Mario Kassamani wasn't originally looking for the E90 M3, but when a friend of his mentioned that he was selling his 2011 BMW M3 he couldn't resist. Within one week of owning the car, the modifications began. Kassamani's goal was to build a head-turning show car that could also hit the circuit and show off its functionality. It looks like he succeeded!

FAVORITE MODIFICATION:
"There are many special parts on my car, but one of my favorites has to be the genuine BMW Motorsport mirrors from the M3 DTM race car. These mirrors were sourced from BMW Motorsport Germany and had custom mounting brackets fabricated when they arrived in the US. It's just one of those super unique pieces that you won't see with anyone else."
