Allow me to attempt a translation:

"Hi guys! I want a 1M style front bumper for my E92 3 Series. I ordered one and received it. It is fiberglass and pre-cut. However, I was told by the seller I have to drill my own holes and he says my OEM grills won't fit."

Now maybe someone else can figure out whether he wants assistance with this bumper or wants recommendations for a different one.

All of the 1M bumpers look like shit in person except for the LTMW one.

LTMW is bucks. It uses 2 oem bumpers and people have complained about the seams. Durajunk fiberglass dont fit. I have the kbd. It's like 1500 less that LTMW but requires some fitting and work to look right. It's polyurethane, not fiberglass or polypropylene like oem. But after paying a body shop to do it right cheaper with good results.

It's getting done as we speak. The shop said it needed a lil trim to gap right and that it sagged a lil under the lights so they reinforced that area so it would be straight. When I get it back I'll post pics. They're doing horizontal m6 led fogs and a vorsteiner CSL trunk lid. Respraying the rear bump and polishing headlights too.

We had a local guy who did the same with the poly one. It still looks bad IMO up close and after the bodywork costs it's just not worth it IMO. But I guess that depends on the bodyshop and how motivated and skilled they are.

Yes. These guys are going the extra mile. Fit wouldnt be the best without their work. But the bumper cost and their extra work still costs hundreds less than the LTMW version.

I have a 1M bumper being painted this week also.

I test fit it myself and did some small mods, but it's pretty good.

Made from Polyurethane, hopefully comes out well.

Polyurethane is the KBD one I have I believe. I don't know of any others. Did you test fit?

I have the LTMW 1M front bumper and all I can say is the fitment is perfect, and the seam is flawless.

Mine came from china direct, with a CF lip, is for e92 LCI which is rare as hell, ive been looking for PU LCI 1M for over a year.

Yeah I test fit it, its pretty good, I had to fill in one of the mounting holes on on side and re drill a new one as there location they drilled cause the edge to stick out a small amount.

Other than that its good. came with awesome hand made brake ducts too.

If I lived in the USA I would just buy this and cal it a day, but to ship this to Australia doubles the price.

Even in the USA, my KBD is $1200 painted, tweeted, and installed, and the LTMW is $2100 shipped.

You get what you pay for, The one good thing about the LTMW is that I all I had to do Is get it painted and install it with no modifications needed.
