Exclamation E92 Stock Bumper Quad??

Is there a way to make the e92 stock bumper able to accept a quad exhaust without a hack job?

Thanks in advance

Hack job is the only way. Even with a hamman style fake c/f diffuser (which I have and hate) you still have to cut up your stock bumper.

What vendor did you purchase it from? and why do you hate it?

Purchased from Cyba along with a set of quads.

Fitment isn't great. Finish is well, get what you pay for. It's cheap and you can see it in the quality.

The adhesive required isn't really strong enough because the surface area for adhesion isn't that large. I'm going to get an Mtech until they make an M3 replica rear for e92/3

either hack away at your bumper or order an M3 rep bumper.

They don't have an e92 m3 rep rear yet, to my knowledge...

I know there is a fiberglass one but nobody has made that leap. More than likely a lot of fitment issues from a no name brand. Plus its going to be heavy and with an e93, last thing I need is more weight in the rear...

Yep, hack job is pretty much the only way, but its really not that bad. I still have the stock bumper with my Remus Sport axle-back. It actually came with two cutting templates, so making it fit was super easy. Used a dremel rotary tool with a cutting disc, took me no more than half hour to complete both sides.
