Hi!

Unfortunately things are a bit slow for me right now, mostly due to weather conditions now during winter. Focus has been on tuning the audio to prep for the coming competition season which kicks of around easter, so not too far away

Decision point right now for me is whether to prioritise a new set of wheels (20's) or MP front lip + trunk spoiler. Finances won't allow for all of it in one go.

I'd get the MP Brakes with yellow calipers instead of the 20 inch wheels
Can you post a picture with your winter setup?
A clip with your new sound system?
All the best to you!

The 420 doesn't really require a lot of stopping power

I'll see about doing a clip on the audio install some day, just need to get some better weather and some time

Cheers.

Incredible build, not at all what I was expecting finished product to look like. Very clean all around.

After a way too long winter, finally got my summer wheels fitted again today. The M-Performance CF rear spoiler who's been laying around will be fitted over the weekend if weather permits - pics may follow

First competition of the season is just around corner - Elmia Custom Motor Show in Jönköping, Sweden - April 16th!

Finally got the M-Performance rear spoiler mounted

Washed the car yesterday, used Adams Strip Wash on the trunk lid to remove any sealant and wax. Today when mounting the spoiler, rubbed it down with alcohol. I used the Betalink K1 glue and temporarily fixed the spoiler with tape:


Very happy with the end result:








It's coming together, M-Performance CF Front Spoiler will be next but not sure when I can get it done.

Car looks great! The spoiler really completes the back end! Also just enjoyed reading about your audio install - work of art! If it sounds half as good as it looks I'm sure it sounds awesome!

Tack!

Thanks mate.

Just got back yesterday from a pre-season team event with the baseline for the competition tune - sounds very good

Nice spoiler. I've been surfing the net but can't seem to find it. Could you give me some info on where you got it from? Also what do you think about the contrast of the Carbon Black paint with the carbon fiber spoiler. I have an F36 on order in Carbon Black and know that sometimes the photos don't really capture the real color.

The spoiler is the OEM M-Performance CF spoiler, so check with BMW for availability.

I actually like how it blends. From a distance it is indeed difficult to separate the spoiler from the trunk, but when up close it is clearly visible.

The car with the audio build has been through the EMMA SQ competition season with good results, and to top it all off I took first place in the Swedish National Finals in Skilled OEM on saturday.



European finals in Salzburg in March 2018 is the next stop
