What do you guys think?

Hi Guys,

So im trying to decide between getting the ARKYM front lip or the Arkym front bumper. I live in NM so I dont get to see many modded M3's in person. Do you think its worth the extra $1600 bucks or so for the bumper or should I spend that somewhere else? Any other opinions are welcome

Thanks for the info.

We had bodyshop painted the front bumper to exposed the CF on the bottom. ARKYM Front Bumper comes in Full Carbon Finish only. We don't do paint though, sorry =(

We are also an authorized ARKYM dealer, and we have full access to a paint shop that utilizes OEM PPG approved paints.

Feel free to PM me for a detailed quote.

the OEM bumper already is appealing enough.. all it needs is just a little add on to make it more touch up on the car. the AKRYM bumper is just not so, well i say its ok... id rather get the Ericsson which is more aggressive. since you mentioned that not a lot of M3 being modded it seems like your looking for somewhat an aggressive stand... Ericsson IMO is the best bumper replacement for the M3 front bumper....

I really like the OEM Carbon Fiber splitters. Maybe it's just me, but I think they add just the right touch to the car. I have them and wouldn't trade them for anything.

Haha might be cause of the offsets? I also have spacers in the back so it looks pretty flush. Thank you
