I over-heard a friend saying “80% of the reason why I came to Cape Town for OTF was to see Mark’s M3.” I understand why. Now, let’s face it, we almost never see heavily lowered BMW M3’s in South Africa, especially cambered out to this extent. I first heard about this car when Amish Raga, from Euro-Worx, down in Port Elizabeth, installed air ride. Photographs started to surface, and I kept a watch on this build, originally sporting a set of OEM M3 CSL wheels. When a car is stock, it’s what the factory wanted it to look like, feel like, and drive like. Then you get us, a different breed of car people, who are never satisfied with just being “factory”. A personal touch needs to be added, and it may start in a small way, maybe a set of wheels, better tires, possibly an exhaust system, and eventually, well, you know where this ends up.
