Chicago-based tuner IND worked with one of their customer to customize an E92 BMW M3. The unique M3 comes with an equally unique color: Atlantis Blue.

Here is how the story began:

“The progression of this Atlantis Metallic (paint code 399) coupe began with a simple phone call regarding painted reflectors. Like many BMW fans, the owner of this M3 was a bit apprehensive about the Atlantis Metallic paint color, and was unsure about his color choice. The order with BMW was fresh and was eligible for cancellation at a moment’s notice. To help our client confirm his color choice, IND sent painted reflectors long before the car was delivered to our client. Once the paint sample was in hand a series of phone calls and even an in-person meeting at BimmerFest West took place, in an effort to string together a general outline for 399’s first iteration. It was clear the owner had a passion for detail and perfection, and knew that he wanted his modifications to standout, but also possess an “OEM plus” feel.”


Next IND decided to give the M3 Coupe a bit more power. The ESS VT2-625 kit was installed and was paired with the Eisenmann Sport Exhaust.

Inside the M3 gets an upgraded look. The newly released Awron gauge with its bright OLED display integrates seamlessly with the sporty interior. n continuation with their goal of seamless integration, Awron even offers the display with a specially machined ESS velocity stack capable of receiving both an IAT and Boost sending unit adapter.

The dashboard gets a badge that identifies the color code of the Atlantis Blue (399). The seats are covered in Alcantara while the door panels gets blue inserts.
