I like the look of this, however it is OK for a $30K used E92 M3, but not a new $75K E92 M3.

+1 on someone molding this!

not feeling it.... I'd be interested to see the actual wind tunnel results if there are any. The transition between panels looks like it would create a massive amount of turbulence which could offset any added downforce or reduced drag coefficient.

Unless of course this kit is strictly for aesthetics, in which case it seems very impractical and unfinished.

Those rivets literally make it look like a bolt on...tacky IMO.

WOW i actually like it... compare to all the body kits that are out i think this is the best one so far.

i think its just missing a wing. if your going to put a wide body kit it needs a wing.

otherwise I LIKE IT.

Why would I spend 10k to have my M3 look like a cheap tuner car?

Would look incredible it wasn't for those rivets being so visible, makes it look tacky

also, super pricey for some screw on panels

Looks like Frankenstein's monster. Kinda late to be introducing an E92 kit.

Really? They're not for M3's, but one is also from Japan with a reputation for good fitment. Both kits offer more than LB Performance.

RevoZport






Prior Design



P.S. Your car looked cute at VF's bimmerfest booth last year lol.

Yeah... really, as others here have agreed as well. Show me pics of the revozport kit which you yourself admit is not even for the M3 and we can talk about whether those prices are worth it. As to the Prior design kit, its bland - teetering on horrible.

As to your p.s. - my car doesn't look 'cute' anywhere it goes. Seems like you've been keeping tabs on it. Maybe you have a crush

They're all tack on fenders made by reputable companies, probably from the same quality materials as well (Duraflex, polyurethane, sheet metal, etc.). As to the LB Perf. kit, its unfinished (You, "Now make it a non-bolt-on kit - something molded - and we'd be in business"), teetering on horrible outside of a race circuit, IMO.

Maybe I do lol.
I'm just giving you a hard time man, since you weren't S/C'd yet. Yet.

I am sure he does. I mean, I have a crush on it and I see it and take it apart all the time.

+1 on the LB widebody. I actually really like it. It could use some finesse to make it more clean and more friendly for a normally driven street car, but the overall look is proper. The Prior Design does not look good at all.

I can dig the fenders but everything else........

I'm assuming this is not reversible if you wanted to go back to stock?
