Tough choice but I suggest going with the M3 bumper for your car as you have the M3 theme so far. It's a more aggressive look but I think you can pull it off if you keep the aggressive look.

We have a couple of options that would work:

Tuner Style E46 M3 Bumper w/ Molded Fogs


OE Style E46 M3 Front Bumper
