    I checked it out at the show and they are running 325s right now.

    Thanks for the info! Surprised it isn't wider with fenders that wide, the offset can probably be far more aggressive.

    Unfortunately it needs to be an E92/93 M3 coupe over convertible, a 335I will not work.

    I know ah, that is just f*@king insane pricing, but it being carbon fiber it would be lighter and look sweet! Click here to enlarge

    I guess I would have to stick to my original plan and go M-tech! Click here to enlarge

    They got back to you but did not respond to my e-mail. Click here to enlarge

    I mean, the 25k does not even include the hood, trunk, and installation? What about if I don't want their wheels or tires? 6 weeks and it has to be at Vorsteiner? That self imposed 100 unit limit is not going to be a problem.

    The kit doesn't have to be carbon fiber though... that is what is keeping the price insane. If there were any weight savings to be had they would have said.

    It is just like their carbon hood, expensive, just for looks, no real weight savings.

    I see, well they never mention any other materials, I guess they are pushing the more expensive way so they can pay for development, so anyone know where I can get a cheap M-Tech kit! Click here to enlarge

    E-mail them again, I did get an error message the first time I did it.

    I am on your side. I think there is no flow with the flares. Personally, if the kit were offered to me at no charge, I would turn it down. Certainly not worth 20K!

    I don't know about the E92 M3 hood, but there's a significant weight savings from the E46 Vorsteiner GTR hood. That thing is featherweight.

    Not sure what the total weight savings would be on this kit. Maybe 150 lbs?

    Definitely for "discerning clientele".

    I've come to notice you typically get what you pay for in this regard.

    Not a big fan of the kit but man - that pricing is insane! Especially without it including the hood/boot.
