New Mods on my AW E92 M3- Dropped and Lipped

Took a couple pictures the other night of my M after its recent round of modifications. Need to get out for a full photoshoot now that the weather is better. These came out decent for quick shots, but needs some more editing.

Overall, the KW kit has been amazing so far. I actually think that it feels better than stock, less bouncy and much more planted. Turn in is better, and it actually seems to make my tires rub less. Going to lower the front a bit more once the springs settle a bit.

I was pleasantly surprised at the fitament on the front lip as well. I couldn't justify buying a $1000 lip that would likely get scraped/destroyed. This one was $3xx dollars and fitament is near perfect.

Added:
IND Side Gills
KW Sleeve Over Kit
Ebay Carbon Lip

if you don't mind could tell us the info on that lip you got from ebay. I been wanting a carbon lip too...and just like you I can't justify the $1000 lip on a car that I drive every day.

Car looks fantastic. I'll go ahead and say it because someone will... LCI tails and you are done! Agreed with the whole lip issue. Ripping up a $1000 lip is soul-crushing, that rep looks great.

Thanks everyone for the kind words. Been working on this thing for about a year now and just want to keep doing more and more.

I'm just waiting for the springs to settel before I make my final adjustments.

Not looking to go too low, pretty content with the way the back looks now just want a bit more in the front.

LCI Taillights are on the list. The coding part of it has prevented me from doing it sooner.

Here is the link.

It took a little modifications but does it fit near perfectly. It comes with bolts molded to the lip so you can really attach it. I didn't want to drill my bumper so I cut off the bolts and used 3M double sided tape.

You can get it at most Autozone's/Advanced/Etc.
