Vorsteiner

I put in a call to the folks at Vorsteiner to see if they offered any of those sweet CF aero kits like I've seen on M3s. The guy literally laughed and said, in the x number of years that I've been working here you're the first person to call about a kit for that car... Answer: NO! Does anyone else know of any other reputable shops that make a kit? *sigh* The GT is so misunderstood and under appreciated!

Theses guys have a PDF brochure @ hamann-motorsports.com for our F07's under the 5 series tab on their website. I am not sure that it is exactly what you are looking for.

HAMANN is very $$$ btw, have you thought about getting M-Sport fenders? Getting M-sport front costs less than Hamann lip I believe.
