Didn't know they offered this. You flashed it yourself? Are you happy with the results?
Yes, it is easy to install/flash and I am happy with the results. I also have a CSF Intercooler and oil cooler installed.

The car will be ready in about a week and my first trackday will be on Sunday 13. of May. I will post more pictures during the build prosess.
Serious amazing build mate. The stealth effect tops it. I was planning for the Xpel Stealth wrap also.
By the way, what type of finishing did you use for your raze aerokit ? Gloss or matte ? Did you consider the forged carbon at all ?

You can never go wrong with revozport carbon fiber, they are extremely high quality.

Great thread and build... looks like a 100k M2 by the looks of the specs!! Went to check that body kit at Revozsport and the link to the BMW section is dead??? It’s like they’ce stopped selling it?

Sorry for the late reply, but I have replied via PM so you got answers to almost every question posted here.

Forged carbon was not an option when I ordered this almost a year ago. The pieces have very high quality and I am happy I chose RevoZport.

I have decided to do some minor upgrades before next season and I will go for AP Racing brakes on the rear and APEX SM-10 18x11 ET44 for the rear also.

I am also looking at carbon doors to save more weight, but since this is a car I also drive on the road I will not fit a full cage so carbon doors is not a very good option I think.

There is a chance I will check out bootmod3 also and see if I can get more power from that compared to what I get with ESS tuning, they also offer the GTS DCT mode that I am curious to check out on track.

Thanks!

Sorry, I just use the default height and it is around 2cm lower than stock if I am not mistaken. It can be lovered more, but then it can be a problem on tracks like Nurburgring and I plan to drive there every season in the future.

Andreas did the Ohlins improve everyday ride or did they make it worse? Obviously on track they are a great step up, but I'm interested how you've found them on the road, particularly with the rear end which I feel can get a bit bouncy and unsettled around town at times. Thx

The Řhlins is better both on track and on the road. It is no longer bouncy and unsettled like with the original dampers.

I am concidering the big turbo upgrade by G-Power and might have it installed this year, but most likely next year due to the cost. I got an offer with Turbo, Software, downpipe, G-Power/Awron display, V-Max increase, GTS gearbox software and installation for 10000 Euros.

Are there anyone in here with the G-Power turbo upgrade?

.

Have you done a test fit with the 18x11 ET44? Or are you just just assuming they will fit based on the space you have with the 18x10?

I'm looking at the same 18x11 wheel size myself, but wondering if camber adjustments will be enough to avoid rubbing. Maybe some fender rolling required?
I know Apex offers the M2 specific 18x10.5 ET40, how hard could it be to fit 0.5" right?


Love the build, keep the progress and pictures coming

Thanks!

They offer the same in 19x11 ET44 for the M2 and I asked Apex if it would fit and they assured me it will. My car is in winter storage so I have not tested yet and I have not received the wheels yet either. The wheel will be 2mm closer to the fender compared to the 18x10 ET33 so I dont think it will be a problem.

I will keep on posting pictures of the coming mods! G-Power will most likely come in April, I am also looking at Eventuri intake and engine cover. AP Racing brakes on the rear will come in April also.

I will also most likely attend Skylimit Events trackday at the Nordschleife on April 29.
