Was at Daytona yesterday for the Roar before the 24 and got to get close up to the M4 GT3 where Thomas Plucinsky from BMW NA gave the BMW CCA M Chapter I preside a walk around the new M4 GT3 race car! Enjoy!

If you are not a BMWCCA member yet please consider it. The new M Chapter will have a packed calendar of events for 2022 including specially priced M Chapter Days at BMW Performance Center and at BMW Performance Center West Thermal.

Feel free to DM me questions about BMWCCA or the M Chapter! If you are looking to join or renew I might have a discount code for you

No joke, only now, I understand why the grilles are as they are; mind blown!!

That is one magnificent rig and the grille, I'll probably be shot for this, but the grille actually looks strikingly gorgeous. The Red one is awesome but the black one with the yellow lights on, is just about ready to rip your head off

What a beast

OP, Jason, Foxtrot, thank you for sharing

I know Vorsteiner did their thing and tried to replicate this grille as best they could & I like it.

But whichever company releases the grille closer to this GT3 version and it's polished up, I'm sending you a fat check

Car has built in air jacks, those stands you see there Tom was explaining that they are one off billet pieces to perform alignment and they also use the bottom piece for corner balancing.

I like the additional set of front lights in the "hockey stick" area.

Now that I see the GT3 front end again, I am reminded how much I like the design.

The Vorsteiner aftermarket grill took its design cues from the GT3 car, smart and well executed

It appears they designed the race car first, which had a definite need for the added air flow the grill provides, and then the grill design had to be integrated into the street versions of the chassis. I guess this is why only the 4 series has the grill, and they had to give it to the M3 since motorsport version to match the M4.

Good point. The front end looks proportionate now. The tech is amazing & gauges look so easy to read. They have some amazing tools too. Looked like some kind of killer torque wrench under the rear diffuser. Interesting how much they rely on the waste gates.
