This is one of the nicer E9x M3s I’ve come across and it has really nice mods with a rare Dakar Yellow exterior. The modification list isn’t long but its a true quality over quantity build which I prefer.
Starting with a 2011 M3 sedan, the car was ordered in a BMW Individual Dakar Yellow exterior and the seller says its the only sedan in the US this color. Dakar Yellow has a bit of history with M brand and it was once standard offering on the E36 M3. Since then I’ve seen it ordered on other M3s, M-coupes and even M5 sedans.
This M3 has been tracked a few times and the mods installed not only improve the looks but help performance as well. A set of Ohlins DFV coilovers were chosen to lower the car and also improve handling . Ohlins coilovers are awesome and they have just started to build a following for street car use even though they’re highly regarded suspension on motorcyclesand are standard equipment on high end Ducatis.
To improve braking performance the owner chose a front and rear set of Brembo GT calipers with huge 15″ rotors. The calipers were custom painted Dakar Yellow to match the car and a 18″ staggered set of Volk Racing TE37 wheels allow the huge rotors to fit.
