    IND Distribution creates a Portfolio project with Martin D.

    IND Distribution creates a Portfolio project with Martin D. - BMW M3 Forum (E90 E92)

    People all around the world have fallen in love with the automobile since it’s creation over 100 years ago. Entire lives have been dedicated and lost to our love for the automobile, and for the feeling that it can give. Anyone who wants to navigate the aftermarket performance industry must have a good understanding of the allure of the sports car and what it’s meant to humans since its invention. It’s always easy to spot those in the business who do not have a genuine love for cars, as their misguided intentions will always reveal themselves in the way they create their own project cars.

    Unfortunately, too many businesses in the car industry have a singular focus on the bottom line, and forget completely the love for automobiles that drew them into the business in the first place. When someone in this industry loses their passion and love for cars and begins to only view each car, each client as another dollar figure, all of their work suffers. They no longer service their clients as they should. The products these businesses choose to sell will often change, and the quality will suffer. These businesses will often choose to sell product built to a lower standard at a lower cost, simply to make money. These businesses will also create uninspired project cars, and this is perhaps where that lack of passion is most evident.

    Too many cars getting full page features in magazines these days are merely smoke and mirrors. Friends of mine in the magazine business have told me of cars showing up to photoshoots having to be pushed off of a trailer because the motor hasn’t run in months. I hear of cars with enormous widebody conversions and motorsport inspired liveries that still have factory braking components all the way down to brake pad, terrible quality tires of unkown branding and origin that barely have enough grip for the street, and a rear muffler as the car’s only performance modification. These cars are not an expression of a shop’s love for automobiles as they should be, but rather an inauthentic push for profit, and profit alone.

    This state of the business is unacceptable to IND as a company, and we knew we had to declare war. Fortunately for us, Martin contacted us shortly after, and his love for cars was clear in every telephone call conversation we had. Martin loved all things automotive and had previously owned many amazing cars from Europe and Japan. His tastes enveloped the entire spectrum of performance cars, and allowed us to create a car that was designed purely for his enjoyment. We did not have to pay any attention to current trends, to what is popular or what could be seen as unacceptable, but only to Martin’s own passions as a seasoned automotive enthusiast.

    Thank you, Martin, for giving us the opportunity to declare war on those who have forgotten what modifying cars is all about.

    The car looks great and definitely performance oriented, but I have to know the backstory on the blue chick.

    I want to know the deal with the blue chick as well.

    Car is hot, what can I say. I love the interior and cage work done.

    That front lip is big money but it is great. I'm also a fan of that rear diffuser!

    I think they were going for that race car look as this seems to be a track toy.

    i will say it again, that is the baddest M3 I have seen. Everything is perfect. Wing is sick! roll cage and wheel color works perfect with the grey!!!! Seats with stitching!!!!!

    edit: isnt a 315 a little wide for a 10.5 rear wheel. I believe the max you should run is 305. When you put too big of a tire on a rim it doesnt get the right support. Side wall gets softer. correct me if im wrong.
