M3 E92 Performance ft. M4 stripes

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Hello all,

I'm a n00b and would like to share my recently owned E92. Before delivery it needed to personalize a few details. I loaded it with Performance goodies exept the front and mirror cf. Personly i love the oem black/white details on the mirror and the front splitters just lost it from the CRT cf splitter. The e92 stripping (Casual not very special, but gives pain protection) lost it also against the M4 stripes.

I searched the hell out of online CRT splitter and M4 stripes on M3 E92..

For my daily life i photographing sometimes and love to improve Processes withing large company's. As for my history, it's my first BMW and i gotta admit

(just love this smilie)

Very nice! However tend to agree with Trevor, final tweak would be to take it off the bumper as I don't think it does anything good to the overall body form.

cheers

If I understand correctly, the displayed stripes are of the M4 livery? I think they work with the new F8X cars, because their body lines are more sharp and boxy. Our E9Xs exhibit more curved and softer lines, thus why I don't see/ like this stripe pattern. It's bold, but I don't think it fits our body style.

The polished wheels look at little off with the decals. I think ZCP wheels would mesh better with the decals. Nice ride though. Here's a suggestion to clean it up a bit.

Couldn't agree more with the gentleman above. Also, some silver wheels would really clean up the look. Great stuff OP

Thanks for the opinions. I'm very curious then how ya'll (delete CRT style splitter 'votes') thinking bout GTS and all other most used (Performance) splitters...

I was searching for a decent splitter, where the end 'winglets' from the OEM frontbumper stays visible. i.e; the CF Performance front splitters deletes them . I think a very minor but important detail for the front M bumper. Nevertheless, appreciate the opinions

Well that was mine first (thought) problem, when prepping the 'stock' car. Because the totall package making it now very agressive and racey, but the 19" OEM polished are a 50/50 agressive and decent. Where the CZP are ofcourse brutal racey.

I have the OEM 18" winterwheels (not very bad looking) for the M3E92, those are alse more agressive then these polished 19". I'll put them on this winter and experience the more agressive look.

Decals, i saw them from the M4 owner who dit that design and not bad indeed. Funny thing is that i can always cut them i.e. in this shape

As a photographer, OP's eye should be keenly aware that the stickers do not follow the e92's contour and body lines, especially the lower stripe.

I think the stickers look out of place.

I am not a photographer, but I just drank a Dr. Pepper, and I agree....they do not follow the lines. For a full track build maybe, but a regular car just looks out of place
