M3 30 Jahre - An update - GTS bonnet and mods

Hello,

Some while ago I posted about my M3 30 Jahre edition (UK) in frozen silver. One of just 30 cars in the world and handed over in Nov 2016.

http://f80.bimmerpost.com/forums/sho....php?t=1323717

This is how she looks now...



Here is how she came out of the factory:


As you can see above since arrival into the UK it has had a few additions and modifications - with a few more planned. Perhaps one of the most unusual is the addition of a GTS carbon M4 bonnet painted perfectly in frozen silver.

M3 Competition Pack 30 Jahre UK edition 1 of 30
M4 GTS carbon bonnet
M Performance 763M wheels
Carbon ceramics
M Performance carbon splitter and corners
M Performance carbon rear diffusor
M Performance carbon boot lip
M Performance wing mirrors
M Performance led steering wheel
M Performance carbon gear surround
M Performance handbrake cover
M Performance armrest
M Performance exhaust system
M Performance suspension system
M Performance rear lights
M Performance carbon engine cover
M Performance pedals
M Performance mats
M Performance decals
M Performance stripes
Carbon fibre side skirts
10mm spacers all round

So I absolutely love the carbon bonnet from the GTS and had to fit it to my car. Here is the raw OEM part...







and here it is fitted to the car...































The struts are replaced for this bonnet and the only other part needed is the vent. I had considered painting this gloss or matt black but it comes finished as such so decided to run with the OEM look.

Since posting about the car's arrival on Bimmerpost I've also had some side skirts fitted in carbon (JHPARTS), the M Performance - 763M wheels, suspension, rear lights, armrest and engine cover.

763m M Performance wheels...

Carbon fibre sills...



M Performance alcantara armrest...

The box of kit


Look at those brakes!




First set off


All four corners off




First set going on







Shots taken at 2 or 3 different heights before I was happy with the height:



































Here are some photos before the above modifications...













In 2016 I had the opportunity to take it to BMW HQ and show the modifications I'd made at that time. It was parked next to BMW UK's own 30 Jahre edition...







I hope you enjoy the photos, very pleased with the car so far. The next mod I'm working on is the M Performance rear wing. Not to everyone's taste. In order to fit the M4 wing some shims are needed and new brackets underneath. We are working on these. The original boot lip will need to come off which means repaint. I ordered a new boot for painting as to keep the original.

Here the M Performance wing is just being held for visual...







Thanks

Mat

Agree. This is more proof that M stripes and some of the M Performance cosmetic mods can be used in good taste and to great effect. The car looks legit and the 763M are fantastic.

In the UK we had frozen silver only. I believe it is because the UK concepted the car originally.

Thanks.

It comes to the UK slightly different to the rest of world but essentially a fully loaded M3 with custom interior and all exterior carbon fitted. In frozen silver which is not available for any other UK M3 car.

Yeah it was a surprise to me also, the part number is: 63212450105

I believe there are 2 versions depending on LCI or not.
