Lip or splitters for non-sport E46 facelift

My friend just picked up an 2003 E46 328xi and is looking to do some cosmetic mods. I am an active member on E90post.com but I haven't been on the this forum in ages.

Can you post some pictures of lips or splitters for this bumper:



Not sure if there are any...I tried searching google and this forum...no luck.

He's also looking to pick up a set of wheels/tires fro around $1000.

Thanks in advanced!

You mean 325? I think there's only one lip for the stock facelift sedan bumper.

lip is going to cost $200-$300 better off going with a whole new bumper for the same price. Mtech2 ftw

Maybe (hopefully) it is just the picture, but everything else on your car looks matte black, while that lip is shiny gloss black. Not sure it matches the rest of the car, man.

But that's just my opinion. If you like it then bravo!

I did photoshop it red but it looked even more out of place, since then its taken a lot of road abuse so its more of a flat black now, I've lowered it, put a carbon fiber lip spoiler on the trunk and tinted the windows its actually come together real well with my red/black theme

My Ride: '06 AW E90 330xi
Thanks guys. I appreciate all the feedback. It's not a great looking bumper to begin with....

I agree that getting a new bumper is the best choice. I just wanted to see if there was anything out there.

If anyone knows somebody in the NJ area that is selling an mtech 2 bumper (preferable AW), please contact me. My friend is also looking for a set of angel eyes (he has xenons which I thought came standard with AEs, Maybe that's just for E90), a decent set of wheels around 1000 (matte black CSLs a plus).

Basically he wants to copy my E90 lol.






If you guys could provide any suggestions to make my friends 325xi look similar to mine, it'd be much appreciated. I know people hate it when we ask question like this and responsed with search! But this isn't my car so I am not as dedicated to searching for parts. I'm sure he's doing alot of researching but I am trying to help him.

And yes it is a 325. My bad. My friend just got it. No wonder I pulled 3 car lengths on him lol. A 328 could possibly keep up with my E90 330xi....the thing weights like 3600 pounds and my trunk sub doesn't help lol.

Again, thanks in advanced.

I suggest that your friend sign up here and have a look himself, and create a car that has his own signature and not a hash up of his mate's car.

But from the looks of it, I would recommend:
matte CSL wheels
Mtech2 kit
shadowline trim - Get www.bmwshadowline.com or paint it
AE lights - P46 headlights. They come with Xenons and AEs
M3 mirrors - Look for someone parting out their M3 or some reps (which don't look as good but still acceptable)
Matte kidneys

Most can be obtained from the sponsors here. Good luck buddy!
