No problem with transporting a car that is slung the car by the wheels like that. You don't need to yank the thing down and compress the suspension either the slings just keep it from moving left, right, forward and reverse.

When I had my Euro E36 shipped from Toronto to Edmonton the Shipping company strapped my car exactly like that........ They are the only shipping company that moves Ferarri's in Canada and I am sure they secure them that way too....... they have etrack on the side walls of their enclosed trailers that they secure the cars to so they use the wheels like that so that they can load various sizes of vehicles into the trailers. The name of the company is TFX international if you are interested in looking them up http://www.tfxinternational.com.

Car looks bad ass though. Interested to see what you do with it.
You know honestly your not the first to say that but I have said it before and I will say it again, I can go out and buy the 'super car' $150K+ but I don't want to. You can't go and your cant buy my M3 and you will not see another one like it, to me that's my super car.
I really respect that.

It's not just about the end product but also the process. I really enjoy following all of your builds and the excitement and enthusiasm generated from the build would never be replicated by simply purchasing any car off the shelf. Your cars have all been very unique and all expressions of your taste. Keep it up.
