Review: Impressive AutoWerk (NY) & ModMy3

Not great at writing reviews but going to share my experience with both of the mentioned. I'm very happy with the results. I was pretty hesitant at first on where to order from, as well as getting it installed/painted but now I know where to go to in the future.

Purchased:
Mtech e90 Rear Bumper, dual exhaust diffuser (ModMy3)
M3 Side Skirts (forum member, bought it from **********s)

Comments about ModMy3:
Customer Service/Contact: A++, Marie answered my questions promptly & was very courteous, patient with me throughout all our PMs because the main concern for me was fitment. She never once pressured me into rushing to a decision. Marie, I appreciate the time you spent on my order & receiving your call to ensure the packaged was attentioned to John @ Impressive.
Fitment: 10/10, there were no issues with anything. I didn't need any additional guides.
Shipment & Condition: Very quick, packaged securely, flawless condition.

Comments about Impressive:
Paint: Top notch, did it while they had their promotion. This was the main reason why I pulled the trigger because I knew painting the bumper would be costly. So why not get it painted & installed in one shot.
Installation of rear bumper: No issues. Old bumper off, new bumper on. Fitment was spot on. John was impressed with that too.
Installation of M3 side skirts: This was no walk in the park. The fitment was horrible. Impressive was the 2nd shop I went to & by this point I told John, to try whatever it took to get it put on. So they had to shave/trim, as well as secure it better to keep it intact.

Overall Experience: POSITIVE

what would you suggest getting lowered with, I don't think I can dish out the money for coilovers. my car isn't sport package, do you think OEM sport suspension would help any? which meet do you go to?

Thank you SO much for the fabulous review and your car looks gorgeous!

OEM Sport suspension will only lower your car about 1/2". If you just want springs, H&R Sport are a nice upgrade and has a nice drop of about 1.2-1.3". They're still comfortable and handling is great!

I'm on H&R sport on an xi, and it's not bad at all.
There are a bunch going on, if you can stand hundreds of notifications a day along with some trolling, search "Official e90post Tri-State & PA Chat Thread" on Facebook. There's always something going on.

^Agreed, the sport suspension is will help a bit, but it's probably gonna end up with you wanting a little more drop.

Great review. But you got fooled im afraid.... these are some m3 coupe sideskirts mended for e90! E90 m3 sideskirts look nothing like this. Google it! Why would any e90 owner pay money for them.... no offence. Just like e92 m3 rear bumper for e90 that vendors promote here, this is a decidddly half effort product (if replica was the goal of course!).

Great rear bumper, but sideskirts ruin it for me- they just dont flow well, look too busy and the crease ends like 3/4 through. On m3 or msport or stock, the crease goes preety much all the way along the car.

no offense taken. i had them laying around & instead of taking a lost, had them put on, whats done is done & at the end of the day i'm still happy with how my car looks. i'm not doing things to please others.

I know, it was not really meant at you directly, but I guess at these numerous factories in Asia (that's where 99% stuff comes from I think) that pump out these kits but don't go that little bit extra to make an E90 specific product. These skirts are different to what they previously made, older ones had the ridge going even shorter, almost not reaching mid of rear door. The rear bumper though is the worst. Every e90 I've seen with it ended up looking worse, even if it had quads.

yeah, its the risk taken with getting reps, definitely hit or miss with many items.
