I can't stand the rear bumper on that Aero Kit.

P.S.: The new E92 front bumper will not look like the front bumper that you see on the E92Kits.com car.

Why not mix and match? The aero front with M-kit rear and stock sides would be my favourite. The M-kit rear also has the continuation of the lower character line that runs from the front bumper, below doors and into the stock rear. That line is missing on the aero kit rear and official M-sport rear apron. I think the line really "makes" the profile shot.

^^Yep, IMO ... it looks good, but I personnaly would not put it on my car because it is the M5 front bumper. On the other hand, I would buy their rear bumper.

I liked ADHD's 335i; as he kept the orginal E90 front bumper + the M-Kit rear bumper.

Aero.
If you want the M, wait for the M.
The Aero is more subtle, but still aggressive enough, imo.
He was running 19's on the Aero too, so that also adds to the effect.

I like the M-kit.

Besides, the new M3 won't have the same look; so it's not like the two cars will be mistaken for one another.

No, the OEM m-sport looks similar to the one on the e90/91.

+1, I like the subtle look of the aero front, adds a bit of aggressiveness to the car without overdoing it

e93 Msport ordered-delivery in May

I have ordered an E93 Msport, arrives in May.
The Aero kit is maybe better than the Msport kit as far as the front in concerned, however the advantage of the Mpackage (not the aftermarket one from E92, the OEM one) is that the car is more expensive, but the kit is included, so the resale value will be probably higher.
And also you get M sideskirts, M steering wheel, M gearknob, M footrest, M doorsill, M suspension....

I love the OEM M-kit front, side, and rear. I hope they include these in a package (ZHP) in the future.

I've never been a fan of the OEM aero-kit or the M5-looking kits. If I had to choose from great to least favorite:

1. oem m-tech/sport kit (front,sides & rear)
2. oem aero kit (front & rear)
3. stock
4. m5-look

Does BMW EU also have the "M-Sport" option on e92? Anyone know when the M-Sport option is going to hit the US?

Don't know...if you're talking about the coupe, I belive it's the same body style as the 335i coupe. As for the kits...I agree with some of you...Aero all the way plus the M side skirts. More professional and clean looking...IMO.
