M3 Cracked bumper - best place in the GTA to fix?

Hi guys,

My bumper has cracked It is E92 M3 OEM bumper so getting an aftermarket one is not an option. I want to have it repaired professionally. The crack is on the bottom passenger side of the bumper, and it is hanging low so it is taped at the moment. Some of the paint around the crack has been removed as well. It wont be very visible. I assume they can mold it back on and repaint a small area?

I could not take a pic but the illustration below shows the extent of damage - the red is a crack / gap



If you have any recommendations / estimated cost info please let me know.

Thanks for the info.

Lots of options...all pending on where you are from in the GTA.

If you are near Markham, I say my boys at StreetXtreme will take care of you. Contact Patrick at (905) 554-8628

Tell him your Nick's friend.


Otherwise, other options can be found in this thread:

Thanks Havoc. I am in the York Region area. Don't mean to badmouth StreetXtreme but they did a really poor job the last time I used them for repairing a body panel crack.

I did, and thank you. But that is for paint damage. I have a crack that needs to be molded back on.

I believe European Autobody does mold/body work as well. They are also used my Maranello BMW.

Have not heard any complaints from them. Might be a tad more expensive than other places, but they do a stellar job.

Maybe call them and ask.

That's really strange, no way that work should be quoted for that much.

Who did you talk to? John? Paul? Wondering how they came to that price.
