If i got some more pictures of it actually mounted up on a car and could look at the seams and body lines, possibly. depends if it comes painted for 800 bucks as well.

Nice! Please do. I think it would cost $200-$300 to paint.

Personally, I think the 1M front bumper looks a bit funny in the standard 1er width. It only looks right if you do a proper widebody.

By contrast, I think a good front lip looks great on a 135i.

take a look at the kerscher website. You can get one for alot cheaper and probably better quality. They dont rip you off with shipping either.

DTMfiberwerkz is bottom of the barrel quality. I saw their stuff on bimmerforums/r3v a lot when I had my e30s/e36s. As someone else mentioned, just buy the Kerscher bumper. It is superior quality and cheaper than the Ebay auction you posted.

the Kerscher Front is made out of GFK

the new Rieger parts are made out of ABS ( just like the OEM parts)

I don't agree. I think the 1m front only conversions looks completely off. Reminds me of a body builder with chicken legs. If I'm going that route then I'll be going full conversion.

Great find!

Has anyone used any of their products? I'm considering the rear diffuser.

Great.
Where can we see the pics from the event?

yeah the rear diffuser looked off because its aqua-printing or liquid painting, i forgot.

EDIT:

Looks nice this way

Looks even better with the classic 135i exposed side grille mod

This does look really nice, but is it publicly available yet?
