Keep m3... I'd be down for a side m3 bumper but there is nothing out for e92 lci. I think I'm keeping my 1m bumper and doing something with my lip just so it's more aggressive.

I feel that the m6 bumper makes our smaller e92s look too heavy if that makes sense hahaha

i guess ill do the 1M conversion with this M3 bumper and figure out of someone will make a replica Shlek lip or however you spell it your right the M6 bumper will look too heavy and it will need to hang lower because of the wide openings. i dont think its worth paying soo much to find out later that it looks bad. looks good on photoshop but thats just photoshop

Yea dude go for the conversion. But it won't be complete without that Slek lip.

Or you could mold a vrs lip... Always liked that look. Google titan316 invades Miami.

You should have that tiny horizontal piece (each side) that holds the curtain to the outer bumper painted black.

That way it looks like the air curtains aren't attached. Can you photoshop that?

Different strokes I guess! Lol. If it were me I wouldn't hesitate to paint it black and hide the fact they are connected. But it'll look like amazing either way
