Amazing pics karan
would love to see more pics of M3 in hills,and if possible a small write up as to how did she behave.
Btw was GC a problem, did u scrape its belly anywhere uphills?.

And somehow i feel ur signature is incomplete without an upcoming purchase.
coming soon?

We clicked a few more pictures , which I'll run through the HDR program and post as and when available . The M behaved wonderfully in the hills. It is built for such twisty roads and it took them with ease. I did however feel a loss of power , in terms of instantaneous acceleration , at higher altitude .
GC was no problem , even with my lowering springs . The under - carriage scraped a little at even roads , but the lip and side skirts were just fine . The pot-holes did mess up the alignment , so I will need that re-adjusted , along side my exhaust .

Oops! Did I forget to mention that my Eisenmann Race exhaust will be installed on Monday?


EDIT - I will post an upcoming collection to our stable by the end of the year , but the space restriction for the signature leaves more to be desired . Hope the mods are listening .

Karan any reason you think of as to why did you experience this?
till where did you go?
these roads are neither high,or too steep for a V8 to experience powerloss

I went all the way to Kasauli top . I guess the higher altitude and thin air resulted in a minor loss of power.

Awesome Pics Karan.
All the pics are great especially the 2nd one. They sure have amazing clarity with minute details.
The m3 looks stonker in the greens.
Still on temporary no? Waiting for something great again

I am not sure about actual figures but altitude is ~7000Ft or less but not more than this.
So you shouldnt have experienced powerloss,anyways you can check that whenever you head to the hills next

Might be because of the steep climb ? though relatively it is not too steep . but i dont think A/F mixture should get messed up and the V8 should have powerloss under such conditions . Did you put the pedal to the metal on the corners ? i find that road very enticing when riding my bike and i know each and every corner by heart (litrelly) .

And about the signature you could just remove the manufacturer names

7,000 feet is high enough for a normally aspirated engine to lose a fair bit of power due to the lower air pressure and reduced O2.
