    So as some of you will know, I was getting the matte black e92 race car built for me.
    Unfortuney over the summer, some serious health issues have left me with the predicament of having to sell the E92 which was a tough pill to swallow after all the effort that has gone into building it. And for that, I can not thank Will and the guys at GSR enough for doing an awesome build for me.

    This has left a hole in my garage for a more track day orientated toy, and when I found a Fire Orange F80 with Carbon brakes on it I fell in love. The colour is awesome! It also looks amazing say next to my 1 of 1 Yas Marina Blue coloured G31 540i

    Anyway here are some pics. I hope you all like it. The mods will start to come and I’ll keep updating the thread as I go!

    Love the colour. There is someone who lives in my town that drives an F80 M3 Fire Orange too. It’s funny how coincidentally, he also has the corners (carbon), rear spoiler and mirrors carbon and left the rest out. Also he’s got ceramics like you. When i saw your post I thought it was his car at first.

    Stunning mate! One of the best colours on the F80 if not the best! Any plans for more carbon and mods? Lower lip would finish it nicely.

    Very nice. Was this at Rybrook bmw? I enquired less than a day after it came online, the salesman knew nothing about it coming in, only to reply already sold

    He told me somebody purchased it for track days

    Very cool! Great colour.

    A Yas 540 tourer has to be almost a one off too!

    Thanks guys I love it!

    The race car, which has its own thread on here was mega! Just slightly modified

    If you are in the Warwick area then it’s probably the same car

    I love the colour. Front lip, gts wing, rear diffuser and a few interior carbon mods to come. As well as bm3, dampers, exhaust and wheels at some point!

    Yep that’s the car. I enquires on it the day it got listed

    They do look great together. We had to have special permission from bmw Germany to get that colour on a non m car too

    Old kitchen units that were just repurposed. Got some heavy stuff in them which doesn’t help

    The carbon brakes were already on it and the same price as other cars that were available so was a nice extra to have for no extra cost on a track car

    Wow that's an incredible colour :) I don't think I've ever seen one that colour in the flesh. Actually scratch that....I have never seen one that colour in the flesh, as I would definitely remember it. Stunning :)
