updated on page one..

It is .120 for the steel and everything is TIG welded. In order this to happen we have to start taking deposits for the cages. Once we reach a certain we can go from there.

nope, both cars are part of the one list. So if everyone puts down a deposit then we get it at the 5-10 price!

Does the E90 design look the same? If it's substantially different, is there a tech drawing of what the E90 one looks like?

8 more? I did not think the 10+ pricing still existed for $1500. You removed it.

Quick question... How easy it is to instal it and remove it. Is it something that could be done between track days?

they asked me to remove it, but you are right if we get 3 more we can get it for the 1650 price. They said that the 1500 price is not possible

will be very similar, the shop will have a E90 they will be mocking up one on. I will have them take pictures and post them.

Also, the purpose of this setup is to have some that is easy to remove and install. Many of us use our cars as DD and most times it would be a pain to have seats and spaced removed.

This is still a good deal for a great cage. I've priced others from trusted race teams and they can't match this price. Jump in and bring in savings!

Would the e92 cage work for just the carbon roof version or will it also be compatible with the sunroof version? The old VS cage would only fit carbon roof E92.

I don't see why there would be a difference, but I will have them test it on a sunroof car. Should not be a problem

if anything they would have to shorten it a few, should not be a problem.

mkpoto -

so if it reaches 5 is it still 200 more for e90?

also - since you're not a vendor/sponsor and just a hobbyist doing this for fun would you disclose to us if you're profiting from this? And if so, how much? Not expecting you to do anything for free - we appreciate you pulling this together but since you're a fellow enthusiast it's not inappropriate for you to disclose details like this.

What if any modification to the car is needed for the installation. For both e90/92.

200 will still be added to the total because extra material will be needed to make the cage work for the sedan.
I will not be profiting from this, I was planning on getting this made for my car and when I spoke with the shop who made them, he mentioned he was thinking about setting up a group buy, so I thought might as well get it done so I don't have to pay the 25xx price tag.

Also, the only modification needed would be to drill holes for the main hoop and remove all your seats in the rear
