E92....What front bumpers fit?

So I need a new one for my coupe due to the previous owner dragging across every parking curb he saw.

Seems impossible to find the coupe bumper without going new OEM.

I know from past experience with other makes that other trims or models usually cross fit but have no experience with BMW.

Would a sedan bumper work? What other options do I have?

Any help is appreciated!!!!

Thanks in advance!

OEM front bumper is about $500. You might as well upgrade to an M-sport or M3 replica for that price. Not sure if sedan bumper would fit, but they don't look same...

Look at the vendors on the site. There's over a dozen options. You need an e92/93 front bumper. E90 (sedan) don't fit. Do you have pre-lci or LCI. They're different.

There are a few different options for E92 (Depending on what year your E92 is).

2007-2010 Pre LCI
  • M3 Style
  • OEM M Tech / Replica M Tech
  • Amuse Style

2011-2013 LCI
  • M4 Style
  • OEM M Tech / Replica M Tech

E90 Sedan bumpers won't fit unless you changed your headlights, hood, fenders, etc.

You guys answered my question perfectly. Thank you!

It frustrating because all I want in the OEM version in aftermarket if need be to get the car back in shape. Later I was going to add a lip. My goal was to buy from one of the companies that pre-paint them for you so all I have to do is installed it. I haven't found one of them that has the coupe version! Ugh.

Unless there are any other options that haven't been mentioned it looks like I'm going to have to go with one of the options you all mentioned or back with OEM.

Just trying to save a buck on the front bumper to focus on the fun stuff like POWA! lol

BTW its pre-lci I suppose. I don't know what LCI means but it is an 07.

I have a similar question and after researching I've only confused myself more.

I have a 09 335i E92 and want to replace my stock front bumper with the genuine BMW mtech, msport, whatever the actual term is.

Anyway, is this all that I will need to swap bumpers?...

Yeah, thats all you need besides getting it painted. i wouldnt go oem though because of the hefty price. I'd get it aftermarket from a reputable vendor. They will also fit your car very well for half the price.

In your avatar you've put down '07 E92 which means that you've got an E92 Pre-LCI.

Thanks. Any place in particular that you can recommend? I'm just overly concerned with a clean fitment including all lines so that's why I was considering oem.

If you want a lip then get the MTech bumper because there are a lot more options for it. M3 rep at least to me is aggressive enough without a lip. But if you want a lip then you have very few options to choose from. And just make sure it's from Taiwan since it has perfect fitment.

Yeah **********s, ecs tuning, jgmods are all good companies that provide bumpers that fit well and are cheaper than oem. I'm personally about to buy an m3 rep soon. I've been debating that with an mtech but decided on m3 cause its more aggressive looking and not as plain as the mtech. Either way both bumpers are great

I don't know why the first company's name I put didn't come up

I think it's because they are not a forum supporter.

M-Tech reps for my son's E92 fit perfectly and we got them from jgmods. They do come unpainted but are primed and ready for paint.

How much did you pay for paint if you don't mind me asking. I know jgmods offers a paint service.

We had the whole car painted so I am not sure but I think a few hundred is the right number.
