so if we opt to not use any fogs - that means not a single thing on the front of the car has to be trimmed? or even with no fogs something has to be trimmed?

^No idea honestly, since I didn't try without fogs. It does look like you might be able to get away with it since the clearance issues looked to be about 3 inches or so on the passenger side....

perhaps if they moved them more to the outer corners it would look better, to be more like the original mtech bumper.

does the bumper fit like stock? Does it still utilize ALL of the stock screws and bolts? Also, do the fender liners and under tray still match up? Anyone figure out about the m3 outer lower grills too?

No it will not.

The real M3 front is wider due to the flared fenders on the M3. Our cars do not have the flared fenders and this bumper was made to fit them.

It was posted in another thread that lips made for the true M3 front will NOT work with this bumper - even had a comparsion pic...

I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say that currently there are no lips that would fit as this is a custom bumper.

Company that makes the bumper would need to design lips to work...

No used a good friend who sprays cars for a living, and he didnt charge me (owed me a favor). The paint was color matched at a local paint shop.

Expect $200-300 at your local spray shop.

Fender line up and match, and all original mounting points still work.

hi,

with this bumper you have no problem with the engine cover under the car?
fit perfects on it?

because with OEM M-technik bumper this engine cover has to be change.

JLEVISW and **********s M3 bumper are the same ?

And with your M3 sideskirt, no problemes?

thanks a lot
