LCI M sport front bumper

I just bought a used M sport front bumper. How can I tell if it is a genuine M sport bumper or a replica M tech front bumper? Also it did not come with the lower grilles or fog lights. Where is the best place to purchase those besides the dealership?

I guess it is a real oem m sport bumper. I just test fitted it, and nothing on the bottom lined up. Bottom engine shield, brake ducts, and inner front fenders will need to be changed. Read thru a lot of other threads saying don't need all that, just need the grilles, fog lights, and fog light brackets. I was hoping that was the case for me. Maybe LCI is different.

Air Ducts depend on what option your car has. I didnt need to change fender linings on mine the wholes didnt lign up put just made new holes and moved the fasteners.

Belly splash guard lined up normally.

I'm guessing the OEM M sport bumper is different from the replica M tech bumper. I could not get the bottom of the bumper pushed in because it was hitting the lower air ducts and lower shield.
