Ray's - E92 M3

"When I started modifying cars, I remember staying up at night browsing forums to look for Indonesian modified cars. This was when I discovered Ray's BMW E46 with plates "INDOMI". If you've been in the car scene for the last 15 years, live in Melbourne, been to car shows such as 100mm and Black Label Invitational, then you would know Ray and how influential he's been these last couple of years helping friends spend money on their cars.

We love Ray and all the stuff he does for the car community, today we're featuring his personal car a 2008 BMW M3 Manual." - Alfa Rein

  • Tell us about your car, what it is, how long you had it for and why you bought it? It is a 2008 BMW E92 M3 manual. I've had it for 6 years now. I've always loved it since it was first released in 2007. The V8 engine is intoxicating.  

  • What do you drive daily? 2011 Audi A4 B8 wagon, 1996 Audi A4 B5 wagon
  • We've seen you with some very nice wheels in the past, were there any wheels that you regret selling? Which one? Definitely regret every single set of wheels i ever sold but the BBS LM-Rs were definitely my biggest regret. Love those wheels a lot

  • Which mod were you happy with the most and why? I'm absolutely in love with the airlift suspension that I installed about a year ago, best mod hands down. Totally transformed the look of the car. 

  • What's next for your car? Hoping to run a new wheel setup next and possibly carbon intake plenum
  • What's your hobby bro? anything car related haha hanging out with car mates and i also love collecting rare old school steering wheels

  • If you could give one piece of advice to someone who's new to the car modifying world, what would it be? Dont settle for cheap rep wheels =)
  • If your wife tells you one day "I need you to stop spending thousands on wheels". What wheels would you build next? Hahahahaha i always say its easier to ask for forgiveness then permission, and on that note, 3pc bbs alpina coming in hot
