I've seen a couple of e90's with m3 rep bumpers in my personal opinion it doesn't look that good especially when people only do the front I'm a firm believer of going all the way in terms of the body or don't start at all.

The stories about Mstyle are old news.

They are actually very good.

You can ask Achu from this site and myself who have spent thousands with them and have have always come back for more.

I got my full suspension setup, my 1m bumper, custom splitters etc... ALL from them.

Give them a go. Call up and request James, and say Josh sent you. He is very friendly.

People just bashing companies from old experiences and worse of all... hear'say. Companies, services etc... do change as they get older and more experienced. Try them... and remember, you are not just buying a product, you are buying customer services, which has improved a lot.

I've heard mixed things too. All the negatives seem to be about emailing their customer service. Anyone that's phoned them or actually been in to see them face to face says they're spot on!

Obviously you would disagree as you have done it. If you read what I said in my personal opinion i dont like m3 rep bumpers look nothing like the real thing . No disrespect intended

None taken... We all have our views... Not quite sure what you mean it looks nothing like the real thing however... The whole point is it does look like the real thing, just not as wide.

I like it anyway I will be at Gaydon if your about e90
