IBeast gets a facelift...........First Ericsson e90???

Got the IBeast fitted with an Ericsson front bumper. Many thanks to John at International Autobody.....paint match and install were flawless. Def recommend him if you are in the Bay Area. Thanks to MentholGuy for the referral Car looks so much more aggressive. Love it! also put an AA exhaust. The combo is turning heads everywhere I go. I've never seen an Ericsson on an e90 yet so not sure if i may be the first. Enjoy the pics

Is that a full carbon front!? It looks really good, need something more aggressive in the back to complement that though. May I suggest a diffuser and the BMW Performance trunk spoiler?

Its the FRP front with real cf over laid onto the splitters. I am going to do a diffusor and maybe a boot lid next but I want to do something no one else or few have.

Nice~

I would go with a subtle yet aggressive spoiler instead of a full trunk replacement though.

Yea I agree. I have always liked the Perf lip you mentioned. I also like the "Challenge" lid that is being developed by one of the vendors here. but I have a feeling that will be $$$$.

Challenge lid wont be as pricey as you might think. I'd wait for that.

Car looks great! Keep up the good work!

Has the 11-99 plate frame ever gotten you out of a ticket?

The car looks great! Nice wheels!!

The Ericsson bumper looks killer on the E90. I wish they made the complete kit for the E90 M3. I wanted to do this but I was worried how it would flow with the rest of the car. For some reason I though it wouldn't flow well with the OEM side skirts but I see it isn't so bad.

Good work

Yes. It has more than paid for itself. Including just two weeks ago.

Killer front end! I'm lovin the look of the Ericsson front bumper on the E90 M3.

Glad to see someone pulled the trigger for this on an E90 M3. Turned out awesome! Now time to dress up the rear end! Mold an Ericsson rear bumper to fit the E90, now that would be unique!

I have the BMW Performance rear spoiler and love it too! Turns heads everywhere.

Congrats!
