MWDesign | OEM Performance e90 Front Bumper (NON LCI) - INSTALLED!

This was definitely a busy week for us with the e92 M3 DARTH MAUL build and also this OEM e90 Performance Front Bumper NON LCI version, confirmed first to be imported into North America.

The e90 also features M-Technik Side Skirts and Rear Bumper.

The customer was from out of town so we had these prepainted and customer dropped his car off for half a day, got the kit installed and left town with a new look.

More info/pricing on the bumper here - http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=237803

I can point out three things ...

1. The lines of the kit don't really show well on dark color cars!

2. This performance bumper has a very flat bottom so it looks really high (goes with reason 3)

3. Due to the fact that this bumper has a flat bottom, the car needs to be lower to the ground (needs a drop)

It would look bad ass if the car was lower

I agree with all the points, the car definitely needs a drop.

yeah, on LCI it woks cuz of the kidney openings being taller than on the bumper, but here they are same height, so visually it just doesnt work. I bet on lighter car, with black grilles it will look sick. Drop is necessary now.

Honestly, I think the m-tech look better for the pre-lci.

i think it looks great. very aggressive. i think it looks awkward now, because the opening is so big, but far off the ground. i think a drop will help a lot!

Cool
Matches The Mtech Rear, But Pre-lci Mtech Was Much Better With Spliters
U Can Put The Lip On This Performance Bumper.. But It Won't Do Enough...

Might Be Much Better With A Drop.. But Even When Looking At It From The Vid And So Forth.. Wasn't So Impressing

+1 I prefer the Mtech too. It's a shame, this had a lot of potential and works well on the E82 1-series.

I think it's because the bumper just looks so flat straight on, if anyone knows what I'm talking about. The part between the kidneys and the lower grille is just too stretched out
