Deep Sea Blue M sport front bumper

Hi,
I own an n55 e92 deep sea blue. Mine is not M-sport, but recently did the conversion on the front bumper and also installed m3 side skirts. Here are some pictures.

My plan was to get ARC-8s in 18". At the moment a friend of mine offered me his ARC-8 17's for $1100 wrapped with Michelin pilot super sports that were only used for 2 days. The wheels themselves were not curb rashed or cracked they were literally new. It was too good of a deal to pass on, considering that a new set of ARC-8 18s with michelins is 2,170$ + $676 shipping to Puerto Rico. They ended up looking great and very good for the potholes and bumpy roads of PR.

the profile 3 concave look helps a ton too!

I bet the 19s you had before didn't like the potholes!

Bought the side skirts on Ebay. I had 0 fitment issues with them. Just make sure that you buy the m3 look skirts for non-M e92, because the original m3 ones will not fit.

How's the gap inside the door sill? Did you install them yourself?
