you can buy the bumper, get it painted, and installed at LTMW lol. Plus it's not a good idea to buy a bumper and get it painted before installing it (for fitment issues and paint blending issues)

Plenty of vendors here.

Save yourself money and install the bumper/hood yourself.

why would you buy all that stuff elsewhere, get it painted elsewhere and THEN come to them just for install? If anything, you got it backwards... you should just buy it from them painted already and then put it on yourself (if you know how to).

Im new to the forum and have the same questions. Trying to see what hood and bumper combo I want to go with. Im thinking the D2 painted with carbon vents and the Mtech rep from from JGmods.

Any thoughts?

Does anyone have a contact number for jgmods? I didnt see one on the website, and didnt get a reply to my email yet. I had questions about shipping and foglights.

Thanks,

-mark

Just wanted to shoot a quick update. Both my bumpers from jgmods came and I dropped them off at the body shop. The owner of the shop kept telling me there was absolutely no way they were replica and that they were oem. I kept telling him they were not oem and told him how much I paid and he was shocked. He said that they looked better quality than some oem bumpers he gets from some car manufacturers... Anyways here's a few quick pics. Highly recommend JGmods so far!

I agree... stay away from duraflex. I'd only go with PU as far as materials go.

Mod Bargains isnt to far from you...

Purchased Mtech front and rear along with M3 sides... pretty solid fitment.

check em out!

I ended up going to M0dbargains. only a few miles from me and they price match! So i got the m3 rep front bumper with fog lights for only 350 (price of the m3 rep on modmy3.com) and picked up same day. They also had an extra AW e92 hood in the shop and picked it up for a fair price.

Car is currently at Diamond Hills Collision Center in Diamond Bar. They were highly recommended by, and work closely with M0dbargains. They are very knowledgable, friendly, and cooperative with great prices on bodywork and paint. They also do group buys of 10 on repair/powder coating wheels. The 50 car shop bay looks more like a showroom. Pictures to come when i pick up the car.

Hmm. Looks good. It was my understanding these parts don't fit a sport model. Is that not true or do all the extra listed parts eliminate the issue? Does anyone know what these parts all add up to?
