Sorry about the confusion...I was being a smartass.

The top pic of my car (daytime) is the Mtech OEM bumper...and my newest acquisition.

I ALSO have the DTM front bumper...its more like the M5...it is the bumper depicted on the night time picture. I've had this one for some time, but I had to repair it after a mishap on the 405 freeway...a pipe won. I now have both bumpers...but the Mtech is my daily bumper. I will swap it out and put on the DTM M-style bumper for special occasions. (Bimmerfest fo sho!)

For differences...look at the front bottom grilles and fog lights. The picture you posted is a photoshop...so its not a real bumper at all. But the DTM bumper is a close version of that idea.

I hope that clears things up once you look back at the two pics.

Mtech kit is not ABS plastic, it's made of Polyurethane, different type of plastic, more flexible, ABS is hard plastic and will breakoff upon impact (same material as the plastic on the grill) OEM Mtech FTW

Can you enlighten us where you got that from? That's killer pricing, did you get it used? Was the paint baked?

You can come out anytime...don't need to wait until you mod!

Plus...you can see things first hand and decide what you like or dislike ---so that you can put your modding ideas to work!

First I get the m kit from the dealer at wholesale pricing. Then I get it painted at a shop which I have been dealing with for the last 4 yrs.
