    Re: It's official, I'm a ricer...

    Lars997:

    @Way: This car carbon fiber modification is absolute over the top Can you give us more pictures? And as Mike already stated... we need an update on how the drive changed!

     +1 that is some insane work you've done with the car !! I'm a CF lover but you certainly tore the box apart ! please post some more pics. Also i hope you only use the car for track Smiley


    Re: It's official, I'm a ricer...

    Tecnocraft intake is installed! Looks and sounds great. The car feels more torquey on lower RPMS as well.


    Re: It's official, I'm a ricer...

    woow, looks amazing. A sound file would be great.

    Re: It's official, I'm a ricer...

     That looks amazing Mike !

    PS: could you post some pictures of the black wheels? a friend of mine has the M3 wheels on his 328i and is thinking of getting them painted but is not sure of either matte black or glossy.


    Re: It's official, I'm a ricer...

    Avoe: Thanks Avoe! I'll try get one tonight. Pity I didn't take a before video to compare, but I know it sounds different.

    pride: The sound from the engine is much louder, sounds more mean I think it has influenced the sound of the exhaust a tiny bit, but then again that's just what it feels like for me. Don't know if that's a definite.

    Enmanuel: Thanks E. I'll get some in the morning. It's dark outside and  you won't get the right colour with a flash.


    Re: It's official, I'm a ricer...

    Sexy, looks amazing!! Very well done Mike

    Re: It's official, I'm a ricer...

    Look what I found when I got home today! Perfect way to start the weekend!

    No fakes here

    Nice branding and adds some exclusiveness to the product. You get a serial number on a card.

    The rear diffuser.

    This is how you pack items, microfibre cloth to protect the powdercoated tips.

    Wow!

    Pipes are going on tomorrow. The front and rear diffusers will go on Monday when the body shop is open.

    Ordered a Dinan high flow charge pipe as I wasn't happy with the Tecnocraft version. I'm keeping the other Tecnocraft parts on though.

    The Vorsteiner CSL bootlid should be here in a month or two


    Re: It's official, I'm a ricer...

     i think the M3 became a build thread without you even planing on it. 


    Re: It's official, I'm a ricer...

    Mike S:

    They look perfect Mike Smiley

    As far as I remember, you would not go for Vorstiner CSL bootlid Smiley

    Re: It's official, I'm a ricer...

    Vorsteiner lip and diffuser is on! Now to wait for the Vorsteiner trunk lid.

    The AA exhaust is a bit on the loud side, but I can handle it. The exhaust looks amazing on the car though. I want to get some fly by videos for you all soon.

    Had the car remapped as well, the torque it now has is amazing. Feels like an AMG engine on low RPM!

    I'm contemplating some Vorsteiner monoblock wheels for the car, but that is still under consideration at the moment.

    Enjoy!

     


    Re: It's official, I'm a ricer...

     That car is just crazy Mike !! good mods, they make the car look more sporty but still classy.

    Re: It's official, I'm a ricer...

    Thanks guys, glad you like it!

    The car was remapped by someone in Europe. He has a local agent which downloads and uploads the files on their behalf. Car really feels amazing, hard to describe. Didn't expect such an improvement on an N/A car.

    Will get videos ASAP 


    Re: It's official, I'm a ricer...

    Ordered these wheels in glossy black today.

    20x9 front

    20x10.5 rears

    Should have them in 5-6 weeks. Now the wait Smiley

     take lots of pictures, lots of them !! 


    Re: It's official, I'm a ricer...

    Love these wheels, but would consider them in a mat black as on the picture.

    Is this going to be the "new" project now when you have finished the Mini ??

    /Thomas


    Re: It's official, I'm a ricer...

    Of course I will Enmanuel!

    Thanks tso, that wasn't the plan. I think it has already happened without me realising I'm already itching for Brembo's or Stoptech's

    The M3 has even more potential than the Mini Smiley Love the wheels. Not sure if I prefer them in gloss or matt - either way good choice


    --
    Off enjoying my car...

    Re: It's official, I'm a ricer...

    This is going to be a very interesting thread....can't wait to see where it will take Mike's M3

     


    Re: It's official, I'm a ricer...

    Ok, ordered Brembo BBK's in 380mm size for front and rear.

    Also ordered a Challenge USA carbon fibre and carbon kevlar trunk lid.

    Dinan high flow intake to go with the Technocraft stuff. I wasn't totally happy with the design of the Technocraft charge pipe section. So I am just replacing that with the Dinan version.


    Re: It's official, I'm a ricer...

    Mike, you are sick.. I am looking forward to see the CSL style trunklid installed.

    I suggest you make a second M3 with all the spareparts you take of the initial car. Keep us updated.

    Thomas


    Re: It's official, I'm a ricer...

    Mike, you will built a true E92 CSL Smiley  Stunning Smiley


    Re: It's official, I'm a ricer...

    Having thought about it, why not just swap to a M3 gts ?


    Re: It's official, I'm a ricer...

    tso:

    Having thought about it, why not just swap to a M3 gts ?

     Why buy it when he can build it and have so much fun in the process? 

    @Mike: will you paint the boot lid blue or leave it in carbon fiber? IMO you should paint it to keep the performance a bit more stealth.


    Re: It's official, I'm a ricer...

    I love it Mike

    You just love to screw.... what else a man needs as a hobby (and NO - I dont want to see anyone pointing to the sexiest women thread )

     


    Re: It's official, I'm a ricer...

    WOW Mike you are going all out now! Great additional orders!! Cannot wait, this should be a  beast.

    Re: It's official, I'm a ricer...

    I'd love the CSL style Trunk lid; the best I have seen so far

    How do you like the M3, in terms of performance, handling and fun factor,  Mike?
