Nice bumper. That's the LCI on Pre-LCI, correct? What parts are needed to make it fit?

I like the M3. Which one is better fit and quality...**********s or ModMy3? Any issues regarding oil cooler air flow? The **********s M3 bumper seems not to have the washer inserts - how does one handle that? Thanks!

Mtech for pre-lci looks terrible IMO.

But fitting lci on a pre-lci costs too much damn money.

M3 rep with fog delete does look great.

^^You think Mtech on pre-lci looks terrible? I don't get that??? What on an LCI helps the mtech vs. pre-LCI? It's just the bumper. I had pre-lci for the last 2 1/2 years. I just put the mtech on and it just transforms the car and makes it look more aggressive and MUCH more beautiful at the same time...and in a subtle way.

The M3 bumper (without fogs of course) is badass on any E9X. I think the fogs added just make it look cheap for some reason....just look out of place. But the mtech looks perfect on either..

I was actually referring to the pre-lci for the e90. The styling of the pre-lci is plain and too square. The lci is much more stylish and agressive looking IMO.

Any opinions on the DDM M3 rep? Best price I've found so far for one but no reviews.

Be careful dealing with this company. I didn't have the greatest experience with them. I bought what I thought was a m-tech rear wing because that's what the picture showed but it's labeled as a m3 wing right. Well my mistake cause I was new and didn't know the difference but if you go look at the pic it's a mtech wing. Anyway they are not the nicest people and the sent me multiple emails from different customer service reps telling me different things. The order shipped oh it didn't ship cause you didn't pay, How did you pay for your order. All in the span of a few days.

So not telling you what to do just be careful cause they don't seem like they know what they are doing. I did buy some hid's from them and had no problem with that order when I had a honda. Anyway good luck!

Edit: Go put that m3 rep in your cart at ddm then checkout and put your zip for a shipping quote it says free shipping....lol But the price goes to 450????? What the heck? This happened to me too with the wing and next thing you know they call me saying you owe for shipping. This may happen to you too. Let us know please cause I want to see if they are up to the same games of if I am mistaken.

Thanks for the info, but when selecting to add it to cart it says "add shipping +$110" :shrug:

I may see if I can have a friend bring it up from SD to me if anyone is passing thru.

Anyone have a pic of the MTech/MSport/Aero front, with painted splitters? CF doesn't do it for me.

MTech/Aero/MSport is OEM, made by/for BMW. You buy it through a dealership.

Evan at Tischer seems to be a popular option, though Longtran might still be selling these (maybe cheaper for Left-Coasters).

M3 rep for sure. M-tech fronts are too common.

I'm going to hijack this thread for a friend of mine. He's been looking for a pre-lci m3 front bumper replica. It seems that you have alot of manufacturers in states that make them. What would be the best option? Note that he would like to order the one that has xenon washer holes and it has to be shipped to EU .

Thanks.
