Not that much noticable, but I wish I knew about that...

Be careful to remove all excess of this Fluid Film!
Thanks for the word of caution!

With all the mechanical bits installed. Time for the front splitter and spoiler.

I loved the Varis wing since I first saw it on Martin Ds car. I had to have it for this build. Its one of the larger wings that I think compliments the M3s lines better than most. I know big wings are not for everyone and I will concede that the wing is probably as much for looks (for me) as it is for functionality. I just love it. I combined the wing with a Challenge CF trunk which apparently is a first for the wing and made the installation difficult. I left the wing installation and painting to the professionals at West Coast Specialties in San Diego. Here is the outcome.

Spoiler2 by JMEllis, on Flickr

I wanted something functional that worked. However, paying the premium for the OE BMW Motorsport part that would eventually get cracked or destroyed did not appear logical. So, I went with the next best thing.... The RKP GT4 front lip.

Here is the lip receiving a clear bra.


Front Lip Bra by JMEllis, on Flickr

I wanted a lip that would be held securely by bolts, not tape or glue. I wanted something that would resist the high speeds that come with track duty. I further secured the bolts in place using high strength loctite. Yes, getting the lip will be difficult but its not coming off unless its destroyed anyway.


Splitter0 by JMEllis, on Flickr

Interesting to note that BMW does not completely spray the bottom of the bumpers. You can just make out the raw PU underneath.

Bolts going on.


Splitter4 by JMEllis, on Flickr

And the finished look!


Splitter3 by JMEllis, on Flickr

Yes, its difficult to drive with this big lip. But careful driving and road planning has kept it looking nearly new.


Splitter1 by JMEllis, on Flickr

Time for the mirrors. This is actually pretty simple as long as you are not squeamish about pulling out interior panels. The mirror install will require removal of the door panel. However, you do not need to disconnect all the electrical bits. Just pull the panel off and set it on something (I used a cooler) in order to access the tweeter and mirror mounts.

Here are the mirrors going on.


Mirror2 by JMEllis, on Flickr

The mirrors and Puma logo are a homage to the BMW Motorsport RLL M3 GTs that until recently raced in ALMS.

It could have been a gamble with SignalG-but you did it right. Congratulations on a dream realized and no doubt your choice to DIY rewarded on many levels.

Great meeting you at the MFest meet on Saturday!
Hey Jason,

Someone just brought this post to my attention.

I'm glad to read you're happy with SD wheel and tire.

The strange thing however is that I was never at any Mfest meet. And we never met. I actually never go to meets as I spend my weekends either working or at the track.

Now I'm really curious to know who you met. Why would anyone say they are me (if that's what happened)... either way very strange.

I swear the dude I talked to said he posted as kaiv on M3post but I could have heard him wrong or made a wrong assumption in either case thanks for the recommendation!

I had been looking for a suitable replacement shift knob for a while. My search took me to TWM Performance and their unique approach to a solution for BMWs. They provide a threaded adapter for the BMW shift lever that is secured with three set screws. Then the shift knob can be torqued down onto the threads of the adapter. The result is a very secure knob. I chose TWMs competition series knob and I am very happy with the product.

The packaging

The packaging inside is very nice. The threaded adapter is on the left
