    And another widebody option for the E92 M3 enters the market. Introducing the Duke Dynamics E92 M3 widebody kit. This kit consists of nine pieces including the front fenders, rear fenders, side skirts, front bumper, rear bumper, and rear diffuser. Options for the material of the body pieces are either FRP (fiber reinforced plastic) for $5,650 or carbon fiber for $9,050. The pricing makes the kit a very good value namely in FRP.

    It's a good rule. But you can be a champion in areas BimmerBoost respects without winning a spelling bee.

    Not to mention, if you are going to correct one typo you might as well point out the rest. No need to half ass it (playing). I wish they would make one for the 135.

    I have a question - not sure who here has an aftermarket hood, but figure this is a good place to ask.

    One thing that I noticed on my current car (e90 M3) is that the paint on the hood seems to be of lower quality than it was on my e46 M3. What I mean by this, is I have a pretty decent "spraying" of rock chips over the front foot or so of the hood. I can show some pictures if anyone wants, but it's pretty explanatory. I am not sure if this is because of my higher average speed in the car (yes, I am serious) - or what, but the car is a little over 2 years and is in worse condition than the (at the time) e46 M3 of 4-5 years. This really doesn't bother me, as it's not as bad as it sounds - and kinda gives the car character (war wounds) <g>... I am just curious if a new hood makes sense in this case when the time comes.

    The other question is - if an OEM hood was replaced with something like this, would there be any issues? In other words, do people do this solely for cosmetic reasons, or are the hoods functional/proven? Will it rattle at 120 MPH? Will it be of shoddy fit? <-- Things like that... I again - could care less about the cosmetic attributes -- I really only care about the functionality of it to be honest...

    I guess if it's a good OEM substitute, and won't have any issues for people who drive the car like it should, it makes sense to replace the OEM with something lighter. Just trying to see if I should repaint my hood - or buy a new lightweight one... At this price, I don't see why one wouldn't bite for the lower weight, but don't see them too often - so am wondering what the reasons are.

    Hope that makes sense.

    For the most part a cosmetic piece but offers venting of hot air from the engine bay as well.

    This looks cool, im not big into wide bodies usually just because I think that BMW spends ton's of money into building a car a certain way. But for each their own.

    I hope someone gets it and makes it look good. WITHOUT matte paint.

    It looks like nearly all the body panels are being replaced. Since the OEM m3 stuff just bolts onto a 335 if you get all the pieces, wouldn't this theoretically just bolt onto a 335 also?

    I don't know but I don't think this fits the 335.

    Actually yes, it should. That's why I suggested it go on my car here in Canada lol. If you buy everything plus the hood, you have a full front conversion, so that is not a problem as the headlights are the same.

    Side panels are fine, and rear quarter panels you would need to do welding for the wide body regardless if its an M3 or E92. Then the rear is also changed with another bumper.

    No issues that I can see to get this on an E92....heck I am seriously thinking about it. I got a quote for prior-design's full body 1M kit, now this is in the running as another options....well kind of...still not sure what it looks like in regards to the end result. It could look really good, or it could be a mess.
