Looks great! I think the fitment looks fine. I'm a bit slow on the pick up, so what kind of bumper is this? A 1M bumper?

Did you do this all because of those rocks that hit you on the Mother's LBGP drive? lol!

LTBMW custom molds a 1M/M3 bumper, from what I understand. OP - it looks great. It's the only aftermarket bumper that I actually like.

Haha yeah brother. Those rock chips really got to me. Then after getting a respray quote, I decided f*ck it and went for the 1M bumper.

The bumper is a M3 bumper but the area between the intake duct to duct is cut out and the 1M is plastic welded in. Its prettty much 70% M3 and 30% 1M bumper.

LTBMW actually used 1M ducting. Its alot better than cutting the M3 ducting but its still not 100% the ducting is not continous all the way to the intake box, but it works.

Good decision. Really looks good man.....and it's a nice change from all the other aftermarket bumpers we're getting used to seeing.

Hmm, I guess I'm in the minority here, but the 1M's "busier" front bumper was one of the main reasons I've always preferred the M3's styling. But as others have said, that's an impressive job, looks very OEM.

Have the same bumper. The intake ducts are one of the worst parts of this setup. Without making some custom pieces, it lacks in that area. Also, watch out for cracking issues across the center of the bumper. I had to have my bodyshop reinforce that area.

What lip is that? I have the Slek CF lip on mine and yours seems similar but seems to be pushed up in the center.

I really dig the look of the bumper. If there was a manufacturer that could make a kit with a 1-piece bumper, correct intake and PS cooler ducting, and brake ducting, I think it would be a huge seller.

I got to play around with the bumper prior to installation. LTBMW seemed to do a really good job with the plastic weld. I bent and twisted the bumper and put a lot of pressure on it during the fitting and had no issues. The lip is the Moto GP lip. I have just adjusted it to fit properly. Here are new pics.
