Interesting. I really have no desire to modify the M3 OEM parts though. Guess I will live with mine as-is. I want to be able to switch back to the stock bumper at will so having modified parts is out of the question. It's not important enough to me to have to buy another set of the M3 ducts.

Here is pretty much how it will look...

There is still couple more touching up that needs to be done tho...

-for example on the passenger side duct, the shop will create a piece of plastic to fully channel the air up to the radiator...

-and also they will hook up inside the wheel well to make the air flow thru "side gill" on the bumper and exit thru the wheel well

-and some other minor adjustments

Yea i feel you on that...I went thru hell to get this bumper after talking with you.

The reason i switched bumpers... the original bumper got damaged when someone hit me.
Insurance payed for the 1M bumper...

If i had to go back to OEM bumper, i would need to buy an OEM bumper with ducts.

Im just happy the shop went above and beyond to find a solution. They were surprised when i told them "everyone who has this bumper on the internet says they dont have their modified"

(mind you, im in Italy)

Form over function. Sigh. LT makes some nice looking cars. Not into the "show" cars though.

I got alot of requests for more pics of my bumper...

To remind you--i bought this directly from LTBMW (LTMW) out of California.
Google them and call them up directly as I did for better service.
Talk with Phil or Mellisa.

I had to wait 3 weeks for the build then shipped out the following week...
the order was placed back in Feb/March

Shipping for me was $600 to Italy, but if you are stateside, it will be cheaper.

They probably just sent you modified versions or that's what you use. Trust me you won't feel a difference. I had a rep bumper on my e92 335i and I hacked 80% of oem m3 ducts and just bolted it on. Didn't see any difference at all in temp at all... (FBO car really sensitive temps lol) You'll be fine

A little after/before

I love it! I just need to spray the exposed frame, and possibly install some new hex mesh in front of the intakes.

No sir. I have enough clearance scares where I live as it is now.
Maybe sometime in the future I'll dish out $1,250 for a lip
