I mean if you really think about it, all you did was swap on a pre-lci e92 front end...its going to look just like an e92 stock front end...if you went with a m-sport or m3 bumper and m3 hood you would be looking 100x more aggressive and probably would like it more.

I have made up my mind, I'm picking up an e90 lci msport front or an e90 performance front bumper. I miss the e90 front too much.

Yes, but I am hesitant about throwing m3 parts on there when its not an m3.

No, it's going back on the car with the e90 front.

I dunno why the hate on E92 front. It didn't may be look as good because it was black and it was stock.

I think the one painted montego, and with M3 bumper instead of stock (or msport) would make a ton of difference. I'm not a fan of the E90 front as much as everyone else seems to be here.

exactly. lci msport on the e90 is damn near perfect. i think the e92 front end doesnt flow well with the e90 body.

Definitely e90 front looks better in this case. Not hating on the e92, but the front of it doesn't look good on your e90.

It WOULD have looked a lot better with a few mods and maybe slightly wider front fenders, but stock it looked ugly.

I don't think its hate, just personal preference. The e92 headlights are sleek and sexy, the e90 headlights are bulky and fat. But for some reason I just like them more!

Ahhh so tempting. What do you say e90 lci msport front or e90 performance front? I'm going for one.. Its official.

i guess that i'm partial to the E90 front end since i've got one but if you keep the E92 front end, you should get an M-Sport bumper + lip. maybe a more aggressive stance?

either way, props for trying it out man.

I didnt mean you should throw a bunch of m3 parts on there and pose as an m3...i just mean you put a fully stock pre lci e92 front end on...i have that front end presently and dont even like it lol...maybe with more aggressive parts it would look better (even though i still think it looks pretty cool)

-e92 headlights

Everything fits without any modification except the fenders. You gotta chop those fuckers up

Where you been Hooy!? lol Thanks a bunch man, but I changed back to the e90 front this morning. The e92 front on my car wasn't doing it for me, felt awkward. But on the bright side I placed an order for an lci performance front bumper today

Any a piece of the vinyl (headlight part) came off during a wash Still have a couple extra sets from you I'm going to slap on when I get the chance!!
