Hey guys, I am planning to do this mod too. I just ordered my m3 replica bumper without the fog light for my 08 e92 328i. However, I have two questions at the moment if someone could help me out with his.

1) What do you guys do with the fog light plug? Since we won't be plugging any fog lights if we do the fog light delete. Do you just tape it somewhere else within the bumper?
2) I heard that the replica duct will need some trimmings to fit the brake duct or the oil duct for the 335i models, does this require on a 328i model as well? Or the intake duct won't affect me since I do not have the brake duct ?

Would appreciate if someone could help me out!!
Thanks

yes...Here's mine. I used OEM m3 e92 ducts and had to modify them to fit my factory oil cooler on the passanger side and the the inner fender liner on the driver side. *measure twice, cut once*

Just hide the plug. Also to avoid an error code have the fogs coded off. Not sure on your ducts. You'll most likely have to trim them. I know I did for my e92 335.

What did/can you use to code them off?

I know this super old but where did you get the ducts that are made for m3 rep?

I got them from an eBay seller who sold the bumpers, he would sell the ducts separately. But I heard that a while back he stopped selling, not sure what happened. I would personally just find some sellers who carry the bumper and message them.

Can the OEM wheel well liners attach to the M3 bumper or must they be removed?

I got my air ducts for my m3 rep on ebay, they were made to fit the m3 rep bumper, they fit perfect without any trimming. This was about two years ago but I imagine they are still on ebay.

Who did you buy them from or how can we search for someone who sells them? I emailed quite a few sellers and no one had them or knew what I was talking about. I'm just going to buy OEM M3 and modify since no one has been able to provide any help besides ask sellers.

Did you search ebay? took me less than a minute, I noticed more than a few sellers that sell the m3 rep bumper with air ducts.
here are two of them:

Yes, as I said in my last post I emailed a bunch of sellers, but for some reason I couldn't find any ebay auctions for the m3 bumper with the ducts. Thank you for the links, much appreciated!

Do lips/spoilers made for the OEM M3 bumper fit on this replica bumper?

No they do not.

So I emailed Icon nd they said they won't sell the air ducts seperately. And the other company on ebay cant accept messages because they have too many. So SOL there.
