"I wanna be like Mike" - Mike Lee's M3 on TE37 TT

My friend, Mike Lee, recently decided to give his 2009 BMW E92 M3 a new look. An aggressive tuner-themed appearance has been achieved with a new set of Volk Racing rollers. These TE37 Time Attack wheels feature offsets a bit more aggressive than the previous Alloy Technic set-up Mike was running. Thus, the new footwork has stanced this M3 quite nicely.

With a bevy of top-notch modifications, including an Ericsson Amuse exhaust, Ericsson Amuse boot lid trunk, Ericsson Amuse rear bumper, Vorsteiner carbon fiber hood, and Brembo Gran Turismo big brake kit, this is one of the sharpest M3s I have seen, in my opinion, rivaled only by some of the JDM-built IND M cars.

This is likely not the last you have seen of this project on JDMphasis... But for now, a few shots of Mike's new shoes. Enjoy.

Credit card clearance between caliper and wheel spoke.

After losing a battle to a manhole cover, Mike's carbon front lip is in the process of being replaced.

Aggressive rears.
