Arkym FTW! Perfect styling for the BMW, IMO.

Now...please make something for the non-M E92/ Mtech-Msport front. I think you could easily sell more of those than you will M3 parts.

Can't decide if I'm a fan. The side profile is VERY nice. But that diffuser is massive.

If this picture ain't good enough for the front page, no picture is. And as to the Mazda comparison. Sure they look alike, if by alike you mean after the Mazda had its soul ripped out and replaced by a demon because that front end looks Straight-From-Hell-Pissed-Off.

This kit makes m3 look akward and reminds me of a model car by some start up car company. Why would anyone want to do this to his/her car is beyond me. I guess you really have to dislike your m3.

Agreed, this kit screams of "rice" more than anything. The bodykit reminds everyone that you went to autozone to get it like those guys in civics.

To me the front only looks good in black or darker colors otherwise I think "angry downs syndrome" in white.

Hmmmmm...cant decide if its rice or not. The rear is horrible. Us BMW owners are a weird crowd at times, some things that scream F&F are acceptable....IDK I say leave the full bumper replacement kits to the Civics.

The kit is pretty nice if you want your m3 to look aggressive, but IMHO the rear diffuser is just too aggressive for my taste. I'd still rock it though, minus the rear diffuser.

This is one of the kits that is suitable for the e92 m3 coz it does not look ricey at all.

Overall, this kit really pulled it off. Hats off to Arkym!

HOWEVER, there is something I noticed though:

If you look closely, the paint on the Arkym kit does not match the doors, quarter panel, and roof. The paint on the Arkym kit (Front Bumper, sideskirts, and rear bumper), not forgetting the fender (even though it's not part of the Arkym kit) looks off white, kinda cream in color compared to the the doors, quarter panel, and roof.

Last edited by e92_m3; 11-02-2010 at 04:19 PM. Reason: Noticed that the paint on the Akym parts look darker than the rest of the car.

Hey Sean,

Do you think you can make the bumpers for Euro spec M3s which have front PDCs?

Thanks!
Am really keen on this kit.
