Vorsteiner GTS-V Diffuser E92/E93

As a car enthusiast there is no greater joy than receiving a part and being 100% thrilled with the item. The level excitement is equal to if not great than opening any childhood present. The type I and II diffusers have been on the market from roughly the same point as the E9X M3′s inception. Every time we receive a type I or II diffuser we are very happy with the product. Beyond the bubble wrap there is always a product possessing a consistent weave, good mounting points, and of course top notch construction. Yet there is something missing…

Yesterday morning the void was filled. Upon receiving the concept photos of the GTS-V all of us knew this diffuser was something we had to have. With the exception of the Vorsteiner SEMA vehicle we were honored to receive the second GTS-V diffuser from Vorsteiner. When the white box with red lettering arrived all of us ran to the FedEx driver with a childlike excitement and immediately tore into the packaging. There it was, that feeling of balance. Every technician, every painter, every staff member of iND is thoroughly impressed with this product and as a result will be featured on a upcoming project ;)

For all E90 owners do not worry. Vorstiner is looking into fitment/development of a E90 specific GTS-V

SFO to ORD

Many people know Kris from modmynav for his knowledge of programming, professional installations, and all of the product offerings that help bring the little creature comforts and additional safety features we yearn for in our modern BMW’s. Recently Kris made the journey from San Francisco to the Windy city. It was a big adjustment coming from San Francisco to a big city with a small town bravado that at times possesses questionable politics as well as roads that have seen better days. In exchange for his sacrifice of California sun shine we have introduced Kris to deep dish pizza and cold weather.

Upon arrival Kris has been extremely helpful and has afforded us the opportunity to bring a service to our customers that was virtually non-existent. Inspired by the move Kris@modmynav arrived at the decision that his car needed a new look to go with his new environment. Drawing inspiration from the roundel Kris chose Bavaria blue as the focal point of the makeover. You can see Bavaria blue speckled across the E92 from the TE37SL’s, to custom painted performance spoiler, and even the mirror caps. More mods are soon to come including a set of pole positions, but with winter around the corner Kris made the decision to hold off and take full advantage of the heated seats.

IND Distribution creates the first Carbon Fiber roof for the E82 1M!

The 1M is every bit a BMW M car, offering eye-opening acceleration, great steering feel, and chassis dynamics that have still not been rivaled by any other manufacturer, even after decades of second-best efforts from the likes of Audi, Mercedes, and others. There is only one feature of the modern M car missing from the 1M, and that is the now-trademark carbon fiber roof.

IND moved forward with our E82 carbon roof project after seeing some interest among the community. We created the tooling earlier last month, and just yesterday saw our first production-ready piece.

As we expected, the finish of the roof is absolutely beautiful, and the piece is extremely light weight at just over 10 lbs. Our carbon manufacturer is located here in the USA and is a supplier to many major race teams in various closed top and open wheel classes across the U.S.

The best in motorsport wheels from BBS!

BBS Kraftfahrzeugtechnik AG has been revolutionizing the sports wheel industry since the company’s humble beginnings in Schiltach Germany in 1970. Most of our clients know that BBS still sets the standard in wheel manufacturing, both for road and race track use, even after 30 years of history.

IND celebrates these years of racing by offering one of BBS’ most popular racing wheels to our clients: BBS’ style E88.

BBS’ motorsport program offers custom barrel sizing and center designs to produce literally an infinite amount of possible combinations. Prospective customers can ask BBS to design one-off centers for very limited production to suit their individual needs, but this design process is beyond the needs and capabilities of most.

IND’s staff have waded through the possibilities to create a number of easy, off the shelf solutions. We’ve selected the appropriate center and two barrel combinations. IND’s paint staff can, of course, refinish the wheels in any custom finish for an additional charge.

IND Distribution presents the Akrapovic Audi R8 exhaust system.

All of us at IND have been anxiously anticipating the arrival of the Akrapovic Titanium exhaust system for the V10 R8, and we were fortunate enough to finally have the opportunity to install a system in house at IND’s facility last week. As anticipated, the Akrapovic system is an absolute masterpiece. It’s titanium construction reduces weight at the very extremity of the car, right where it’s most effective. The cast titanium valve system is a unique Akrapovic design, and allows for a subdued tone during regular driving, and a wide open sports car sound at high RPM. Akrapovic’s optional wireless kit can be added to the exhaust package for in-cabin adjustment of the exhaust note. Finally, the beautiful carbon fiber exhaust tips finish the appearance of the system.

Akrapovic’s exhaust system for the V10 R8 saves an incredible 35lbs over the factory exhaust, and produces a 14hp gain!

A Motorsport Pilgrimage

For most people of faith a yearly pilgrimage is the most important reaffirmation and renewal of faith of their lifetime. Although IND’s staff comes from varied cultures and backgrounds, we are still able to come together for our own yearly pilgrimage to Germany- the promised land of European sports cars. We do our best to travel to Germany every year to revisit our own icons of the car industry- Eisenmann’s Stuttgart based manufacturing facility and the world famous Nurburgring. Each year the trip reaffirms our love for European cars and motorsport, and motivates those of us fortunate enough to make the journey to redouble our efforts at home.

Safari Truck

What do you do when you’ve spent your life shooting automatic weapons at gunnery ranges, hunting big game, flying helicopters, and blowing things up for pure entertainment, and suddenly need to grow up and have a family? What car do you get that will satisfy your need for ridiculous fun, but also convince your wife that you are a sane adult? If you ask our good friend Bob, he’d say that you get an X6M, and not just any X6M, but his in particular.

Driving Bob’s X6M is a lot like hunting game by shooting a missile launcher out of a moving helicopter- frightening to control and absolutely ridiculous. His ESS tune has given the car an easy 80+ horsepower gain, which would be enough for most, but Bob didn’t stop there. IND helped Bob add SuperSprint down pipes along with an Akrapovic exhaust system with carbon tips, BMW Performance front grilles, matte black side grilles, an OEM rear spoiler, Vorsteiner’s V104 wheels and a complete aerodynamics package from Vorsteiner consisting of a front lip and rear diffuser. As a complete package, Bob’s X6M is an absolute monster, and is a good consolation to Bob’s other hobbies!

Enjoy the photos!

Motorsport24 High Performance Radiator

German competition components manufacturer Motorsport24 has created a unique water cooling solution for the E9x M3. Their oversized water cooler is a direct fit in any E9x M3 and is hand built in their state of the art facility in the small town of Kalefeld Germany. The cooler is substantially larger than the factory radiator, and has been tested to be effective on courses like the Nurburgring, Hockenheimring, and the Motorsport Arena Oschersleben to allow the S65 engine to run for cooler, longer than cars equipped with a standard radiator.
