Replicating the original: a multi-year project coming to fruition

360Carbon's 5 pieces FRP chassis mounted lip for the E9X M3 has been a staple on EuroConnex. It was the 2nd social buy I ever organized in 2020 prior to launching EuroConnex in 2021. 

I have been working with Markus to develop a kit as close to BMW M's original specifications at an attainable price point for most owners. 

Read my Build Journal entry to the development of the GTS lip made from ABS with aluminum brackets, just like the original BMW E92 M3 GTS. 

The specs. 

10/10 OEM Fitment

The replica project is the closest thing to the OEM GTS lip. The CAD designs were created using secretive data to perfectly mimic the OEM curvature of the lip and its chassis brackets. 

This will be the best fitting GTS lip short of OEM. 

ABS lip and adjustable splitter

The ABS composition was developed in close partnership with an OEM sub-contractor in Germany. 

Markus worked with them to come up with the closest possible match to the OEM matte black finish straight out of the injection mold without paint.

The lower spitter is slotted to allow length adjustments for clearance and aerodynamics. 

Metal brackets

The brackets are laser cut from high strength aluminum. They are powdercoated in matte black for a clean finish. They went through a few revisions in Q1 & Q2 2022 to achieve an OEM matching fitment.

The Crowdfunding Project. 

The major differences between producing these lips in FRP and CF versus ABS is the manufacturing process and its inherent requirements. 

The good news is ABS is manufactured much faster than FRP. No more batches. High quantities can manufactured in a short order and delivered rapidly. 

The bad news is ABS requires much higher Minimum Order Quantities (MOQ), furthermore when considering the unique ABS material Markus selected with the ABS supplier. 

Approximately 4 tons of ABS plastic need to be ordered to complete this project. 

We need to raise funds to achieve this as a community. 

The process

Threshold & Terms

The first 50x backers get access to never-to-be-seen-again Early Access Pricing in order to make this project a reality. 

Payments will be required in full and remain fully refundable. 

6 Weeks: Test fitment to lock in commitments

Your payment will remain fully refundable until I have confirmed fitment with the first prototype of the mold on my Orange Stripper E92 M3. At which point it will become non-refundable and fully committed to the project. 

This is expected to happen within 6 weeks of green lighting production upon reaching the 50x required committed members' threshold. 

The initial prototype will be manufactured with the ABS material with a textured appearance. The production units will be with the smooth ABS material that 

My priority is testing the fitment. 

12 weeks: Delivery of production units

There will be a 6 to 8 weeks window for receiving and manufacturing the ABS upper lips and lower adjustable splitters using the smooth ABS material. 

The brackets are manufactured faster. The final kit will be assembled and shipped by Markus from Germany individually to reach member via DHL Airmail to the US (approx 1 week) and DHL sea mail to Canada (approx 4 weeks).

Installation Notes

I highly recommend professional body shop installation for a perfect installation. 

The chassis mounts requires to cut your front bumper for the mounts will clear. There is also some minor trimming required of the felt under tray.  This will fit with the MLT undertray. 

Hardware is not included. I have referenced the GTS SKUs needed:
