Whether purists like it or not, the price of used BMW E92 M3s continue to increase, mostly because of BMW’s last naturally-aspirated engine. The E92 M3 is also one of the most tuned BMWs to-date, with countless projects being worked on every month. From carbon fiber exterior touches to suspension mods and performance upgrades, every tuner on the market is looking to improve upon what already is a great sports car. Take for example the folks at European Auto Source who have recently worked on an Alpine White E92 M3.

The BMW E92 M3 comes with the well-known, amazingly sounding and powerful 4.0 Liter V8 engine. The naturally-aspirated engine delivers 414 horsepower with peak torque of 295 lb-ft (400 Nm). Therefore, this allows the vehicle to sprint from 0-62mph (0-100km/h) in 4.1 seconds. The M3 will achieve a top speed of 155mpg (250km/h). For this reason, the E92 M3 is clearly one of the best foundations for an aftermarket build.

In the light of all the aftermarket options available, there are also many a company that design splitters, spoilers and canards for the M3. One of these companies is the US-based Forcewerkz who are the people behind this gorgeous front spoiler. They have created a front lip spoiler for the E92 M3 that was directly inspired by the spoiler utilized for the M3 GT4 racecar.

Accordingly, the lip spoiler not only yields improved looks, but it is also rather functional: it reduces lift and increases downforce, yielding better vehicle stability in high-speed corners and similar situations. Furthermore, the spoiler comes with built-in air ducts. These are used to feed cool air into the braking system, thus reducing brake fade and allowing for later braking in racetrack and twisty road driving scenarios overall.

This Alpine White BMW E92 M3 is the perfect example for a clean and simple aero part.

After the spoiler was installed, it was time to add the remaining aftermarket touches. Namely, the owner opted for a set of Gold Finished HRE FF01 wheels. Some purists will likely cringe at the thought of a gold wheel, but the combination of Alpine White and Gold looks fits well on this E92 M3.

Additionally, the owner wanted to clean up the vehicle’s exterior looks, so he added iND painted kidney grilles, side reflectors and the trunk badge. Furthermore the M3’s ride height is lowered, thanks to a set of KW HAS (Height Adjustable Sleeve Over Spring Kit). Finally, the additional carbon fiber parts – the mirror caps, roof, the Arkym Aerosport rear diffuser and rear decklid spoiler, complete the build.
