This incredible looking Supercharged E90 M3 came into the shop about a year ago and somehow, this batch of photos slipped through the cracks. That’s why we’re sharing this with you now, because this car’s too gorgeous to let go unseen. This car came into the shop to visit Sr Mod Expert Alan, and we just couldn’t pass up the opportunity to shoot it.
Rocking a customized Carbon Fiber Arkym Front Bumper for BMW M3 and Gloss Black Kidney Grilles, this E90 BMW M3 Exterior is simultaneously clean and incredibly imposing. While at first glance it might look like a CPS Front Lip for M3, but closer inspection reveals that this is actually integrated directly into the bumper for a really slick look.
Its visual aggression isn’t without cause, as under the hood the high-revving 4.0L V8 has been fitted with a Harrop Supercharger to significantly boost horsepower and torque, making this already quick super saloon into an absolute German rocket.
The interior has been dressed up with the BMW Performance Carbon Fiber Interior trim for E9X 3-Series, lending some much needed visual interest to the dash.
It’s worth noting that this particular M3 is a true purist’s car, sporting all three pedals for a MANUAL TRANSMISSION, just as all real sports cars should be equipped – meaning that Harrop Supercharged V8 can be milked for every last RPM before the next shift. Sure, on paper a DCT is technically faster, but it’s not as much fun as rowing your own. It’s just not.
The M Performance Steering Wheel has been dressed up with a Carbon Fiber Steering Wheel Trim piece, complete with a cutout for the ///M.
The shifter hasn’t been neglected either, in place of the factory unit, a BMW Performance Shift Knob with leather shifter boot has been fitted, nestled snugly into the Carbon Fiber Shifter Console trim. Something satisfying to grip as you slam through the gears really adds that something to the visceral experience of a manual transmission.
The LED Fender Turn Signals have been equipped with body-color matched Fender Grilles, creating a very distinct look.
The rear end of the car is just as unique. The OEM BMW E9X M3 exhaust has been replaced with a Remus Exhaust for BMW M3, spec’d out with the optional angle-cut Carbon Race style tips for an aggressive and distinctly German aesthetic.
A set of Carbon Fiber Mirror Covers adorns each side of the M3’s aerodynamic mirrors to keep the carbon fiber trimmed theme cohesive and well-integrated.
