Cheapest M3 pp bumper ever + greyhound shipping

Hello everyone,

While on eBay USA I came across a listing for an M3 bumper, this one is made out of PP (not duraflex or fiberglass) and instead of coming with fog lights, it seems like it comes with ducts (or nothing at all) which is exactly what I am looking for. However the shipper only uses Greyhound Parcel Express, which, from my understanding, means he puts the bumper in a Greyhound bus and the bus leaves the bumper at the terminus.

I know we have a Greyhound terminus in Montreal and I am wondering whether or not it will make it across the border to Canada. The guy also lists 60$ USPS shipping which is a very good price IMO for domestic shipping, which means I could get it shipped to Freeport Forwarding and pick it up right across the border. However it is very difficult to reach the seller by mail.

What would you guys do? Do you think the bumper will make it across the border to my local Greyhound station?

Thank you

That bumper also doesn't come with the center lower mesh.

I doubt it will make it across the border.

Careful, I had an issue with my supplier from the USA, because he offered me M3 style bumpers with the air ducts, which ended up being the M3 bumper just without the fog lights. Meaning there is just the hole, not the air ducts. I complained and got them to ship me the fogs and grills so I could actually sell them.

Also if it does not come with the center large grill, then you are going to be spending money trying to get these parts.

On a side note, I hear shipping greyhound is the cheapest, and people from the west coast want me to ship via greyhound.

But I believe boarder patrol will hit you with fees when crossing.

You would have to calculate the cost of buying air ducts, the center grill, and the hit on boarder taxes versus the price they are offering you before you make a decision.

Actually it does come with the center grille. And for those wondering, I got a reply from the seller and he does offer 60$ shipping via Fed Ex. I plan on purchasing the M3 ducts so that'll probably be another 130$ or so from ECStuning...

BTW: Havoc thanks for your input. Can you please PM me the price of an M3 rep bumper with no fog lights please? Shipped to Montreal. Thanks!

Cool, as long as you looked into it

So that's $300 US + $60 US for shipping plus $130 US for the air ducts? =

Around $500 Canadian plus waiting time, but you get the ducts. Not bad, as long as everything goes smoothly during the delivery.

Just one last thing, now that I can see the auction. Looks like it has PDC holes in the front. Interesting this is exactly what my supplier was selling me for a cheaper price. Might want to ask if you are getting PDC holes or not. StreetXtreme charges $150 to fill, sand, prime the holes if you dont want them, before painting the bumper. I bet other shops will charge even more.

Post up some pics after the install

FedEx will charge you tons for brokerage fees so careful. You will only see this after it gets to you and they request cod for taxes and fees.

Anyone know of a good source for the air ducts?
