With this BMW E92 M3, you get two things: a beautiful looking Frozen Gray finish and a set of lightweight ADV.1 Wheels, all in one package. Frozen Gray simply looks perfect on a BMW. It might require extra work to keep it clean, but it’s a great looking finish that will make your car stand out.
Matte finishes first appeared on the E92 M3 models and was later added to most of the BMW lineup. Released in Frankfurt back in 2007, the E92/E90 M3 clearly shows some signs of old age. But, when you consider its impressive powerplant, aggressive looks and beefed up lines, it only needs a few touches to make it pop up right back again.
Cue aftermarket wheel companies. The addition of ADV8R Track Spec CS wheels gives the M3 a lightweight wheel upgrade that improves its exterior looks tenfold.
The wheels are a three-piece configuration, forged solution that fits perfectly this vehicle; thanks to their custom build for this exact application. Wheels come with sizes of 20×9.5 and 20×11.5 front and rear, respectively. Wheels are made with a 50/50 exposed hardware option. The finish is a custom Gunmetal for the wheel fronts and brushed aluminum for the lips.
This generation BMW M3 is powered by a naturally aspirated V8 and it’s the only M3 that revs to an insane 8,300 rpm – ecstatic sound note included. Its S65 V8 was named International Engine Of The Year from 2008-2012 in the 3.0 – 4.0 liter category. Performance wise, the E92 M3 is a monster on track and on the road, some magazine tests show 0 to 60 times of 3.9 seconds for the DCT-equipped models.
