Considering the number of Individual Finishes that were offered for the BMW E92 M3, it’s hard to pick the best. Going with LeMans Blue as a finish for your BMW E92 M3 is clearly a great idea. This finish makes the curvaceous lines of the M3 come into the spotlight perfectly, adding that classy touch to the high-performance coupe.

Since the introduction of the BMW F8X series (BMW M3 and BMW M4), the good old naturally aspirated V8 powered M3 slowly began to decline in sales popularity. However, with the drop in pricing and more and more aftermarket parts becoming available, the previous-generation M3 slowly shoed into its role as a tuning world darling. This BMW M3 is powered by the potent 4.0 liter V8 engine, delivering 414 horsepower and 300 lb-ft of torque. Consequently, the E92 M3 will sprint from 0-62mph (0-100km/h) in 4.3 – 4.5 seconds. The vehicle will reach a top speed of 155mph (250km/h).
This owner considered the E92 M3 a perfect foundation for a JDM Style build. While this look won’t be everybody’s cup of tea, the M3 looks aggressive, its exterior appeal is really there and the sporty stance will certainly make wheel aficionados drool all over it.
The project was done by European Auto Source who handled all the installs.
One of the first items to get installed on this vehicle were the wheels. This beautiful LeMans Blue BMW M3 sports a set of beautiful Volk TE37 SL Black Edition wheels.
The Volk Racing TE37SL (Super Lap) Black Edition wheel by RAYS Engineering is even lighter than the standard TE37, in turn making it a fantastic option for the track enthusiast or racer. For this BMW M3, the wheels come sized 18×9.5 and 18×10.5 in the front and rear, respectively. The wheels feature a Pressed Black finish with Neon Yellow decals.
Furthermore, the braking performance is improved thanks to a Brembo GT brake kit – in the front and rear. The yellow brake calipers look great, hidden slightly behind the black wheel spokes of the wheels themselves.
The E92 M3 was then optioned with a big Voltex Racing carbon fiber wing, mounted on the decklid. In turn, this gives the BMW M3 that JDM, time attack/drift look. Further additions come in form of the Autoteknick gloss black kidney grilles and a Mode Carbon Motorsport GT4 carbon fiber front splitter.
Probably the best final touch to this vehicle is the complete Akrapovic slip-on titanium exhaust system, affording the naturally aspirated V8 engine an impressive growl, coming from the quad exhaust pipes in the rear. Take a look at the full media gallery of this vehicle right below.
