I made an Instagram just for the build - www.instagram.com/spencerberkegarage

The car is currently getting the roll cage, but here's the breakdown of what's happening in the next 2-3 weeks.
  • Full sound system upgrades (DONE)
  • Roll Cage/bar from Studio RSR
  • 18x10 Apex ARC8's 275 Squared with Spacers
  • RTD Shifter
  • VFEngineering Supercharger Stage 1
  • Revinora rear diffuser
  • Revinora carbon fiber mirror caps
  • Sparco Evo II Seat(s)

I just wanted to jump back in here to document the build more and have a fun time doing it. I know I don't have much track time in yet, but I've always loved the look of a caged car. This is my first time doing forced induction as well, so I'm super stoked on doing all these fun mods with great companies.

If anybody has any questions, let me know. Or you can hit me up on Instagram www.Instagram.com/spencerberke. Thanks for checking out my build. I'll jump back in here once a few more things are done.

If you plan on tracking the car you may want to consider running an intercooled kit. I have an ess 625 and even it heat soaks on the track and is waaay down on power. Also have issues with the transmission overheating now that the car is supercharged but this is most likely due to the inter cooler blocking the transmission cooler. The supercharger is great on the street though, especially on a cool day. Wouldn’t own an m3 without one, only wish I did it sooner.

That's awesome to hear, that makes me excited. I will definitely look into the cooling as well. Thanks for the advice!

Had a full custom audio sound system installed by Newport Auto Sound and Audison Hertz. It was a 12 speaker replacement with basic fiber optics. I documented the entire process.

I went over to StudioRSR in SoCal to have them do a half cage. They have done 80+ cages and I've known Robert, the owner for a long time. I really wanted to stand out for YouTube videos/Photos, etc. So we put in a gloss white half cage custom made. They now offer this cage for the E90 M3 series. They ship worldwide.

I've been partnering with some really good companies the last few months. I just connected with RTD Shifter from Lebanon. They sent me over a new shifter they just made.

It goes to SSR Performance next week to get that installed, along with a few other things. Will update soon with my thoughts after installed.









You can see their shifters here - www.instagram.com/rtd.shifter

They don't have an online store yet but they just say DM them for the info on the shifters. I'll do a full video review once it gets installed.

Had a steering wheel vibration issue. We swapped wheels back to my DPE FlowTech wheels, had them balanced and still had vibration. It goes to SSR Performance next week to get the shifter installed and the wheel hubs looked at. Hopefully it's nothing too major.

Here's a few pics with the DPE's back on plus my 15% heat rejection window tint. I think I'm going to take it off and put clear heat rejection tint to show the roll cage.

I am thankful that I have two more companies who I am working with now for suspension and for a digital gauge to measure my boost/temps/etc. I will post some new photos coming soon of the new products I have coming, the new shifter install, along with some other fun stuff.

I JUST ordered my new wheels today. I can't wait. Since I finally have an M3, I can fit these wheels. I've ran 18's, I've ran 20's... now I'm going to run 19's. I think this setup should be AMAZING. I've been wanting these wheels for the last 9 years... excited to share the pics!!

I have a Awron digital gauge coming to replace one of my vents in my car. This should be really cool to see once I get the supercharger installed as well.

Bet the audio sounds amazing now!

I plan on upgrading my setup, just trying to figure out what I want. Would the Audison speakers be a drop in plug n play affair? I won't be replacing the floor subs because I already have a JL amp and JL 10w6 in the back. Or would I need a separate amp to drive the front speakers?

Thanks! Yeah the car sounds epic now, it's crazy. I was never an audio guy but this changed my perspective. Yes, it's literally just plug and play with new speakers. I would recommend another amp to power them just so you get full potential.

I would call Mike at Newport Auto Sound this week - just say you know Spencer and he can help regardless - www.instagram.com/newportautosound - (949) 548-1160

Thanks man! I love to document in a form that most don't. Plus, it's my career, so I enjoy it a lot. I've seen so many builds in photo format, but I think video really helps bring out a lot more of the natural feelings when you get a new car, new part, new mod, new company, new sponsorship, etc.

Thanks for the kind words and for watching my journey so far!!

Went to Bimmerfest last weekend. Had a BLAST! Thanks to the people who took pics of my car and said what's up! Here's two of my videos. I have another one coming soon. So much footage I had to split it up!
