I am hating on californi-ans just for the fact that every single company that sells bumpers are located IN california, saving them at least $100

Jake, I need you to reply on my valentine one thread, someone said you know "things"

If you're going to build the car more heavily and go with an aggressive setup (rims, drop, front lip, skirts, rear bumper, etc), go with the M3.

If you are going to stick with a clean and less modded car, go mtech2

I have m3 rims, not ready for a drop yet, no skirts, and rear bumper I might hold off on.
