Looks awesome! Personally, I would go for the m sport side skirts and a 335/340i bumper with the split exhaust. I think the side skirts are more important though!

I think that'll be my next purchase. Nothing crazy, maybe just drop it 1-1.5" with some H&R springs.

M Sport side skirts are definitely coming soon. I'm just having trouble finding ones that don't look cheap on the web. I'd love to get my hands on an OEM set that are already painted BSM, but that's unlikely.

Split exhaust is definitely something that's in my future too. Now that the most time consuming part is done, buying a new diffuser when I find an exhaust that I like will be easy.

What's next??

I'll upload some better photos of the bumpers once the weather warms up a bit.
Where'd you get the M sport steering wheel? Everything I find comes with the paddle shifters and I have a 6mt. Or can you take them off during install?

I purchased the steering wheel and airbag separately on eBay. The airbag came from the US and the steering wheel came from Europe.

As far as the paddles, I didn't really care whether or not the wheel I was buying had them since my car doesn't and I didn't want to wire and code for them. They're removable if you hate the look, otherwise you could just leave them on, they just won't function.

I'm not 100% sure I'll keep them this way, but I just blacked out the blue color on all my emblems. I do like it, just need to see it all cleaned up before I make a final decision.

I paid $400 for the front bumper and lip, $350 for the rear and $600 to have them painted and installed. So $1350 total.

Dude!

Whats up man, oddly enough I also live in RI and have an 2016 F30 almost identical to yours when you first bought it. Im itching to get the m-sport kit painted and installed right now, so I was wondering where you had this done?

The OP hasn't logged in since June 2018. More than likely that car is long gone
