BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Hello everybody,

We had a customer come to us wanting vinyl work, Performance Steering Wheel, CSL trunk, Recaro seat and harnesses. However since a harness bar doesn't really work in a convertible we made a custom bolt-in cage for his car, and here are the results!






















Exterior:
- Duke Dynamics CSL Trunk- FRP
- AutoTecknic Matte Black Fender Grills
- BMW Performance Carbon Splitters
- Carrozzeria vinyl wrap service
- Custom Painted Gloss Black Wheels
- Macht Schnell Tow Hook Strap- Red

Interior:
- Carrozzeria Custom Roll Cages- Red
- Recaro Pole Position
- Recaro Floor and Side Mounts
- BMW Performance Version I with Blue Strip Steering Wheel
- AutoTecknic Extension Paddle Shifters
- JL_Motoring Type I Style Diffuser

Lights:
- AutoTecknic H8 Angel Eyes
- AutoTecknic LED Fender Lights
- Carrozzeria Door M Lights

Exhaust:
- Meist SUS - GT (Racing Performance) + Titanium Tips + Aero Shield (Single)

Upcoming:

Thank you

You can say that again. This concept always gives me a chuckle.

Awesome...

Love it the interior and cage look awesome! it's a bolt in though right?

any pics of the mounting points and the floor? I wanna see what you removed/changed to bolt it all in! looks very discreet though since it kept the rear main seat portion.

most likely newbs to racing will thing cages in a convertible look funny.
or..... fanboi's because they have the close minded analogy that bmw fanbois have that vert isnt m3 etc..roof line is weird bs....blah blah..

I have been wanting to do a recaro in my vert also and was too scared due to the roll over protection, but the cage actually looks much better than I thought.I would probabbly do a matte color on mine though.

but seriously...all those mods for racing and on stock wheels and tires?


any pictures from a normal distance... that are not super super zoomed in so we can see the whole car with the top down as if we were standing a few yards away from it with a horizonal picture?

wow so i assume the top can close with the rollbar in or does the owner have to unbolt it.
it sucks for E93 owners how you basically need a harness since the seatbelts are built into the seats

These photos are crap. How about a nice three-quarter shot from about 12 feet away with the top down?

When working at Ultrasmith in Manhattan we used to fabricate removable roll bars in a lot if Ferrari F355 Spiders since they were required to bring them on the track.

Is that a CF gas tank by any chance? Hard to make out the bow shaped object underneath.

Surprised he didn't remove the rear seats for weight savings since they are useless now.

Just my opinion: that car looks hideous. The stickers on the steering wheel, the wavy flat paint, the wavy rear lip that's installed crooked (warped) over the left exhaust tip. The muffler pressed up against the body.

Went from a classy looking car that looked $75,000+ to a used car lot gangster special with bondo'd looking body work (I know it's just the crappy flat paint job that's making the sheet metal look like it's been smashed up by a Ford Expedition then repaired in Tijuana for $200) I'm sure the sheet metal is just fine.

And look at the driver door in the far away shot how it was wiped down by goons w/ a rag. Careless wipe down job. Like the way it was modded.
