Looks pretty trick. Bet with the wheel-barrow pipes on a 335 it would look the bollocks!

I'm thinking diffuser, lip spoiler and performance grills for mine...

EDIT: Which bit of the undertray did you have to trim?? I can't make it out in the pictures...

its the very upper edge of the under tray, you have to cut away about 20mm from edge as it sticks out to far to fit new diffuser on.

ok bit circled in pink had to be trimmed from edge of original undertray.....pic shows it after trimming in fact thing i trimmed bit more of after this pic as it still didnt fit on first attempt.

bit circled in blue is the new undertray that comes with kit..this bolts to original tray plus the underside of car and bottom of diffuser...

Nice one.

When I have some pennies I could be tempted to fit one of these to mine. Not sure what colour I'd have though, my motor is Black Sapphire.

Toxic you could go with the Carbon Fibre like Mega has, his looks really nice
- Edit: or not, as these would be available for only Touring/Saloon.

Love this Lee, looks perfect, really good job too with the paint.

This looks great on your car

Why did they not design it tho that the lines match the rear tow eye?

So is it easy to do for some one Ham fisted like my self (nick name is break it)

it is made to match up exactly with the lines of the swoosh grooves in original bumper you dont even notice tow cover in the light. if it matched lines on the tow cover it would weird and not follow through to lines on original bumper..which dont show up well in pic.. ill get better pics up with proper camera.
Its quite a fiddly job if you dont mind crawling about under the car for an hour, and cutting through bits of plastic lol.

Your right i never noticed the rear bumper lines before lol
they do line up

It just looks odd as your eye automatically looks at the tow cover (well mine did anyway)

just a rubbish pic from the crap iphone camera, looks great in the flesh very happy with it, makes the old rear diffuser look so bland and boring..in fact i better get the old painted one on ebay to sell

Hrm,

I can't decide if I like it or if it looks a bit "rice". I think my judgement may be clouded by the roof spoiler you have, which isn't really my thing.

You know something that looks ace on your car
when i saw it earlier on the silver one on another thread i never liked the look of it

So tempted
One last question
See the black parts
How easy would it be to take them off to get painted gloss black?
I know the centre section come with bumper but what about other black parts you see?

ah thank you.
well the centre section just unscrews and slide out...so thats easy to get painted and when you say the black parts..do u mean the little black gaps eaither side they are simply stickers look back on earlier pics u notice i had not stuck them on yet..they have a matt textured feel to them so they look the same as the envelope slot running through middle of bumper..does that make any sense..tell me if not?

the centre envelope slot through middle of bumper is part of the original main bumper so u could get paint shop to mask it off and spray that section if you wanted to and then leave off the two black stickers either side..although i think the contrast helps break up the bumper a bit..but i guess its all paintable

Define "proper"...

I think the M3 lip is the best one, the aero-spoiler and the performance one look gash IMO.

M3 lip is just right, not too in your face.
