I think in a way this project was a little bit like that saying... "If you can't have the best of what you want, make the best of what you have got".
I will tell you why... See the thing is, we really, really love V8's. The new F8X M3/4 platform is great but it just isn't a V8! I mean we could have ordered a brand new M4 with M-Individual Nardo grey paint but that's not as fun for us, we wanted to create something truly unique.
MODE presents to you the only Nardo Grey BMW E92 M3 to full OEM spec colour change to Audi's 'LY7C' Nardo Grey in Australia! The BMW was given a full inside and out, total paint change from Space Grey Metallic to Nardo Grey.
The E92 has also been treated to a number of 'MODE' goodies which really complete that somewhat OEM++ look we were going for.
The front splitter was sourced from a BMW E92 M3 GTS (You know that special edition orange M3 with the roll cage)
That perfect raked BMW stance is thanks to KW Suspension allowing the M3 to sit just right on the 20" Rotiform KPS Wheels measuring 9.5 in the front and 11.0 in the rear fitted with 255 front and massive 305 wide rear Nitto Invo Tyres.
On the rear a BMW Performance trunk lip in carbon and Vorsteiner Carbon Diffuser completes the look, along with Armytrix Valvetronic Exhaust and optional ceramic coated Matte Black Tips.
The front kidney grilles and side vents were treated to the gloss black BMW Performance items and the bonnet vents were painted gloss black too.
