Seeing how this GB is almost finished, do you have any idea when the GT4 wing GB will be starting?

There's a backlog. I think I'm second on that list. Go ahead and sign up (pg1 of thread) and as people fall off the list, we will get moved up.

I swapped spots with M3_Godzilla who got the first batch.

1. Yes my bumper is OEM
2. It is not a placement issue.. You can ask the 20 holes and 5 hours in my bumper with different angles an trying to force this to fit

Anyways... story time

Bracket holes were a complete miss. It looks like Stevie wonder drilled these holes.. my thought is that it would be better to have it not come pre-drilled. You can see here that with the oe bolt in place, the pre-drilled holes in the bracket do not line up at all.


Ok before I start drilling anything.. I should check to see at least with 1 bolt in the brackets, if the splitter mount will line up right? Sure enough, also needs to be notched

You can see how far off the existing bracket holes are here after I drilled holes in bracket and riveted in. (used CSL DNA pics for reference to confirm my mounting angle etc)


Be careful not to overtighten your bolts.. it is fragile.. I messed up on this one and it cracked but it's still holding :-)

you need to cut the bumper to fit the brackets

alright sweet.. hard part is done right? NOPE

the lip I received is not the same shape as the bumper and I could not get it to fit no matter what angle or position I tried (trust me, I spent 5 hours just on this thinking maybe I was just stupid)

after all that time this is the best fitment I could come up with. To be fair these are pics before I fully tightened it down.. although it is not much better. Both the mounting edges sit flush with the rear of the bumper as stated in previous posts to do.


Luckily it doesn't look too bad on my car because it is black.. and I will fill the gap from the rear with black silicon so no light comes through.. but for $1000, . Not sure if I got a bad mold or what. Might have to chance the carbon one listed on ebay and pray it's better. Not a great pic but I'm still working on other things on the car and will grab more pics when I can

I am only here to share my experience. Hope your experience is better than mine . Had higher expectations for german import.. this has fit worse than my ebay lips

Also.. please do not go wasting your money on $3.50/each bolts from BMW (or $7/each if you hit up dealer directly)

The oem gts sizes are M6x14 and M6x18. Most stores don't have this, so you can get (4) M6x16 (mount chassis bracket to splitter bracket) and (6) M6x20. You can use flange bolts with washers or whatever you want (just make sure you have washers). I recommend grade 8 washers on the 6 M6x20 since these ones bolt the splitter to the chassis mount.

And for the lip to bumper - of course I recommend using a locking nylon nut. you can use m6 as well but I opted to use M8 bolts and drilled the hole slightly bigger and used a fat washer.
Any update on this? For $1K this is horrific fitment/quality.

Hey guys,

There are some delays due to covid in Germany. 360C had a positive case again and are working from home.

Markus is looking to have both batches shipped next week, the 4th batch is ready. 5th batch is at paint stage - but that is on hold this week due to covid. They are resuming work next week and both batches should all be sent out.

Anyone install the 1 piece yet? Are the factory holes in the nose facia used or do you have to drill new holes in the bottom of the nose for install?

I'm not completely sure what you mean by nose facia but you definitely have to drill holes in the bottom of the bumper to install the 1 piece.

all holes must be drilled. You can see it when you line it up.

You're currently 6th on backlog. We'll be moving on to new batches this week as the current are finally shipped out due to covid lockdown delays.

It'll become clearer as we move along the batches, and hopefully I might get Markus to open up a last batch!
