Thumbs up E92 M3 Nürburgring Rental Car - cage build/prep

Well, not quite a rental car

One of our clients loves driving on the Nürburgring. So, after racking up some hefty rental bills for cars that did not belong to him, he did what any true 'ring enthusiast would do: he brought his E92 M3 to us for a full cage and various bits before sending it to Germany to be stored in a garage close to the 'ring The car will retain its radio, power windows, sat nav and dash. Awesome.awesome.awesome.

Basic specs:
6 point cage
x bars
tig welded

This basic cage is more that sufficient for his needs.


Stock car arrives.







Dissassembly is complete.




















He opted for a clean satin black finish. I think it works well







More to come...
