Elsa - The 2015 Silverstone Metallic F80 M3
A new addition to the Orange County bimmer scene!
Making an Instagram debut in early July, Elsa joined the very active Orange County Bimmer scene. Within two weeks the mods began, beginning with a set of gloss black kidney grilles. Keeping the exterior mods moving, a gloss black painted trunk badge paired with an M Performance painted carbon fiber spoiler gave Elsa the awesome aggression in the rear that was needed over the factory wingless trunk. Modifications didn’t stop there though. Seeking diversification from the other M3/M4s in the scene, the owner of Elsa went with a JL Motoring V1 carbon fiber front lip and V3 Carbon Fiber Rear Diffuser and some Vorsteiner Diamond Black Exhaust Tips to match the trunk badge.
At this point Elsa’s modification list consisted primarily of cosmetic items. Being an M3 however the performance of the vehicle in its factory form impresses us still today. Right when we thought the mods were done, she showed up to our doors ready for more. Next up was a lowering with the help of Macht Schnell Sport Competition Lowering Springs. Already having aero, the car looked pretty aggressive. Now housing new springs, a much lower stance was given and Elsa really started to look angry. This left one major move for Elsa’s owner. HRE FF01 Wheels in HRE’s “FOG” finish sat perfectly within the wheels wells and gave the unique finish and taste that differed from the rest of the F80 M3s around. We can’t wait to see what is in store for the future of this build!
