Had bad experiences with them with my e46 in the past. Personally do not trust them, and do NOT let them paint/install the part for you if they offer. (Which they usually do.) Fitament took some work to get it to fit properly. Not OEM quality plastic.

However, their source for the e46 parts could be completely different than their e90/e92 stuff, so take my comment as a grain of salt.

I was curious about these guys as well since I was searching around for a Hamann front lip and came across their ebay ad. Did a quick google search using 'review extremeparts.ca' and in general the reviews aren't good.

I would avoid these guys, I had contacted them prior to even having E90 parts on their website, as I had heard they were selling E90 bumpers back then.

I wouldn't trust them, they seemed sketchy to me.

I will see if I can get a group buy organized for parts in the GTA with someone else...stay tuned!!

Really? That's good to know actually. Maybe they are ok then if its the same replica bumper you can get from any location.

Did you go pick it up yourself?

Side skirts = garbage, they don't line up flush against front wheel well and the rear wheel alignment is retarded, they are sunken in about 1 full cm so you need to stick a wedge in the back to push it forward, but then it doesn't line up properly anyway and it starts to peel off the paint because the plastic is in a constant state of stretch - garbage.

Also, don't allow them to paint anything for you. If even a little tiny particle touches the paint it rips the paint right off. Very weak clearcoat, after your first drive on the highway your parts will be covered in tiny white paint chips.

If you get anything from them, DO NOT let them paint it.

Front bumper is ok. It fits well on the e90's (somewhat acceptable) and on the e92 the front lines up decently, but where it connects to the fender you will have to pull and stretch to make the gap not look so bad. You can get away with the gaps on a black car if you don't mind 8/10 fitment, but on a white car it will look disgusting.

Rear bumper is pretty bad, doesn't line up with the body lines of the car, it leaves gaps underneath the tail light area if you use the clips, I broke off all the mounting clips and then used other methods to try holding it in place. It still looks bad and looks like a half-assed fibreglass bodykit on a 92 hathback. Once again on a white car this will be a disaster, on a black car it will look like your bumpers loose and kinda falling off, but at night no one can tell.

As for diffusers, no diffusers fit their replica bumper because the spacing of the diffuser tabs is different so that's a huge downfall too.

When I contacted them about fitment, they insulted me, called me an idiot and told me not to work on cars if I don't know anything about cars and to bring my car in and let the professionals deal with it.

When they tried to install the parts they couldn't get them to fit at all, I mean they couldn't even line up the screw holes it was pretty funny to watch.
They then said that some bumpers are stored close to some machine after being made and that the heat probably de-formed the plastic before it fully hardened. I LOL'ed at this because these come from china, they don't manufactur them and I'm sure they have no idea about the characteristics of polyprop/polyurethane.
