Ltmw is not a manufacturer, Long tran makes custom parts using oem 1m bumpers and whatever your cars donor bumper would be, so the best price is going to be at least the BMW retail cost of 2 bumpers since he can't use the one on your car, plus labour, plus shipping, plus duty.
Also ltmw is one of the most in demand workshops in the USA, for good reason, a few UK people have inquired there already but got little in the way of a reply.
If you want to go down the custom route you are probably better off finding a good uk based body shop and asking them to do the same moulding long tran would, save the shipping, but its unlikely you will get any sort of group buy rate.
