    hi prob should of added this in to my other post but i forgot sorry...

    i basically have a 2003 m sport e46 cab, i have 19 staggerd rims and due to the width i cant lower the car as much as i want, i can the front...which is fine. but when you look at the back of the car, the back bumper just sits far to high for my liking, i notice some cars m3 have a spoiler/splitter available for the rear that makes the bumper apear longer n makin the car look lower... thing is i dont want to replace the bumper for sum cheep magazine rubbish not do i want to the additional piece to look cheap or out of place, however i am struggling to find what im after for the m sport read bumper

    does any one have any ideas? have you seen what i need? does it excist? any info or ideas would be great? pictures?

    i have considerd arch rolling but ive been told its 50/50 on messing the paint up?

    Its all about the offset... but a guy sparky on here has 8.5 wide all round BBS LM's and has coilovers and it looks like this... He needed spacers for the front... so do i on mine!
