Inglorious M3: F80 in Individual Grigio Telesto (bawnjorno)
Although this F80 is already an Individual color, our customer wanted to put his own touch on his F80 M3. Looking to accent the Individual Grigio Telesto color, we added carbon fiber around the car with M Performance front splitters, RKP side skirts, M Performance trunk spoiler, M Performance mirror caps, and 3D Design diffuser.
The Akrapovic system completes the carbon fiber out back, while providing the perfect tone for the S55. In search of more power, we went with VRSF catless downpipes and a DME stage 2 flash.
We lowered the car with the KW HAS kit and fitted satin black 20" BBS FI-R wheels tightly underneath. In the front, to tie in the grills, we had the headlights blacked out by ONEighty just to bring the tone down in the shrouds.
The big brake kit was on his to do list when he first arrived, but we held off for a few months for winter to pass. While we waited, we deliberated on colors. In addition to colors, rather than choosing the standard Brembo GT system, we got on the list for the arrival of Brembo's B-M6/4 calipers. Lamborghini's color pallet was continued from the Grigio Telesto body onto the brakes with their "Arancio Argos" painted calipers done through Brembo.
With no room to hide behind black FI-R's, the new caliper design in that orange makes quite a statement and was well worth the wait.
We finished up this last round of service with a Gintani crank hub as a preventative measure so he can enjoy this four season daily driver to the fullest.
Enough talk....enjoy the photos!
