Body Kit

I have a lci 323i e90 (space gray) and would like to upgrade my body kit. I'm still confused as to whether I should go with the M3 replica for e90 or the Mtech/MSport . I'm new to modding and open for any suggestions...

As for the MSport I like sporty look from the sharp edges. Where as, I also like the very sporty look of the M3 style, but not sure if it would look good on my car.

which one do you prefer?

It's personal preference mate, choose the one the best pleases YOU.

That's all that matters.

TBH there is very very little difference between the Msport and M body kits. I have heard peeps having trouble with the replica m kits

Champ it just depends on the look you want... the M3 is more aggressive.. both are great... check out Elmos 335 and Moes 335 you can see exactly how both look.

Both awesome looking 335s but i don't agree on doing the same to a 323i or my 325i looks too mean for something that has considerably less power haha!

Just my two cents anyway..

Would an M3 style bumper look good with an Msport Rear? or would it look weird?

Still looks much better then a m3 rep rear on a non m!

Imo the m3 front with m3 sides mtech rear with a duke dynamics diffuser is a killer package

I don't like aftermarket M3 fronts, especially on E90s. Obviously biased here, but for an E90 LCI go with the Msport kit..

..and a front lip or some splitters if you want as well

You can get full front lips, or just carbon splitters for the sides. There are a few options out there.
