Jlevi SW | Vorsteiner E92 M3: A Preview of What's to Come

As a master distributor for Vorsteiner Aerodynamic, Performance and Wheel components, Jlevi SW has early access to the upcoming pipeline of E92 M3 upgrades.

We thought as forum sponsors, we would tease you with a preview of what's to come. As of right now, there are no official time frames for completion but these are being worked on by Vorsteiner designers and are in various stages of development.

Vorsteiner E92 M3 Future Product Lineup

-Full Carbon Front Bumper with removable CF Splitters
-Front Add-On Spoiler to OEM Bumper
-Vented Carbon Kevlar Bonnet
-Carbon Fiber Boot Lid
-Carbon Fiber Add-On Boot Spoiler
-Carbon Fiber Rear Diffuser with Aero Fins
-Carbon Roof Spoiler
-Forged 1 Piece, 2 piece & 3 piece wheels
-Full Titanium Exhaust System with X Pipe
-Titanium Strut Brace


About Vorsteiner and their technology
Vorsteiner's brand foundation is rooted on key technological advancements in the automotive industry. This is why their core focus is to develop true lightweight components through the use of our proprietary vacuum technology manufacturing.The lighter the car the more power and handling feedback is sent back to the
driver. As a result of replacement of steel and aluminum body panels, the power to weight ratio of Vorsteiner tuned vehicles is fully maximized.
Vacuumed polymer plastics (DVWP) and high temperature vacuumed carbon fiber reinforcement plastic (CFRP) are commonly used in advanced military aerospace but also throughout our product line.




Key Benefits and Highlights of Vorsteiner Carbon Fiber Technology
-Maximizes Power to Weight Ratio
-Decreases vehicle fuel usage
-Resistance to Rust & Corrosion in harsh environments
-Exhibits extremely long life even under extreme conditions
-Low Percentage of resin content ratio increases strength & weight compared to wetlay up production
-Vacuum compression of carbon fiber parts exhibits more visually stunning looks and uniformity
-Up to 60% lighter than factory replacement parts

E92 M3 Bootlid
Vorsteiner has already released the CF E92 M3 Bootlid which is available for ordering and first units already shipping.

We can special order CF in 1x1 weave to ensure that it is an exact match to the OEM pattern.

got any photos of the boot lid on the vehicle?

I am concerned that the boot lid displayed isnt fluid with the body lines expecally the extention part. dosent look like the curve from the quarter panel would make a nice round out on the duckbill of the boot lid. I could be wrong. Just interested.

boot lid will be awesome...lets hope the CSL will have similar looks! (from the spy pics looks to be true) Otherwise we will have a lot of E92 M3's trying to look like E46 CSL's....

Seems like that should be standard procedure for parts going on cars that already have the CFRP roof.

What's the weight savings on the trunk lid? 6 lb or so?

Here are some shots of the bootlid for you guys. The weight savings depends on the material you go with- I will get the exact measurements for you guys this week.

Nice fit--afraid it may have too much of a police car look along with the black roof on white, though.

On the E46 M3 the weight savings was about 15-20lbs.

You can also just paint a portion of it...here is a member on E90post who did just that:

Note: This picture was taken before the bootlid was properly fitted and closed.

Just curious, what is the difference between the M3 bootlid and the E92 one on your site here?

http://jlevistreetwerks.com/p1019/Vo...88bf8036b3bc4f

The pics look the same...

Cant i just buy that bootlid and slap it on the m3?

This bootlid was originally designed to flow both aerodynamically and stylistically with the Vorsteiner M3 parts but it works perfectly on the E92 non-M as well

M3 bootlid is fully compatible with the E92 Non-M.
