Thumbs up M3 GT4 (BMW Motorsport) parts now for sale via select U.S. Dealers

As reported on Homepage.

Quote:
Now, for the first time ever in the United States, you can purchase authentic BMW Motorsport parts to offer true BMW performance, available at select BMW centers. It's the only way to push your track-approved BMW model to its limits.
Yes, it includes Akra exhaust, AP brakes, Sachs (F)/Ohlins (R) dampers, BBS wheels, and many more...

Now I really have to build a M3 race car

I applaud BMW for increasing their support for grassroots motorsports in the U.S.

I was wondering how they planned on getting around the powersteering failures. The car obviously should have come with it.

Nice--brake ducting finally and steering cooling...plus other goodies. I wish they had prices listed, but then again if they were posted I probably wouldn't be able to type this due to having fallen out of my chair.

The rims are not forged. They are made the same way the BBS CH-R wheels are made which are cast.

Definitely just called a few local dealers and none of them have any idea what I'm talking about, so doesn't look like anyone around here can get these.

FYI: Just spoke with Kevin from Laurel BMW. I was inquiring about the exhaust and was told that it is not an akra exhaust but instead a BMW Motorsports exhaust. He didn't give me a manufacturer just said it is made by BMW. It is a full system and costs $8,000, also upon purchasing anything from here you have to sign a waiver of all warranty on your vehicle.

I spoke with some of BMW at the Geneva Show, and they told me there will be no BMW Performance Exhaust, but a BMW Performance Carbon Air Intake.

BMW does not name the supplier of their parts. It has been well established that the GT4 exhaust is made by Akrapovic.
