My M-Sport conversion

Have a pre-lci 335i, just finished adding new front and rear bumpers, pretty easy install and only minor modifications needed to fit properly. Here ya go!

Also, looking to do some sort of ducts in place of the fogs but haven't really seen it done on a lci m sport. Anyone attempted this?

Definitely the next thing on the list, just trying to find the time to tackle the PE mod, but thinking some 4" tips would look killer.

M-Sport bumpers totally transform these cars. Gave mine a new lease on life, too. Looks great! Planning on doing the LCI hood next?

It might actually be the very next thing I do haha. Unfortunately the car got caught out in a hail storm today and the car took some pretty big hits, so as long as it doesn't get totaled out a lci hood will be coming very soon!

And on a side note if anyone has any insight or tips for dealing with hail and insurance claims, I would love to hear them

Hey, What did you use to tint/cover the amber reflectors on the headlights? I'm going for the same look, tinted, rather than completely blacked out.

You shot me a PM on IG last week. Any update on how insurance is handling the claim?

I just found some precut vinyl overlays online, but if I'm honest I wish I went with the full black, up close the opacity looks kinda weird with the lines of the actual amber part lining up due it being inside the headlight if that makes sense.

I actually left for Europe the day after the Hail storm, so the car has just been sitting. So other than a few emails back and forth I'm not quite sure what's going to happen to it at the moment. Hoping to get someone to look at the car once I get back in town and will know more by the end of the week.
