    Challenge E92/93 M3 carbon door panels

    During the construction of INDís Blue Max project car, we had the pleasure of installing Ericssonís carbon fiber front door panels. It was a treat just to see this extremely rare part in person, as there are less than a handful of sets worldwide! Unfortunately, the panels were quite difficult to install, and took over 30 hours to install with a perfect factory fit and finish! There were no provisions for mounting, no precut tabs or holes to transfer the OE trim pieces. Overall it was a very involved installation procedure that could have been fixed with some simple modifications to the design.

    Fortunately, Challenge Engineering was already working on a solution. The Challenge door panels combine unique character lines based on the OE BMW door panels. Challenge was able to communicate directly with INDís technician to learn from our experience, and used this knowledge to create a better, easier to work with door panel.

    The Challenge Engineering door panels feature complete mounting tabs, marked reliefs that allow for easy transfer of all factory hardware, and a factory-like fit and finish. These panels weigh in at 3.5lbs, which is half of the weight of the factory BMW door panels!

    They are gorgeous, simply beautiful. The main question is, how much $?

    C'mon sticky what's so special about it that it costs 4000 ? I understand a single turbo kit that's being engineered and take long time on testing and dyno and all that stuff, but this here isn't a rocket science, even though I don't like to count some1 elses money they're probably making 3500 profit, and since no one else makes them people will buy it because these are gorgeouss

    All I'm saying is that the alternative is much more expensive., someone else does make it but it is even more money.

    I'm not against you, I want these myself. Will I spent $4k? Probably not, and I tend to spend a lot on mods. They still are beautiful though and who wouldn't want them?

    True, I'm about to make a list of most wanted products for e92, make an exact copy and mass produce it in China at a good factory and rebrand it.

    I don't think there is a big market for a copy of a list of E92 products.

    You missed the joke, your post made it seem like you were copying a "list" and mass producing that, not actual parts. I get what you meant.

    They're gorgeous. But the price is steep. Yes, the alternatives are more expensive, but that's because Ericssons prices are ridiculous to begin with. 1K for each side woulda been more than reasonable IMO.
