As I've said time and time again, IND's best asset are our amazing clients. Every day we have the privalage of encountering some of the most unique and driven people in the United States and internationally, and it is with the help of these individuals that we are able to build our Portfolio Projects.

This newest Portfolio Project is no exception. The owner of the car is a true car enthusiast and appreciates not only European sports cars, but also their Japanese rivals. We have decided to embrace his enthusiasm for sports cars of every origin and are working to create an M3 that reflects this.

IND is cooperating with the best manufacturers in Japan, and are importing some absolutely unique parts for the car. We have also worked with the best from Norway, ESS tuning, to give the car the power it needs to compete with it’s rivals from Europe and Japan. Our first step, however, was to visit the fabricators at Fall Line Motorsports in our home city of Chicago to create a roll bar that is truly world-class. Here are the results:

So, if the roll cage is not designed or intended to protect occupants in the event of a roll over or crash, what is it intended to do (besides draining the customer's wallet :hihi:)? hmmm ??????

Yes, yes, I realize their lawyer told them to add that plaque.

Fall Line puts that disclaimer on every single cage they make, including their competition cars. Got to keep the lawyers happy ouich

That is one serious front lip! The speed bumps in the UK would make mincemeat of that carbon fibre.

Another treat from Kreisseig Japan rolled into IND's email inbox over the weekend. The photo of the completed exhaust system with the tips and valves installed was a welcome sight to all of us, as we have been waiting patiently for the system to be hand built in Kreisseig's facility.

As we expected, the exhaust is an absolute work of art. The custom "trumpet tips" Kreisseig built for us are a beautiful addition, and the hand laid welds look like the best robotic welds.

In this photo you can see the added exhaust valve, which means that this is a finished muffler. The valve actuator is welded to the exhaust as the very last step of production to ensure proper operation of the valve system. Each valve actuator is hand built in Kreisseig's facility in Japan, unlike many other companies that simply outsource that part. This ensures that Kreisseig's valve system is the most reliable available.

WHat a great car! It is one of the few rare Frozen Grey BMW M3 for the US?
That is the norm Space Grey.

IND, the car is pulling together great.. can't wait to see the finished result. The lip and exhaust are both pieces of art.. the exhaust a little more, but the lip looks great on the M3.
