Thumbs Up Vote for Ian - Performance BMW Magazine Car of the Year!

Not a lot of people are lucky to make the front cover of a magazine in a span of a project. So landing one is a blessing and could possibly be the greatest accomplishment one can achieve. After spending the time, effort, and money in making a machine be worthy of a front cover, some recognition would just make it all worth while.

Well, Ian Clements was one of those few people who was able to make it on the front cover of Performance BMW Magazine. But it seems like it doesnt stop there. He has been nominated to be Performance BMWs Car of the Year 2012. But hes going to need some help from us from the people who have made his project even possible. So we ask you to do your part! If you can take the time to visit the following link below and vote for Ians Car to be the 2012 Car Of The Year, I bet hell definitely appreciate it. Support your fellow HPF BMW M3 owner! Thank You

And Ian we at HPF wish you the best of luck.

That's the car that beat me out for the cover? Are you fn kidding me? I bet I'd take it easy in a cross country race going the speed limit the whole way!

Few have gotten more performance out of their cars than me. Some, but not many! I've been robbed again.

Drop is too aggressive to be useful. not digging the wheels, hood, black roof,emblems, what looks like red badging on the side vents, or grills. otherwise seems ok? i'm sure the inside looks ok? any pics of it?

I just have the one. My car is the one that drove to NYC from NJ in about 20 mins. I'm surprised you hadn't heard about it before, but I guess you don't hang in the General forum much. Under the hood, all I can say is that my engine has put out more power than all but a few here. You wouldn't want to race me, quite honestly; there'd be no point, and you'd feel like an idiot after trying, unless, of course, you take racing light-heartedly like me.

If you recall having read about green tires, that's me...just one of the three here that's painted them.

Ian, Mango is our purist. He's very modest in his styling tastes, thinking that when you 'cry out' look at me with styling cues, that it takes away from the car as a whole. I sort of agree. When I see a car with painted calipers, a dot of color here or there, my eye goes to those spots...as the designer intended. But, the 'add on' designer, like hpf, when they add a drop of red to say hpf, it's almost to me like keeping on a license plate frame from the dealer...kind of tacky. Nothing personal.

I know hpf put a lot into your car, but the style of it is 95% bmw (with some tweaking). I agree with Mango that understated makes for a more beautiful car. Same as with women...I prefer pumps, T-shirt, and khakis, to one all done up with 6" stilettos.

Oh, also, Mango wants to do what Merc does too...they're both really jealous!
