You can't be scared to try something different, I will keep it until after Petite Le mans. It has taken me over a year to finally get all the aero completed.

What mounts did you use for the rear wing? Was it a straightforward fit?

You deserve tons of credit for all of your unique mods! I especially love the M4GTS wing that you installed. It flows very nicely and is a great alternative to the APR system. Did you purchase it direct from BMW?

Thank you for sharing and good luck at Road Atlanta!

I had a local shop who builds race cars build custom mounts into the hatch. They are similar to what APR has on the external part of the hatch, they just welded them to the internal side.

Only the wing, the 11" risers I got from IND and the side plates I had made by Carbon Signature.

Here is a closer look at the mounts they fabricated for the wing.

Due to the curvature of the hatch they fabricated these plates on the internal part of the hatch.



I have not had the car detail yet, but the IND risers come with a felt bottom to fit against the hatch.



Top view



I really wanted a different look than the APR or VRS wings I saw. IND has the full package on their site, I was lucky enough to have a few connections at my dealer to get the wing at a good price and then I had my carbon guy make the end plates and bought the risers from IND.

I have never had any issues with the paint, but I do keep it buffed and polished. My weekly therapy sessions.

They did it on the car, but I will ask and see if they can use my car as the template. Give me a couple of days, as we are heading to the track for the weekend.

Echoing others, stripes distract from your awesome looking ride.

Paint the calipers tri-color!!! I think that would go great with your theme, the silver calipers just look boring and stale which the rest of your car certainly doesn't!

So, I know it's been awhile since I have posted an update. I finally got the crank, pistons & rods from Lang Racing in a few weeks back. Got the engine pulled and sent it to the machine shop. Moving through this build, I am taking advantage of all the end of the season discounts and started to pick up a few sponsorships along the way.

  • Got rid of all the cats and resonators, Supersprint had a sale and I grabbed the Straight Pipe and x-pipe to go along with my headers and RPI exhaust cans.

    Upgrading all the whole Coolant System
    Mishimoto assisted with a partial sponsorship. I ordered their upgraded radiator, oil cooler, and braided hose lines

    Also, went ahead and grabbed a new Water Pump.

    New clutch and flywheel from Turner. the JB Racing upgraded Kit. Z4 M HD Clutch And Flywheel Kit T#878

    I was able to ship out the throttle bodies to Dinan

    CSL Airbox has been ordered from Geoffsteel with an expected delivery date in Jan 2018.

I cannot wait for our first track event in March. She will be back with a vengeance in 2018. I just started putting a site together that will have a full build sheet at www.MCoupeGTS.com.

You should come down to our March CCA event at Road Atlanta or in May we will be a Roebling. It's a Great Group to run with.

I have quite a few other tricks up my sleeve with this project.

They had to use the none m e46 radiator to build off of; the mounting is the same. I will get some picks for you when I get to the shop this weekend. They offered to custom make one for me if I would send the original up. The guys in development are first class.
