M3 rep front bumper or Mtech front bumper.... options, options

So I've decided that the Mtech rear is the style that fits me best. I will also be adding Mtech side skirts. I have and e90 in TiAg.

Now I need your opinions on the Front bumper. Should I go with an M-tech front. And if so which lip (I'm thinking a 3D lip)?

Or should I go with an M3 Rep bumper or w/o lip (I'm looking at an ACS CF lip made for M3 rep).

Please give me your input. Thanks!

I would definitely recommend going with the replica M3 style front bumper for that aggressive look.

I have a TiAg e90 with the m3 rep bumper. Wouldn't go any other route. Next step is to get the lip from jl motoring to complete the look.

sweet, any chance you already have some up close pics you can forward my way? (rayguy24 at gmail dot com). Also, did you do fog delete or did you keep em on? Since Jlevi put up a nice pic with fogs, I would like to see one upclose w/o fogs. Still in the midst of searching pics in TiAg as well.

Thanks!

My profile pic on here shows the m3 rep on the front. Don't have any other really good shots yet as I've been pretty busy. I am planning on doing the fog delete although I'm still not entirely sure how to. I don't even have the fogs in....you can see in my pic that i have the bracket with no fogs. I think that the m3 rep lip from JL motoring will finish off the bumper perfectly.

here are some pics of another guys m3 rep bumper:

Neither, LCI update. Just the hood, bumper, and grills are needed, I believe. Seriously, the one piece grills look so much better than the split grill and hood ones.

Maybe its just me, but I actually prefer the pre-lci hood > LCI hood. Same with the grilles. Don't ask me why haha.

do you need to change hood and grill to get the LCI bumper to fit neatly?

To my knowledge, yes.

Mtech looks more aggressive than the M3 rep imho.
