One of the most exciting feelings is taking delivery of a new car. Regardless if brand new, or new to you, the thoughts start to flow and ideas start to form. We were starting with such a good base for a build, a very clean, low mile, 6mt, garage kept, N54 E92. Having a clean car is extremely important as this will avoid all potential unplanned issues as the build progresses. With many different combinations on build routes, we ultimately decided on the following: Aggressive, Clean, Reliable, Stand Out.
For styling we went with a Pandem body kit, this widened the fenders by quite a bit. The Pandem kit includes front and rear over fenders, rear bumper extensions, front bumper replacement, and trunk spoiler.
With a solid direction in mind, the tear down and test fit begins. Removing everything out of the way and properly storing it makes for good organization early on. All four fenders had to be cut and welded to make room for the new wheels. Rivets were inserted to secure the kit in place. All worked was performed by LTMW who are leaders in the aftermarket modification world, the car was in great hands.
To really set off the front end, we added a Duke Dynamics vented hood that not only goes with the aggressive styling of the car but also functions as a heat extractor. The hood paired with an upgraded oil cooler, intercool and radiator courtesy of CSF Radiators will keep the car running cool in different weather conditions for miles ahead. We decided to spice things up with a personal hand painted touch.
Our friends at LTMW also took the lead for body work and paint. In many instances aggressive is associated with over done. Knowing when to stop is important for a clean build. Instead of a complete color change, we decided to keep the gorgeous Montego Blue Metallic paint and color match the Pandem Widebody Kit.
With the kit secured, it was time to move on to a very important aspect of styling. Wheels, tires, and suspension. This combination is critical as the stance is one of the most important aesthetics features. We opted for KW V3 coilers as we wanted to achieve the low, aggressive look while still maintaining full functionally and driving experience. Paired with Pandem 6666 wheels and wrapped in sticky Toyo Tires ready to take on any road ahead.

The Pandem 6666 wheels were sent off to be refinished in a classic polished lip and brushed center combination.
When it came time for the interior, the same exterior theme carried on. We were able to source a mint set of Coral Red OEM E92 seats. The balance of blue exterior and red interior really made the car pop. To tie the rest of the interior together with accents. Mashimarho provided us with an aggressive custom flat bottom steering wheel. This wheel added extra thickness and grip and really enhanced the driving dynamics of the car.

For motor and performance, all routine maintenances were completed including an aggressive but reliable tune, downpipes, and more to add a little go to all the show.
Assembled and completed, the E92 was sent over to Detail Union where they completed a color correction detail and covered the entire car and wheels with ceramic pro coating to protect the paint and make for easier exterior maintenance for years to come. Mention STAND OUT and receive 10% of service.
