Who Did It Best...or Worst?

Top is AC Schnitzer. Middle is Hamann. Last is Lumma.

Which makes you drool? Which makes you vomit? All? None?

I like the Hamann wheels.

All the rest of the above make me vomit.

You're kidding, right? That's an easy answer. Lumma is obviously the "vomitable" one.

Agreed...Lumma just screams ricer, lol.

Also, what are you guys' thoughts on aftermarket COB LED day time running lights like the one pictured on the Hamann?



I'm just curious about this modification. Here's an e70 with the mod done (cob led drl = straight led strip as opposed to individual led lights like audi):


Here's a manufacturer that sells them: http://store.ijdmtoy.com/High-Power-...s-p/60-079.htm

The AC isn't bad but the other two are both awful.

Overkill, IMO. Doesn't look bad, but I prefer to let the coronas stand alone.

Here we go again... Hamman front bumper + rest from AC Schnitzer bar the ugly exhaust (Lumma one looks better for my taste). Or just AC Schnitzer with some other exhaust. Lumma is always a bit too radical if you ask me.

I agree.

I wonder how much roughly something like that would cost? And can you get it in Canada?
And is this a DIY project

I vote for the second one. The first and third are not my cup of tea.

All 3 are just so unnecessary IMO. more like pee than tea

unrelated, while trying to find a smiley that expressed my feelings on the matter, I couldn't find one that was quite right. But I did find this, among those you get when you use the 'more' link I have not explored nearly enough

I would do ACS, except the muffler.
I have to be carefull with this. Because everytime I said I would, I ended up doing it.
Also, as far as DIY, once you got it painted, it is pretty much DIY.

I agree. The ACS def looks the best out of the three. I really dig that blue paint color. Also, you're right about the muffler. I saw a bunch of different ones though on their official website. Is that particular one only for X series vehicles? That's what it showed for the SUVs. The cars got nicer options like X5M style dual exhaust tips.

Would you have a general idea how much just the front and rear bumper would cost? And how expensive is to paint it (roughly)? Since you look like you have lots of experience with these things

I have yet to get the price list from my ACS USA guy.
They haven't release the pricing yet, at least for the North America side.
I will keep you guys updated once I have info. If you are pretty handy with tools, I should be able to get it painted and shipped. Honestly, I wouldn't since anything can happened during transit.
