I would be very interested in that.
For now, no. I am however going to assemble the hardware required to modify a Motion Motorsports panel. You can slot the panel yourself for adjustment, or just use static mounting. The tray strut kit I make ties it all in ensuring it doesn't rip off the panel, but one could try to run without the struts.

Understood, thank you. Looks like a great product (the struts)!

What is the process for acquiring one of these kits? I'm a few weeks away from needing it.

Does running the splitter in the front without an offsetting spoiler change the aero on the car negatively?

The strut kits are available now, but yes you should run rear aero (or front aero with rear) per BMW's recommendations. That recent Nurburgring record setting E36 is running a high rise GT wing with only the front splitters on though.

Here is the finalized fitment of the GT tray mounted to the Motion Motorsports panel. For now I've decided not to add the ability to slide the tray as it significantly reduces the underpanel strength and making it stronger the right way just puts you into OE bracket territory. You can however setup different positions to install the tray which are very easy to adjust if you use the rivnut mounting method.










And for news on the wickers. There is none. We're exactly one year into that project as of today and still nothing. I'm still pushing them though.

And finally some wicker updates...

A newborn gurney flap


They fixed the bulging issue, but the machinist somehow decided to make one dimension larger (I do not know why). A third die has to be made, however I kind of like the thick version and will getting a small batch done. It actually looks really good. Material is SPOT on and acts just like the OEM part. No wavy China rubber here!





110cm length on the bottom of a GT2 wing.







Same 110cm on the top of the GT2 wing



Playing with the idea of making the thicker variant into a factory spoiler option. Needs the length chopped and the edges profiled for a better fit.

I have actually been trying to think how it would look on a factory high arch spoiler. I don't know about anyone else, but for my purposes I would rather install it with the shorter edge up. I am not sure if that would make a difference for you design wise.

My brother's Artic has a high arch I can play around with that. I'll demonstrate all the edges soon.
