Nice. Not a huge fan of the look of the bumper, but I like the rest! Any perceivable performance gains from what you did? More pics? Interior?

Thank you. Naw not really I'm pretty sure I have at most 20hp gains but mostly sound is what I got out of the performance mods. I will be posting more pictures later

Front bumper is a bit much for me especially given the power is not there to back it up. Looks nice. Best of luck.

Would look 10x better without that lip, or with one that actually fit. And you should do the three stage manifold and tune, get some power to back up the look.

I think it looking amazing. The 1M bumper really makes the car stand out. Can you post some more pics? I'm thinking out getting my car plastidipped too.

Can you explain what the 3 stage manifold is I heard about but never really looked into it.

It basically turns your car into a 330i

dafuq? What does an aftermarket bumper have to do with HP gains? So you're only allowed 'aggressive' looks if you have the HP to back it up?

It's called rice. You make your car look fast but have nothing to back it up. This is not a new thing...

People can do whatever they want. I just gave my opinion. You post pictures of your car on the Internet, you get people's opinions.

I'm sure some people think my car is rice and that I don't have the mods to back up the cosmetics.

Edit: to put things in perspective for you it has the front bumper of an m4, an aggressive look for a performance orientated car. Unlike the m4 what is being his grill is an n52(I assume). Does that make more sense why I wrote what I wrote? It's like putting a gt350r front on a auto v6 stang. Nothing wrong with it but it is misleading.

If you want more power, I would've recommended the AA tune. Shit, they're right there in Miami!

Of course you have to set your expectations, as there's not much left on the table to wring out of an NA N52 engine, but it's a pretty nice upgrade, with dyno results you can measure.

Yea I was thinking about that but I don't know if it's worth dropping a good 400$ on a 328 tune for like 10 hp 335 that's def worth it

Get yourself a 3 stage manifold for 250 from car-part.com, get the AA or BPC tune, enjoy your extra 30hp.
