It's off season right now and I have some time left to upload videos. So here we go:

Filmed during 2011 ASELC Time Attack round 3, at the end of this session, 2 tires were corded. But it was funny cause I was still 0.5s faster with corded Hoosier R6 than ok BF R1... Also, spring rate might be a bitt too stiff when I'm not running a full slick tires. The difference is also HUGE in lap time.

This one was taken at Le Circuit Mont Tremblant this summer, I'm trying to keep up with those 2 Porsches: the first one is a 997.1 GT3rs and the other one is a 996 GT2 replica with 650hp...

This one was filmed during a lapping day with Viper Club/Bimmershop/MSC at LCMT on July 2011.

Finally I sold the E46 M3 track car in december, the weekend before Christmas. I was looking to switch to a Porsche but found this one and fall in love instantly!

So here is my new car, I think it's a good compromise for a street legal car!


Z4MC 2007 with 56000km, silver gray on imola red

All the usual factory equipment
-bluetooth,Nav,power heated seats,leather


-ESS VT-1 445 S/C Kit ( still great daily driver but with much more power!!)
-Autosolutions SSK / APR CF adjustable front spltter / OE CF Rear Spoiler
-TMS Camber Adjusting Bolt kit, SS Brake lines, Caliper Bushing Kit, Wheel
Stud Kit
-3D Designs Gauge Pod with Boost,Coolant Temp & Oil Pressure Gauges
-BMS Exhaust (X-pipe & Mufflers)
-Apex Arc 18" wheels (9" ft/10"rr) with 245/40 ft & 285/35 rr -V12 tires
-OE wheels & tires

And here is a summary of my 3 days to bring her back to Montreal:

2700 km later, I am back from Halifax with my Z4MC. I live in Montreal, Qc so I had to cross New Brunswick and Nova Scotia to pick up the car.




Road condition were not the best. I did all the trip alone, so about 10-12 hours per day, let say the X5 was thirsty: 17L/100km to go and 23L/100km on my way home. And this is with a aluminum Trailex that weight only 900lbs...

There was a lot of fog on the Cobequid passage in Nova Scotia, I can't see more than 100m up front...


I also hit a big snowstorm between Fredericton et Edmunston, it took me 2 hours more than it was supposed to be. I wasn't able to go over 90km/h. As soon as I hit the brake, ABS was activated and wheels would blocked. A lot of stress when you pull a trailer / 5000lbs of charge on mountain road...



Everything was so dirty when I came back, I won't post pics Wayne cause you might have a heart attack! I spent the entire day to clean up the trailer, X5 and Z4MC with the washing pressure machine.




I went for a spin with the car and the ESS kit is really addictive. Can't wait for summer now!

Allow me to introduce myself; my name is George and this thread made me join this forum. This was one cool thread. I own a 2001 330Ci and frequent the fanatics forum, BUT I must say... I love the maturity of THIS forum. I love to mod, and due maintenance as well. OP you have done an amazing job; are you still racing, and have you done anything else to your already awesome car?

Thanks

I have done like 10 events in the last 2 years. I tried to build the M Coupe to make it faster than the E46 M3 and keep it street legal but it was not even close. The M coupe is faster in the straight line but so slow in curves. It makes a lot of understeer and never been able to make it more neutral.

I did a lot of mods on the M Coupe during the past 2 years (PF BBK, APR wing and splitter, headers, Recaro PP, KW Clubsport, audio and airbag delete, CCW Classic, swaybars, catch can, spherical, 4.0 diff, ...). But I end up selling most of those mods because I have a kid now and won't have time to do event/mechanic/preparing a car next season. I also want to keep the M Coupe more streetable and enjoy it more than 5 events per summer.


I was at Le Circuit Mont Tremblant in July 2013 with the Viper Club.

Here a couple of pics & vids of the day
