While this Silverstone M3 may be pretty, it isn't out to grab your attention, it's out to pass you. Considering it's fitted with an ESS VT2-625 supercharger system and an Akrapovic Evolution titanium exhaust, it really won't have much of a problem blowing by most cars on a straightaway. Even so, this E90's primary concern isn't all about straight line performance, it's about fast lap times.
Top of the line JRZ RS Pro coilovers give this M3 its exceptional handling performance, while AP Racing front & rear big brake kits provide lap after lap of fade-free stopping power. A set of APEX ARC-8 wheels wrapped in sticky rubber are used when at the track, but in its street mode this E90 runs the stock ZCP wheels. For its most recent visit to our shop, we took this M3 to the next level of track performance by installing Powerflex Race bushings in the subframe and differential. These hard compound polyurethane bushings eliminate unwanted movement and deliver more power to the tarmac, providing extremely planted and confident driving dynamics.
Just by looking at it, this subtle M3 won't give you much indication of what's underneath, so consider yourself warned now in case you happen to encounter this sedan on either the street or track. Enjoy.

This frequent customer of ours and the owner of this Interlagos Blue E90 M3 is addicted to track days. When this car first came into our shop it was in 100% bone stock form; that same day we installed a 620hp supercharger kit. Since then we've seen this car slowly evolve into the subtle, purpose built track-day/daily-driver machine that it is now. Equipped with a set of high-end and exclusive JRZ coilovers, super lightweight 10" wide APEX wheels, ultra sticky Hankook Ventus TD tires, powerful AP Racing brakes and Vorshlag adjustable camber plates, this is one of the best feeling M3's we've had the pleasure of driving. Here are some photos by Cali Photography from a recent track day event at Sonoma Raceway. Enjoy.
