Sole Purpose: A Unique Twist on an Already Exclusive F80 M3

With it’s sole purpose to be a unique daily driver for the boring weekly commute, our customer ordered this Individual Fashion Grey F80 M3 6MT over Amaro Brown full leather interior last November.

Coming from a supercharged Alpine White on Black DCT E92 M3 daily, he was tired of the conventional color combination and lack of driver input from the DCT. His E92 M3 was on BBS LM’s and Brembo’s. With his F80 M3 he wanted to go a similar route with that same focus on quality but with an individual twist.

Of course we can’t leave anything alone and friends don’t let friends drive stock. Its safe to say, things escalated rather quickly. We wanted a unique take on the BBS LM’s from their standard, factory machined finish so we had them split and polished the lips. We sent the faces out to IND to be refinished in a black chrome in order to match the IND black chrome front grills and side gills.

For the Brembo’s, we were on the fence with doing the calipers completely in a Fashion Grey finish, but we didn’t feel it would do the car justice. So we decided to tie in the gorgeous Amaro interior but with a Porsche twist. The calipers were painted in a classic Carrera Brown with Fashion Grey classic lettering.

The headlights were blacked out by ONEighty and we added touches of Fashion Grey inside with little body color painted accents.

Wanting to maintain the EDC for its daily duties, he chose to lower the car on the KW HAS kit. An Eventuri intake in their regular carbon fiber finish fits perfectly under the hood with the factory CF strut bar.

For the exhaust he chose Akrapovic downpipes and Akrapovic rear section, leaving the center stock, providing a clean refined sound.

An ACM Flash Tune opens up the car’s new found power being making the most of the Akrapovic Downpipes. A Vorsteiner front lip and rear diffuser were his aero pieces of choice. To tie them in we went with PSM carbon side skirt extensions.

On top of the trunk is an OEM spoiler with a Fashion Grey CRT stripe. Lastly he opted for a Rogue Engineering Octane short shift kit.  Prime example of a tastefully modded, exclusive F80 M3.
