Default Re: flipm3: 2004 Silver Grey E46 M3

It's been about a full year now since my last post, even prior to that, haven't really posted much of an update. The last couple years have been an absolute blast with Ole Grey. She went through a very drastic transformation with the addition aero, seats, brakes, power, and chassis setup.

Lap times at all of our local tracks really plummeted as I gained confidence in the car. Never have I once enjoyed a car on track so much in the many years.


For some time now, I've been tossing and turning, trying to decide what's the direction of the car. Do I build it as the ultimate HPDE? Do I keep teetering this line between track car that's street-able?

In the recent weeks, I have decided to build a car that will compete with wheel-to-wheel racing. Some of the modifications on my car are not legal for the class we want to compete in, so I will slowly start parting the car out.


A list of the notable stuff that I know will have to go:
  • Supersprint XPipe (Non-Resonated)
  • Supersprint Sport Muffler
  • Floßmann M3R Front Splitter
  • Floßmann M3R Front Canards
  • Floßmann CSL Trunk w/ Wing Supports
  • Floßmann GT2 ALMS Wing
  • Status Gruppe Tuning CSL Diffuser - 2x2 Pre Preg
  • AKG Motorsport Stage 2 Shifter
  • AKG Motorsport Selector Rod
  • AKG Motorsport 95A FCAB
  • AKG Motorsport 75D Diff Bushings
  • Coby Wheel EBrake Knob
  • Coby Wheel EBrake Boot
  • OE Arm Rest Delete Center Console
  • OE CSL Cabin Air Filter Housing
  • Ground Control Baby Tether Eliminator Kit
  • Volk Racing TE37 18x10 +25
  • Apex EC7 18x10 +25

I will be making numerous threads in the For Sale section for everything. I figure throw out a feeler here first, while I sort through pricing and condition of everything.

Quite a few stock stuff will be up for sale as well:
  • Black Cloth Seats and Door Panels (Heated, Manual)
  • Rear Parcel Shelf
  • Black Carpet
  • Trunk Interior Panels
  • Front Bumper (fog light brackets deleted)

Despite the shift in goals with the car, I still hope to update this thread with stuff I've done in the past. Been a long time being active here with the personal account, can't wait to share more with you all.
