iND returns with a new, exciting M project. This time around, the Chicago-based company takes on the challenge to enhance two already amazing M automobiles for the same customer: the E92 M3 and F10 M5.

Here is how the story of the project came together:

“Our clients are our best asset” has been repeated here at IND for so many years that it has become a sort of mantra for all of us here. Clients like Louis are proof of our consistent good fortune.

Louis approached us in need of consultation for his E92 M3. Although initially we were talking some small steps to improve the M3, the car eventually transformed into the beast seen in these photos. We are fortunate to work with a client like Louis because he allows us creative freedom, and his open mind and creative nature give us the oppotunity to try new color schemes and combinations on his cars. The M3 is a result of this creative freedom, with the Lamborghini Rosso Vik BBS FI wheels and ESS Supercharger manifold attesting to the fact that Louis is not afraid to add a bit of color and excitement to his modified cars.

His F10 M5 takes a somewhat more introverted approach, while still allowing for a unique modified appearance. Combined with an Eisenmann exhaust and 3D Design aero parts, the custom painted HRE wheels are the center piece of the car. Louis and IND chose HRE’s matte bronze finish as a base, and applied a real gold leaf insert inside the HRE logo found in the spoke of each wheel, along with the HRE center cap. After the gold leaf was applied we used a custom clear coat to allow the original matte bronze finish to truly shine.
