Californian tuning company Vorsteiner Race Technologies has just released a limited edition GTS3 lineup for the BMW E92/E90 M3. With a full front bumper and hood replacement units, the new upgrade consists in improving the appearance of the car, with no improvements particularly addressed to the engine. According to 4wheelsnews.com, the GTS3 Front Bumper available only for the aforementioned BMW models, features an optional vacuum bagging carbon fiber construction, has a revised center mouth opening with a 6.35mm extension, a lowered ground clearance with downward extension of 25.4mm, redesigned side ducting eyebrows and 1-piece design carbon fiber front splitter. Front Bumper options, available from September 2009:
- Full Carbon Fiber w/ Carbon Fiber Front Splitter(carbon fiber honey comb matrix)
- DVWP w/ Carbon Fiber Front Splitter (dry vacuum woven plastic)
Vorsteiner also worked on the GTS3 vented hood, which is available for the E92 M3 only, with features that include vacuum bagging carbon fiber construction, revised central power dome with sharper tension edges and dual ventilation openings for engine heat extraction.
Vented Hood available options:
- Full Carbon Fiber Double Sided (carbon fiber honey comb matrix)
- Full Carbon Fiber Single Sided (carbon fiber honey comb matrix)
As mentioned, there's no performance upgrade brought with the new GTS3 lineup. However, earlier this year the tuner has launched the Titanium Exhaust System for the same models, with 35 lbs weight savings over factory unit. Moreover, the new exhaust adds 14 horsepower and 13.23 lb/ft extra torque to the standard unit.
