Covering the M badge :)

here are some rough pics of my e92 with M3 front bumper/fenders/skirts using matte black vinyl to cover the chrome housing of the turn signals and gloss vinyl to cover the ///M badge since my car is not an M3.

We will be releasing carbon fiber versions of these, wrapped over the OEM housing to ensure perfect fit and finish in about 2-3 months

If there was an option where it was all cf, with the blinker, no chrome, and no 3. I would purchase a set of these, I think they look killer.

Looks great Brandon!

^^^ covering the M b/c many people do not like---actually, they straight out hate on people that place M-badges on non-M cars.
