So, it's turned into a bit of a hassle and a much more tedious and expensive project than i thought so i think i'm just going to cut my losses and go with an M3 Rep front bumper instead. This bumper is for vehicles with headlight washer system. If you don't have the washer system, i'm sure a shop can fill them in and paint it to the color of your choice.
I just bought the bumper from DC_Oldboy for $400 plus it cost me $250 to get it painted Jet Black, so i'm taking the $50 hit and selling it off for $600.
Or if you have a Jet Black Pre-LCI M3 replica bumper you would like to trade, i'll trade that straight up if your paint is good enough condition...
**Sidenote... does anyone know if there is a BMW mod shop in the Northwest that might carry the M3 rep bumper so i can avoid freight shipping and just pick it up?
