Bmw Body Kits

By: Kalin

One of the most popular things about BMW today is their body kits. BMW have the biggest range of variety when comes to these cool aftermarket solutions. Of course every manufacturing process is all about the market and its needs. And today the market is growing allowing body kits to take larger place in it. This is mainly because of the nature of the drivers who drive BMW cars. They are driving enthusiasts who will most likely modify their car to fit every need they feel. For these men driving is a passion, an act of freedom where they could be themselves and live the way they want to.
When the high speed on the highway turn someone on he will soon need more than that and this is the normal process for every enthusiastic driver. But what could come next after buying the car of his dreams? Well - he could tune it up to cover his needs, to meet himself.
Is that enthusiastic driver you? If you feel the need of speed in the autobahn and the adrenaline is rushing into you when you just think about it - this article is for you. It will show you what is cool on the road and what could let you put your car into your own style.
Usually the design of a BMW car is not good enough. It is cool and everyone likes it but it is not good enough for everyone who feels the need to be different. And what could be more natural than this? We are different after all.
That's why BMW M cars came with pretty innovative look and design. They made easy for many aftermarket manufacturers to adapt to this new look and provide even better solutions. BMW M3 body kit became the most popular one for every BMW 3 series owners.
Now it is time to dive in the different BMW series and what is available for them. BMW 3 series is the first I will cover and there we will see many solutions starting with the fender and ending with the wing.

When picking up a body kit you should first choose if you want to pick every element by yourself or you want to pick a whole body kit that is already made. For BMW 3 series you could pick for example the 4DR E46 M3 which comes with these elements: M3 Style Front Bumper (102057) R-1 Rear Bumper (102062) and R-1 Side Skirts (102451). I know that they may not mean anything to you only with these names but you could check them out on every catalog and see if you like every one of them. Keep in mind that you could change something and there is no need to pick a whole body kit if you don't really like everything in it.
For BMW 5 series or any other things are pretty much the same. There are many solutions and it's up to you to make the idea of what you want and pick it up. One cool solution here is E60 AC-S which looks really stylish in silver.
When you finally choose the body kit you want there are few things you should know. The first thing is that you could install it yourself. Yes, this could be done pretty easy but it may not be such a great idea. Due to some different tolerances of BMW 3 Series you may face a few difficulties which could be easily overcome by a professional. That's why I suggest that you take you car to a service where the body kit could be replaced and prepared for use. There is some tweaking to be made there too. It should fit perfectly in order for you to be fine with it.
You should know that the body kit comes unpainted. This is right for front bumper, rear bumper, side skirt, and fenders - they all will come to you unpainted. This is done in order for a perfect color to be kept after you install the body kit and paint the whole body of your car. Of course this is where the professional comes into play. Finally when you get the perfect color matching you could proceed further.
You should know that Carbon Fiber Hoods could be a good solution. They fit perfectly on BMW 3 series and they are very lightweight which reduce the overall weight of you vehicle.
Now let me give you a tip. It is about shipping. If you buy your body kit from the net or any other catalog that requires the body kit to be shipped to you keep in mind that there should be an insurance provided. This will guarantee that the body kit comes to you intact. If it is damaged the insurance will need to pay for it.
Since you are in the car when you drive there are many important things that should be taken care of too and they are inside the vehicle. Many people make the mistake to think about only the look from the outside and when they come into the car they don't feel the comfort they paid for. The interior is very important. It should not only make you happy when you watch it. It should keep you safe. That's why some quick release hubs could help you disconnect your steering wheel in seconds as a security measure.
Every component you touch should feel solid and ready for race. Everything you need should be within reach and easily manageable. I know that all this sounds a little unimportant but I am sure you will evaluate it with time.
The seat you are using should support you during the ride. It should be tested by you before you buy it. It should not only feel comfortable but it should also manage to keep your body at ease and after a long day on the road you should feel less fatigue.
Shift knobs are also important. They are not only adding some visual appearance to you interior. By adding some weigh on shifter you could feel it better and the response will be good.
