OP all you need is a new LCI which is much better looking anyway the msport bumper LCI and LCI grills.

My only concern with m3 rep is... You don't drive an M3.

But the preLCI Msport is fugly and the LCI Msport is too aggressive. M3 bumper is contemporary, graceful, and strong.

Really? I really like the pre-LCI rears if nothing else because they have proper amber turn signals (personal pet peeve, why do they think that just because something is allowed in the US that it's a good idea? And while I'm ranting, why do I have to buy a new headlight switch just to get rear fogs when the wiring and bulbs are already there? I know that there's a lot of d-bags that run them 24/7 but the solution is education, not taking them away from us.)

I also like the pre-LCI front on my car, although I was a little disappointed to see that the "stretch metal" grilles down low are really just plastic... they look good though.

Maybe you're right. I don't know much about the Pre-LCI and LCI e90..

I don't really... 'hate', the pre-LCI rears, but it's just personal preference that i strongly prefer the LCI ones, they just have this better look to them, but once again it's just personal preference.

I do not understand what you mean by this "why do they think that just because something is allowed in the US that it's a good idea?"

All i want is the rear LCI lights, if there is wiring confusion, i'm sure it's not too hard to solve as many others have done it.

Also, i personally agree with the foglight rant, d-bag's for sure

edit;



i just really like that look, especially with AW and my e90's AW

I just looked at your location so I realize now that you have no idea what I'm talking about... in the US, at least for the E92, the pre-LCI rears have amber turn signals (but only the parking lights are LED) while the LCI rears are LED but both brake lights and turn signals are red. If you're in Sydney I assume that means that you have the ECE version of LCIs there so my functional objections to them go away as I believe you are required to have amber rear turn signals, period. Here in the US we are not, and many German and Japanese mfgrs. make US-specific versions of their taillights with all-red lenses, because I guess they think that it looks better. Personally I prefer function over form, and it's not hard to make a good looking light with amber turn signals (usually by using a clear lens with an amber bulb.)

no worries mate, agreed functional > look ; because it's lights we're talking about which are primarily made for road communication

No worries bro it;s all personal pref. I would not put the m3 bumper on just cause it doesn't look right IMO. But that's just MY OPINION

M3 Rep is a better choice...but...but in order to define it's aggressiveness, your car must have a flushed & lowered wheels. Get the one with air duct instead of fog lights.
