The icing on the cake!

Published on April 28, 2011 by in Automobile, BMW, iND, News

In my time at IND, I have never had a single day where I did not want to come to work. Being at IND is truly a blessing every single day, but the biggest privilege of all, the greatest honor, is being entrusted by one of our clients to take delivery of their brand new, zero mile M3.

M3Post member Justin(OKC) gave us such a privilege this week when we finally took delivery of the M3 on his behalf. Over the next few weeks we’ll install a number of tasteful modifications to make Justin’s M3 perfect for him.

 Working with clients like yourself is truly the icing on the cake. Justin, thank you for the opportunity!

Challenge presents their Race + x pipe!

Challenge Engineering is known for having an extensive collection of x pipes for the E9x M3 to suit every need and sound preference, but there is one group of M3 Enthusiasts that are left out even with Challenge’s broad lineup- guys that really want the meanest, loudest M3 they can have.

For those people, Challenge has created the Race + x pipe. The Race + is lighter in weight than any other Challenge x pipe, and will give an M3 the most aggressive sound possible.

First the icing on the cake, now the cherry on top!

In my time at IND, I have never had a single day where I did not want to come to work. Being at IND is truly a blessing every single day, but the biggest privilege of all, the greatest honor, is being entrusted by one of our clients to take delivery of their brand new, zero mile M3.

M3Post member Justin(OKC) gave us such a privilege this week when we finally took delivery of the M3 on his behalf. Over the next few weeks we’ll install a number of tasteful modifications to make Justin’s M3 perfect for him.

Unfortunately, fans of the E90 M3 got the short end of the stick in many ways, especially when it came to aftermarket support. Those who got into an E90 M3 early on will remember how difficult it was to source exterior parts- everything from trunks to hoods had to be custom made in the E90’s early days.

One area where we felt E90 enthusiasts were truly short handed was the lack of a carbon fiber roof. The E92 M3’s carbon roof represented a major step for BMW M as it was essentially the first use of structural composite components bonded into the car’s unibody specifically to save weight. BMW had not released an item like this on a mass scale before the E92 M3, and of course chose to highlight this feature by leaving the roof panels completely unpainted. Of course, fans of the E90 who wanted a carbon roof were out of luck.

IND addressed this problem several years ago when we worked to develop our own mold for a carbon fiber roof for the E90 M3 chassis. Since then we’ve been blessed to perform carbon fiber roof conversions on some of the most notable E90 M3s in the US, and this week are tackling our next job.

Justin makes his journey to the IND facility to see his M3 for the first time!

Safely home after the trip from Chicago to Oklahoma City! Now let the show begin!

IND’s newest R8 creation!

Many people know IND for modifying BMW cars of all types, and we take great pride in our BMW projects. However, our shop gates see much more than just BMWs, and after allowing countless Mercedes, Lamborghini, Ferrari, Audi, and even American Classic cars through our doors undocumented, we decided it was time to share the rest of our work with car enthusiasts.
    
Please enjoy these photos of our latest Audi R8!

Martin in print!

If reading the UK-based Max Power magazine is a guilty pleasure most of us enjoyed a decade ago, reading the Greek version of Max Power is an absolute cardinal sin. The Greek Max Power has everything every teenaged car nut could want- more girls, more absurd cars, and more street racing.

When Max Power Greece asked us to shoot a Martin’s M3 for a full feature, we naturally agreed with a grin.
   
Now that Max Power released Martin’s feature issue, I wanted to share a few unreleased photos from our shoot. To see Martin’s M3 in person, please look for this car at the Race Technologies [B]Brembo[/B] booth at the BimmerFest show on May 14th!

Klammer invades the AutoBahn!

We try not to play favorites with clients at IND but sometimes the great people we work with make keeping to that rule difficult. Keith, the owner of this Space Grey E90 M3 has an amazing perspective on life, cars, and driving and is a client we’ve truly come to respect.

We recently installed an Alcon brake kit on Keith’s M3 to prepare it for his busy track season, and Keith has already had the opportunity to try the brakes at his first HPDE. The weather at the AutoBahn country club was cold and wet this Monday but there was still a great turnout and a good variety of cars present. It was great to see the Alcon brakes and Keith’s M3 in action!

Keith, we hope you have a safe and fun season this year!
