Lumma restyles 3-series E90 in M look
Well-known BMW customizer Lumma from Winterling fits the current 3-series E90 with a new, elegantly proportioned styling kit, transforming it into the CLR3 RS. At the same time, the specialist tunes the 2-litre diesel engine of this mid-range saloon.


The heart of the modifications is the power increase of the 2-litre diesel. Lumma uses the D-box (750 euros) to breathe 145 kW/198 bhp into this turbo-charged compression ignition vehicle and boost the torque to 395 Nm, thus making this saloon significantly punchier.


After attaching the Lumma body styling components, the 320d transformed into the CLR3 RS, looks a great deal more powerful - without giving the impression of being excessively "souped up". This is because Lumma has been careful to only emphasize and not to distort the lines of this 3-series saloon. For example, with its racing grille and five air intakes, the front bumper made from PU RIM for 810 euros blends harmoniously into the basic design, signalling the driver in front to move over and give way. By fitting the TÜV-exempt headlight lens covers of ABS plastic, Lumma lends the front of this BMW a more serious look, which should further improve its overtaking prestige. Costing 406 euros each, as its pièce de résistance, Lumma fits two extremely light wing assemblies from fibre-composite materials, into which louvres have been integrated. These "gills" are reminiscent of the M version of this 3-series BMW and only add to its sporty appearance.


The sporty theme is continued on the sides by fitting electrically adjustable and heated sports mirrors in the M look for 599 euros in addition to a TÜV-exempt set of side sills from PU RIM for 562 euros, which are attached to the original fastening points. As regards the rear end, a roof edge spoiler for 289 euros and a three-piece rear spoiler lip - one section for the boot lid, and a section on each side of the rear (for the price of 463 euros) help to reduce lift. Thanks to a TÜV-exempt licence plate holder, which is secured with glue, it is possible to style the rear view of this 3-series BMW further in the M look. To round things off, Lumma equips the standard-fitted rear apron with a rear apron attachment that simply oozes power (520 euros). Occupying its cutouts on the left and right are the two mirror-finished (and sporting the Lumma logo) 90 mm thick stainless steel pipes of a sports rear silencer - naturally with EC type approval - made from stainless steel. It is currently in preparation and the CLR3 RS will shortly announce its arrival loudly with this wherever it goes.


Lumma further enhances the driving dynamics of this 3-series BMW by fitting a KW coilover suspension for the price of 1199 euros. Added to this, the BMW tuner equips the CLR3 RS with the set of wheels consisting of "Lumma Race" wheel rims in the dimension 9.5x20" with Kumho size 245/30-20 tyres at the front and size 285/25-20 tyres at the rear. The price for the complete set of wheels: from 5500 euros.
