Fitting M sport Bumper

Hi, I have bought an Msport front bumper to go onto my 2006 E90 318d, just wondering if anyone else has done this upgrade and what it entails??

When I changed my standard bumper for Msport on my E46 I had to change the brake duct air vents, and a couple of mounting brackets, just want to know if anything like this is involved on the E90???

hi mate

from my experience of changing my SE to MSport on the E92, it involved the following:

New Airducts
New Black Grilles (lower ones, not kidneys ... they dont come with the bumper!)
New Fog lights
New Fog Light Housing & Brackets

Worth noting: Modification of the undertray is nessesary , cutting and making new holes for the bolts to line up with the MSport bumper etc

hope that helped, i dont imagine the E92 will be too different to the E90 in regards to parts required.

Ive looked on eurocar parts website and they dont seem to sell M parts, and theres nothing on ebay, I think I got all my stuff from cooks ferry for my E46

Where did you get your new brake ducts?? Did you just get them from the dealers?? If so how much were they??
