I'm currently on holiday, and the owner of the E92 which he was going to test fit it on also went on holiday! He should be back this Wednesday, so hopefully should have some feedback on fitting later this week or next week.

I am planning to come back in Jan or Feb, so the final painted results won't be available until then. But at least you'll know how the fitment is

Just building up my new engine so transferring all my mods and good parts over. The RB turbos are in place and looking in good condition now and the same can be said for the Spec clutch and single mass FW. My car was subject to a recall last year so decided to keep my injectors and HPFP which was replaced shortly after.

You suffered the belt issue which resulted in you needing a new engine right?

When my car went it for warranty work for oil leaks... i asked them to look for a squeeking in the engine bay.

They said the main belt had a massive split in it. They changed it (not under warranty as it is a maintenance item)...but is it true... that there is only one belt which does all the work? Was this the one belt you were talking about which perished and got sucked into your engine?

EDIT
This is the Serpentine belt right?

And by the way it cost me 220 inc vat from BMW... 40 for the part... the rest labout

Yep the serpentine belt got sucked into the front of the engine through the crank seal.

Good thing they replaced the belt as it is starting to get common now on all n5x engines. IMO belt life on these is on average 60k and should be changed before that.

180 labour just to change the aux belt??? Has the squeaking gone? Could be one of the pulleys or tensioners on the belt.

Anyone got around to fitting their 1m bumper yet? I tried mine the other day and it didn't seem to fit to well around the headlights. I didn't get a good chance to mess with it but it might need a fair bit of fettling and trimming to get it right.

Not yet idnan, still abroad but i'm hoping that a test fit will take place on a friend's car in a week or so.

What was the headlight area like? Was it quite bad or would it be quite easy to trim up to shape for a competent installer?

I'll take a pic on Sunday to show the issue I'm having. It's like the bumper isn't wide enough to fit around the headlights. Maybe the material it is made out of has sagged slightly?

Hmm that does sound worrying. A pic would be great

they all have terrible fitment like i originally said. A lot of body shop work required. You just need to find a bodyshop familiar with working with aftermarket kits etc...

You're right. It was always going to be a risk, but a calculated one as it was 550 cheaper than the M Style 1M bumper! Dips will be fitting it, so im not too worried!

Hopefully once a couple of us have got it done, we can advise on how much modification is required and the end result.

Thank you for chiming in alessandro.
Firstly your car looks great and thanks for confirming what i had said.

Obviously from the pic it looks good, but how does it look close up? Does it look OEM fitment?

Mstyle even had a very hard job getting mine to work. Costly, but i love the end result
