Arrow 2 Series front bumper / fascia on a F20/21 hatch...

I think this is a cool mod! Its not cheap at nearly 3K euros, but its really freshens up the F20/21 nose quite a bit.

I am still not at ease with the current F20/21 lights, so this is a significant improvement to me

That looks good.

Are these OEM parts which they adapt to bolt onto the F20/21 or are they aftermarket parts? Looked at the link but I can't read German.

I didn't see much work-in-progress pics, but looks pretty bolt-on.
Amazing, I love it.
With the M-Performance front bumper, would be even more amazing
But, not cheap. Maybe we need to wait the F20/21 LCI. Who knows what that will bring

Yes. For cost reduction purpose, the F22/F23 front is designed in such a way that the skin changes without changing the body/frame/chassis and fixing points. Everything is bolt on unlike the E90 and E92 front. Those had different shape front doors, which required different fender design, and different A-pillar, which required different hood design. You could theoretically fit the F21 front on the F22, but who would?

Agreed, the 2-series M-Performance front would look amazing on the 1-series!

I notice that the parking sensors are placed differently on the 2-series M-Sport and M-Performance compared to the M-Sport 1-series. I have no idea how these things work, but I guess they're attached to the bumper and that there are wires that connect them to the car. Are the four sensors first connected to each other and then to the car with just one connector, or is there a separate connector for each sensor? If the latter is the case, could the length of the wires be an issue?

I'm fairly happy with the looks of my car, but I still want to do this mod. Just look at it! Beautiful!

Now that the facelifted(lci) 1er is out now... I must say I prefer the 2er face to the new 1er face.

What do you guys think?

This front looks awesome. I love my 125i so I may just update it to have this front on it (Estoril blue of cause) instead of trading mine in

Does anybody know if this lip spoiler is available as a separate item.
If so is there a part number.
It looks like the lower front section is the same as the M Sport.
