Considered by many one of the most beautiful color choices for the BMW F80 M3, Sakhir Orange stands out with its redish shade that enhances the sporty and dynamic lines of the new M3 and M4. The color first debuted on the BMW M6 and judging by its popularity, we expect to see it as a standard color on future BMWs as well.

The owner of this BMW M3 took the car to European Auto Source for some carbon fiber upgrades, starting with a kidney grille, a rear diffuser, trunk spoiler and a front lip, all made of carbon fiber.

Moving inside, the sporty cabin gets even sportier with a new Alcantara-wrapped steering wheel, carbon fiber dashboard and shift knob, and a carbon fiber and Alcantara handbrake.

To allow the vehicle some better sound, the tuning shop swapped out the OEM downpipes for a set of Zima Motorsports downpipes. Featuring a catless design and a black ceramic thermal coat, the free-flowing Zima downpipes extract additional power and torque from the S55, and decrease turbo lag. You will also notice a better throttle response with this setup.

    I’m not sure downpipes “extract” anything, especially horsepower and torque. They might unburden the engine, but is a push not a pull. Systematics, sure but these Ms are already tweaked. I need to see dyno charts. I’d think you would need a reprogram to use it.
