torn about next mods

So as christmas approaches I am finding myself thinking about the next things I will do. I am going to focus of cosmetics this year and for sure want to get new skirts and a rear bumper.

I currently have a m3 front and was thinking about getting the m3 skirts, but I'm afraid it will look too "m3-ish" if you know what I mean. As if this is not bugging me enough I cannot decide whether I want a m tech or m3 rear.

Would it look tacky if I had a m3 front bumper, skirts, and rear bumper?

Would it look weird to have a m3 front and skirts and a m tech rear??

As you can see I have no idea what to do and need some opinions!
Thanks for your input!

m3 rear bumper is tacky.

M3 front and side is okay. mtech rear only.

CSL trunk would be nice. springs or coils would be nice also.

I have wanted a csl trunk for a long time. I can just never seem to find one when I have the money. Thats why I bought the performance lip spoiler to kinda fill in the look lack the naked trunk has imo.

Coils are definitely in my crosshairs, just don't really know if I need them since my car sits pretty well since I got my 19s.

But thanks for your opinion, I think you are right, just needed someone to agree with me I guess lol

It all really comes down to what you think looks good. I own an '06 325i and plan on going M3 style all the way around as I already have the front bumper cover and side skirts. Some would assume I'm attempting to pose, but that's not it, I just want a better looking 325. We all have different tastes and you just have to go for what pleases you and only you.

That is true. I think I will just go with a last minute decision and let fate choose lol. Would you mind posting a pic of your skirts ?

They're not installed yet. I'm waiting on my rear bumper cover first, then they'll all go on at once, hopefully come Spring or maybe even Summer next year. They look crazy nice though, very aggressive.

You only get to the tacky territory once you slap on that M3 badge. You're fine for now.

personally i think the m3 bumper belongs on an m3. I would go with mtech all around. But do what you like! in you case i would say get m3 side skirts and mtech rear bumper with either csl type trunk or carbon fiber trunk lip
