Why are our bumper selections so crappy?

I always hear about the Aero and Mtech bumpers... Maybe it's the fact that I have the sedan but my 09' 335 e90 seems to have a very small selection of bumpers front and back to choose from.

I love the rear Mtech bumper since I'm alpine white and I love the black around my exhausts.

Question is does anyone have a good link with all my options? I saw a YouTube video of what looked like an Mtech bumper but had cut outs (cutouts look like they came that way) for quad exhaust which I'd love to eventually do

Thats a bit unfair to compare.

The Z was THE tuner car to get for the better part of a decade. Aftermarket support for that car was ridiculous.

The e90 is a luxury sedan with sporty features. Its naturally gonna have less options.

oh. i didnt know this thread was about the choices available for aftermarket body kits. i would've never guessed that that would be an issue with bmw owners... but then again, i forgot used e9x's go for less than a new civic now.

Yeah, why do you need a bunch of tacky, ghetto-ass, ricer bumper options when the OEM options from BMW are so sexy?

Get an mtech rear and then there are tons of diffuser options to choose from if you really want it to be a little personalized.

Not feeling the rears on both the Z look so aftermarket.

Now Game has it right. This is the perfect front end I love it on my car especially with the added splitter underneath the lip this year

That Zele rear has some serious potential! Looks so much like a 911 turbo with that bumper. Just needs the edges tamed down and maybe some factory styled black honeycomb mesh in the vents(assuming they would actually be possible to make functional.

This wasn't suppose to turn into a ricer bumper bashing. Simple question, asking for some links since I can't seem to find a lot of variety. I'm even open to some good lip links.

Love those Nissan bumpers!

Not really..you have:

1. M3 Bumper,
2. LCI M-Sport
3. Pre-Lci M-tech
4. Performance Bumper

And a wide selection of lips and splitter to go with it

For the rear there's

1. M3
2. M-tech (bunch of diffusers)
3. Performance (I think E92 only)

We may not have many bumper options but we have more lip/diffusor options. There are quite a bit of choices out there but they are garbage. IMO the kits by companies like Rieger, Hamaaan, and Kerscher look like shit
