BMW DIY Guy 'Lillith' F87 M2C build out thread

Its always fun to share out your build journey and I wanted to do the same with my new love, this incredible F87 M2C, as I did on my much loved F32.

I will be updating this thread as I move through the build on this truly incredible machine, so bear with me as it gets updated over time. My F32 build took several years, and while I suspect this one will be faster, it will still be a labor of love over time.

As the build progresses, I will share updates, timing and DIY videos throughout the build! I am also planning on getting a good baseline dyno run here soon (2/20 probably) so I can measure progress moving forward from stock!

I know as of right now, there isn't a lot to show here but it will grow.

I saw an M Performance sticker in the pictures. What options are already installed by the previous owner?

Oh good point.. I should add those to the build sheet since they are extra per se. I will pull the list so I get them right and not off the top of my head. 8)

I used the BMWCCA window sticker. I have the grill badge but I am not a fan of it. It sits in my desk draw.

Most definitely.. will have a video series on it, and see it as critical work even before any RWP work

Sounds like a very RARE thing at bone stock, but would like to avoid it regardless. The car will no doubt be tuned some day.. but building towards that to be ready.
