Even though mentioning the words “BMW M3” and “bagged” in the same sentence makes some of our fans cringe, this Yas Marina Blue M3 build actually looks quite clean – if you can move over the whole bagged thing, that is. Coming from Vossen Wheels, it represents the epitome of the whole stanced culture with room to spare.
The outgoing generation of the M3 represents one of the most popular driver’s cars out there. Powered by a 3.0 Liter BMW TwinPower Turbo engine, the vehicle relies upon 420 horsepower and 486lb-ft of torque to achieve its impressive performance. This M3 can accelerate from 0-62mph (0-100km/h) in just 4.1 seconds and go flat out rather quickly to an electronically limited top speed of 155mph (250km/h). For a lot of owners, the M3 represents that perfectly balanced high-performance vehicle that’s also a great foundation for an aftermarket build.
When the owner decided to mod his car, the most important aspects that came into play were the wheels and suspension. For this build, the wheel setup came down to a set of Vossen x Work VWS-1 wheels. For those unfamiliar with this series, the Vossen x Work Series represents a joint collaboration between the U.S. based wheel maker and one of their most popular Japanese counterparts.
The series is defined by its two-piece welded construction. Owners have a choice to select a variety of configurations, which include the Flat Lip, Stepped Lip, and Stepped Lip with Overlapping Spokes configuration options available. These assembly configurations facilitate a variety of aesthetics as well as fitment options, allowing for a deep lip and flat face or deep concave face with overlapping spokes. Varying disc types also aid the fitment of bigger brakes.
For this build, these Vossen x Work VWS-1 wheels come in sizes of 20×8.5 and 20×10.5 in the front and rear, respectively. These sizing options are the usual norm for M3 builds these days, allowing for the best combination of looks/stance and fitment that allows daily use utility. Add the aforementioned airride suspension system and this BMW F80 M3 comes with an impressive stanced out look which you can witness in the detailed media gallery right below.
