M3 Lightweight rear wing (Technically its the GT Class II Wing), as seen in one of the previous posts :) 

Might eventually go to the M3 Lightweight front splitter too.

Okay so the wing took quite a bit more to fit up then I originally anticipated.  The paint will need redone at some stage too, however I am stoked with how it looks, and the height of it means I dont loose any rear visibility!

Excuse the filth! The car was pretty dirty from the roadtrip to Queenstown and back with nowhere to clean it properly along the way!

Also I made more poor life decisions this week and ended up buying an SC14 supercharger....

Thoughts at the moment are to bottom mount it where my air conditioning compressor was and then run a small front mount intercooler.

I will get under the car this weekend to have a proper look and see where I can make it fit nicely! 

This bit of the project however will take quite a while as I know it will cost a lot to implement and I kinda need to start saving a little bit of money!

Keep your eyes peeled for more to come...

I will try get some better photos of the wing and might do a little breakdown of how it was all fitted up and trimmed if people want to know more!

So I decided to enter into 4's and Rotors down in Timaru... that meant that I really needed to respray my front bumper to get rid of stone chips along with a few other bits and pieces.

While I was at it I couldn't deal with having a sagging headlining any more! My dad gave me a hand and we wrapped the whole thing in some nice faux suede for that alcantara look!

I still have the black sun visors to put in, however I will never ever do another sunroof headlining!  The sunroof was in and out about 6 times to get it working correctly with the sunshade pulling back correctly!

This was all followed by a good cut and polish!  The missus even lent a hand to help with the wheels!

After cleaning everything and giving it a good cut and polish here are some glamour shots from after 4's and Rotors in Timaru!

This is awesome!!

My only complaint is it would be nice if you shot those wall photos with a slightly higher aperture so the whole car was in full focus not blurred out.

AND HEY where is the boot BMW emblem??

Will you be getting an aftermarket ecu to run the supercharger?

I know a few people have had trouble tuning them with the stock ecu.

Thanks man!  Yeah my brain wasnt too engaged at the time I shot it and I didnt think of stopping the lens down more!  I ended up photoshopping out the boot badge as my one is a bit messy and I couldnt manage to tidy it up so it was easier to just remove it :P

Yeah the polymer paint sealant worked really well!  Alltho I tried some Valet Pro and Gyeon products before the show and shine and I will be definitly getting some of that!  The Valet Pro Black to the Future is amazing on trims and tires!

At this stage the supercharger build has been called off, its still sitting in my garage but I have kinda given up on fitting it.  The costs for actually doing it propperly with a link or megasquirt and then brackets etc I may as well save and put an S54 in... but then again the car is more than fast enough for what I use it for so maybe I might replace my daily Ti with a 335....
