E90 1m bumper LCI Jet black

Hey guys Im sure many here in the forum knows about the group buy regarding the e9x 1M bumper. I was one of the lucky ones to receive the said bumper and chin spoiler from Andrey, Mike or whatever the alias he uses currently.
I just recently picked up my car from Colemans Autobody, by the way many thanks to Tommy G and the staff there. They had my car since mid-January, you guys are probably wondering why it took so long. Well there are a few reasons:

1. I knew beforehand there is a lot of fitment issues regarding the bumper.

2. Since there are issues with the bumper, I wanted to make sure I get the bumper to the right person and I knew already about Tommy G rep here in the forum.

3. Have the body shop take their time on this project so everything goes perfectly.

4. Since I live in a townhouse with no garage in NJ my car was kept safe in the body shop garage, so it all worked out with all the winter storms we had in NJ.

Well I got to say the wait was well worth it, sorry for the not so good iphone picture.

pre-fitment pictures as you can see issues with bumper

A tad bulky, but as long as he is happy we are happy.

I am glad someone enjoyed the 1M bumper.

I initially did not ordered the bumper with the chin spoiler I paid for bumper with paint and install for another $300 because of the promise that it was 100% no issues. When the fiasco happen and fitment issues, I just wanted the bumper and did not trust him enough for the paint and install with my car and also getting a $300 refund. With the help from joe I ask for bumper and chin spoiler. At 1st I thought the same thing regarding the chin spoiler but now I actually like it.

Well great! It definitely looks good. I would just be so paranoid of damaging it.

Thanks for sharing

I was too, joe pm regarding how low his was and he can not install his, so I talked to Tommy G he said he he will check for clearance if there was an issue he will not install but he said I will have no problem just be a little carefull and not step on it...lol...Im also glad the side splitter makes the look more uniformed with the lip.

Thanks bro, the next thing is to do the rear. I was hoping someone would make a F80 rep rear bumper for the e9x but i think its not going to happen so most likely will go with mtech rear bumper

Honestly the E9x msport rear bumper is one of my favorites.

I like it better than any M car or the newer msports. You can't go wrong with it!

Yeah I pretty much drive more carefully since lowering my car. Im looking at some of the ramps at ecs or get some ply wood to carry around in the car so if anything to protect the spoiler if needed to be towed or something

Looks good, but that lip is way too big for a non Heavily modded car.
