Maybe move the canards higher up? Just behind the reflectors. Also do you plan on running brake ducts with the new lip?

Thanks! That's where I initially wanted to place them, but these were molded to fit specifically in the lower part of the bumper. I tried placing them higher, but the shape wont allow it to be placed anywhere else. I thought about running brake ducts also, but will hold off on doing them for now. The only track where I really need them is COTA, but I don't run there enough to justify doing them right now. Most of the other tracks I run at are not as hard on brakes.

does the gt4 lip seem to hang down more than the oem cf splitters? i want to pull the trigger on a gt4, but i scrape my oem cf splitters a little on a few things and i'm worried it will be even worse with a gt4.

i may be interested in the apr splitter... do you think it is possible to mount and dismount it easily solely for track use? i think i would end up ripping it off if i daily drove it with the apr splitter.

its hard to tell since he has the apr splitter piggy backed below the oem splitters. it looks like it sticks out farther, but its hard to tell if it is actually lower.

The GT4 is very low. On the sides the GT4 splitter sticks out approx. 80 mm further and 30 mm lower than OEM splitters. In the middle it sticks out 100 mm from bumper.

Those stripes are my favorite style for the M3, they're perfect for the white "racing color" and are timeless IMO. Looks much better than the M stripes currently offered by BMW.

Shift knob is a Macht MS97 Spec Shifter Knob. I purchased a UUC EVO3 Short Shift Kit with DSSR, but have not installed as yet.

This is one of my most recent vids.

Yup! No longer a daily driver. I will have to drive next week however, as my truck will have to go back to the body shop to have a panel re-sprayed.

Front shot!

Front shot of Mode Carbon GT4 splitter and canards installed. The canards are more of a matte finish and therefore does not match the glossy finish on the splitter. But other than that I'm very pleased with how it turned out!
