a part of your special build, it has an entirely new meaning after reading of your condition and will always hold a special place in our hearts.

OP: I am very sorry to hear about your health but keep ticking that bucket list off! I hate to say it but for most of us, we don't truly live till we are staring at our own mortality.

Tom: The fact that you and your crew went above and beyond to fulfill a customers wants without knowing the OP's back story shows why you're at the top end of the industry. Most people will bend over backwards when there's special circumstances but your company did it without needing one. From one business owner to the next, kudos.
