M-Sport or M3 Rear and Front

I think your package looks great. In fact it does flow nicely together. Frankly I was looking at the front and rear as being independent entities, and you're probably right about the pairing problem. The M-Sport front end I looked at a few days ago just looked too busy for my taste compared to the M3 front bumper I saw; I think I may have come to the conclusion that the M3 rear wouldn't work on my car. But body work is as foreign to me as suspension and tuning was a month ago, so it'll come around. Fortunately it's not an urgent thing for me. A sleeper is more appropriate for a more senior guy anyway. The only thing that really feeds my ego is running away from people in the twisties. A drag race is fun but anybody can mash their foot on the pedal. Having said that, the torque monster won't let me alone anytime soon. Thanks for the pointers and ideas.
