Looks a good fit... I dont have headlamp washers so no issue there... Your car is the same colour as mine, and looks sharp... Now if the rain will bugger off...

Finally a dry day, and I have it fitted!

Was a bit of a fiddle, and its a tight, but good fit... I am currently ill with the flu, so here are some rather crappy phone pics... Will get the slr out when better...

The ebay shop had lots of stuff, but I guess you could just ask them? Pretty good on the communication front... And delivery, paint and product price was unbelievable!

Looks great Boon thanks for sharing. Considering one of these front bumpers myself I have an SE at the moment, would I need to alter the fogs that I already have or will they fit into those grilles fine?

You need new fogs... They are the e90 mtech ones, or they are the same ones for the 5 series e60... New replicas are about 60... Got oem 2nd hands from ebay

Hi this if my first post so apologies for not introducing my self in proper section yet but I will soon.
I've changed the rear quarters on my e90 to oem m3 ones,I was gonna do the full front end but it's not a straight forward as I first thought and parts are proving a pain to get second hand,so I was thinking of just putting one of these bumpers on and replica front wings and bonnet but been advise that it will look a bit silly? Does anybody else think this ? I thought it would look ok
Thanks for any helpfull replies

Its hard to say what will look cheap... The m3 replica front end looks great IMHO... but I know there are variations of these that range in quality.

I don't know what type of car you have, and whether its going to look good or not... maybe start a thread with some pics?

There are also some threads already on here with 335d to 'M3' conversions which look good, but are a lot of work and are really only worth it if your car is worth it...

thanks for reply

car is a 320d e90 4door 56 plate ive sourced a carbon replica bonnet and a quality replica bumper my only concern is ive been told the m3 rep front end is much narrower than a oem me front end so wont suit the reat quaters ive had done? but looking at some google images of replicas i think iot might be ok,
anybody got any opinions?
ps will post pics soon

Hi B, I've spoke to the guy, whos selling the bumpers near me I'm going round tonight. Hopefully get a good deal on spoilers too.

He said he was on here but got banned for trying to sell the bumpers and a couple of fake beats he had. Thats admin for ya.

Anyway I'll let you know how I get on.

Look what I've just bought I got the bumper for 200, M3 spoiler for 20 and roof spoiler for 40. I'm over the moon. Really pleased with the bumper quality is supberb not fussed on ABS stuff had it before on my E60.

He'll said he give us some discount and he did. He's got a bumper on his 320d same colour as mine, looks nice.

Also said he'll help fit it with me if I do it myself. top bloke

Now just need some fogs and to get it sprayed.

Not sure I just asked whats your best price and he came back with that. Pretty dam reasonable if you ask me. I did'nt even argue.

I'm quite please tbh I've been after a decent quality bumper for awhile.
