Just installed M3 Bumper

Hey. I just got around to installing an M3 replica bumper from modmy3 on my e90! Overall I am very happy with how it turned out. It took me about 2.5 hours overall to do it. Fitment is perfect. Just like OEM.

Looks good have the same one, but still I feel like it is missing something(my car also is same color/bumper/pre-LCI/etc). After staring at my bumper for hours I believe the amber on the headlights is throwing the look off; at least in my opinion.

Yeah. I hate the amber. Unfortunately there doesnt seem to be an easy fix unless you are gonna spend a ton of money. I tried the amber gones and thought they looked kind of cheap.

Looks great! I just did this recently, only thing that disappointed me were the projector fogs. The passenger ones cutoff line is off, tried adjusting it with no luck (guessing its the cheap projectors).

I just ordered 5800k bulbs for it. We will see if that helps it at all.

Post a pic when ya get them in. I ended up putting some Nokya 9006 yellow bulbs in there, and it looks good when looking dead on from the front and does have a decent output. Just the uneven cutoff line kills me, has to be the cheap glass.

For reference here is the post I made about it:
