Hi guys, i would like to please know if anyone has a VIS e92 pre-lci mtech front bumper on their e92, i am just curious as to know how the fitment of this bumper is.

Also, has anyone had any problems with this bumper since its made out of fiberglass?

Since your car is lowered, I'd avoid a fiberglass front bumper.

Never buy fiberglass man, the thing can always crack for whatever reason. Take my word for it, I lost $1100 to learn that lesson.
