Mixing body kit components. Opinions wanted :)

What do you guys think of mixing different styles for the front, sides and rears? I have an e90.

I want to go with an Mtech kit all around, but have come across some deals for an M3 front rep bumper. If I went this route, would it look off if I went with Mtech sides and rear w/diffusor?

I think it looks fine. My final plan is to have an LCI Msport front (Currently have one), M3 rep sides (shouldn't have sold mine), and either an Mtech rear or LCI non-mtech rear.

I like the mixed look. IMO for an e90 M3 Front and M-sport rear looks best, sides don't make much of a difference.

I've got an aero lip for the front, M3-rep skirts, and M-tech rear and love it.

That'll look fine because they're both clean, OEM styles

different parts makes your car unique rather than buying a whole body kit and being the same as everyone else that also has that same body kit.
