2011 White BMW E92 M3 w/ Vorsteiner body kit, Racetech seats, Brembo brakes, Dinan intake +much more

This 2011 M3 is an on-going track car project. Our customer wants to keep the car streetable, but wants it to be safe, fast, and fun for open track days. Our first round of modifications has included some aesthetic tweaks, handling improvements, engine upgrades, safety equipment, and some other goodies. More recently the customer has decided to have the car as more of a track car with only very occasaional street use. With that in mind we swapped the Recaro Sportster CS seats for a set of fixed mounted Racetechs and mounted a set of BFG R1's on some Forgeline wheels.

Upgrades include:

  • Dinan intake
  • Active Autowerke lightweight crankshaft pulley
  • Active Autowerke software
  • GMP customized exhaust
  • Bilstein PSS10 coil-over suspension
  • HRE Wheels wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport tires for the street
  • Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires on the stock wheels for the track
  • Vorsteiner Carbon Fiber front spoiler (covered in matte-clear vinyl)
  • Vorsteiner Carbon Fiber rear diffuser (covered in matte-clear vinyl)
  • Vorsteiner Carbon Fiber trunk lid
  • Autopower Industries Roll Bar (powdercoated white to match)
  • Racetech seats
  • Hardwired V1 Radar Detector
  • Carbon Fiber look roundels front and rear
  • Carbon Fiber steering wheel insert
  • Matte-clear vinyl cover on OE carbon roof
  • Matte-clear coat paint on carbon kidney grille trim

Recaro Sportster CS Seats w/ custom GMP electric sliders

The seats in the M3 are a whole lot of function in quite a few ways. Our customer knew that he wanted a racing seat but did not want to lose the normal luxury of the BMW factory power seats. Our solution was simple; turn the Recaro Sportster seats into power seats by adding power sliders.  In order to do this a set of factory M3 electric seat sliders were sourced in to replace the provided sliders from Recaro. With those off the seat it was time to start building the brackets to attach them to the Recaros. One of the issues that we wanted to make sure to be aware of was height, when building the brackets constant fitting was required to make sure the seat did not rise to high. In the end with the newly built brackets the overall height ended up being just a tad lower than the factory seats and, with the M3 spending time on the track, it allows more head room for a helmet. After the seats were able to be bolted into place the next step was to add a switch to control the movement of the seat. Since we were using factory power sliders it only made since to use factory harnesses as well in order to keep a clean O.E. look. A few other modifications were made during the wiring process in order to deal with an air bag light by transferring the occupancy sensors over to the Recaros. With all the wiring finished the seats were bolted into place, plugged in to the factory connectors and put to work.
