Mod update, 1M bumper from LTBMW, M-performance exhaust, M-performance grill, BBS CH

Mod update, 1M bumper from LTBMW, M-performance exhaust, M-performance grill, BBS CH wheels, H&R sport springs

1M bumper from LTBMW- fits like a glove, thank you Phillip from LTBMW. The bumper fits great, though you may need some minor modifications if you want everything to look factory and have all ducts functioning. Overall was very happy with the outcome, thanks to couple fellow e39 friends this went pretty smoothly.

Very nice. I love it. If you dont mind me asking how much was the front bumper? And when you say the fit was almost perfect, what did you mean? Did you have to modify anything?

235 for front and 265 is a good choice. I hate the rubber band/skinny tire look.

The bumper fit like a glove meaning fitment and everything lined up nicley. We did have to customize some things for example there was a plastic piece on the old bumper that had to be cut and reused on the new bumper to screw into the fender liner properly. The 1m ducting will not work with the f30 so u really need to fabricate some sort of mesh grill to have your original ducts function properly. The underneath may require some additional screws and drilling to line up. It seems worse than it is trust me. I am anal and OCD and want everything properly fitted and went the extra mile to have it like factory. If anyone wants to do i def would suggest it. Although most of the customizing and figuring out was done by my fellow e39 friends if anyone wants to do it feel free to pm me. If u don't care about having all the ducting lined up you could essentially take the old bumper off and put the new one on with minimum modification. I am trying to see if ltbmw will fabricate some sort of mesh grill that will go over the openings were the fog lights were so all the original ducting could be functional. If not then you will have to fabricate your own mesh grill.

Congrats. Looks nice. But, your car is black and the pics are very dark. Could you post some new ones?

I'm trying my best to see the new bumper but it's quite hard...I think its because your pics were taken with cloud cover?

I'd say, wait for a bright sunny day and take some pictures from the front in a wide open area. Hopefully we can see it better then.

Either way, congrats man! It looks great!
