E90 325xi | LCI M-Sport Front Conversion

So I wanted to give the car a a refreshed look and ended up getting attached to the way the LCI M-Sport looked. Did some research and found out how much work it would be to fit the bumper on, i.e. new hood, grills, finder liners, etc. Tried to find an easier way but I felt it was better to go OEM. So after debating if it was worth it, I decided to go for it, the legit way.

Here's a link to some pics I took: link

Let me know what you guys think. I've got a Performance rockers and a M-tech rear in my garage waiting to be put on.

Looks great! I feel only black and white pre-lci's e90's can rock the LCI msport front. I was thinking about it for a while and I don't think the msport would look aggressive enough on my sparkling graphite pre-lci e90. I'm going to go with m3 but man I think I'll have some regret after seeing yours.

Thanks guys. I'm really glad I went through with it. It's definitely not as hard as it seemed. I just winged the entire thing. took me 2.5 hours.

Headlights are product of Lightwerkz. Ceasar is amazing.

UPDATE 09/24/23

Some pics from this morning and just now after I installed the m-tech rear!

Kudos for sticking to the OEM way, it's the safest and has the best end result. Looks great.

Haha, I know right? I honestly hate the lci mirrors, too bulky. I'm thinking of getting a csl trunk and the f10 style lights.....:let the bashing commence:

Might want to consider the MARS LCI Style lights, expensive but great if you can find them used.

Those are the LCI lights in the pre-lci shape. I thought about those too. I honestly really want to try the the f10 lights. If they don't turn out good, then I suppose I'll either go with the mars or if I want a CSL trunk, I can just get the OEM LCI tails. Decisions, decisions........

I just wish there were some better pictures of the F10's on a car during the day, idk something about them just seems off.
