I already have H & H Fr / Rr strut tower braces.

Race Tranny Mount bushings.

I called the guys at Turner Motorsports and ordered up

Sounds like a pretty good plan to me. I just wish I had the 3g's to put in my car.., Looks to me like you got some good stuff though. Lets us know if it all works well together.

Or you could have just saved up a bit more and gone for sc...

But that's just me. I care more about whats under the hood, than what it looks like frmo the outside (like kit).

Nice mods though.

I painted the Front end last night and installed it all today. I also picked up the rear valance trim to match the front end. I found out the front end and trim I bought from Turner was an M3 prior to 4/95 . They had smooth trim around the vehicle , which I think looks cleaner anyway.

I'm waiting for the correct fastners for the splitter and then I'll pop that on.

Looks awesome. I've been debating M3 front bumper or not, and so far I'm going to not get one. It's just too much money for cosmetics IMO.

Yea it took me a long time to come to grips with the cost and I finnally caved in and did it . I'm glad I did it and it transformed the front end to match the upcomming mods.
I don't want to pose as an M3, so all the 328is Badges will stay. I may put the BMW Motorsport side panel trims (smooth of course) and once I get all the mods done I may put some other type of Emblem on the Lh side of the trunk.
Like a UUMotorwerks logo or something, only because I spent the most $$$ on mods with them.

i would love to get an m3 front bumper

how hard was it to paint the bumper yourself, let alone get it to match your color?
