Another one of our well known projects that became well known was the BMW M2, another one that had alot of time and money invested into it, we chose the LCI over the competition simply because of the engine and personal preference, However the M2C definitely had the looks with the new front bumper and of course this benefited the air intake with the updated design of the lower grills. For us another issue with the LCI was the M Sport interior which was another big let down for the LCI over the Competition. So we started by removing the LCI front bumper and replacing it with the M2C front bumper replacing all of the ducts and bumper supports behind to along with the front wheel arch covers to give it that more updated look on the front, we later then removed the bumper again to upgrade the headlights to the BMW M2 ikon headlights improving visibility and giving a completely updated look to the front end. Once this had been completed we then changed the wheels to the 788M so from an exterior point of view this car now had the look of an M2C as it already had retrofitted M wing mirrors to start with. The only downfall of the car now was the interior being an M car it we felt the M sport seats didn't really do it justice. This is what then made this particular car probably the most controversial M2 worldwide. We did consider upgrading the seats initially to the M2C interior but then later fitted a pair of Mclaren Senna carbon fibre fixed bucket seats weighing only a few kg each. We also removed the rear seats and fitted a custom built half roll cage based on the design of the BMW M4 GTS with a double X. The rails were also customised to make these seats fit as they were genuine seats. This car also had all of the M performance goodies including the M performance exhaust, all interior carbon trims including the gear knob and surround, door handles, pedals, LED alcantara race steering wheel, track camera with the BMW app, by now with the car having a track car look with the interior it just seemed like an unfinished project, so we decided to take it a step further by correcting the stance on it by fitting an adjustable coilover suspension kit and spacing the wheels slightly as factory cars mostly have the wheels more inside the arch than inline. The car was coming together by now and looked complete when we added our carbon pack to it including a front splitter, side skirt extensions, a 3 piece rear diffuser, carbon fibre wing vents, instead of fitting a carbon rear spoiler this car was obviously going to stand out by now and we did want to eventually take it on a track as the M2 is said to be one of the best handling cars on the track, up until this point we hadn't actually driven the car ourselves as of yet, we chose to fit a rear wing instead of a spoiler, our intention was for looks but when we did finally get a chance to take her on the road, we later realized the benefit of having a rear wing and the improvements it makes on handling, we fitted an M4 GTS style rear wing in carbon fibre which gave it a much more menacing look. These cars are standard around 370bhp which was the last downside of this car now against the M2C, we then paid a visit to Litchfield tuning who did a stage 1 remap only after a decat pipe was fitted on the front, Litchfield are a well known company that specialize in Nissan GTR's however do not underestimate their talent, we have had many cars tuned and remapped in the past before, the most important question when it comes to remapping an engine is reliability, we drove this car for a year without having a single fault, the remap was safe and the power delivery in every gear was perfect, from a stage 1 this car was now running 420bhp, however the car felt alot more powerful when it was next to cars that we know had 600+ bhp. The car had ECUtek map from Lichfield with 3 switchable maps, the sound was also improved with an adjustable tone from a remote app, these guys are highly recommended by us as we have had tuning done in the past from various other places and would say from experience it would be the safest bet to get a remap at Litchfield tuning for a BMW. We then later fitted a carbon M2 CS Style bonnet as this was the only thing left that on an M2 did not look right being an M car, this was another project that was well recognised at Unit 17 mainly because of the Senna seats but this was a true headturner on the road and track ready at the same time. When it comes to cars even the smallest modification can give a complete change of look, we have had the pleasure of people travelling into the UK from as far as Ireland, Scotland and even the Isle of Wight just to have us fit our products because of the recommendations online on forums and groups, we also ship carbon worldwide as we have a good reputation with many companies in the trade overseas. At Unit 17 UK, all of our team are family with the same interests and passion, we never finish a job until we are satisfied with it as we know how irritating it can be when you purchase something that doesn't fit correctly or there is something not right that you just have to put up with. Our detail to perfection, this is what makes us stand out from our competitors, every customer we deal with is dealt with the respect that we would like to think we would get if we was a potential customer no matter how small or big of an item or even just for advice, we started our business of with the intention of helping others in our free time, although it has become a full time job for us, our values remain the same as this is what we enjoy doing.
