SE to Msport bodykit or something else?

Looking for some ideas to change the SE visually. Already decided on the wheels which will be CVR102 or something very similar. Will drop it with Eibachs so now its just bumper/ sideskirt enhancements.

Ordered a M3 boot lip but looking at either adding to the current bumpers or replacing them with proper M Sport bits.

Any decent sites to look at for this stuff?

As you can see the car looks pretty dull and looks like it is on stilts at the moment!



So any suggestions or tips on what you have done would be welcome.

here's my 2pence worth, everyone has different opinions on this but mine would be:

1. de-chrome the window trim/ change front grills
2. I like the front lip options for the SE bumper (check Mstyle for a rough idea)
3. M3 or BMW performance side skirts.


Your already doing the wheels, i think with them 3 mods mentioned above your car will be transformed.

I would change the rear bumper to m sport as they have a few good diffuser options.


But my taste might not been the same as yours but thats prob how i would start

Didnt even think about de-chroming! Will now look into that also. I assume you can buy the surrounds to do that?

Your tastes are spot on mate! Pretty much exactly what I am looking to do.

What wheels are those mate? I for some reason presumed yours was an E92 SE 335 which would come with sport suspension standard and with the 19's actually looks very good stock.

As its an E90 SE I would stick the Sport suspension on and maybe stick some 19" first before a body kit.

What about picking up a used Msport kit?

I think they are expensive, personally i would get it painted by a paint shop, this is what i did with the missis car and it is spot on.

Looking forward to seeing what you do to your car mate
