BMW GTS cage is a really nice piece that bolts-on to the supplied brakets.

Here is what our GTS cage looks like. We are getting car ready to get it all installed next week



Lookin good

That steering wheel/interior looks pretty sick. I hope the alcantara holds up better than the e46 ZHP interior does though. Great for grip.

Roll Cage

I have been wanting to do the same to my 2011 w/ competition package. GTS it? I applaud the huge effort to make this a REAL thing. All the details are incredible that you are going to great lengths to match. But, The roll cage your installing looks nothing like the roll cage in the GTS.
Can you actually acquire the OEM 4.4L, if not, maybe the Dinan 4.6L? What the heck slap in 4.4L twin turbo from the 2013 M5.
Anyhow, keep up the GREAT WORK.

The roll cage in the photos you posted was actually not the roll cage that went into production.

The one that Alekshop acquired most definitely is Genuine OE BMW GTSexiness
