Going to update this thread with recent work and projects! Starting with the Java Green E92 M3 All stops were pulled for this round of mods. After rod bearing service, he had an ESS Tuning VT2-650 paint matched to Brembo Yellow, with Java Green stripes, Brembo GT BBK, headlights by Oneighty NYC, and yellow interior updates

Equipped this track-focused E92 M3 with a plethora of AiM Sport Line goodies! From the EVO5, to the GPS08, even linear potentiometers. Some custom fabrication was completed to keep an OEM look. Here's the link to this build's dedicated thread! https://www.m3post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1439508

This 2008 E90 is a little different than the others that we've documented here. Disassembling some of the lower components on the lift while on our way to performing the rod bearing service, we discovered that there was a crack behind the alternator that was bandaged up. The damage does not appear as though it was from a front end collision, but perhaps an error while that engine was being installed back into the car....not quite sure. Regardless, instead of investing in that engine, he said he would bring us another one.

These are the bearing pulled out of the customer supplied long block, which according to the yard he got it from is a 2008 with 37,xxx miles. The bearings tell a different story. With no scoring done to the crank, we upgraded the rod bearings and did a bunch of maintenance items such as oil filter stand gasket, belts and tensioners, valve cover gaskets, cooling system overhaul, cleaned out the secondary air passages with the manifolds off, and spark plugs.

When this customer first came by the shop, he loved everything about the E92 platform, but desired more performance overall. He didn't want to just change the car for the sake of it, but rather improve all the areas of performance while staying remotely subtle. We started off the services with upgraded rod bearing replacement and full CSF cooling kit. An ESS VT2-650 kit followed along with a yellow StopTech big brake kit and Ohlins R/T coil overs. We sized up new Michelin PS4S tires from the factory ZCP specs, which sat perfectly under the fenders and allow some extra traction out back. Minimal carbon aero front and rear along with retaining the stock kidney grills and side gills keep the car's appearance somewhat low key. GTS software, M Performance steering wheel and Awron gauge, provide him with an improved driving experience and feedback from the driver's seat.

Awesome build, lots of 'subtle' improvements and I am sure it moves. Great spec too with the AW/FR.
