Beautiful piece. Very strong and a perfect fit. And IMO, it functions just as good as it looks.
I've done a fair amount of races/track days with my E92 since completing the build in August and I'm extremely happy with the high speed balance of the car with the BW front splitter coupled with a BW rear wing.
I have the version with the brake ducts molded into the piece which works very well.

Are you running the V2 carbon wing or GT wing?

I'm running the new GT wing. From what I understand, the foil profile on the new GT wing is the same as on the BW V2 wing, so they produce roughly the same amount of downforce.
The GT wing is a higher quality carbon piece though. The construction of the foil is better/stronger. The way the wing attaches to the uprights is improved. The uprights are also lighter, stiffer, and more aerodynamic. The new end plate design cuts down on drag. And the removable/changeable slide-in wicker is pretty sweet.
In short, it performs pretty darn good, and is dead sexy to look at.

I have the V2 wing and the carbon splitter with air ducts in my garage but have not put it on yet. The V2 isn't as light as I want it to be, but is a nice piece. The uprights are heavy!

How do you like your splitter with the ducts? Do you notice better brake performance with the increased airflow?

Those dive-planes/whiskers/canards look really cool, but work even better.

Might be time to switch up my Arkym to the BW splitter. My Arkym has seen a great deal of beating over past 2 years at spring mountain..
