My 2011 Jerez Black E92 M3 Before/After

6 Months ago, I got a CPO 2011 E92. Since then I have done a few mods and wanted the forum's opinion and what you think of the looks.

In looking at the photos, I think I like the original ZCP wheels better. I may just reserve the TE37's for the track. I am also planning on adding camber plates and lowering the car a tiny bit.

And before you ask, I did not buy the car in Maui. I got the dealer out there to give me a license plate frame

Here is the list of the mods in the "after" photos:
-Tint
-Hyper Yellow bulbs for the Angel Eyes
-OEM black kidney grills and side gills
-EAS OEM exhaust mod with EAS tips
-Arkym rear diffuser
-BMW front splitters
-BMW performance rear spoiler
-18" Volk TE37SL wheels with Hankook V12 265/285

Do you have any closer pictures of the rear diffuser?

How easy is it to install?

Diffuser is from Arkym but I bought it used and got it super cheap because it had a small crack that had been repaired. I painted it with some black trim paint. It was pretty easy to install.

Looks good, makes the rear look more aggressive and I like how it hides the muffler a little

Is there anything else involved in installing it other than just bolting it to the 4 spots?

quick question though...do your EAS tips extend further beyond what your stock tips did? In other words, would your stock exhaust tips extend to the end of your arkym diffuser? I have the MPE, and I don't want the tips to look "dwarfed" by a rear diffuser.

The 4 bolts are on the bottom so I used 3M tape to secure the top and sides.

No the EAS tips do not extend beyond where the stock ones did. When EAS did the tips, they asked me if I planned to get a diffuser and I said no because I didn't plan on getting one at the time. When I go down to EAS to have them do my springs/camber plates in a couple weeks, I am going to see if they can move them.

Nice work, I would have gotten the TE37s in gloss black thought. Looks awesome but loose the BPM decal

I am normally not a decal guy but Benvo and I live in the same part of town, he's a great guy with great products and fellow computer geek. I wanted to give him some props.

No, was asking about placement. Becuase there is no tow hook plate frame. Did you drill new holes?!

Don't take personal offense. You ruined your car. Should have just saved the mod money and kept it for lease or finance payments to just pay off the car.
