Not to alarm anyone, but there is a guy with no head working on the car! Double check all the bolts and nuts.

We thought about that but decided custom gull wing doors would be nicer and cleaner. Just kidding, it went into paint for the interior. Looks like the cage will be interlagos blue, paneling will be matte black, and the rest of the interior alpine white.

Finally, a good reason to buy your wife a torque wrench for Christmas!

Thanks! We have been writing letters to get some additional parts added to our car to make it more competitive (we have to keep up with the 5.0 mustang, they were flying last year). Hopefully the mods get approved for this year. Brakes, springs, sway bars, and less weight.

If you weren't restricted to 3700 pounds with driver I wonder what the E92 can get to track stripped.

The guys at APR tuning stripped an S4 down to just under 3000 pounds and it originally weighs in at a hefty 3925!

M3 GT2 is about 2750 lbs IIRC.

You've missed it - they've had several parts already listed in the FS forum...
