How bad is it? I'm really looking into purchasing an Arkym front bumper for the m3.

Any reputable body shop can take care of fitment issues for sure.

I know they have 3 bumpers for this car that they swap quite often so it might just be a mounting issue. When the car was here I looked it over closely and the bumper fitment at the time was very good.

The wheels are very nice

that's a shame.. you would think attention to detail is so important when photoshooting a car for an ad.. I'd be livid over these pics if I was the CEO over at Arkym because the fittament issue is right in your face.

I'm just judging from the pictures posted above. The problem is most evident along the wheel well where the bumper meets the quarter panel, and the gap between the hood and the kidney grills. If the fitment is that obvious in pictures, it's going to even more obvious in real life.

Good eye man! I really didn't notice that. Hmmm, got me thinking now whether to get an arkym front bumper or not.

Your right btw when you said that if fitment issues are obvious in pictures, it will show up more in real life.

You can see from this image from a previous photoshoot, there is no fitment issues. Same car, same bumper.

Amazing car. The new wheels are nice but the HRE P43S looked better imo. Splitting hairs really...
