ACM | Tanzanite Bruiser

After completing an absolutely killer E92 M3 build a few years back, our customer, John, had some personal growth between work and family requiring a shift in his automotive direction. He needed something with more space and practicality that can be used everyday and for longer trips. This sacrifice of getting out of his coupe didn't mean he still couldn't have fun though. He switched out from a supercharged Interlagos Blue E92 into an Individual Tanzanite Blue F80. With his primary focus on the car's performance in mind, we sought out the areas he wanted to improve while adding some details to other areas, dressing the car up a bit. He now enjoys the best of both worlds with a practical, reliable rocket to haul his family around in.

Pure Stage 2+ turbos
Gintani crank hub
SSP Spec R clutch

VRSF charge pipes
AR Design resonated downpipes
AA equal length midpipe
DME Tuning stage 3 flash
Brembo BM-6 BBK
MSS height adjustable springs
HRE Wheels 301M
Bridgestone RE71 265 / 305
Vorsteiner GTS front lip
Vorsteiner GTS-V rear diffuser
Status Gruppe side skirt extensions
IND cosmetics
M Performance CF and alcantara DCT knob and base plate, e-brake boot and arm rest

ONEighty black out headlight



























And his E92 M3 for drooling purposes

Wow..awesome ACM build as usual. Curious the reasoning for a catted DP (emissions I assume) and if gains are substantial enough to justify the change/price?

Thanks! It's actually a resonated downpipe (fixed in description), not catted. No restriction to performance!

Not sure if it's just me but that E92 may have caught more of my attention.
