A good friend of ours, Mike, just posted up some new pics of his “daily driver”, E92 M3. This isn’t Mike’s first go at this and I’m sure it won’t be his last. He is an O.G. in the 350z community and an all around awesome guy.

Mod lists:

20″ Alloy Technic Mesh
380mm 6 piston Brembo GT brakes
Vorsteiner GTS3 CF hood
Ericsson Amuse Boot Lid
Ericsson Amuse Rear Bumper
Ericsson Amuse M480 Ti Exhaust
Dinan Intake
Dinan Reflash
Dinan F Anti-Sway Bar
Eibach Springs
Hamann Replica CF Front Lip
Turner Motorsports 90mm Stud Conversion
…and lots of other little things.. more to come in 2011


CSL, 350Z Style

11 Oct

First time many might see some of these genuine parts in the flesh. The Amuse kit shown here is known as the “CSL” kit. One look at the fender vents and you know why. While they aren’t my personal favorite fenders, the kit works as a whole. It’s disappointing that this has been replicated so many times, and almost everyone rocks theirs as if it’s genuine. Big time props to the owner for using the genuine parts. It’s even sporting the very rare, and expensive, dry carbon Amuse hood! Awesome photographs too, which you can check out at http://shutterlit.blogspot.com


Survey Sayssss………. NO BUENO!

Sorry Shino and Dom, your companies’ high-end seats and top of the line brakes are not enough to save this vehicle from its inevitable demise.

Proof that a laundry list of high-end top dollar parts will not necessarily equate to a dope ride…

PSA: If you’re a poser trying to front your replica as authentic you WILL GET CALLED OUT!

A funny thing happened today, well I’ll let you guys read the thread. Luckily for the OP he deleted it (essentially admitting he is lying and trying to avoid public embarrassment; thankfully the moderators decided to put the thread back up, but locked it,  before I was about to get “in that ass.”

Biggie said it best in his song Sky’s the Limit:

…I’m sewing tigers on my shirt and alligators. Ya wanna see the inside, huh, I see you later…

Not bad.

ASM front Bumper, Amuse Rear Wing, Front and Rear Gold Endless Big Brake Kit, Ohlins DFV, Fujitsubo Titanium Exhaust… not bad at all.


Shaun’s Build … another Update from the Body Shop

29 Jun

Just a few updated pics from the body shop this weekend.  The Amuse pieces are primed and everything is blocked and just about ready to go.  Rich asked me to come up this weekend to make some misc choices for the car.  One of the most important decisions that I had to make was the color … and it’s going to be, drum roll please … BMW’s Alpine White.

I think Kwame and Adam have talked me into a small simple sound system, too.  You guys are a bad influence, lol.


What could have been…

23 Jun

I was cleaning up some old pictures and found these.  They were supposed to be my street wheels after the Superleggera kit was on.  Sadly, they won’t fit without running a stretch tire/ lots of camber and a huge spacer … and, I didn’t want to have to completely align the car every time I swapped wheels for a track day.

I have only one thing to say … sadface


Shaun’s Amuse Superleggera Update

9 Jun

Many thanks to Kwame for stopping by the body shop to snap some pics and perform a little maintenance.  

All of the pieces are being test fitted onto the car … and if I do say so myself, this is going to be one awesome looking car. And for our readers that may not know, this is the real deal – none of that fake junk going on here.

After seeing all of the pictures that Kwame sent over, I’ve come to the conclusion that I need a new exhaust as the Greddy Evo TT does not look right with the rear bumper. I also need to find a set of wheels for the street. The Fikse’s that you see here will be my track wheels – that’s right ladies and gents this car is going to see heavy use at the track. This list of things to do never seems to come to an end.

What’s next? Deciding on the right shade of white for the car.


Shaun’s Car is on the Move!

9 May

FINALLY!!!!! Today she finally left the shop, and now resides at the body shop that is going to fit and paint the Amuse Superleggera kit! Some quick shots of it being loaded onto the tow truck. He seems sorta blase about it, but Kwame and I are stocked to see this thing finished. As much as I love this car, and Shaun’s a close friend, it’s really good to have to space back

You have to make sure that the fenders clear the wheels and the wheels clear the brakes before you take it too paint.

Sorry Shaun, I tried to wait for you to post these but you take too damn long. 🙂

*** Edit: BTW that is an Endless racing 6 caliper with a 370mm rotor!****





Yup, many years later and its still sick!
