the BMW Performance bumper has really been growing on me lately. Im surprised more people dont get that set up.
I agree with you, before purchasing the 3D design front lip I was debating going after the performance front bumper, the only thing that steered me away from it was how high up it sat and there are no after market lips for it really, just splitters. I wish it hung a little lower, I think it looks amazing on our cars done right.

Would look really nice on a lighter-colored car with the bottom "lip" area painted black

awesome. cant wait to see it. it actually looks better in your photos than the previous ones show. cant wait to see the finished photos.

Does it use OEM 135i ducting, OEM 1M Ducting, or does it run no ducting?

So it does have a tow hook opening. As for the washer fluid, some people don't have that as an option on their cars and it's not really that hard to drill some holes for yours. So many people wanting a 1M like bumper - Someone makes one, and then nothing but hate it looks like. Although every ones complains only seem to be the front lip that's built in.

It's not the style they're complaining about necessarily, it's the price they don't like.

Well, and for some of us one other thing, I'm not interested in an FRP bumper for my daily driver.

Styling wise, this bumper is 10X better looking then stock.

But it's not a FRP bumper. It's a poly woven composite.

Piqued my curiosity, is it made of pMMA or PE? Can't find any info on PWC via google. First time hearing about PWC.

That's what PYspeed told me and I've searched around and can't find any real explanation of what poly woven composite is. Since you have the bumper, does it feel flexible like PU?

Poly Woven Composite sounds shady especially since almost nothing comes up on Google about it. I highly doubt Arkym is pioneering it or invented it. Probably just a marketing term they're using to hide its true material.

Arkym / PY has a really bad rep on the M3 side of the board.
