I can’t bring myself to title this a “build” thread. This is the first car I’ve ordered where I check a bunch of boxes and the car showed up 97% done.

Up to this car I buy cheap Mustangs and Porsches, spend years and countless hours restoring and modifying and then sell the Mustang for a loss and the Porsche for a profit.

I ordered this car with the money from my 1979 930 Turbo. The car was a multi year build and was a blast. I am ready for a modern car at 50 years.

I originally was smitten by the CSL. But the two dealers in my area asking a $50k bump and my daughter always asking why we didn’t have a cool car with 4 seats moved me into ordering a M4 my way.
I figured I would get all the performance goodies and then add a few CSL styling bits to create “MY” car.

The car is, obviously, a 23 M4 Competition. I went Red on Red because I’ve always liked the 50’s and 60’s cars this combination. I selected the carbon packages inside and out. CCB brakes because my GT3RS has them and they are amazing! BMW or Porsche CCBs are the cats meow. Carbon buckets and they are the most comfortable seats ever. My daughter even made that exact statement. At 5’11” and 30” waist I feel like BMW made a foam mold for me. Sorry big guys your missing out.

I added the M Exhaust, M door sills, M side vents and M floor mats

My so calle build (Seriously have a hard time calling this a “build”) Is CSL tail lights and grill. Yellow DRLs. Turner splitter; because I don’t like the CSL splitter, MP HASS and forged wheels.
I wanted the CSL STB but that may not be available anymore.

Anyway here are some random pics of how I got her.

Tonight I installed the CSL tail lights. LOVE them!

Nice progress bro. Are those OEM CSL tail lights Euro-spec or US-spec?

US Spec OEM. I ordered them when the part numbers were first listed. They were here a month before the car.

Colour combo looks great. Bronze wheels go will. Those CSL talk lights!!!!! I would love to get those but super pricey.

Enjoy the new ride.

La Forge Industries. They are from Singapore in Malaysia.
There is a thread on them in the Wheels and Tires section. Only downside is comunication is through WhatsApp and slow. But nobody has got burned.

https://lf-ind.com/

Some trash talk about them from the people that spent $13k for similar forged wheels. These were $3K delivered. With some custom tweaks to the design. And machining for factory caps is free.

I could get 4 different sets of wheels for the price of one HRE set

I'm loving this "build!" It brings back an old school vibe -- with the color, and the DIY. Reminds me of the vw/porsche and europen car magazine days, when red was the default, LOL!

Weíll I was 17 when that magazine was published. Building crap into a cool car is all Iíve ever known.
This is my first new car build. My daughter was just teasing me about buying a new car and tearing it apart already.
