That kit is already out, and to be honest, it looks terrible. Too much flat square footage on the front of the bumper. No offense, but I'd never buy that one.

I you can do Le Mans front and rear that would be perfect! Iím sure you will get a lot of customers.





Now it looks similar to this:
Now this LeMans one, I'd take that in a heartbeat!!! I don't like the silver one in the bottom pic, those corners would be too much, but the LeMans one is absolutely perfect. Finally a tasteful kit for the prefacelift E53's. Converting the exhaust might not be the most efficient, but I've always liked cneter exhausts like that...Lambo, Cherokee SRT8, R8, Pagani Zonda, etc, etc.

I like the quad foglights, but those corners poking out on the front and rear, along w/ those sideskirts are just too Honda-esque for my taste. So far, I think the LeMans kit is hands down the best option. It keeps respectable body lines, and has that nice wide opening vs the kit the OP posted.

This one isn't bad either since the lowest portions on the outer corners of the bumpers still wrap in nicely. Very similar to Welcome to bavauto.com | Hamann Front Apron - On Road Style. Where is this one available at? Seems like nothing good comes from the USA anymore.

You've had like 5 people, including myself, say clearly that you should make the LeMans style, and you still hope for a group buy? I'm sorry, but I wouldn't hold my breath. No wonder this thread died off like 2yrs ago. What even happened to this guy? I hope no one bought these.

That black paintjob and all those huge, wide, flat areas are just screaming rock chips. It looks like nothing more than a variation of BMW X5 Sarona Body Kit - BM-029-KT by Sarona Body Kits Conversions and http://www.yourhotcar.com/productIma...8561951093.jpg. I would never buy that bumper, from the side shots it doesn't have fender lines it in, making it looks absolutely added on. Sure, that might work for gaudy showcars w/ Lambo doors, but that's not what 99.9% of this board would ever do. Just my .02

This pic and that guys kit are overly boxy regardless, color will change nothing. Also, looking at the ripples in the reflection of the red bricks on page 2 make me think that bumper is either very thin or poorly moulded.
