Stay Classy!Posted: March 31, 2011
What car can you drive every day when you already have one of the most perfectly balanced E93 M3s ever built? When we worked with our client John to create his weekend car, we aimed for a perfect balance of understated performance and appearance that would reflect John’s personality. We wanted to build something with a more mature and refined style, and John’s E93 oozed refinement when it was completed and given it’s name- “The Silver Standard”.
So what sort of daily driver do you get someone who has an M3 like John’s Silver Standard? The answer has to be equally refined. We chose to help John create an E60 550i. Because this car is John’s daily driver, we took a fairly basic but effective approach to selecting it’s modifications, keeping in mind that we wanted to give John the refined yet aggressive appearance that he wanted while maintaining a basic mod list and relatively low budget.
