Dilemma...need help fast!!!

Ok so my car is at the shop right now and they want me to come take a look at it...it is a 2008 BMW 335XI pre lci....i bought an mtech pre lci front bumper from Xsthetic Motorsports and the shop is saying they can not get the front bumper to fit due to the Front Core Support not allowing it....anybody that has done this change can help me with this? I know this swap has been done a lot and I can't find anywhere anything about running into this issue

the front bumper


my current front bumper

Is it because it's hitting the foam absorber or the metal bumper support?

ok well i found out that it is the lower part of the front core support...which is plastic...so the only way to get it to work is to shave that down (which i pray they can cut enough to get it to fit) or order an mtech core support...ordering it would cost 280$ and then labor to install it so please pray that they will be able to shave it enough and I can get my car back tomorrow all mtech'd up!!!

Still curious if anybody else can add anything to this about if they had to shave their core support or replace it???

its probably due to the bumper being a cheaper rep than the reps/ oem that others use.

I didn't have those problems, but my bumper was OEM. Only needed that belly pan adapter and had to change the fog light connector in order to use m-sport fogs. I guess reps are different.
