Probably going to have to piece it together, this is what I am having to do with my bumper from Europe. The sponsors have been a huge help. (that and E-Bay and searching here)

Yeah, they might. Everyone has their own taste. I just prefer no fogs, I think it's cleaner and more aggressive.

I went through the thread and I saw your test-fit pictures. We are looking for finished/installed pics and hopefully a few that are better than the one above.

Can you also show a picture or two of how the shield underneath doesn't match up?

It wouldn't be any different than ordering them from a dealer at that point in time

What is the difficulty of this install? What do you need to have to do it? Are instructions included?

Looking to save a couple hundred bucks.

That looks awesome. I want to do this.

I read through the thread...do we know what is different about the sports package on the E90 that would make this not fit?

Just the air ducts on the bottom. If you get the fogs, just take the ducts out. You don't need them. I have them n because I have no fogs and I need them to make the bumper look normal haha

You should have a few additional pieces with the msport front. Fender liner pieces underbody adapter and a few more. You could swap with someone that has stock front end pieces and get money on top of it.

Personally, I would keep an msport bumper over this. This m3 rep is beautiful but you can never beat oem quality.

Great thread. Anyone have any updates? Pics? Words of caution?

Also if anyone knows has the e90 LCI sport part numbers for the ducts and fender liners, I could see that as being MASSIVELY helpful for those that don't know what is needed.

Matt - Do you see anyway that another version or part would help to align the screws - my obsessiveness would have an issue with empty screw holes...

thanks!

for the bumper, you need to have an LCI non sport according to ebay, since the sport/mtec bumper has different fender liners and etc.

I did end up getting longer screws that I used. but I didnt screw then all way in so that the bumper would get deformed. It's just there for peace of mind. I also have that front lip so I cant even see the bottom of the bumper anymore
