I hope it comes with the fogs.

It is cool of you not telling your mom though. I'm sure she'd feel really guilty knowing she cost you money, especially when you were nice enough to lend her your car in the snow. But onto your question: I think the M-Sport bumper is the best option - especially if you're only getting the front bumper. I like the Rieger, but without the side skirts (which I don't like) it wouldn't look right.
You might also want to consider how low to the ground all 3 are before buying - especially if you deal with a lot of snow.
You caught me! If it's cheap, I might just repair it and then add a front lip spoiler. However, if I have to spend a few hundred on repairing the bumper, I might as well spend a bit more and get the M-sport bumper.
I told my mom to drive my car because I knew it would protect her in a crash. And it did just that! The front bumper is pinched and dented, but it did it's job of protecting my mom.
