thank you for the quick info. I have been looking at the ksports for a while spoke with an e46 m3 owner who has them and is really happy. just a little worried as i have found a lot of bashing and not much technical feedback

Hi! They are replicas of the E46 DTM splitters. For the Aerofront they are to long, but have almost the same shape to curve around the bumper, so I had to cut them by 15cm. So I cuttet them, grinded the edges round, then wetsanded and finally a new coat of clearpaint over the whole splitters.

Looks nice I think

Hard to say, the Aerobumper is totally flat, so its easier to fit the AB than the facelift one.

Its an Norwegian site that sells them, and they do not ship outside Norway

But I have a picture of them if it helps?...

Beautiful car! The hardtop and rear lip really help out the roadster in the styling dept.

Cool another Norwegian COTM.

That car gotta be one of the sickest Z4 I've seen in here, looks so badass.

BTW, where did the black grill go?

Thanks my friend

I didn`t like the look of the all black grill, so I mounted some chrome again. But the kidneys are still gloss black

Your E90 looks really nice, so many good touches done

Proof that even with tons of power, drifting has it's own set of driving skills.
He came close to the wall on one of those Manji runs.

thanks for the pic, so the pic you posted... that's the bottom of the splitter, does the other side (front) look like this? seems like the e46 splitter "hugs" the front?

and when you say the bumper is flat, you're referring to the bottom? wouldn't all bumpers be flat on the bottom?

Yes it can be the e46 splitter you posted on this picture. But the second part on the picture are from e46 CSL and will not fit.

I`m referring to the bottom of the bumper yes, and its really special that the bumper its totally flat, the most bumpers has some curving at the bootom.

Sorry I got another look at the picture, and it seems that its the underneath of the CSL splitter, so both is the same splitter.. Then its not the same as mine....

bmwZ...please stop posting anything to do with this car!! Seriously....I had to park mine for winter...and this is killing me!

jk....the hardtop with this colour combo is sweet....I might have to find a hardtop for mine and extend my season of driving a bit longer.

I guess until that happens I will have to live vicariously through you and several others who can drive 365 days a year!
