I genuinely like rear spoilers or lips usually and I have one in my garage waiting to be fitted - not sure this one hits the spot though on your car.... :?:

Obviously if you like it go for it... Loads of people wouldn't have my body kit but I like it

I honestly don't know. No idea.

I decided to buy the aero spoiler instead "flytothesky" one ;).
But acs splitters are more important right now for me.

Congrats with mirrors!

About rear diffuser - I don't see much visual improvement in that... Not bad, but imho not worth the money unless it costs less than 100 EUR.

I kinda like it - and the lip spoiler? Nice!

I had to sort that exhaust out though, it was bugging me. Not that keen on the quad exhaust, but I had to at least flip the horizon on the exhaust, add the reflection and remove the spare wheel since it'll have to go, hope you don't mind.

I also added a clear third brake light, think it neatens it up a little?

I would make 4 fins instead of 2 and shorter by half.

I like oem aerial better - that long diagonal line looks more dramatic and visually adds speed :)
Not a fan of chrome gills on your car. On any car actually.
Removing rubber strips from hardtop... I don't know if that is much improvement.
Other mods I approve :)

I do love the Z3m and ACS front end, it is such an improvement over the regular bumper. I'll probably stick with the Reiger front splitter on my new car, although I have a couple other bits to run up front which will hopefully set it apart from the norm!

I have a few questions...

I think the hardtop looks much cleaner without the seal, but surely the seal serves a purpose? Is the roof still water tight?

Is the exhaust custom?

What's the deal with the 330xi brakes, will you need to upgrade your calipers etc?

Thanks!

330xi brake discs are larger (325mm vs 295mm if I remember right), you also need to swap the calipers, but they are bolt-on, no mods necessary. It also affects braking bias a little, but they are not overheating so fast as stock 2.8 brakes.

I did have the chrome gills on but wasn't happy with the looked. I think they look okay on a silver or light colour, but on a dark colour like my Montreal, I think asthetically the way the rear end suddenly stops against the vertical door line doesn't look right, and yes I agree they do tend to look a little blingy. Love the car and was one of the cars that spurred me on to getting a set of ACS wheels.

Love the ACS front splitters, there actually called Flippers believe it or not, they were the best mod I ever did on my M roadster a few years back. Whats the deal with the third brake light why does it stick out so much?
