i'm looking into the M3 rep as well, but not just for aesthetics, but more of a cosmetic fix... i have so many nicks and dings in my front bumper from 70k miles of highway usage so i think an M3 rep would be a nice upgrade.

^I'm in the same boat. My OEM bumper has taken a beating and has 2 holes in it from the license plate. Just picked up a M3 rep bumper, can't wait to paint it and put it on. Another positive for the 335 folk is the M3 bumper exposes the intercooler a bit more as well, makes for better airflow.

/\ Yup me too, my front bumper was dinged up cause my car was an up north car. So instead of paying to have it repaired I am just upgrading to an m3 front bumper. The best price looks like from modmy3. Let me know if you guys find a better price or better purchasing experience. Thanks

Ebay has them cheap as well and the material is polyproylene. I think I saw some for $400 shipped (no foglights). I'm about to order one right now.

So I went with m3 front with projection fogs and rear m tech for the back , after tons of research I think that's the best combination you could go with , I got 1500 from the third party for my damages and this upgrade will cost me 1900 , so I guess that's not bad. I'll post pictures as soon as I get it done , next I have to drop the car, uhhhhh this never ends lol

Yeah I think I saw that on ebay but I think I want with foglights. With foglights the price is comparable to modmy3 so I will have to look a bit closer to what ebay has when the time comes. I'm just a little worried about ebay's fitment. I wonder if I will run into any fitment issues. Has anybody had any experience with ebay bumbers?

nothing wrong about having an M3 front, just as long you don't slap on an M3 badge claiming that it's a M328XI4X4

Looks good now all you need is the 335 exhaust setup and it will look so much better trust me. But no matter what there's always someone who will criticize. I put pics up of my stock rear to mtech rear 335 and got called a poser by someone on here! Haha!!!!!!
