Jesal@ind or Tom@EAS that would be a great place to start.

Im sure a lot of aftermarket vendors on the forum can get these for you?

You of coarse can do what you want, but thats a Wide Body race car only wing, it would be silly on any Normal M3.

Just get the one from the GTS. Might as well get the crazy M3 DTM wing. It'll look just as out of place on a street M3 as the one you posted from the GT2.

That wing will definitely help with down force when going 100mph+. Around town, ya, you'll look like a tool bag.

Is wing that tall really necessary for normal driving speed? I don't see a point to it unless you're going "really, really fast"

This looks sick! Is there a wing where the mounts are in the center?

Unless you like the looks which is reason enough to get it because it's your car, a wing that is in clean air above the hood and roof line would only give you a performance benefit on higher speed corners and sweepers on a track. On straights and highways all it would do is create drag and worsen your mileage and acceleration.

You can't use logic here. But I found your response to be sound.

OP - Why not get a wing with a removable center section? This way you can just rock the mounts around town. Could be pretty sweet.

The apr wing is removable (wing stands unscrew from the bottom of trunk).

I've been rocking mine around town but gets a lot of looks. I track my car often and would never get one otherwise. Unless you are an experience track driver I wouldn't get one either.

This. Get the APR wing. Looks amazing. IMO better than the GT2 wing aesthetically.
