IND Anthology

The aphorism “it’s not the destination, but the journey that counts” is a well worn one, and a lesson that can be applied to any life situation. When looking back at the development of IND’s portfolio service thus far, this old wisdom applies perfectly. More than a means to an end or part of some master plan for IND’s success, IND’s Portfolio Service has made the projects themselves the goal all of us are working for. Working with each client to customize their M3 to their specifications has become an opportunity and a privilege here at IND, and I’d like to thank all of the readers for helping us realize these opportunities.

We’ve had a comprehensive thread showcasing our cars for some time, but wanted to create a quick and easy interface to let people view each car at their own pace.

With that, here are each of the Portfolio Projects to date, from our own E92 M3 (one of the first modified M3s in the US), all the way to IND’s Red Death, Silver Standard, Blue Max, and many others.

Building the F10 M5 Piece By Piece

We are in the process of assembling the cosmetic line for the S63tu powered beast

Spawned from a paint shop all of us at IND strive to offer solutions for every vehicle application. Whether it is a painted reflector or a engine cover we are always looking for new ways to enhance the aesthetics of a vehicle. This approach has almost rendered us with a sick obsession for cosmetic accessories. A obsession that will not be tamed by the delayed F10 M5 production in North America. There is a old saying that you can build a car from the parts catalog. With the summer delivery date for North America we will test this theory.

Last week we received a modest size FedEx express shipment from Munich. Please let us know what you would like to see and we will try our best to accommodate the request. As the availability of parts increases so will our offerings. If anyone has any questions please don’t hesitate to contact us. More paint schemes to come.

Meaner than Hell Midnight Run!

We’ve always said that no matter how impressive Green Hell’s capabilities become after years of modifications and changes, it should always remain a street car first and foremost, and you cannot have a good street car without going on your occasional midnight romp through the city. Green Hell is no garage queen, so on Chicago’s absolute last warm night before our yearly white-out of a winter hit the city we went out with the owner of the car to enjoy it one last time.


Full house @ Motorsport24

Aside from access to some of the most unique and well made racing parts in the world, working with Motorsport 24 as their exclusive North American distributor has the added benefit of access to some amazing eye candy! The staff at Motorsport 24 had a full shop this weekend, and sent us this amazing photo.
