Internally some stuff dont fit perfectly like the oem bottom right and left intake and radiator air scoop, the middle one is fine. I will take a picture later.

Yikes... I wonder how much of an issue it will be for the intakes?

Yeah same here. Are you having oil temp issues? I am just waiting on autocouture to release so I can compare and purchase but I am glad to see this on alpine white as that is the color I own.

It looks absolutely stunning/aggressive/perfect. I've always thought the 1 M was the perfect mixture of mean and sexy that the M3 was starting to lose a bit of. Seeing cars like the C63, CTS-V, and 1 M have made me think the M3 needed a nip and tuck in the front to look meaner.

I'd buy this bumper in a heart beat, so long as it didn't affect my performance.

Temp and everything is just fine. I dont feel any power loss etc. No need to worry. The only thing that worry me aside from performance is the internals of the car isnt covered since the inside/black walls behind the bumper are cut.

This is asking a lot but could you maybe remove a wheel and show us what the back looks like. I know on the 1M there is a cutout in the wheel well. I would like to get an idea of how and where I would need to cut to go with the LTBMW solution.

I dont have the tools to lift and remove a wheel right now but when I do I will let you know. As far as I know my wheel wells are pushed back a bit because of the slek lip. The felt boxes are pushed back in order for the slek lip to use the oem screw areas of the 1m bumper.

That's...cool!!

Seriously, I looked at it for 30 seconds, and then made the decision I liked it. Looks OEM 100%. Great way to look different while remaining subtle.

Yeah! Greatest thing about it is it looks OEM. It looks OEM while being more aggressive.

So wait... right now there is no conduit to either the oil cooler or intake? Seems a little short sighted. I like the look of it, but it simply is not complete until it truly works with the existing hardware.

Seems to me that a really aggressive redirect might work, may have to split it between the side "fangs" and the main openings. Possibly converging then moving sharply to the cooler or intake. Depends what sort of clearance you have back there.

Yeup I am trying to find someone who can make custom internal panels for everything to work. The cooling for the oil cooler works and the intake works too just the panels are exposing some internal bits.

I am going to lower it with H&R Sport Springs asap when I find good prices.

I also remounted the trunk spoiler... it was loose and I could wiggle it up and down... Did i use enough tape? lol





Btw I modded the side gills a little so it is working... It is reversable if it is a bad idea. I posted it on cosmetics and it is pending answers.
