Limeypride F93 M8 Competition GranCoupe Build by RG Sport (PICTURE HEAVY!!!)

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
On behalf of limeypride , I am putting together his car's build thread.

1 day old 2020 BMW M8 Competition GranCoupe got treated by me, personally, on a few simple mods to beautify this already gorgeous ride.

Long story short, he has been hitting me up a few weeks prior to delivery. Planning things out on what and how to get things done before driving this gorgeous car to its home, 1000+ miles away. I hope this time this M8C will stay home for much longer time than his M5's.

After a few discussions and deep research into BMW parts catalog, not knowing what may or may not fit on this new platform which no one even ever touch or do any mods. We both came to an agreement that he is willing to be the "Guinea Pig" on the suspension.

So, the day is finally here.
After a sleepless night (got very excited on this build), this morning, I picked up the car and lend him my F97 X3MC to go around town while I am working on his car. Almost 8 hours later after hitting some snags and 2 hours wasted, here are the outcome.

List of mods:
- H&R Sport Spring for G30 M550
- H&R 15/11 Wheel Spacer in Black
- AutoTecknic Paddle Shifter in Gloss Black to match his Carbon Fiber / Piano Black Interior trim
- RaceChip GTS Black
- Coding (Anti-Dazzle, Trunk close via Keyfob, Video in Motion, etc)

Side Note: Original plan was to use some height adjustable spring instead of H&R Spring. But, I found out that it was missing parts in the set that I received. So we decided to take a big gamble on H&R Spring which the result was spectacular.

Without further due, here are the before and after pictures.

Enjoy, feel free to comment or PM for pricing since I can't quote price openly as per forum policy.

Last Side Note: Apology on the iPhone pictures. I hope it is good enough. It will take me months before I can post, if I use DSLR to take the pictures.

A huge thank you to Ben for going well above and beyond. If you already think highly of Ben and RG Sport, crank it up a notch or 10 and you're closer to the quality and level of service he provides. 🙏 He literally loaned me his shining new X3M... thanks for everything, man!

Sadly, I apparently dragged Seattle's bullshit weather with me and ruined California for a day or two—sorry duuuuuuudes! As hard as we tried, we couldn't quite make the frozen beauty shine (figuratively) in such lackluster lighting conditions.

I'll post more here—positive and negative—as I learn the car.

One photo from the sunny day prior.

Congrats Dean the car looks brilliant!! Im glad you connected with Ben personally so you can see why I choose him for all things M.

EDIT: hows the ride with the M550i's? I like mine but it can be a bit bouncy on heavier speed compressions but of course Im on the M5 chassis.

I asked him if virtual Ben could install my springs, spacers and shift paddles and he came up with some bullshit excuse about it taking longer or needing to get underneath the car—prissy mother f####r!

Sweet J. It lowers a bit more since yesterday.
Those Toilet Papers in the trunk and back seats adds a lot of weight.

I've still got the JB4—I just followed hockeytyme's lead and stacked one tune/box on top of the other for even more power; don't worry, though, I used Velcro to make sure the top one didn't slide off.

That would be the JB4 that will slide off, right? ::cough::

He forgot to bring his JB4. So I lend him a RaceChip, that way he can enjoy his road trip home waving hi to the CHP's.
