We’ve previously featured an Atacama Yellow M3 sedan and now here’s the first E93 M3 convertible in Atacama Yellow.

Atacama yellow is currently only available on the Z4 and must be ordered as a BMW Individual color for any other models, including the M3. The yellow looks great against the contrasting carbon fiber and black aero piece and wheels. Check out the full set of photos inside.

We’ve seen some major conversions and projects from our 1 series owners and this is one of the best yet. One 1ADDICTS member has taken his E82 120d and converted it into a 1M-bodied car with the S65 V8 engine from the M3!!

In addition to the engine transplant, the car had to have custom bodywork on rear fenders, 1M body panels fitted, M3/1M suspension fitted, exhaust made to fit the new body, and 1M 19″ wheels. The icing on the cake was retrofitting the second generation i-Drive.

Check out its photos and videos inside.

The M Performance Parts party continues. Just minutes after our Live Gallery of the F20 125i equipped with M Performance Parts, BMW has published the full M Performance parts catalog to coincide with its official release/announcement at the 2012 Geneva Motorshow.

M Performance Parts carry the M name because they have been developed together with M engineers for both performance and aesthetics enhancement. This collaboration with M engineers began just last year. This is what sets M Performance Parts apart from what used to be called simply “BMW Performance Parts” (which will be no more going forward).

As of now, M Performance Parts are or will be available for these models:

F10 5-series
F20 1-series
F30 3-serie… CONTINUED

We previously reported on South African tuning shop SAVSPEED’s turbo E92 M3, the first turbo E90/E92 M3 build that we have seen. Watch its dyno run as it sounds like the car wants to take flight :)

SAVSPEED decided on a single turbo setup. As plumbing is difficult in the S65 engine compartment, a custom engine mount had to be designed. SAVSPEED has already run the turbo’d E92 M3 for 140km on the dyno and all is going well. Once they hit 1000 kms on the dyno, they will fit management and injectors and fuel pump.

The objective of this conversion is to achieve 850hp plus. After 2000 kilometres of testing, they will turn up the boost and shoot for 1000 plus horses.… CONTINUED
