m3 or msport kit for e90

which one do you prefer?

MSPORT - Like the sharp edges giving it a sporty look
m3 - Very sporty, love it but it seems a bit off to me for some reason

Convince me with pics to help me decide guys .

It's for a pre-LCI and i don't have the OEM kit as an option because i can't find it in Aus

get the m sport front bumper and rear. go oem because i can guarantee you that you will have fitment issues with aftermarket stuff. getbmwparts.com has the full kit on sale last i checked.

if you want a more agressive front then get a lip or cf splitters for the m sport front.

Msport kit do the LCI conversion instead. A lot cleaner and aggressive looking then PRE LCI

Change your mind ?

I have 0 fitment issues with my m3 rep, fits as well as the stock bumper did. And I agree, the LCI M sport looks boss. I don't like the pre LCI though.

the msport looks so much nicer. just take a look at DV's car..should quickly make you forget about getting an m3 bumper.

thanks for the help so far guys

I would really like to get the LCI M Sport bumper but doesn't that mean i have to change a whole bunch of other things to fit it?

As ndog said, there is too much going on in the LCI M Sport, and people are saying they've had no issues fitting the m3 bumper, so i'm still drifting towards the m3 bumper and M Sport rear

Buddy you need a drop bad. Lol


OP all you need is a new LCI which is much better looking anyway the msport bumper LCI and LCI grills.
