Unique/Cool Parts of the M2 CS Racing. Some fit M2 street versions

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
It turns out the M2 CS Racing has more than a few interesting and cool unique parts. Fortunately for us, it also looks like many of those can be retrofitted to the F8x street cars too!

Informative walkthrough.👍
Thanks for posting.

I have a few of these parts in may cart.
Waiting for a bit more info to confirm some details w/ plug and play fitment considering all of the comfort and trim elements are completely stripped down/out.

Awesome video, thanks! As a matter of semantics though, BMW has always referred to sway bars with the German word "Stabilizer" since the beginning of time...at least my time with them dating back to 1972 and my E3.

very informative. Thank you.

One thing that i would eventually (maybe) like to add on my street car is the CSr wing. Is there a part number and at what price ?

You can find all the CSR parts on an ETK hosted by a few dealers like this one.

Great video - thanks for posting!

I'm planning to incorporate a few of the parts in my M2 CS build.

I already have the M240ir rear wing and trunk, plus the M2CSR interior door panels.

The motor mount solution is was new to me, very interesting.

Great stuff, as usual

A couple other things to keep in mind for those who might be considering using the M2CSR control arms on their street cars are that there is probably no provision for the headlight level sensor rod in front and the wheel carriers might be different in the rear (in what way and if it matters I don't know, but the part numbers are different)

clarification for anyone who can see details and info better through any internal parts systems guides.

I am also considering the M2 CS Racing Front Fascia Grille Mesh.

I see the center most intercooler / L&R intakes and Kidney Radiator Mesh, but don't see the item called out in the attached images..


Anyone have any idea on that?


Thanks in advance!

I'm interested in the 30mm front sway bar but I understand it's a bugger to change as it requires the front subframe to be lowered. Can anyone share experience on this?

I really want to get that front splitter!

Never a fan running CF on a front splitter unless your car is a garage queen.

Part number is 51-62-8-328-240 and its about $700. Win/win!

Check out my F8x suspension deep dive video at 8:13 where I show the front sway bar. You don't need to drop the subframe for the front.

I believe there are extra mounts for the splitter too you might want to get, unless you're planning on mounting it some non-standard way.

Can you share the RealOEM link? I can't find the CSR under motorsport.

Great video and informative but.....the main reason they use a Full rear coilover on factory race cars is because its just easier to make adjustments/swapping.
