The CSL rep bumper looks a lot better on a pre-facelift car.

The ZHP bumper is what you should have done.

Your car needs to be lowered to pull off the aggressive look you're going for.

Grats on the mods.

Now start typing like an adult.

buddy crashed his ci before he got a chance to put these body parts on
so he sold them to me front bumper(brand ?) rear bumper(v-fiber m3 rep rear) and sides(hamann gtr) for 500 total so i never really picked out the pieces, though the csl bumper so far has got alot of wheres the other fog light hole lol
it is nice to just have a change though i agree it needs to be lowered but part of me wants to keep this just for winter and get a rwd for spring and summer driving
you think eibachs and konis will be enough if i do decide to?
also kicking around the idea of a csl trunk?
thanks for the feed back

Yeah eibachs will be plenty low. All you need is the look of a stock 330i and you will be lower than that.

Your car is already rice enough with the mods you do have on it, I wouldn't go for the CSL trunk until you do some other things like lower it, get nicer wheels, and get rid of those CF splitters in the front. Actually I just wouldn't go for the CSL trunk at all. You don't have a CSL, why fake it?

agree 100%

csl trunk would make the car look even worse than it already is with the mismatched parts
