New Hamann M3 front bumper feature LED's

They released another spoiler. Two led's, openings for front pdc and headlight cleaning system. Perhaps the led's are too Audi, but thought I'd share anyway.

Hmm, not too bad. Looks like a 335 front spoiler with the tabs at the bottom. LEDs are nice but it looks like it cuts down the opening of the front air dams.

Ah it's you again
It's intended for people who want to modify their M3. It's somewhat funny that you always read these threads on mods, but then always conclude you want a stock M

Don't like it. Looks like a rip off the R8.

Talking Thanks for the pic

I am a big Hamann fan but I like the other spoiler better and I plan to stick with it.

Hmmm... not bad actually. IMO, the splitters would look better in CF trim. Btw, does the openings below the LED have any aerodynamic purpose?

I actually think it is one of the best front bumper I have seen for the M3. I bet it you filled in the little holes under the LEDS it would look a lot better

I like it, LEDs seem to be well integrated. I wounder however if it cuts down too much on the air dams.

Not a fan of the Audi trademark LEDs but the lines are gorgeous.

A little Bling Bling for me. Looks like a pimps diamond bracelet. A light set up like the new porsche would've looked nicer. Like the front PDC. It's OK just not quite right.

The leds are too rectangular. It needs some rounder corners

Gross... I actually like the bumper, just not the LEDs. The bumpers not a bad design imo. First those stupid orion angle eyes came out, and now hamann with this. I'm sick of the audi-wannabe crap

Then don't install the led's. I think the shape is pretty good, could almost be oem.

LEDs are taaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaacky! I hate the damn things. Everytime I see a sodding A5 I want to chase him down and rip them off. It's like driving a blinged up Christmas Tree around for Christs sake.

Until recently they were only seen on pile of sh*t Citroen Saxo 1 litres tarted up by some chav git in a tracksuit and now Audi think they are cool. Muppets. What next, manufaturers adding those daft arsed blue LEDs on the squirty jets or under car lighting? Urgh.

LEDs are going to become the new neon, already tired of them. BMW scored with angel eyes, others are now also trying to get distinctive, branded lighting features so their marque has more identity at night. It just looks so stuck on in this application, not relating to anything else. The bumper looks really good otherwise.
