I believe the more costly the repair, the more your insurance premium will be monthly/annually. The first accident don't cost you anyhting...anything after is a percentage of the cost to repair. If you don't care about your premium payments, go with oem.

I recently got my front end damaged and got brand new headlights/1 fender/hood and oem m sport bumper. Got it all done at Martino's. Approx $15 G's! This was my first accident, so therefore zero liability on me and no increase on my insurance rate.

There has to be more to it than that. He'd be making thousands. There have to be supports/mounts and all kinds of bent shit to rack up $15k IMO.

Garage List
M-sport is OEM.
M-tech is the OEM replica.

Long story short, same thing. Just be careful about fitment.

I'm trying the m-sport this time. and no worries Midnight Magic, i have no fault for both of my accident. both insurances took 100% liability. my first one cost around 10k. this second one, i dont know yet. but the shop is replacing my whole front; bumper, both fenders, both head lights.. the damage was on the left but broke some clips on the right fender and headlights that's why they're replacing it. then just today the shop found out that my engine cover under my car was damaged as well. Ugh. i just want my baby back...

Both m-sport and m-tech/m-technic/m-technik are used fairly interchangeably. However, for m-sport, I think of the total package option. m-tech, I think of more the individual parts and/or kits.

That said, go for oem m-tech/m-sport IMHO.
