Modified M2 G87 is Finally Ready for the Road

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
As soon as we found out we were lucky enough to get the HEA we went to work planning this project. When it came to planning this thing I was fortunate to have a friend in Felix Balines who took his M expertise and went out on his own last year partnering with Greggís Classics and Performance in Durham, NC where he works on just about any make and model on the road. One thing is for sure, Felix is an M genius. Anyway, this project was his brainchild, I told him just to do his thing. Today at Cars and Coffee in Morrisville we had the unveiling. I hadnít even seen it until today, let alone driven it. Needless to say, we ended up with an epic one of a kind result. I realize this car doesnít fit everyoneís taste, but love or hate the G87, youíll have to look pretty hard to find a build like this in the near term. Hope you enjoy.

Very nice!
How did you get the M Performance Steering wheel with a 6spd? The only one anyone is selling is for auto.

Yeah, same here on the heft. I have their titanium V1 and assumed it would fit the G87 no problem but it's nice to see confirmation.

Thanks. Certainly pleased the way it turned out.

As for the steering wheel, it's the same one used in the G80 manual.
