I contact the seller to ask if this is meant for LCI & he said it's for LCI but will not fit LCI with sport package. Maybe the one with foglights will fit the sport package. I prefer the one with air ducts & it looks better.

What do you guys think of the price? Or shall we wait for more seller to get a much competitive pprice?
That is odd.... What will it fit them? Perhaps he is referring to the fact that ir requires the trim pieces from he M-sport to work, all of which can be purchased from Tischer. Otherwise there is not reason it will nto fit.

I also find it odd the seller posted a picture of a pre-lci bumper cover. I will contact him and ask for better pictures and clarification on fitment.

BTW, I did contact several of the Taiwan distributors/manufacturers claiming they sell an M3 bumper cover for LCI cars and I got responsed from 2 out of the 3 I contacted. It turns out after digging a little deeper with the manufacturer that the bumper covers listed are NOT for LCI cars despite what the add says.

There are two types of M3 bumper they're selling on ebay. One with foglights without PDC holes & the other one with brake air ducts but have PDC holes...

But today I came across this one...

Air ducts w/o PDC holes...

Modmy3 has the ones with the fog lights or the brake duct option for the lci sedans. I heard it was about 3 weeks when he has stock.

So the bumper came in today. Looks really good and really sturdy! I don't have time to test fit it on my car right now. But tomorrow or sat I should have some time. First thing i did was take my grill to see if it fits the bumper and with such suprise it fits perfectly. There may be hope for this bumper.

That's a good sign that the grille fits perfectly. I hope the rest will fit as well. Thanks for the pics & I'm getting really excited about this...

BTW, which one did you choose? foglights or air duct?

Seriously...you are a pioneer. We owe a lot to you if this works out.

msport/mtech has different fender liners and I believe different brake ducts. It will not line up with a stock lci car.

I emailed all of these sellers and when they couldn't provide pictures of the unit mounted I bought oem mtech. I may be kicking myself if this works out for you.

Same here, I run out of patience and decided to go for the M-Sport. The only good thing is that I only spend $100 because I bought the bumper with only scratches on the bottom on Craigslist.

Soooo i got around to test fitting it today. I put it on snapped pics then took it off because Im going to wrap the bumper while its off (i feel like thats a lot easier) anyways fitment is perfect, check out the pics. The screws that mount inside the wheel well onto the fender weren't screwed in, so there's a tiny gap, but if i use my hand and push it up, theres no problem.

Even without screws, the fitment looks great...I can't wait to see the end result...
