M3 front, mtech rear and Karbonwerke before and after

Finally got my M3 front, mtech rear and Karbonwerke CSL trunk
Painted and installed at LTMW. Picked up a carbon fiber front lip as well. I love the car now. It looks 10x better. Now I just need some new rims.

I'm guessing it's the made in Taiwan bumpers. Most of the local shops order from the same source.

Curious how much LTMW charges for paint work though. OP any insight on prices?

The bumper front is $425 unpainted, rear $460. Paint and install was $300 a piece.

Wow they ripped you off. You could have got the front bumper, install, and paint for $500 or less with better quality paint. The rear is about the same at ABS Autobody and Paint in El Monte.

It is what it is. I took the easy way out since I read good things about LTMW. I didn't bother shopping around and have never heard of ABS. No biggy.

I see what you're saying. Everything looked ok to me. I'll have to go look again, specifically at that area.
