Pre-LCI Mtech front conversion help

So, i just bought a Pre-LCI Mtech Front Bumper for my Pre-LCI E90, but i was unaware of the other needed parts for the conversion (not including the parts actually ON the bumper, i.e. lower grills, fogs, etc.).

I was informed i need certain left and right guides and perhaps a different underbody panel to make it fit like OEM? Is there anyone here that can fill me in on all the parts required and their part numbers to make this conversion as seamless as possible?

(i did a few different kind of searches, but i didn't find exactly what i was looking for [part numbers])

Thanks to those of you who can assist!

This is for LCI... would this apply to my PRE-LCI conversion though?

anyone know the part number for the Headlamp Washer Covers for an Mtech front bumper? I'm a little unsure if this part [Item #2] will fill the spot where the headlamp washers would be... my old bumper doesn't even have the holes where the headlamp washers go so i have to order new ones...

??

Hey did you complete this? I'm undergoing this process right now so just wanted to confirm the parts that are needed. I got the entire kit so I think I have most things but there is also this part number: 51748044594 which is for the front right air duct. All the guides I've seen have stated that only the right side is needed but this doesn't make sense to me? We don't need to have the left as well?

I ended up trading up for an M3 rep instead. But, i know the parts you are talking about and i would install the air duct as well. Technically, neither air duct is necessary - all they do is channel the air flow directly over your brakes... the only time you really need to slam on the brakes to make them hot enough is when you're going from 70+ to 0mph and you need to stop in a hurry.
It also looks more professional to have everything. ^__^

Yeah I have the right one but I can't even find a part number for the left. I guess I'll just let them install the right since it's the one that is listed. Good to know about them not being absolutely necessary thanks.
