Some pics from this past Monday. The splitter is only test fitted at this point. Will be building something more permanent.

Looks great!

One thing I noticed in the video...looks like you are missing out on the last 1500 RPM of the power band (the best part!). It looks (and sounds) like you shift at around 7K or before...any reason for that?

Never been on the track like that. When you're coming up to another racer in front and about to overtake them, I assume the left arm out the window signaling means he/she is giving you the go to pass?

Was weight saving a part of this race program?

I would take an m3 with a v8 anyday.

People underestimate what impact sound has on driving pleasure and face it, 99 percent of buyers buy it for day to day pleasure, not a race track. With that in mind, why that is never mentioned or hardly mentioned in talks about why turbos will really eviscerate the m3 on some level is beyond me!
+1. Because everyone is all about the light to light action, its all they know. I so often hear immature M3 owners bitch and whine how the e92 gets owned by the competition in the straightline..and how the AMG boys rule the streets blah blah. Id love to see a c63 AMG run at the track like an E9x M3.

Well enough bitching made BMW listen, that and the push by the guidelines being set worldwide for better fuel economy. So with that being said the M3 gets the twin snails, and the end of a short and glorious NA V8 era comes to an end.

I so regret getting a new F30 335i with the bells and whistles, and not opting to find a CPO E92 M3....Ill correct that mistake shortly here

Get your NA V8's while you can boys n gals. I agree the new f30 M3/4 will be awesome and a tuners dream. But we'll all be here starting threads discussing how E9x's are whizzing by on the track while the f30/32 is boiling its d**k and pulled over after 3 laps on a 91* day...

I do welcome the new F series M3, Im sure it will be a wonderful machine...but for god sakes I still cant agree on them calling the coupe the M4...ehhhh

And it's a 6MT. Even cooler. Beautiful build, and that sound is music to my ears.

I don't track my car but based on what I'm getting on the street I would suggest two Dinan additions: Rear racing toe link and front control arm mono-balls. Don't think they conflict with anything you have done and they take a lot of "mush" out of the car.
