JWM5's pre-facelift twin....

Not much enthusiasm/response in my introduction showroom (*click*) so here a new topic about my major exterior update! I'm very proud of it and would really like to read your opinions! I was inspired by the touring of JWM5 and began searching for the same aeropackage....
We've installed an Eibach-Pro set to drop the touring and from the OEM aerodynamic package we installed the sideskirts and rear. I also decided to loose the M-lip on the trunk, the car doesn't need it anymore.
This is the result:

Before


After











Next update will probably be window tint

very nice touring. I'm not sure if I like the front spoiler. I would prefer an m-tech. but it's still very unique and good looking. the rims offset the TiAg nicely too.

Nice mods, you should think of changing the black grill in the front bumper to the titanium from the 330i - take a look at mine, it changes the complete front in my opinion.

Looks very nice. I would get the M-tech II front bumper now to match everything else. ANd I think the sideskirts would look better flipped around. They look backwards right now.

Like this you mean? (a friend of mine did a PS)



My rear add-on is even worse with the cover for the removable towhook.....

The skirts are absolutly not backwards, the low frontsection matches the frontlip nicely, if the lower section of the skirt is at the back it doesn't match with the line of the rear add-on like it is now

@Fozzy, I like the insert in the front of the 330i very much, when I find one I will absolutely change it.

^ yes sir that quad exhaust look is what I meant. Its like that rear lip spoiler was made for it... might be a project I undertake in the future, it would just be for show- non functional, but would really help to balance out the rear bumper...
