Chicago-based IND reveals their first BMW i3 project. Known mostly for their amazing M projects, the aftermarket parts distributor is jumping into the tuning market for electric vehicles.

“As always, when BMW breaks new ground, we at IND do our best to follow suit,” says the company. “We have done everything possible to create new parts for the i3 and i8 cars with our technology partners, and are working hard to create a full host of components designed to help the BMW i enthusiast personalize their cars.”

The i3 project kicked off with a series of visual upgrades and more carbon fiber parts. First, the electric BMW received IND painted reflectors, gloss black foglight surrounds, gloss black front bumper slats and gloss black grille surrounds.


Next, the folks over at 3D Design paired up IND to install a carbon fiber front lip painted in gloss black. The side mirrors were also swapped out for new carbon fiber mirror caps.

Since a BMW won’t a BMW without a proper stance, a set of Cobra lowering springs bring the i3 closer to the ground.


New shoes were also needed so HRE Wheels donated to the project a set of their 303 M wheels painted in electric blue color on the outer barrel and face and with a gloss charcoal inner barrel.


The result? A fantastic i3 that will look even quirkier on the road. Talk about an instant head turner.
