Ok...the bad news first. So some lady on Friday swiped my car. Luckily it was only the front bumper. The issue is that the insurance company might not pick up the full cost.

The good news is I have always wanted to put an M3 style bumper ( I figure now is the best time to do it) on my car and was looking for some ideas. I want it to still look classy and not like a "rsx" body kit.

If anyone can give me some good suggestions on a good looking front bumper cover (possibly painted) that would be amazing!!

Here is a pic of my car now!

I am a big fan of the Mtech 2 front bumper over the M3 bumper. For you either one will be fine, but the wheels are not aggressive enough to pull off the "look" IMO. However, now is the time to do it so why not? You can always add wheels later. Choose your body shop wisely, matching AW is NOT an easy thing to do.

Hmmm... I'm on the fence on this,
The e9x bumper looks nice, but it doesnt flow with the e46 s lines imo

If they would match up the curvature of the front of the car, it would be decent.

Yea, it would look great
That would require custom work

The center of the bumper needs to be pulled out some to match the protruding hood.

You want to talk about weird matching parts, did you see the Civic with facelifted headlights, ///M3 bumper, and Mustang taillights? It was listed locally on Craigslist. I almost wanted to go drive it. Dude put some major money in the car, no doubt.
