Before and After Pictures

Wasn't going to Mod but couldn't caved in after 1 year of ownership. Here is my 12' 528i. Debating if I should finish it off with M-Sport Front and Sides.

OP. Love the drop and rims. Don't fight the mod bug I guess. If you can get a good price on M-Tech bumper then go for it. However your car looks pretty sweet now. I have seen some nice carbon lips for non M-Tech bumpers. Have you considered that as a compromise?

Thanks man. Lips are nice but a 3D Lip for a non sport is already $1,200. I could get a replica M-Sport bumper with a Lip for about the same. I am leaning towards going that route.

Garage List
LACSTER found a 3D non-M lip replica for only $139, spot-on fitment according to someone who purchased it. Check on eBay, looks great btw, are they H&R's?

Love the color, I'm biased I guess lol! Car looks great, I would go msport with a lip like you say, it makes the car look more aggressive. Fighting the mod bug is futile!! Great work so far!

Looks good buddy. Did you go with black gloss or matte for the window chrome area?
