Mod bargains, JGmods, Modmy3, eBay...

So many vendors with decent bumpers. Just go for PU or PP material. Stay away from fiberglass or FRP.

I have that exact setup (have a thread on it in this forum as well)

I got my Mtech rear through insurance. If you like the diffusor my car has, its the BMW Performance/335is diffusor. Some tabs need to be trimmed off to make it work but it fits fine. There are several good options out there.

I got my M3 rep from ModMy3. Great service and the bumper is made of the same material as the stock one.

If you want to do the OEM ducts you have to order them separately. I thought the fog lights that came with the bumper looked cheap so i went that route. Be advised though you either have to dremmel off most of the ducting or do some heavy modification to make it work.

I'd go JGmods instead of khoalty. LOTS of good feedback from them on here.

+1 for JGMods. Front and rear bumpers on mine are from JGMods and I am very pleased with fitment and customer service.

Dealer, through an Insurance claim. I would definitely go with JGMods or ModMy3 if i were doing it out of my own pocket.

Just saw your post in one of my pic threads hahaha -- sorry for the slow response.

And if you go to the JGMods Mtech bumper thread (or website), it's actually my car on the rear bumper shots (when I was still in Texas and my S/N was e90Elvis). That's how happy I was with the fitment and the customer service.

Ok thanks alot. My only issue is I like the stock msport diffuser more than the one that's on that site. Are they easy swap?

Definitely an easy swap. I didn't use the one that came with my bumper. Instead, I got the OE performance diffuser set-up (that's what is on the picture on the site and not the diffuser that came with it). I honestly don't even remember the one that came with it, so you might PM Jay or Grant and see if the have a pic they can send you of the one that comes with the bumper.

Ok cool thanks again for all the info it helped alot. I'm also looking for rims what do you think are a good set up that looks clean and not too aggressive or over the top? I like the 219m M3 rims but I'm afraid there Guna be too beefy and too aggressive. What would you go with? I want to stick with stock oem bwm wheels forsure tho.

I think for straight non-M E9x stockers, 162's and 230's are the best looking (and spacers make them look even better). If you start looking outside of those, 219m's are a nice choice too. Obviously I'm partial to 95's, but I think Mpars (style 37 I think?) and 89's would look good on an E90, but you're probably going to want to roll your fenders for any of those. Anyway, just hit the pics and find what you like look-wise, then if you need help with fitment there are a ton of people on here that can tell you how to make it work.

The bumpers comes with stock style diffuser not performance. I just received mine less than a month ago.
