My Mtech front bumper with Akrym lip fit perfectly.

My rear Mtech style bumper was from JGMODS if I remember correctly. It fits fine and I bought a CF insert from Ebay and it also fit fine.

No issues with either of the products which I was happy about. I know the body shop and they said everything fit fine, no issues. Pics in my sig link.

Oh, my CF high kick rear spoiler I bought on ebay and painted it as I don't like unpainted carbon so high up on the car. It did not site 100% flush, but very close. 3M body tape took up the slightest gap and you would never know it was not OEM imo.

edit: https://jgmods.com/ <-- I bought it on the forums through a group buy on e90post.

I like the mtech with lip myself but have been holding out,I would really want a 1M front bumper,its too bad they are 1200 plus non painted.i still dont get why after all these years they cant just make a mold like the m3 rep and mtech,then the prices would be competitive.

Yeah it's a good look but the price is just cray cray. Especially as how much these cars have devalued. Get into a small crash and airbags deploy it is almost all over.

Like that bumper painted and installed is 1/3 the cost of a top mount equal length manifold single turbo N54 kit. Or 1/2 the cost of the speedtech bottom mount cast kit. I'm all for looks but the price is just insane.

Did you install it yourself or have a body shop.
The body shop down the street I know. They sprayed it so why not. If a clip breaks or there was a fitment issue they could fix it for me. It's small money imo to be able to show up and complain if there was a fitment issues etc. At least that is how I look at it. They also repackaged my old rear bumper in the packaging my new bumper came in which made it an easier resell.

Cosmetic mods on bmws are expensive imo. But everything fits that I bought.

I want to do m3 fenders with 355i decals and a hood but it's hard to justify the cost.

I've done and LCI hood and M3 style front bumper and side skirt - fenders are next on my list, but paint can add up. I got a good deal on the first stuff, but it was still over a grand just for paint. Fenders are $230, but paint will likely be double that cost.

ESM's prices have gone up tremendously. They used to have the E90 M3 LCI front bumper for around 369 and under 600 painted. Now it's 850 painted and 489 unpainted.

Plus, they only offer paint on the bumpers, not the fenders.

No hoods oh well. I asked them to quote me the water tank relocation for the m3 fenders. I am guessing I just buy one used at a yard and will be fine and for a 1/4 the price. We shall see. Thanks for the link.

Weird they are unwilling to paint fenders. Any idea why?

I'm not sure, I just noticed paint wasn't an option on them. I would think for an e90 perhaps they don't want to deal with metal. I had to get my LCI hood delivered (local company!) three times before they got me one that didn't have major dents or dings. E92 is plastic I think (maybe aftermarket are steel and that's why?)
