"These build journal entries are part of a Special Series covering BMW M's most popular wing designs.
Written in collaboration with Silvano at CarbonProduction GmbH, I take you into the historical development of these wings all the way to my unboxing impressions of the GTS, GT4 and M235/240i Racing wings.
In this journal entry, I discuss why I initially skipped on the MK2 GT4, and why I'm revisiting this: a discontinued carbon trunk."
My initial choke-job.
In the Spring of 2021, I got my hands on Silvano’s MK2 GT4 wing. It was the first product I ever received from CarbonProduction GmbH. As with most products I curate, it's important for me to see them first-hand.
The boxed GT4 Mk2 wing: packaged for a trip to the moon.
I still managed to test fit to my E92 M3. Back then, I was rocking the M Performance spoiler.
Not his fault!
My Stripper build wasn't yet to the point where I felt it could sport a wing.
Sure it's always been Fire Orange, but it was still running on stock ZCP wheels, suspension and brakes.
I was jumping the gun. This was before EuroConnex was a thing: circa Spring 2020.
I wanted a new trunk.
Candidly, I was reluctant to drill into my OEM Fire Orange trunk. I thus got to work on importing CSL trunks from Germany in hoping of fitting the wing to it.
Unfortunately it never materialized. Logistics being what they were during covid, it made importation too expensive.
I sold the wing to @joshquan who fitted it to his tuned E92 M3.
Inspiration from a friend.
Josh happens to have friends with taste. He sent me pictures of his friend’s E92 M3 painted in Santorini Blue.
What caught my eye most was the CSL trunk and GT4 wing with GTS mounts. This is perfection.
In the Summer of 2022, I finally got my hands on a used Vorsteiner CSL trunk for my E92 from a EuroConnex member.
You can read the complete entry here as I look to bring this back into production.
Up next, it’s time to revisit this.
I cover my unboxing impressions of my final wing selection for my build.
