LCI is the newer revised E9X, the headlights have a little clear eyebrow on E92 and have LED pure red taillights. If you have Pre-LCI E92 than that LCI bumper won't fit unless you upgrade your headlihhts to LCI. Pre-LCI are from 06-08 and early 09-13 have LCI, I think. Search it up, you'll see the difference.

It wouldn't fit your car without buying the headlights like James said. Welcome to the BMW world hit me up any time you have any questions, always happy to help other enthusiasts

We got there way late.

Something like what you guys have on the dash, standard oil temp. I like analog vs digital and just hook it up to the obdport. Peace of mind to know my car isn't overheating.
Can't wait for some childhood nostalgia!

I think JDane07 is up there in Napa but it's just tips -- most shops should be able to weld it without any problems.

I have VMR V710 for sale. $400 picked up without tires. Condition is probably 6.5/10 but the scratches and nicks can be easily redone.

Volk ce28 powdercoated in mag blue $2300obo w/tires or $2000 obo w/o.

Both in 19x8.5/9.5; +25/22 and +35/35 respectively.

Will look nice on your car. What finish are you thinking? Standard or something different? Also your JB4 should get to you in a couple of days.

Ya that's what I figured but I'm a worrier when it comes to mods. Always feel more comfortable when someone knows a BMW doing the work even though its just the tips.

Haha. No worries.

If you like analog, you can just buy a stack gauge and hook it up.

You have one in mind? I remember seeing Blurple's gauges in the trim but don't remember what they were.

Just take it to a shop with decent ratings on Yelp and just make sure the tips are even or where you want it before you give him the green light to weld. If you wander into SJ I'm sure myself and others can list a few reputable shops.
