F30 320i Sportline Upgrade
So I decided to bite the bullet!! I did a few upgrades to my 2015 F30 320i Sportline.

I know we all have different styles and tastes, this might not be everyone’s up of tea
However, I wanted to share my update. I hope you like the upgrades.

Will hopefully get some better pictures taken this weekend smile bounce

Upgrade Specs:
F80 front bumper
Carbon fiber mirror caps.
Carbon fiber boot spoiler
Carbon fiber eye lids.
M rims + ST rear wheel spacers
M Performance side skirt decals
Rear diffuser in gloss black

Before:

RE: F30 320i Sportline Upgrade
Very interesting bud.. I like some elements a lot and others not so much, but like you said, "we all have different styles and tastes"... If these upgrades make you smile, job done. The car definitely does stand out from most other F30's now though.

The F80 bumper feels a little out of place on the car but the rocker panel decals help in this regard. Would be keen for a proper shot of the rear to see the work done on the diffuser.. Next mod should be to drop the car so it sits low on those wheels Thumbs

Current:

03' BMW 330i Sport (M) - Alpine White III
11' BMW 320d Exclusive (A) - Space Grey

Exes:
10' BMW 335i Motorsport (A) - Alpine White III
02' Audi A4 1.9TDI (M) - Crystal Blue Metallic

Thanks bud.
The F80 bumper was touch and go. I changed my mind so many times. But the more I saw other F30’s with the bumper on websites I was sold. I by no means to make the car more than what it is. Only doing small upgrades to what I feel is right and what I like. That said, I appreciate your reply and I will hopefully lower the car next year. Thumbs

I think your car looks brilliant.
The F80 bumper looks discrete enough to not be overpowering on the front end.
Keep it as is.
I would not lower the car, since it would affect the daily usability - if you use your car as daily driver and travel to far flung areas.

I would recommend a thin black stripe - see below - on the sides.

Agree with the thin black stripe. Will complement your cars aesthetic.

+1 on the stripe. Also, get the side skirt extensions, and paint white. Should look cool with the bumper

I like it, probably some msport goodness at the back, but it’s always a work in progress.
