It was a JL-motoring BMW E9X M3 VRS Style Carbon Fiber Front Lip. Pretty awesome little piece.

I'm impressed to see your FR-S have such a good lap time...I thought surely a stock M3 would still have a better time but like you said - on a technical course, if the M can't stretch it's legs, then the power differential is somewhat negated.

Id love to run against a e92 m3 @ texas world speedway or another fast track to see how i would do in the FR-S. I ran a 2:04.7 @ TWS CCW. I wonder if a E9X M3 owner can chime in with a time.

Compensating a heavy car with horsepower is like giving an alcoholic cocaine to sober him up...
