aero kit for fugly M3 Sedan ?

I don't know why they made this crazy gaping hole under the car nose, the busy rear end lower bumper, and the hood vents... very ricerish.

simple question... is there an aero kit that can fix the lower air dam, remove the hood and get a nice rear lower spoiler? so that it is less of an affront to good taste. The M Aerodynamic kit on the e90 is gorgeous and properly teutonic.

You realize one of the holes in the hood is functional, right?

wow, you might as well just buy a plain jane RS4 or if you want more extreme, a C63.

And everything on the M is functional, front air dam-vent-rear diffuser. Which is basically the opposite of rice.

You could always buy the 335 body kit and have it installed. That way you would get all the M3 goodies but it would look like a 335. I don't agree with your assessment of the looks, but of course, it's all subjective. I'm sure there will be 335 owners that make their car look like M3s. All the cosmetic body work parts should be interchangable I would think.

the lines in the lower air dam and rear spoiler are hideous. compare to the m aerodynamic package, which is gorgeous. fire bangle already, he's done enough mischief.

that looks good and less like an overstyled pontiac (where bangle is from). if you can fit the m aero package to this car-- or something that looks like it, all would be all set, but I don't think it will work. Who was nice front/rear air dam/skirts that look properly german?

There are cars that can fix the M3 looks, as everything that you want to change in the M3 looks/parts is functional.

No... the front and rear fenders are wider in the M3 (surprise!), so no 3 Series bumpers will fit without custom bodywork.

The side skirts look to be the only interchangeable body parts between the M3 and respective 3 Series.

Nope. BMW is strictly prohibiting any cosmetic mods to the car.
