Talking TAG Motorsports - BLACK BETTY - F82 M4 Project Build Thread

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com



She is here and it is safe to say that we didn’t waste any time pulling out the tools and getting to work on this project! We received our project M4 a couple weeks ago from our friends over at BMW Encinitas, they helped us get our Black Sapphire on Black Full Leather, including Ceramics and all the other bells & whistles BMW had to offer making it a hefty 91k Build. First up we wanted to post a quick shot of the car in its virgin state. All photos below are from our amazing photography Robert Grubbs / Grubbs Photography. Here it is in its stock state:

Next up we wanted to get cranking with the wheels and the suspension on the vehicle. For our first set of wheels our friends over at MORR sent us this gorgeous set of 20" MORR MS53 Wheels in their Rose Gold finish. We quickly ran a couple of test fitments and we were good to go!

For suspension, we pulled the factory shocks and springs and swapped those for a set of H&R Super Sport Springs temporarily until our other suspension option arrive.

While the car was on the lift and we had the suspension pulled, it was time to paint the massive calipers that accompany those killer carbon ceramic rotors! It is an expensive option, but we are so happy that we ordered the car with the carbon ceramics - such a game changer for this beast. For the color we wanted a traditional Black/Red Themed build (at least for the first round) so we went with Lamborghini’s new metallic red - Rosso Mars.

Additionally, we decided to gut the interior and pull the seat-backs out to get matched in Rosso Mars red along with some other accents such as the shift knob and steering wheel trim surround.

After about a week in the shop, we had everything dialed in and it was off to get this beauty shot! We knew we were in good hands with the infamous Grubbs...and that we were.

Stay tuned as this build progress'. We have plenty in the works with our friends (and neighbors) at HRE, Akrapovic, KW Suspensions, GIAC and more









UPDATE!

So we decided to change it up for your viewing pleasure

We have here a set of 19" HRE FF01 Wheels in both the Gloss Silver and Satin Black finish on our M4, fitted to the OEM Tires. Both finishes are IN STOCK ready to ship. Give us a call for more information!

Stay tuned for more updates as well, as our Bolt-In Rollbar goes in this week, as well as our 20" HRE RS103's.

We like to make sure that the BIMMERPOST community has as much information and photos of all options/variations available to you, so that we can help you make the best decision possible when it comes to modding your new F80 M3 or F82/3 M4

Awesome! Just wish the wheels were dark gunmetal or black. The bright gold just doesn't work IMO. The gold of the Tag decal looks good. The wheels look like fresh copper.

The bronze / gold colors are incredibly different to capture with a camera.

Looking fabulous guys. I bet it looks even better in person.

I HATE this forum.

Just when I think Ive settled in on my color (SO) you guys come in with my second option and make me rethink the whole thing! Dont you know my wife and friends hate me for being so wishy washy? Dont you know my boss wants more productivity out of me?

This build is awesome and beautiful and any other word I can put on it. Well done.

The HRE's look so much better than the Morr's in my opinion, especially in the satin black. All the car needs is darker tinted windows.

Your first mod should have been to take the "efficient dynamics" sticker off the back window
