Guess it would look awesome!
The CF looks cheap if you ask me.

I like the RDsport blue. Looks perfect with the Alpine White.

Yes I know the feeling!! No I have not yet received the car but that is partically my fault since I have not been back in Cali for months. I know they had gotten the engine going and assembled the car last week. So the car is in brake in period now. The interior still needs some details.

i just read this from start to finish...ok to this post. Looking forward to the finished product and no matter what you have modded this car to your liking which is the most important...I find it funny that people try to push ideas onto others like they were right and you were wrong!

Good work!

OK some more pics, the car is already in brake in period and have gotten many test miles on it. Clearly the front and rear aprons are still not on there but everything is looking good.

looks ridiculously clean and tasteful, save for the stickers. Who makes those wheels and what are the specs?

Wheels are made by RDSports and are 19X8.5 front (weight only 18.3lbs) and 19x11 rear (weigh 19.7 lbs). Very light, very nice, very strong. Made specifically for this application and are matted to Pirelli PZero Corsa 235 front and 305 rear (these are also very light tires, lighter than the stock PS2´s). In order to complete the performance upgrades, these are designed with RDSport springs and thicker, stronger, lighter sway bars.

Why do some things say "Racing Dynamics" and others say "RDsport"? Is "RDsport" a division of "Racing Dynamics"?

Very nice car by the way!

RD Sport is Racing Dynamics in North America. Racing Dynamics name is owned by another company in North America, so if you are looking for the real deal, its RD Sport here.
I believe that is correct.

Sweet ride, congrats!!!!

OK, this may help:

¨Starting in 2003, following a trademark issue with the former U.S. importer, Racing Dynamics S.p.A. began selling its products in the U.S. and Canada (only) under the RDSport brand name. Everywhere else in the world, the company is Racing Dynamics.

Racing Dynamics is the trademark of Racing Dynamics S.p.A., an Italian tuning company specializing in BMW Group motorcars. The company was founded in 1980 in Milan, Italy by Federico Pavoncelli, who is the creative force behind the brand, and his brother Francesco. The distinctive Racing Dynamics logo features a stylized version of the founder's family crest, surrounded by the RACING DYNAMICS wording on an emerald green background.

Racing Dynamics S.p.A. holds the unique distinction of being the sole non-German BMW tuner to have a worldwide market presence. In the early 1990s, Racing Dynamics backed some of the early BMW entries in the 2 liter BTCC, then went on to race its own cars in the Italian and Japanese Super Touring Championships. However, since 1996, the company has focused mainly on passenger cars, as racing proved to be too much of a distraction from its core business.

Racing Dynamics' claims to fame are its engine performance modifications, which are all developed at its own facilities in Milan, Italy. The Company's Italian style is quite pervasive in all of its product designs, which results in cars that stand out for their subtle elegance.

In 2007 Racing Dynamics, supplied its RS56 V-10 motor to Fisker Coachbuild as an option for its own Latigo CS.¨
