BMW F07 GT Bodykit Group Buy

Hey guys!

I talked to Duke Dynamics about creating a bodykit for the GT, and they seemed interested in creating one, but they said it would be cheaper if it was a group buy. Originally, if only one bought the kit, it would be $9500, but with a group we could drop it down to only a mere $1-2K. Anyone interested?

I will send you pics if you request, just PM me.

I have just sent them an email and will probably hear back from them tommorow. Hopefully they will send a sketch or so.

For now: Here is what we will probably get with the kit.

- ACS style F07 front bumper
- Custom made Aggressive rear diffuser
- M-style flared sideskirts
- CSL-style or Vorsteiner-style spoiler

(optional: extra $$$)
-full CSL trunk
- DTM style hood w/ functioning vents

How much are you guys willing to dish out? I told them $800-1600, which is relatively cheap, let you know when they get back.

I'm interested as well! However, does the kit have to come with the spoiler cause I have an ac spoiler already.

Hey guys. So I just heard back from DukeDynamics

They told me that the kits would be $2500 per person (originally they would have been $9600) and spoiler would be optional.

It would take around 6-7 weeks to be made and shipped, so it will be at our doors in mid-July. If you are currently interested they are taking a 50% deposit.

The front bumper is going to be a fusion of the E60 and F10 M5 look, but with a little GT twist (fogs, silver fins for contrast). The rear will be a whole new bumper with an interchangeable M5-style diffuser (I believe then we could use any F10 M-tech diffusers. The side skirts will be flared like M-kit.

Everybody who is seriously interested let me know on here ASAP. Thanks.

I will look at the renderings. Our car arrives tomorrow. It already has the M-Sport pack and as the wife is making this her primary vehicle it may be a hard sell ... Lol. Keep me on the sidelines.

Hey guys! It's been a while I know.

So DD seemed to not work out... but I have a better solution

SC Dynamics (shihwei on the forum) will be creating a custom M-kit with Vorsteiner style lip and diffuser. I need 20 people interested for him to give it $1600 shipped (much cheaper). He guarantees fitment unlike Duke Dynamics also. The more people, the less $$$ we have to spend,

Anyone who is interested PM me immediately with "INterested in M-kit for GT" in the subject line. Thanks.

I'm seriously interested. I'd obviously like to see renderings. What parts are they looking to forge? Just front spoiler/bumper or anything for the sides and/or rear?

Either way, count me in.

Okay...it's been awhile since Dinan_GT teased us with the idea of a custom body kit! Whats up? I just added the H&R Lowering springs...got tired of waiting for Dinan to develop a set.

Hey blkcofy

Sorry to disappoint you brother, but due to the lack of interest, it never happened. Seems like most F07ers just don't care, lol.

If I had like 20-30 interested, we could have definitely done something. But there was like 5-7 people, and then some even dropped off later on, so maybe like 1-2 now. Sad.

But good job on getting H&R's, they are the best look for the GT.
