Need Suggestions for a Bumper (Maybe hood too)!!!~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I think I have decided on this hood

http://www.jgmods.com/index.php/e92-...335i-328i.html

What do you guys think would look good - bumper wise and that is instock most places. I really liked the M-Tech Style Front Bumper but I am trying to keep costs down a bit. Not sure what do you guys think? I am open on hoods too!

Pic of my car before



Pic as of now

It was a small fender bender, any ideas on the bumper with that hood?

With that hood, you've got to have an aggresive bumper like the M3 rep with lower lips.

And think about it, anytime you park out side and there is percipitation, its going to goinside your engine pay...... Not only are you not gaining any functionality but i think you are making things worse.... just my two cents

Sorry for the brevity posting via mobile device.

They would make a hood like that if water could just drop right into the engine bay?

Does it look like the hood would have problems with rain or snow?
