As we have all witnessed with the release of the F10 M5, FXX M6, and now the F80/F82 M3/M4, BMW is continuing to push for more extroverted styling with the production M cars. For a BMW tuner this means that designing a piece, whether it is an exhaust system or front lip, requires a more sophisticated approach. This is evident in the new installment to the 3D Design aero program, the 3D Design F06/F12/F13 M6.

At first glance it is apparent that the 3D aero kit is one with the spirit of the M6. Every piece of the aero program pays particular attention to the unique body lines of the chassis. The dips, curves, and twists are continued through each and every piece. While taking a closer look at the front lip, it is easy to notice how the line of the lip meticulously follows the lines of the front bumper prior to dropping into a subtle 2-piece splitter.
The trunk spoiler takes on a more aggressive approach by borrow some inspiration from the Moto GP F10 M5. One of the most impressive aspects of the entire kit is the rear diffuser. The rear diffuser is aggressive, but tasteful. As a substitute for the approach of adding massive fins, 3D Design opted for a 2 piece bolt on lower section that beautifully frames the exhaust tips. The kit is rounded out with a carbon fiber bolt on side-skirt.
The goal of 3D Design is not to simply add a few simple design elements to the already gorgeous M6. As a quintessential Japanese entity, 3D Design’s designers are consumed by perfection. Although the kit is beautiful as a complete solution, every piece is designed as a standalone solution.
