When you’re a car enthusiast, odds are you would take your
sports car to the track as well. Yet, this is your daily driver
so overloading it with racing upgrades is often not the right
choice. For the owner of this gorgeous
Sakhir Orange BMW M3, that balance meant giving his vehicle
some high-quality aftermarket upgrades while keeping the daily
driving spirit untouched.
BMW M3 is powered by one of the most advanced petrol
engines available on the market today. The 3.0 Liter BMW
TwinPower Turbo engine – delivering 425 horsepower and 406lb-ft
of torque – comes with impressive performance and goes easy on
your wallet when the fuel bill comes into play. The vehicle
will do a run from 0-62mph (0-100km/h) in just 4.1 seconds, but
it also gets you 17 mpg on the city and 27 mpg on the highway.
In turn, this made the
BMW M3 a perfect starting point for this aftermarket build.
The cosmetic touches were first to be added here. Namely, the
BMW M Performance carbon fiber rear spoiler and side blade
attachments first found their way onto this vehicle. Next,
a lightweight front lip spoiler was installed, followed by iND
painted side reflectors, rear reflectors and blacked out kidney
To prep the car for the track as well, a set of Macht Schnell
spacers – 15mm in the front and 12mm in the rear – were added
to the ride.
The final touch on this M3 is the
KW Suspension HAS (Height Adjustable Lowering Spring
Sleeve-Over Kit) which allows the owner to adjust the ride
height of his vehicle with a reasonable price point, without
the need to commit to a full coilover setup. In turn, this
allows the vehicle to be utilized in daily driving modes, but
also, be prepared for those track day events in a short period
of time. Check out the full media gallery of this project right
