Hello All,

I'm Peter, from LA, I would like to share my build journey to the M3 community.
straight forward, my inspiration came from Teamschirmer , a shop in Germany who build track car with a signature BBS E88 as a finish touch. However, my build will be familiar but Team Schirmer is way out of my league. Enjoy

Build #1 (German Godzilla)
Start with 2011 BMW E92 M3 ZCP / DCT / Carbon roof / two tone fox red/blk / 36xxx miles , purchased in 8/2019 , California.

Current the car still in bone stock.
However, I have parts save from my previous e92 M3. Also have parts ordered and more to come.

Enjoy the build, and by the way, I am also an E30 owner

GT4 Carbon Lip (sponsored)
ECS 20mm extended studs
OEM Black chrome grill (sponsored by New Century BMW)
Dinan 32mm Sway bar (local pickup)
Bimmerworld subframe bushing , front mono ball joint , diff bushing.



I have my eyes on:

Thanks for sharing!!
I'll do some study, and return the parts when I receive it.
Probably get Dinan monoball joint instead.

the german auto solutions monoballs would be the best choice as it is the exact same design as dinan but at a much lower price

the turner did not fare well for a couple of people on this forum including me
