Smile My new M3 Bumper on e90

After way to long of figuring out what I wanted to do to my front, I ended up getting the M3 Replica bumper for my e90.

I purchased this http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/E90-M...#ht_1406wt_941

It was a little scary, buying off of ebay for something such as this. However, I had a eBay coupon and eBay Bucks and made a "offer" of $325. I ended up paying in TOTAL $387.50 Shipped to my door. Incredible.

I had test fitted it before I had it painted and WOW, for a aftermarket bumper this thing is top notch. It had absolutely no fitment issues, you just have to either solder the old wires from the fogs to the new one or buy a H8-Ballast conversion wire such as this http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...#ht_2931wt_941

I dropped it off for paint yesterday and It was done by 5 today, I put it on in about 2 hours. I would say you definitely have to be crafty to get this thing on. Such as using different screws as the old ones strip out, and keep moving it until it fits as you want it too.

Anyways, here are the results Arctic metallic is a very neat color, I believe I am the only one with this bumper painted in Arctic too

Very NICE. Looking at the second pic I was like "Why the hell did he paint it Montego?, then I realized it was just the lighting.

Once you get the whole thing on, try unscrewing the top 4 torx screws and pulling the bumper out slightly and screwing them back in.

I had a freak out with the paint! Arctic is the weirdest color, it looks completely different in all types of lighting.
