Introduction/Front Bumper ?

Hell all.

I have a 2006 330i. 21 years old. Work at Uhaul and am a firefighter also. Recently purchased into the BMW world about two months ago. I have done tons of browsing and finally decided to make a post.

Just purchased the Avant Garde M359 wheels.










My question is about the front bumper. Of course after purchase, Girlfriend wanted to drive the car. Which only made sense to allow her to drive. Stopped to get something to eat....and the only thing the car ate was a parking block. How can one fix this issue?

besides repainting it, maybe youll be interested in the MMW full coverage bottom lip or OEM pre-lci splitters. Both will cover up any rash

As the guy above said, you can get these splitters

Or

There are many front lip possibilities not just those two.

Nice car and the color fits your firefighter job too. You should lower it, that's one solution to cover the marks on the bumper. If it is low one can see the scratches, because even at that picture those are not very visible.Also buy black line taillights.

One more thing. Your rear tyres are rotating wrong way. You need to switch driver side rear tyre to passenger side and vice versa.

I am so glad you said something about tires!!!! That was in the back of my head, but when I put wheels on I was just too excited haha.

Blacklines are in the line up for mods.

I would prefer not to lower car. Will car look weird with splitters and no lowering kit?

I don't want that you ruin your new tyres and only noticed it, because i have same tyres on my summer wheels. No i don't think it looks weird with splitters without lowering. I just think that it will look little bit better even with small drop, but it's your decision.It looks good already. Also de-badge it.

Yep, going to be debadging this weekend along with ordering blacklines and tint next week. If I were to go with a small drop what do you recommend?



Tires changed!

I have H&R lowering springs -35mm front and -20mm rear. I guess its the same as H&R sport.

I think Eibach springs lowering is little bit less than H&R.

Of course most here would recommend coilovers, but for small drop springs work fine and you can get better shocks with lowering springs. I still have stock shocks with my springs.I have driven like that at least 20 000km, No problems so far. When my shocks are done, then i will upgrade to something better.

Maybe you should darken backlights? Are you considering this?
