no i agree as well. dont understand the draw to make the m3 look like another, maybe lesser car. i could see the regular e90 trying to look like a m3 but in my opinion that is kinda douchey also. kinda like a ferrari body kit on a fierro.

Yeah, don't like it. It works on the 1M because it is a distraction to how ugly the rest of the car is. The M3 doesn't need it and don't look good with it IMO.

if you can see the driver side, the bumper isn't completely on, throwing the angle off. saw this in person and it looks flawless.

I guess I am douchy x 2 since this isn't M3. This is originally E90 335i converted to M3 body then now will be rocking 1M/M3 front bumper. Frankenstein.

I honestly don't think 1M is ugly at all. M3 & 1M are both very good looking performance vehicle. For a guy who couldn't afford M3, this was my ultimate solution and yes M3 is a beautiful beautiful car and I'm still dreaming of owning one someday

Thanks PAKMAN. Were you in So. Cal this weekend? I thought I saw someone that looked just like you. Anyways, That 's correct. Bumper was just put on to test fit front lip, it wasn't bolted up at all. Everyone who has seen it verified that LTBMW did an amazing job. Very OEM like finish.

creaminz, will LTBMW release this for the non-widebody e92 guys? or will it be only for e9X M3's?

Thanks,

First of all - I have always liked your car. The color, your choice in wheels, etc. Second of all - you most certainly could have afforded an M3 considering the money you have spent to modify your E90. You must be joking when making that statement

Yes & No. When I bought this car, I was serving tables, washing dishes, taking orders at the restaurant. I was making OK money as a restaurant manager but definitely wasn't enough to afford M3. I could have bought it maybe, put 0 down, pay $1500~$1800 a month but I'd had to eat instant noodles everyday I started modding slowly then my first major mod was the M3 rear quarter panel conversion...I loved it. For M3 folks, prolly makes you scratch your head but for a guy who dreamed of owning M3 but without enough money, this was closest I could get to. And things started to work better and I happend to become part owner of that restaurant which ended up ugly but during that 1~2 year I was making decent amount of money but still I couldn't ditch my E90 335i...let's say I was too emotionally attached to this car. First BMW, hard work, friends, ect. I still drool everytime I see M3 on the road, stock or modded but I do love my E90 and probably one of the most unique E90 335i in the world IMO. But yes hopefully one day...MMM

I am in the situation like you. Well, maybe not as good as you since I only got a 09 E90 335xi. I always like driving rwd cars and awd is too boring for me. This is a family car that my parents bought and I only have the "right" to drive it (please don't put a flame on it ) I always consider I am the lucky one who can drive a BMW at my age(21). My dad also got a E90 M3 in China as a family car that I can drive as well and all I can say is, if you want to have a fast car then mod the 335. If you want a dedicated track car then get a m3.

The car is basically the same as Creamiz's but minus the sport package. I have to earn money from part-time(well, 6 days a week of working). Then all of the money went into modding and the amount I spent on modding + the car's price would have got me a M3. However, I don't want to say to my parent's that I want to change the car... Then, the only thing I can do is to work my ass off to mod it and bring its max potential out. Now I am getting the RB turbos in and I think this is the final mod.

For those ppl who bash about "why making a 335 look like a m3, or at the end of the day, a 335 is a 335, a M3 is a M3?". There is something you won't understand unless you go into modding. In my understanding, modding will let me know about the car more and enhance the driving pleasure more and more. It's also a process of exploring the limit of the car. It will "somehow" enhance my driving skills and be safer on the road. For the choice of the look of the car, that would barely be the personal preference.

I have seen countless of people who owned the M3 only drives on the public road. It was such a waste in my mind. When some of the M3 was brought to the track it wasn't the man driving the car, it was the car driving the man (No offense to the M3 owners but just want to say different people have different situations and you can't really bash on anyone's decisions)
