LCI VS PRELCI: MTEC front bumper poll

I started with 4 bumpers
  • Performance has no fogs and and looks like a toothless old man
  • M3 is a bit poserish and i dont like the way it looks with fogs and fog delete... no i like my fogs.
  • PRE LCI is the least amount of work ie cheapest and looks clean, i just dont like the pucker-lip look too much but i think a lip spoiler can take care of that
  • LCI looks the freshest but also the most work, ill be busy most of the time these coming months and i dont know if i can take on the project.

Sigh... that being said let me know which one do guys like the most.

Performance front

PRE LCI

LCI

M3 REP

I like the way the PRE-LCI lines "flow" into each other.

That's not a wrap, they ended up making a full c/f version and FRP version (I have the FRP version and will be doing a real c/f overlay) and still come out cheaper vs buying the c/f version from the start

Tow hook flap? I don't follow (I'm going from LCI to LCI Msport and they appear to be in the same location albeit a different shape)

Only reason I'll go for LCI is for the new hood/bonnet. Love the 'V' shape...
I find the perf bumper is ugly & m3 rep... no thanks but perhaps a 1M rep...
Pre LCI with splitters is the best looking bumper in my opinion if u don't mind the hood.
I'm fighting the urge to do the LCI front conversion, I really want the LCI hood but as far as I know, you have to change the bumper/grills too.
As for the rear, I love the LCI tail lights, hate the pre-LCI.
