Heres another BMW with an M3 kit which includes front/rear/side skirts. I guess these alloys are not part of the M-kit.

This is a 330Ci with the M-Kit. And yes the alloys are part of the M-Kit.

hey V12, thats not an M3 kit. The front bumper on an M3 is different to the one in our pic. This is probably an aftermarket kit. Still looks way cool though!

Guys it is an M-Kit. Please go to supercars.net and check the pics of the 2000 M3 (Red Colour). nO aftermarket company makes a kit that looks like this.

Hey S600,

The reason I said that I dont think it is an M3 kit is coz the front bumper soes not have the bulge in the central air dam that the M3 has (see pic below.)


Now see V12's pic...there's no bulge.


Maybe its the way the pic is taken, but it does not look the same.

hey rtech,
the skirt is similar. it is the M3 kit. I had compared this silver BMW with the M5 skirts and it looked different.

What i meant to say was that I had compared the Silver 3 [my pic] with the M5. The skirts are slightly different and thats why i thought that its not a M kit.

Also the M3 [show pic] has a V-shaped center while the one in my pic has a rectangular air dam.

Hey,

Well i agree with Rtech that its DEFINITELY not the SAME as a M3 front bumper.

But what S600Benz is trying to say is that it is a M-kit (not M3 kit) on a 330Ci.
(Im guessing he provided the refernce of the Red M3 to show that it is indeed a M kit and not a 3rd party tuner kit because of similar styling.)

hey, i know this is an old topic but thought id chip in nevertheless i spotted this really garish n loud blue BMW M3 convertible earlier in the morning standing outside the Taj. it seemed to be a freash import or atleast in really good condition. i looked up these posts but no one mentioned seeing such a M3 so i thought i'd chip in. sorry if its a repeat. by the way would anyone know whats the difference in a BMW M3 coupe and a CSL?
