Malakas - you still haven't joined the OFMWSLWOSCC/SG (Over Fourty Men With Silly Looking Wings On Street Cars Club / Support Group) yet??? Very disappointing, thought we had you.

Not sure how you can keep resisting this:

Going full wing on the street is not something you can inch into - never going to happen as the rational part of your brain will keep slamming the door on it. Just got to shut your brain down and jump in with both feet without looking. I found it easier after a few whiskey drinks & some late night shopping...

Appreciate the compliment on the car. Actually have another wave of goodies incoming to finish the build (finish, yeah right). The wheels are Signature Wheel SV501 in matte black. 18 x 9.5 & 18 x 10.5. Also have the same wheel in matte bronze - yeah I'm not afraid to rock the bronze + a wing. I have another set of their wheels but in a different design/model in the works for the street so I can use both of these sets as dedicated track wheels. I have a good contact there if you want some info.

Do not have a really good pic with the bronze on. Can kind of get an idea of them though

Been there, done that re: late night shopping.

Those Signature wheels are beautiful. My Apex wheels get a lot of abuse on track -- I'd cringe if I did something to a nice set of wheels on track. The bronze looks really nice on AW.

That's how I know I'm getting old and boring - used to wake up after a bit of drink and the first questions were where am I and who is that. Now is oh no, what did I buy & why does it take three days for my head to stop hurting...

I hear you on the track wheels. Definitely going to take a beating - but wanted forged and to be able to control the offsets. Running them on my E92 M3 race build so it was kind of a natural carryover to go with them on the M2 also.

Interested on your feedback from the track with the wing. Are you running COTA next month?

HAHAHA! Love it.

My car parts are usually bought in one of two scenarios.... I've come home to what appears to be an Amazon warehouse with boxes stacked at my front door (thanks wife) or if I've made a few margaritas at home. Red wine or any other liquor does not induce car part buying. Tequilla however... Well I'll show you pics of my new M steering wheel

Wheels are awesome. I had matte bronze on my GTR and love it! Just ordered a set of Finspeeds for the M2.... They look really similar to the signature

Am I going to see you guys this weekend at COTA? I'm just doing the Sunday.

Actually had the wing on the car last time I was out at COTA. Not a big aero track & combined with the low level of front downforce on my car - I ran the wing at the minimum AOA. Could definitely feel the difference. Through the two big higher speed sweepers the rear was more planted and was able to pick up a few mph. Going to have a real splitter on the front next time and dial in a bit more AOA on the wing & see how that goes. All in all definitely a fan of the wing on the track.

If I start on the tequilla I won't even be able to make it to the computer - kind of a 50/50 good/bad thing...

Finspeed, very nice choice. Big fan of the bronze on the GTR - look good on pretty much any body color. I have a set of Volk TE37's in their matte blue gunmetal still sitting in boxes in my garage. And the GTR is still sitting there...

We are going to be at COTA this weekend but taking my E92 M3 for a shakedown before SCCA there next weekend. Probably just going to be Saturday too, but not 100% yet. Sounds like there should be a nice BMW turnout there this weekend. We are in garage #26.

I’m thinking about classing up so I run aero and some stickier tires. And destroy the rest of the suspension and axles faster...lol

Appreciate the feedback.

Not sure what garage were in... I'll have a big orange "25" on the car but only going Sunday. If you're around stop by! I'm hanging with a bunch of P-cars. Ewwww
