+1 that thing looks pretty dangerous. Props for being a creative individual though. Fitment looks good, what brand are those?

There is a lot of mass on the lip but I'm going
To shave some weight of it maybe follow the shape
Of the bumper but I like how it looks now
Agressive, you should see my strut bar and intake

Hello, I have a 2000 BMW 328i and I'm looking to put an m3 style bumper on mine as well I was wondering if there were any extra parts you had to buy in order for it to properly fit ? Any advice or suggestions would be greatly appreciated

Oh ok I was told I would need pre facelift brackets do you think this is true. I was also informed I needed some extra parts to improve the airflow here is the part number 51717894699 if you can tell me if this is true or not would be really helpful. I'm looking to make sure I get it done right the first time. This is the bumper I'm looking to get can you let me know if it's similar to the one you did .http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00L4H..._1456078153644

I don't care for an M bumper on a sedan and that lip will probably rip off the bumper with a little time on the interstate. Why black wheels and extending past the fenders?
