I have always been a big fan of your car, dating back to Mfest IV back in 2010. Glad to hear you still have it.

Thanks for an awesome job of getting my track set up dialed in Malek. Hard to find someone who is as much a perfectionist as me.

Have my performance spoiler mounted now, and some custom BBS FI's for the street are on their way

An upgrade to suspension will bring me back once again for the best alignment around!

Kyle,

Thank you for the kind words. Hope all is well and to see that M3 again soon! In the meantime, continue having fun with that thing.

Here is a full shot from this past weekend on the way to Targa Trophy.

As mentioned before, there is A LOT going on with the M3, and it is all starting this week. The goals are large, but attainable with engineering.

Details will all be released of course when completed.

Malek - absolutely gorgeous. I love the new wheels and splitter!

Amazing photo. Lip looks sick. I'd be too scared to break that thing off on my car, given the low ride height and it being my DD.

It's not a problem, the aluminum plate is bolted to the frame and already takes a serious beating without an issue.

MFEST VIII bound. Come see this car at Bimmerfest 2014 at the Pasadena Rose Bowl at the IND Distribution booth sporting RKP Germany parts and a full bespoke in-house designed & built suspension system. The fastest naturally aspirated Road going E9x M3 built to date.

I saw the skid plate the guy did on the green M3 but his looked like it was just riveted to the splitter. Is yours attached to the frame like the OEM GTS splitter? That would make more sense why it would be able to take a beating of any kind and still look decent. That skid plate idea was brilliant

I'd like to see photos of the under pinnings...e.g. skid plate. Thanks in advance.

Yes, the GT4 splitter and plate are attached to the car via the frame with breakaway mounts and magnesium hardware. On the Melbourne red car, a thicker grade aluminum was used to utilize chassis mounting. The splitter on the bottom also uses aerodynamic "winglets" to diverge air where I need it to go and to "clean" up the air flow on the bottom of the front end.

JEllis' skid plate is fully functional. His riveted version will still do the job at saving that GT4 lip. In fact, I prefer that he riveted the skid plate on as it offers protection for the lip. If he used fasteners, he would have a greater chance of destroying the GT4 because if the metal plate catches which its not frame mounted, it will split the lip open. He did a great job at making his and looks great.
