GT Wing Help

Leaning strongest towards APR GT250. But I'm not sure if I should get the
61" or the 67" The GTC 300 is intriguing, and I do prefer the look but I've heard they are more draggy.

Voltex is also an option, but it is slightly more $$, and I'm not seeing many (if any) tracked E92's with them. But they do have more wing designs.

Varis is out as the other choices are a greater value.

I have GT4 front aero and canards.

Currently at 3400 pounds with fuel.

I run 285/30-18 R6 F, 295/30-18 R6 R. I may go up 10mm each at some point.

Spring rates are 768 pounds F, 900 pounds R on AST 5200.

Have you considered Brooks Composites? They seem to develop aero for a lot of BMWs.

I saw those too. But I was trying to keep it all under $1700 All in.

But I got a APR GT250 67" ordered this morning. I wonder what the AOA is people are setting these at

I'll try! This is my first foray into aero. So I'm not sure what I'll be able to share.

I think this is a good choice. Nice fit and finish. I would start with 5 degree aoa and adjust from there........hopefully you can go to 0 aoa.

Edit: I see you also have the canards. You will have to see but may need a little angle to balance the front. Good luck.

How would you know if you need more or less aoa?

I have the bimmerworld v1. It is "race" quality with regards to fit and finish. I also tried the APR GTC300 (3D wing) for 6 months. APR has a much better looking product. I am switching back to the v1.

I'd also like to see pics of this once mounted. Do you have pics of your car with the current wheel/tire setup?
