Want to make your road legal M3 look as if it came straight from a Le Mans race and instantly quash any street racer's desire to race you? German tuner GTHaus' new M3 widebody kit may achieve exactly that. The GTHaus M3 features a fully carbon fiber widebody kit with massive fenders, front bumper with splitters, sideskirts with winglets, and huge rear wing, , as well as 20" wheels (11x20"/13x20"), and Brembo BBK. The bodykit is priced at around $12,500.

No performance specs have yet been released, except that a supercharger kit will power this extra wide M3.

I don't see any Brembos

Is that price correct? If so, that's half the $25k price for the Vorsteiner wide body kit. The Vorsteiner kit is CF. Is the GTHaus kit CF? If not, that may account for the price difference.

Those wide fenders and quarters would have to take a beating from rocks and other road debris!

^It says it's CF.

Better than the Vorsteiner one and far better priced..... However I'd think you looked like a complete jackass if you drove a car like this down the street. It's for show only.

And for those who don't know, anytime you increase the downforce you increase the drag, so you can say goodbye to gas milage and power.... Increased downforce is only good for high speeds and high speed turns... like those found on a racetrack. There's zero reason to increase the downforce of this car if you just drive it on the street.

The Vorsteiner package at $25K includes wheels and tires as well.

That accounts for a large portion of the cost.

19" or 20" Forged wheels with Michelin PS2 tires according to the link below...

It seemed from the original post that the wheels were included in the GTHaus kit, but not the BBK. If not, you're quite correct that the wheel/tire cost would account for a large portion of the price difference.

German tuner GTHaus? GThaus is as German as Bratwurst is Chinese.

GThaus is some Asian (China, Korea,etc...) knock off company that sells Meisterschaft exhausts.
