looks awesome. I do wish that you would not have edited the photos. Everything is blending too much to even see some of the pics well

No LCI meaning the LCI style lines down the center. i dont think it means its only for the LCI E90. Both E90 pre LCI and LCI are the same. the Pre LCI and LCI E92's are different. if im wrong someone correct me. i have to tell the owner of the company to change that info on the site.

Haha I think you got it backwards.

E92 pre lci and lci, hood doesnt matter. (coupe)
E90 pre lci and lci, hood matters. (sedan)

Correct me if I'm mistaken...pre-lci guys are pretty limited to hood options. either paint the mustache portion (upper) matte black or get the hideous m3 replica hoods. I HATE the bulge imo. Yes, it has to be done on a m3 because of engine location but not in a 335i.

EDIT- On the off chance I am wrong, do they do a FRP version?

Yes they do a FRP version as far as i know and Yes you are wrong, the E92 Pre LCI lights are shaped different than the new LCI so the hood is different around the grill/headlight area. And pre LCI guys are not limited to hood options, they make quite a few if you do a search.

Well most are m3 replica-seque for the e90 pre lci sedan.

I'll contact bimmerkit and ask if they can make a frp version of the lci hood for me....it looks sick!

I love the hood.

Pre-LCI e90 has the upper grilles attached the hood. From what I've seen, LCI grilles are one piece.

Please correct me if I am wrong. I went to Duke's website and it says LCI, nothing for pre-LCI
