Vorsteiner gts 5 or Gintani aero kit

i feel like this is one of the biggest decisions i have to make when it comes to my car. i was getting ready to order Gintani aero kit and then Vorsteiner released the GTS 5 bumper and now i cant decied if i want the front bumper or should i just get the gintani aero kit.

GTS 5 Bumper


Gintani Aero package


now i luv the idea of have one of the 75 bumpers being made, that if i make up my mind in time ! but i still cant decide if i really want it.

so i would like if you guys share your thoughts on both... my car is AW

The GTS5 bumper is one of the best looking bumpers we've gotten to lay our eyes onm and we've seen plenty of beautiful M3s come through our facility.

Here are some shots, maybe it'll help with your decision







Feel free to ask any questions you might have about the Vorsteiner GTS5 Bumper

The first batch of about 15 bumpers is due for early August, and most of them have already been taken!

IMO, the Gintani aero kit looks like crap (quality and fitment wise).

I have seen it installed in person. The parts were wavy and had poor fitment.

If your going to go with something like that then I'd check out the combo 1M bumpers that a few places are doing they look great....

+1. Those extra vents look forced so they could have a 'new' bumper– just looks like clutter to me.

Personally, my favorite is the Vorsteiner GTS3 bumper. I think it is the cleanest looking aftermarket front end for the M3.

Guys also take note that the gts5 bumper only will be made in a 1x1 weave. Therefore, of you have a different weave on your vehicle and want to show some of the carbon on the bumper that may be a decision maker. I know the e92s carbon roof is a 1x1 so that works for all e92s with that set up. Just food for thought.
