Mineral White BMW M3 Gets Lowered & Tastefully ModdedJune 15, 2017
The summer season is upon us, meaning perfect motoring weather, plenty of events and times to shine. For many, this month is the last chance to get their vehicles tuned & ready for the motoring season. For the owner of this Mineral White BMW E92 M3, it was clear something had to be done. With the combination of appealing looks and affordable price of the M3 itself, joined by the bevy of aftermarket solutions for this platform, it all meant that his vehicle will be more than ready for summer.
The BMW E92 M3 comes with a naturally aspirated 4.0 liter V8 engine which delivers 414 horsepower and 300 lb-ft of torque. Consequently, the E92 M3 will sprint from 0-62mph (0-100km/h) in 4.3 – 4.5 seconds. The vehicle will reach a top speed of 155mph (250km/h) and presents a great start for an aftermarket build.
The parts list on this BMW M3 project is really extensive. First, the performance angle was taken care off. This is done thanks to an ESS Tuning e-flash ECU performance software cable, the Eisenmann performance exhaust system and the added ECU modding as well. In turn, this allows the M3 to achieve somewhat better power and torque ratings but ultimately allows for an improved throttle response and an even more appealing exhaust sound.
The vehicle also got a few aftermarket touches in the visual department, Namely, the AST suspension lowering springs add an additional aggressive stance to the M3, giving it a much better overall look. The Macht Schnell wheel spacer kit – 10mm all around – gives the wheels a more flush-to-the-fenders look. Some owners tend to replace the factory wheels with an aftermarket solution, but the OEM BMW E92 M3 look good. For this owner, there was no need to intervene in this department overall. The BMW carbon fiber mirror caps are joined by the black chrome kidney grilles, cleaning up the vehicle’s exterior nicely.
Finally, the Mode Carbon came into play with the carbon fiber GTS motorsport wing, but also the LM series carbon fiber rear diffuser – perfect finishing touch for this build. Check out the complete project gallery of the build done by European Auto Source right below.
