Oem-ish

Snapped a couple quick photos. Was bored. Only 3 I liked. Nothing special. Going to add either splitters or a 1 piece lip next week.

Looks clean, but the bumper in your sig looked better. Maybe get some smoked corners to contrast the car a bit

Add some splitters or a 1 piece lip and it's 1000X better. Lots of mixed views about the bumper but very surprising how the majority of people who like it are other M3 owners.

Negative. It's an OEM M3 Bumper.

Its different. Looks like its missing something though. I'm sure if you add that lip you have on your sig it would complete the look.

I feel like the car looks too "boxy" now. But it does look very clean. Looks odd, but still looks cool..... it has me confused. haha Can't wait to see it with a lip

I'm a fan.. Terrible photoshop but you get the idea, a lip would make it sexier.

Car looks great and white always is a favorite. Those are my favorite wheels.

small critique. i need the front to poke less or the rear to poke more. It looks like a front wheel drive civic drag car with the current look.

I love this bumper!! I have been wanting it for quite a while but it's so much $$$ though. Also i don't like the idea of disabling the fogs..

Edit: Your car is beautiful. A lip would set it off nicely and i wish you had the CSL bootlid with the exposed CF lip. Ohh and a gloss black roof!!

Personally, rears looks fine to me, maybe tuck the fronts in but beautiful regardless.
