I agree, some aggression is needed - and a hybrid front bumper OEM meets wide e60 M5 type of look would be killer IMO

Duke Dynamics already made an e60 M5 bumper for the e92 before.. most people were not really a fan of it. Something like the F10 M5 would be better!

Not an exact look, as nothing is in the works yet, but keep the ideas going and maybe some renderings will come out

I say: go for the first ever GTRS3 (sedan) on their asses! and patent that shit asap! you'll make hella-bank! **obviously you'll have to differ from the Vorsteiner styling but i'm sure it can be done within good taste.**

This would require a massive 3" (1.5" each side) widebody and a facelift to shock and awe! ^__^

i dont know if it is possible, but if it could work with stock sized rear and front bumper that would be great.

I would get it if you got something for the rear wide body. Something like m3 wide would be great but cannot be out of place wide!

It has to be wider then M3, otherwise you could just slap the M3 panels on your car and call it a day. there is no "wow" factor to a stock width part, M3 or not - most people think they all look the same (not people like us, but normal people)

I've always wanted somebody to do this:
Make an M3 based wide body for the E9x, both coupe and sedan. Have M3 fenders, but with the gills filled in(or make it optional), think like Creaminz. Widen mtech bumpers to fit, if possible have oem hood still fit. Supply oem M3 quarters as part of package or leave it to the customer.
This way, we can have clean looking widebodies, without having a single M3 design on it.
Total parts made:
Wide M-Tech front
Wide M-Tech rear
Wide M3 fenders, filled in gills
Maybe M-tech side skirts widened to sit with the fenders. But M3 ss are a popular upgrade already.
All the above parts could be produced out of polyurethane like the oem panels, hopefully direct bolt on.

why not just by M-tech parts and just have the fenders rolled out really far? this would save mega $$$

Can't roll the fronts, they're polyurethane. And it wouldn't look as clean. Picture an M3, but with an Mtech style bumper, it's almost E46 M3ish. And I think the mtech rear looks better than an M3 rear

you can heat up the polyurethane parts to rolls them as well, i've seen this done before... the paint doesn't always hold up though (may crack and peel off). It's still a bigger money saver than getting a whole body kit painted... sort of..

Yeah, that's drive me nuts. But I just don't think pulling fenders would satisfy me like a clean change of body panels, plus it's reversible. Look how clean Creaminz car came out, granted there is more money in that car than I'd like to think about, but if people can swap bumpers, hoods, etc, they can do fenders. Quarters is a little harder, but there's no actual cutting, etc. In a way, still a bolt on. If these parts could be made reasonably cheaply(for what you're getting) I think there would be a customer base. Plus, lower development costs as parts are based on slightly modified OEM parts.

don't think that can happen if you want it to flow right. if you want to go wider, the rear bumper will need to be custom'd wider
