S63tu Engine cover with a little Motorsport love

I think my painter has some sore hands after this one

Brilliant white + Motorsport colors

Looks awesome is it a one off, or will these be offered for sale at one point.

The craftsmanship looks top notch (not surprising from iND) but I'm not really feeling this. I've seen this on numerous E9X M3's and thought it was a little too over the top - even for that crowd.

How often is your hood open for it to really be noticed?

I am not planning on having it installed all the time, just to avoid issues due to heat (fading, bubbling etc)

It's more for the times when it's on display for the local Tuner or at car shows.

other than cosmetics are there any real advantages to having this on the engine bay?

It's from IND so I know the work quality is amazing but not for me.
That's just IMO, to each their own ...

It will at least add another 0.00000075hp as white will not soak the engine heat as much...










Nope. Just a trial to see how it changes the cosmetics of the engine bay

love the paint theme. Hate how the F10 M5's engine cover looks like its off centered compared to the intercoolers and those silver piping. The old V10 looked so much better and Audi does have Bmw beat when it comes to engine aesthetics. That said I'd still take this over any other motor out there now though lol

Meh, I don't like how the line thickness is changing with the contour of the cover. I prefer the M3 cover where the line thickness is consistent. Hard to tell but it looks like there is a bit of bleed through from the red to white.

I like your thinking. Agreed as well.
