Pics with Challenge Trunk, Lip Prototype, and Other Goodies

The guys over at Challenge and IND have been busy enhancing my car over the past month or so. What started out as a trunk installation, has since evolved into a full-out project.

Over the past couple months, we started by adding the awesome fitting Challenge trunk. The car then spent some time with the pros over at IND for trunk painting, side marker shaving, and grill & gill painting. Next up was a trip for the car out to Bimmerfest, where we debuted a fresh set of BBS FI's from Challenge (Many thanks to IND for arranging safe transport of my baby). Greg over at Challenge also arranged for a prototype of his new lip to be bolted up to my car.

The lip prototype looks to be designed in the spirit of the new GTS-R, but way nicer in execution. It sounds like the lips will be in production very soon, and my order is already in place.

Lastly, I have a set of KW V3's and Brembo's coming in this week, to be installed over at Challenge. I will post up some additional pics in the coming weeks, but here is where I am at so far...

PS. I can't wait for the production version of the front lip...

Lip fitment was exceptional, even for a non-flexing fiberglass prototype. The fit on the CF version should be even better. I know it mounted up to the stock bolt locations.

It was nice to see a new lip that wasn't just another tweaked version of the Vorsteiner lip.

Thanks for letting us work on your amazing M3! The Challenge lip is my all new favorite.

Wait until you guys see the all new E92 Challenge Sport diffuser.
