Lightbulb E92 M3 rear bumper similarity, Check it out.

Hey guys didnt it ever come to mind that the M3 rear bumper may be some what similar to the Aero kit for the 335i? look at the shapes, you never know. just an idea

I think they look somewhat similar, but the M3 version appears to be more aggressive (based upon the little bit we can see).

yeah man, I've wanted to see the rear bumper for ages, it looks very similar to the M kit...

I don't know if it'll be that aggresssive, I don't really like the mesh design, it makes the bumper seem less solid. Dunno, jus my thoughts...

I agree .... lose the mesh, but that's not gonna happen. Hopefully it's kept to a minimum and only in the center.

yeah, me too. I'm leaning towards the plate in bumper theory too.

There are those that either forget about these spyshots of the lower rear mesh or those that say the bumper plate theory is incorrect because of these photos.

I'm glad the OP brought this up especially now that the aero kit is wider spread. It gives me more assurance that it is a dummy bumper, probably a camoed aero kit.

Of course the mesh is always visible on the mule, it's raison d'etre is to test out things like cooling systems, those are probably for the brake cooling.

Has anyone looked at the E90post.com page lately? I just noticed that there is a BMW M body kit available and to tell you the truth that front bumper looks identical to the M3 spy photos. Much in the same way the M body kit for the 5 series looks identical to the M5.

I very much doubt that BMW will just use the M-sport bodykit from the E92/E93 and stick it on the M3, especially since all the spy photos have shown a different design (http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=44085).

Personally I'd be disappointed if they did that. The M3 should have a distinctive look apart from the E92 coupe.

Yeah I dunno why people didnt see this comin, it was so obvious it was gonna be like this by lookin at spypics, thats why I made the rear chop...

I dont really like this rear design, its looks overly complicated and fussy, the quads are nice though ! I dont like the hood buldge and vents, it looks over the top and make it look like a modded civic lol. I hope its toned down. The side skirts are nice and front bumper is kinda growin on me...hmm a little dissapointed though...

i actually think this is it. what you see is what its gonna be. except for the CSL wheels and maybe the carbon fiber roof top who knows that might just be an option. but the wheels for sure those arent the correct ones. well atleast everyone has a taste of the real thing for the meantime. i actually like it now. but i want to see the real M3 wheels on it, the 19 inch wheekls like on my silver m3 chop. not the original 18 inch wheels. its gonna look meaner.
