When I was there you have the OEM bumper on with the Club Sport lip.

What happened with your 1M bumper?

I'm really liking this 1M bumper on bright color cars. Looks great

Thanks Rob.

I also like the carbon fiber lip for the 1M bumper which gives me a lot of clearance driving on the streets of LA.

I have about 3 1/2 inches of ground clearance which is enough to clear any steep driveways and speed bumps.

The lip also clears the parking lot of The Americana in Glendale which destroyed a lot of lips going down the multi level parking. LOL

I feel you on that. Hence the development of the new RCRT Street lip I got. The lowest point is literally the OEM bumpers lowest point.

Again the car looks fantastic. Great job.

This looks really good. I think the trunk looks great the way it is. This is definitely one of the best wraps I've seen. I was convinced it was OEM fire orange when I first saw it. And for that price, I could have changed the color of my car instead of clear filming.

It was nice seeing you on the road Rob.

The new lip looks sick.

Nope it's regular 3M clear wrap. I did the whole front, front fenders, rockers and wheel arches for the same money.

I also saw you when I made a right turn.

What kind of license plate bracket do you have mounted on the tow hook?

It's the "No Holes" bracket that **********s sells. I think they have a fitment for E92 and E82 so I think you're in good shape lol.

Saw you again 20 min ago...I guess nobody could ever knock us for being late

I heard the sound of your exhaust and saw you when you past by.

Damn. Good lookin change going with that 1M bumper. That's the same look I'm leaning to. Nice car OP.

Notice any issues in change in terms of approaching driveways regarding the new lip? I mean as compared to your previous setup. More angled approach/slower turn in?

I get more clearance with this lip than any other lips on the market today. I have about 3 1/2 inches of ground clearance.

No need to do some crazy angle to get off the driveway and I can take speed bumps head on.

I am dropping off the car today at Rotora to install their E92 M3 BBK kit.

I opted for the Red BBK Color to go with the Fire Orange, I think it should match well with the Volk Super Laps with the Red sticker on the spokes.

I will post pictures of the install and impressions on the Rotora BBK kit.
