The weight is great and value is much better than others. However fit needed some love. Not a ton but a body shop is a big help. To get the oem mirrors took a good amount of work to get to fit.

I would go with the Bimmerworld doors of was to repurchase. The BW doors came on market the day my doors arrived from the UK.

Unfortunately haven't run the new wing as it is not ready yet. The wing element is built but new supports are held up at powder coater.

Love following your progress!
Any tips on gutting the OEM mirrors? i got a set of e36 M3 and saw your comment on their visibility...
If i can gut mine- with your tips I'm putting them on the BW CF doors that just arrived. Stock oem mirrors way too heavy.
thanks in advance.

Are you guys building towards any particular series specifications or just trying to get rid of as much weight as you can?

warp10 - looking forward to seeing the new wing setup. I'm sourcing parts for a major phase of my build over the summer with aero included - trying to figure out which wing to go with.

My body guy did it. But you can see all the components. Only thing he left was the adjustment parts. No motor or wiring.

Little lighting project.

I participate in 2-3 night driving events at year. Road Atlanta, Sebring, and Charlotte Motorspeed Way. Oem headlight are weak at full speed. These should help. 2 spots and 1 flood (apex light)

Don't remember exact specs but I think it was like a combined 12000+ Lumens!

Will post final product

I have my OEM cover we are gonna use.

I sold all the guts of my OEM lights. So this is using the OEM housing that has been cut up to fit lights. Using a cartek light pen to control.

warp10, i figured i'd ask you since you have quite a bit done to your front end... is the front bumper impact rail bolted to the frame with the three M12 nuts per side like the rear? i haven't had any luck finding a satisfactory pic online.

It was fine and made power. Just not for me anymore with how I'm using the car.
