M3 Rep instal now car wont start?

Hey Guys,

Today I installed an M3 rep bumper on my 08 e92 335i. After installation, I turned the car on to see if the new fog lights that came with the bumper turned on after being connected. With no luck, I figured they might need to be coded or something. Anyway, went to try and turn the car on to move it, and it did not want to turn over. Should i have unplugged the battery when i was unhooking the fogs? Anyone have this happen? Some insight would be helpful!
Thanks!

Sounds like the battery discharged. There's literally no other way you could mess up a bumper swap to impact your car from starting lol.

Yeah idk how it happened since nothing in the car was left on while doing it. Either way I got a buddy to jump it and voila

You probably didn't balance the kidney grills right, #1 rule in bumper replacement

You must have forgot to fill the blinker fluid. Won't get far without that!
