With just a subtle difference between the Alpine White and Mineral White, for the casual onlooker, the two exterior finishes will look the same. However, Mineral White does come with a bit of a darker twist to it, delivered by a flatter overall look. In most lighting scenarios, both will help the BMW M3 look pretty damn gorgeous, putting its curvaceous lines in full view. This particular BMW F80 M3 build comes from AUTOCouture Motoring. It features a bevy of aftermarket parts and additions, giving the M3 a more aggressive exterior note overall.
The current BMW M3 is powered by a 3.0 Liter BMW TwinPower Turbo engine, shared by the BMW F82 M4. In both versions, the engine delivers 425 horsepower and 486lb-ft of torque. When paired with the optional 8-Speed DCT (Dual Clutch Transmission) system, it will sprint from 0-62mph (0-100km/h) in as low as 4.1 seconds. To many, the M3 is the perfect foundation for a classy aftermarket build.
For this Mineral White BMW M3, it all started with exterior cosmetic and carbon fiber touches. First, the OEM GTS hood was installed. Found on the more track-oriented BMW M4 GTS, the hood gives that aggressive look the front-end needed. The vehicle’s front also features a Vorsteiner GTS carbon fiber front lip. Moving onto the back of the vehicle, you’ll find a PSM rear diffuser and PSM V2 trunk spoiler, featuring its top portion color-matched to the M3’s exterior color scheme.
The most impactful additions come in the wheel department. The tuner equipped this M3 with a set of HRE S104 forged wheels. Featuring sizes of 20×8.5 and 20×11.5 in the front and rear, respectively, these wheels come with a charcoal face, gloss black barrels and polished lips, perfectly completing the M3’s exterior looks. Behind these beautiful wheels, you’ll find a set of Brembo GT Style III rotors with custom painted frozen silver brake calipers by iND Distribution. Finally, a Rogue Engineering race stud kit helps the wheels stay attached in high-performance cornering situations.
