Yeah, it would have been nice to show the suspension setup and any brake mods. They'll probably have a write-up of it. Looks pretty cool with the roll cage.

The rear diffuser seems like a waste of money to me for an actual track car.

Awesome!

Probably doesn't need a BBK because of the weight loss with the interior removed. I wonder how much it weighs now.

not only that. but it sounds like the car needs a G-power in it.

I think he scaped his front end when coming back up the ramp in the video.

Ditto. I imagine that it was the only available car at the dealer and had the options already in place. Good news is with Nav he won't get lost on the track.

he probably did, I've been in and out of that driveway and it's rediculous, I have to be careful and I have a stock suspension also they have pot holes the size of vw bugs, they probably do it on purpose, get a new suspension and new wheels destroy them on their potholes, instant road rash all of a sudden you need new wheels again, Great for them bad for you.

PS - Kevin fix those potholes :-)

Description from Turner Motorsports:
E92 M3 Customer Track Build - This customer car was built to order as the owner's weekend track MONSTER. The car is a 2008 E92 M3 Coupe, which originally came with a sunroof (that had to go!) This gallery follows a start-to-finish build up, including stripping of the interior, full cage fabrication, paint, reassembly, safety system installation, full Moton suspension, and much, much more.

Haha, track car with nav... gotta love that. Now if they rigged up some awesome telemetry into that space, that would be cool.

Is it raining on that track?

Why would you custom order a M3 that you were going to track with a sunroof???

^ I don't read it saying that it was custom ordered from BMW, says "built to order" (modified is probably a better word) from Turner. The guy probably bought it off the lot, for all we know, it could have been used...

This looks like a stripped interior m3 with a roll cage. Thats it.
altho. I do have to admit, the work looks great. but not a full blown race car.
