California-based specialist European Auto Source has released photos of their latest project based on a BMW E90 M3 Sedan, dressed in the Dakar Yellow individual paint.
The special color is complemented by a 3D Design carbon fiber rear diffuser, BMW European front bumper, BMW Performance carbon fiber mirror caps, BMW Performance carbon fiber rear spoiler, Challenge GT carbon fiber E90 roof, Vorsteiner GTS-V carbon fiber front spoiler and IND painted cosmetic pack.
The technical upgrades include an Akrapovic Evolution Titanium exhaust system, a Brembo 380mm six-piston at the front and four-piston at the rear painted in Dakar Yellow, an ESS Tuning VT2-600 Supercharger system and a KW Club Sport coilover system.
The bimmer rolls on Titanium BBS FI wheels sizing 19×9.5 ET28 at the front and 19×10.5 inch ET23 at the rear. The wheels are shod in Michelin Pilot Supersport Tires in the size 255/35/19 front and 275/35/19 rear. Black Chrome BBS Limited Edition locking lug nut set finishes off the wheel set.
Inside the cabin, the US tuner fitted an Alcantara headliner, BMW Performance seats, Macht Schnell ashtray gauge pod and stack gauges for boost, oil temp and air/fuel.
I was reading an article recently with BMW Motorsport Division and the next M3 may again be NA. If it does turn out to be a FI unit, I very much hope the throttle response is instantaneous.
