Guys I need your opinion

Let me introduce myself since I'm new to the forums. My name is Viga I was born in Lithuania and I know reside in the Chicago area. I have a rally car racing background and also I have been designing and fabricating aero dynamic parts for over 30 years. My current occupation is client adviser at Laurel BMW in Westmont.

I favor designs from Vorsteiner and Ericsson but feel that they are too soft for the M3 and far to duplicated. Perhaps this has mainly to do with the fact that I favor Le Mans and DTM Racing style designs and aerodynamics. And this is the type of style and design I want to bring to the street.

This is why I have modified the ADR wing (SEE BELOW) to follow the natural M3 lines. In addition to that I have also added the roof spoiler which I have designed from scratch and engineered. I have also produced brake caliper covers which complete the unfinished BMW design. This is a far less costly solution then replacing the stock calipers with aftermarket ones such as BREMBO Stoptech, etc.....

I am currently working a new design for the front splitters and a completely new and unique rear diffuser. If anyone has interest and would like to purchase any of the existing items feel free to PM me.

not feeling the wing or caliper coveres makes the car look cheap. IMO

Welcome to the forums!

I have seen your other cars around, you had a 335i before this also correct? I believe you are friends with BEBE also.

I actually like the roof spoiler, but everything else isn't my cup of tea. Welcome though and good luck with everything. I may look into your roof spoiler when my car comes.

+1...and the CF overlays on the mirrors as well it didn't cover all the red. All of this may look nice if the quality was improved

Just improving the photo quality will help a lot. Don't take photos at noon time with the sun blazing down on your car. I dunno, call it a guilty pleasure, kinda like listening to that song that you would never be caught listening to except when alone, but I like that style wing. I'm not saying it looks good on an M3, but on a race car... Maybe if it was more subtle, a lot more subtle.

I feel that with all that money spent on the "useless" or ugly-ish items, you could of spent on some quality parts. It looks like you like to spend money to enhance the look...or performance?...of your car, so why not talk to some of the advertisers on here. You can certainly get some nice stuff, but please, PLEASE, take off that roof spoiler, the carbon fiber stickers (or get them done professionally), and the caliper covers...and youl have yourself a nice looking car again.

so yea the vinyl overlay on the hood is scratched up and needs to go, the fake cf mirror covers gotta go, the roof spoiler is alright and the trunk spoiler is REAL cf but it has to go, i say, start the project over without looking fake. its not an honda or a nissan, its a bmw m3. sorry for being brutally honest but thats just how i feel. ohh and get new wheels.
