Accident? ----> New Bumper!!

got into a fender bender in mid may (stop n go traffic got the best of me) and decided to take this chance and ugprade the bumper and do some mechanical repairs anyway, just got the car back today, gave it a quick half-assed wash and started taking photos in the driveway. decided to go with the m3 style front, and had to replace the grills as well. will post more when i meet up with my friend who just got his e92

I may not be yakev, but I can tell you with close to 100% certainly that it's literally a plug-and-play swap. No wire cutting, just pull out the old, pop in the new. And while they don't look as nice as the xenons, I think they're alright

How much did you pay for it? And roughly how much was the paint job?

+1; from everything I've read, completely plug and play. Big plus for you is you'll get angel eyes!!! And imo, they look pretty damn good, only second to LCI xenons.

You should pay no more than $400, and get $100 for yours.

one problem I ran into when having this bumper installed was that the foglight connectors didn't match The bumper. the bumper came with 9006 connectors and OEM is h11 I believe. the seller reimbursed me the ~$12 I paid on eBay for the new connectors so it wasn't a big deal. if possible make sure to clarify this before u buy a bumper like this online

The true replica came with the headlight sprayers which then could be deleted or not based on the decision of the owner.

This is a bumper that went onto a customer's car



Hope that answers the questions.
