Fitting an Msport Rear Bumper on an SE

Hi..

Had my rear bumper damaged in a hit and run

Got a quote from a BMW approved bodywork place in Harold Wood: 1000 parts included

Managed to source a used rear msport bumper (mine is an SE) from Ebay and looking to get this fitted. Does anyone know any decent bodywork place near Romford?

Thanks

Cabot's workshop on Hoe Street, Walthamstow/Leyton

Saw a brand new 7 series parked outside with the back end totally smashed in, few days later saw the same car like new - they might be worth a shot

I'd recommend Sira motors in Barking.

You will also need the bumper side mounts and diffuser.

Thanks for all the replies.

Mstyle does seem to be the best option for me and the closest

Garage List
I would only consider fitting the the full kit to an SE rather than just the rear bumper - it will affect it come re-sale time as an incorrect back bumper to me would just cry of a quick-fix repair job after a shunt, and would make me walk away from it.

At least if the whole kit is fitted, it could have just been done to enhance the looks, rather than hide a self-repaired shunt!

Good point...The thing is I like the aerokit front bumper that I have...Been thinking about changing my standard rear bumper but was not keen on the aerokit one as i think it looks daft on the 330's...It does look good on the dual exhausts though...

Austerity measures ATM also influencing my decision ...

Breakers again or even BMW if youre stuck.

If you do a search of the main site there are several posts that have the schematic with the part numbers.
