BMW M Performance Styling

Hey, new to the forum so "Hi"

After spenidng 4 days at the Nurburgring at the weekend it became clear that my e92 M3 Edition is lacking carbon......

After speaking with a few guys there they told me to buy the front splitters and spolier from BMW direct.

Is this right???

It was my 1st time round the ring and absolutely loved it!!!! Cant wait to go back! I managed a 9.46 on my 4th and final lap and was well happy about it.

Cheers for the styling feedback everyone :-)

Dave

use the money saved on carbon fiber parts and book a return visit to the ring but this time do a private day with some coaching.

Meet me at the 'Ring in October and I will coach you for the price of bottled water, lunch, and a beer at the end of the day. I can be there on October 19, 20, or 21. I have a BMW event on the 24 and 25 and there is one also on the 22 and 23 so tourist laps will be limited on those days. Should have little problem knocking a minute off your lap.

Ive had to send a complaint to BMW UK...... The prices my local dealer quoted me were so unreasonable I went o a few other dealers. The others came in 400 cheaper than my dealer.

Im waiting for a reply to see what they say :-/

9' dead is easy. You can do 8'30"-something I'm sure. I can do a lap in that range fairly routinely, note that these times are bridge-to-gantry.
