Smile E90 LCI with M3 front bumper

Hi guys,

I wanted something different, and decided on this ebay M3 bumper over the M-tech or performance aero kit. You guys would be surprised to know that the installation was perfect. No modifications done at all, except for the engine shield, which had to be zip tied to the front bumper, as the M3 bumper protrudes more.

I went with the fog lights, as they are actually really useful during the winter months, and i liked the idea that they could be easily replaced with the M3 air ducts later on.

Only picture i have right now. Will try and take more tomorrow or the weekend. Feel free to ask questions if you have any.

9/10. Tints, gloss/matte black grilles, m3 mirrors will elevate it to near perfection.

veryyyyyy nice flows really well with your silver CH's and btw IMO i think you should go for gloss black grills so that it will match your gloss black mirror covers

Awesome. Now black out the grills to compliment the aggressiveness of the bumper.
