It was a great article on these 3 cars in performance BMW magazine over the summer I believe.

Just goes to show you that even though its essentially the same car, the aftermarket community for these cars (and BMW brand) has allowed every owner to make them truly their own and in some regard one a kind.

What is the 1M conversion bumper made out of? CFRP or CF?
