ACM | Fashion Grey F80

With it's sole purpose to be a unique daily driver for his weekly working commute, our customer ordered this Individual Fashion Grey F80 M3 6MT over Amaro Brown full leather interior last November. Coming from a supercharged Alpine White on Black DCT E92 M3 daily, he was tired of the conventional color combination and lack of driver input that the DCT had to offer. Of course we can't leave anything alone and friends don't let friends drive stock so things escalated rather quickly.

His E92 M3 had BBS LM's and Brembo's so he knew for sure he wanted to go the same route on this car. We wanted a different take on the LM's from their factory machined finish so we had them split and polished the lips. We sent the faces out to IND to be refinished in a black chrome in order to match the IND black chrome front grills and side gills.

For the Brembos, we were on the fence with doing a Fashion Grey finish, but we didn't feel it would do the car complete justice. We decided to tie in the gorgeous Amaro interior with a Porsche twist. The calipers were painted in a classic Carrera brown with Fashion Grey classic lettering.

The headlights were blacked out by ONEighty and we added touches of FG inside with little body color painted accents. Wanting to maintain the EDC for its daily duties, he chose to lower the car on the KW HAS kit. An Eventuri intake in their regular carbon fiber finish fits perfectly under the hood with the factory CF strut bar. For the exhaust he chose Akrapovic downpipes and Akrapovic rear section, leaving the center stock, providing a clean refined sound. An ACM Flash Tune opens up the car's new found power being catless. A Vorsteiner front lip and rear diffuser were his aero pieces of choice. To tie them in we went with PSM carbon side skirt extensions. On top of the trunk is an OEM spoiler with a Fashion Grey CRT stripe. Lastly he opted for a Rogue Engineering Octane short shift kit.




















































Update: OEM M Peformance armrest and Competition seat belts with custom matching rear seat belts thanks to our buddy Eric K.

Thanks, yep it's a D800. I shot it with a nikkor 24-70 f2.8G lens and a Promaster circular polarizing filter.
