Why would you mod it... it was built to a certain degree to be aerodynamically fit. ?????? Its a beautiful car..


This is just my opinion.

I agree. German engineers put a lot of work into making such a car stable at high speeds. Adding body kits for asthetic purposes seems kinda counterproductive IMO. n

i know so too, BMW engineers are the best in the world, but i thought they made body kits specially made for BMW designed by those engineers to enhance the performance. Guess thats why they call it "Ultimate driveing machine"

get a splitter, if your looking for higher performance at high speed, also look into a rear difusser

ok... a front splitter pretty much creates more downforce, thus allowing your car to not lift but in a way suck to the ground. It is installed on the very front of the car right under your fog lights. The rear diffuser lets that air go past the rear of the car with minimal resistance as to not interrupt the traction of the rear wheels. Thats my take on it... other may have different views...
