I purchased my car on Janurary 2013. The modding bug bit me as soon as I signed for my car. The ideas and possibilities that were running though my mind got me excited. I started looking for mods and was intrigued with Arkym's new full front bumper for the E82 1 series. Once I saw pictures, I knew I had to have it. I thought that I pair this aggressive bumper with an equally aggressive set of rims. We opted for a set of brushed aluminum finish 18 inch BC Forged Wheels HB04 with a 8.5 width in the front and a 9.5 width in the rear for more concave. To finish the look, I also purchased a set of Autotecknic matte black kidney grilles, tow hook and LED angel eyes which put the finishing touches.

Mod List:
- AutoTecknic LED Angel Eyes
- AutoTecknic Tow Hook
- AutoTecknic Matte Black Grille
- BC Forged Wheels HB04 18x8.5 18x9.5
- ARKYM Aerorace Full Replacement E82 Front Bumper

Special Thanks to:
- Club Auto Sport for photo location
- PYSpeed.com for all the parts
- SonicMS for the paint and install
- AutoTecknic, BC Forged Wheels and ARKYM for amazing products
- Ed Tran for amazing photos

Without further delay, here are the photos. Go easy on me, I am a rookie. =)

I wonder if that built-in lip on the bumper will preclude you from adding any lip on the front.


Looks great, btw. Whats next? Spoiler? Go-fast mods?

Now that bumper looks good. And you got some pretty decent concavity in those wheels, nice!


Only suggestion, I think performance side skirts would look good and help tie the bumper in.

I actually really like the ARKYM front bumper, I wasn't sold on it until I saw these pictures though.

Only thing I think you could do to make it look just a tiny bit better is 1M mirrors. The beefier mirrors would match the front bumper really nicely.
