Kerscher vs M-Technik vs Rieger

What's everyone's opinion on these three kits for the front? I have heard pro's and cons on all of them. The Kerscher in some pics looks better, but then the Rieger looks better in others.

I'm looking to buy one Monday or Tues, so I'm just looking for insight. I haven't seen any in person, so I don't know other than the crapy angles that peeps take these pics at.

Thanks for the help.

Of those 3, I like the M-Tech one better. The one I really like is the Tornado one. =) I'm looking into kits myself.

I know M-tech is plastic...

and I think Hamann is fiberglass. Fiberglass sucks, if it cracks it shatters.

I like m-technic then the kersher, but not the rear unless you have quad pipes, then the rieger (looks too much like m3 to me)

Kerscher!!! I have it!

I had your problem too, but I chose the Kerscher because it's much more aggressive than M-technik and Rieger!

You can see many pictures at my site htttp://rossocorsa.bmw330ci.com

I just got off the phone with a dealer who carries all 3 aero kits and the kerscher I was told is made out of "fiber glass" which can get road chipped easily. Then again that one wasn't in stock but they do make it for the 4door E46 series. I was told my next best would be the Rieger kit and they also mention it's a lot better kit. I might go for Reiger, the complete kit with fogs and the new rear bumper which they just for, will run you close to 1500 for the full kit.
You can find out more about the kits bt going to, http://www.dtmautohaus.com/html/baerodynamics.html . Hope this helped.
