That looks great. Trying to make the decision between this and the LTBMW 1M bumper.

Looks great!

I know the thread is re the front but I'm wondering, what gets you this side skirt (sorry if I'm naming it incorrectly) - that is not stock, the way its scooped in, right?

Thanks!

This is 100% factory and fits perfect. The LTBMW 1M looks awesome but I keep reading about "fits pretty good".. Needs some this or that... I'm sure they'll get it perfect.

Those are the side skirts that come on the M Sport. Same as the front end.
The rear bumper is also different on the M Sport.. I"ll change the side skirts down the road but not the rear bumper. Not a fan of the rear bumper.

Thanks!

I paid just under $1,700 for everything and that's with a great deal from Greg (GTM). BMW painted and installed. They were so reasonable on the install I just had them do it. Glad I did since I needed different brackets for the fog lights and a different center bracket was needed. ($60 bucks for the 3 brackets). The money was well spent. The car looks 100% better.

It's dropped now and looks awesome...

Going to PM Greg for the price on the side skirts.. Now that the front is done it makes the sides look a little bland.

Do you think you could post some more pictures of the car before you get side skirts? I'm thinking about getting the bumper only for my car but I was worried about how the sides would look. So it would be nice if I could get a reference hehe

Doesn't look bad at all with just the front done. I have AW as well so thanks for the picture, I now know how my car will look.

Cheers.

So someone enlighten me. Is this picture showing all it takes to do the retrofit? Any extra screws / brackets? Is it possible to DIY this project?

Also, the M-Performance Front Bumper Retrofit Kit that costs $900 MSRP, word on the forums is that it excludes the actual bumper? Can anyone confirm what the heck the kit contains? The part number is 51952318192

Thanks in advance.

Dont trust this seller. I have very bad experience buying 2 sets of m-sport body kit for F30 from him.

The first set, after 3 months, with alot of promises, after giving me tracking number, all I received was the rocket panels only. 1-2 weeks later, got the front & rear bumper, but alot of small parts like front & rear reflectors missing.

The big problem is I buy for customers, to sell, not for personal use.

The 2nd set, never shipped, My friend in US helped to call them, but got promises from them again.

They promised to refund me, but after weeks, money never arrived back
Keep away from them or you will lose money.
