Tough crowd..lol. Its not permanent, was just to try something different, and show it could be done. Won't know unless you try, right? Im sure plenty of people were wondering what it would look like if done, so I did it. Whether it's liked, or not.

Tough crowd indeed, man. I've made up my mind about my liking. I think it's just too much activity on the front end compared to the rest of the car. Phew, finally I could put my finger on it.

execution looks top notch. paint is great. bumper looks cool head on, but overall appears too "heavy" for the rest of the car... IMO

the bumper is great, however I dont think it matches the e46 lines to well. The bumper just seems much sleeker with less edges and what not like the e46 body has. props on the work though

it would look better if it had a lip that made the front end flow a little better. crappy photoshoot idea:

I don't think it flows with the body lines. A hartge or csl one piece would look so good on this. Love the paint color though was actually thinking of painting my car that color too but went another color.

We tried the Slek lip, and ends don't line up, and I don't want to chop up a $1300 lip, so I may try this one.



My plan was to do the Hartge front end, but the only one i sourced took to long for the guy to decide to sell. If i find another one, that's what ill be going with.
