Sorry to hear this and glad you are OK. I am sure a small part of you sees a blank slate and is overwhelmed but also excited. Looking forward to see what you come up with!!!

Second, welcome to team white!!

Looking forward to what else you have in store for this one.
Oh Yea - Alpine white is pretty fresh, I must admit! Definitely going to try to out-do my last M6!

I loved your build and came expecting more car porn, but this wisdom keeps things in better perspective. Cars are great but life is more precious. I'm looking forward to seeing this build nonetheless. Thanks for sharing all these adventures.
Definitely puts things/life into perspective. Got a new car less than a month after. Not so true for a life. I'll be sure to try to introduce more car porn for you moving forward lol

Getting a new car asap was definitely part of the healing process! Thanks my man

"overwhelmed but also excited" - you nailed it! Frustrating trying to source parts, get appointments with various shops, etc. Tough...buuut all the while excited to see this one come to life.

Dude so sorry to hear this - came to the thread expecting to see the next amazing update - although I guess in a way a newer lower mileage F06 is a great update too! Glad to hear you're ok and I'm excited to see the plans for the new car - I'm sure it'll be even better.

So here in round two what will you repeat from the first build and what will you change? I am curious about what you learned that could inform your approach here.

Tbh, I had no issues with my previous set up and I pretty much plan to repeat it with minor tweaks here & there. I was able to salvage my intake, charge coolers, downpipes, Meisterschaft mid section, and my steering wheel. So all of those will be going on this car. To complete the exhaust, I've gone with Meisterschafts SGT system. It's their non-valved track exhaust. Although my set up sounded great with the Megan Racing mufflers, I have a feeling it's going to be next level now.
I will be getting a stage 3 meth kit installed again but with bigger nozzles to spray a little more volume (#6 vs #4). And I went with my same tuner, Mission Performance for my file. I think I'm going to run an e85/93 mix as well with the tune as the owner of the tuning company recommended it to get the most out of the car, safely.

Aesthetically, I'm going with a different shade of grey for the wheels as well as getting the calipers coated a different color. I'm definitely doing a front lip (Dinmann I believe) and possibly side skirts as well. And maybe a couple of other small changes like carbon fiber side mirror replacements. There's a few other things I'm considering but that won't be until later this year or early spring.

Thanks for this reply. I think the carbon on white is a really nice look. The contrast makes it stand out much more than on black paints. Definitely like the idea of carbon mirror caps. Have you found good F06 side skirts? There are more choices for the F12/13, it seems. I am looking forward to following the build!

If I do side skirts I probably go with Dinmann as well to match the aggression of their front lip. It should all pair well with the Vorsteiner style diffuser.

Another option for side skirts if you're looking is Maxton Design. No real CF option but the gloss black does look nice.

Dinmann is only 30 mins away from me. Yes their CF aero is very unique and kinda rare that you donít see them often and not like Vorsteiner. Iím on my second front lip now with in 7 months and I think Iím going with Dinmann front and sides next time I mess up my front lip again.

Dinmann aero would definitely pop and look good on your AW.

Sheeshh, two in 7 months is no fun. Especially if theyíre near the price point of Dinmannís. But yeah, they are rare like you said. I think thatís part of what drew me toward them. I originally was going with the Vorsteiner GTS-V lip which is also kind of rare (itís not the V style a lot of people have) but I ended up liking the contours of the Dinmann version a little more. When you really study its detail, youíre able to see how it follows the bumper lines quite well.
