Very cool build . I am dying with envy . Subscribed, looking forward to following your progress.

Many thanks for taking the time to post and share all this.

Definitely a more interesting read than all the "I crashed my M3", "Women drive poorly" and "Women are safer than men" threads posted recently...

Here's a photo from a little later as it progressed

I don't think there are many E90 M3 racecars. This is quite exciting. Thanks for keeping the updates coming!

I'll have to get that from Ralph. Not a known vendor. More like a local guy that does them one at at time.

Sorry for being slow on updates and answers. We are spending almost every waking minute trying to make the St. Patrick's Day weekend races at Chuckwalla.

Here is Scott putting on Clear bra and yellow headlight film

The big problem when it comes back from the cage and then paint shops is that the wiring needs to be put back in the car.

Thanks Scott. Actually talked to Ralph and got a wing coming. The wiring sure is a pain. We had the same thing with our E92 M3 WC build. Don't forget or lose any modules. What tune are you going to run?

Here is a short video of the car back up and running after the cage installation.

Every generation of BMW car build seems gets tougher and tougher with the wiring. This car seems to have sensors or modules everywhere!



The tips to the Akrapovic exhaust will be added later.

Thanks to everyone who's helped so far!

Great build project. Glad to see an E90. Are you using brake cooling ducts or do you think you will not need them with the Stoptechs?
Hope all goes well next weekend at Chuckwalla.
Thanks,
John

Brakes performed well, even without brake ducts yet. Here is the finished product as it made it's debut at Chuckwalla
