They originate from Taiwan, made from the Amuse M3 original bumper then modified for E92 non-M, then produced in mass. Fitment is good.

indeed, unless you change to RB turbos...?? I have a BNR34 for weekends drive and the difference in the twin turbos is way too significant...

And yes, Akra stuff are amazingly nice to look at. My friend's running the same evolution on his 335i and his whole midpipes and tailpipes have turned into titanium blue!

IMO the M-Tech front looks amazing with those CF splitters but since your rocking those beautiful M3 mirrors my vote goes for the 1M bumper good luck on the new bumper and i cant wait to see the finished look!

Yes, but for an unknown reason the Mtech carries very well for white E92, for darker ones its just like a OEM bumper... even with the CF splitters. It looks totally different when on a AW E92 though!

Yup; once its ready will send my car for spraying into space grey.

I have Agency Power downpipes which look similar to your downpipes pictured here. I am running a stock exhaust with my downpipes and it sounds like an E46 M3 but a little richer. I don't want a very loud car so I most likely will never get a new exhaust system.

Yours will be much louder since you have an after market exhaust system but shouldn't be too bad.

The Mtech and 1M bumpers look awesome, the Amuse is too busy for stock fenders IMO. And the quality of those downpipes....wow.

the evo right now sounds a bit like the PE, im expecting with the akra d/ps it wont be increase that loud, thats why i stayed away from AA or AR d/ps. will post a clip when done!

the amuse looks more aggressive; whereas the mtech is more subtle. And m3 styles fenders already on the way, waiting for thr bumper to be sprayed together, at the meantime wrapping the chrome part with CF and changing the M3 label

I feel like everyone is going for the m1 or m3 look so I would say just do mtech i've always thought it looked clean. if your going for a more aggressive look than I would say m1.

Yea, now M-tech has overtaken the amuse in the poll! hahaa. Mtech's not for me, too soft looking with the centre 'mouth' pointing downwards

yea, it looks nice and clean, but not to my preferred choice.. especially when the foglamps are taken out.

its quite popular here, especially with the non-LCI E92s. It adds a hint of JDM in the bimmers. In fact this has over sold the M3 rep bumpers here.

Other cosmectic upgrades:

M3-rep fenders with CF overlay side markers
CF blue emblems
