I replaced my 2011 e90 rear factory bumper with M-tech sports. I did some research about the DIY replacement & the M-tech bumper requires to replace the bumper guides as well because the lower side tabs location are not the same. I don't know the difference with 2006 models but I hope this helps....

bumper guides 51127906505 & 51127906506
diffuser(non-turbo) 51127906504

It would be better if the 2006 models will not require you to change the bumper guides. The painful part is once you removed the bumper & some hard works, then you will find out that you really need to replace the guides. The best way before you start removing everything is to buy the bumper guides from your local BMW dealership parts department & ask them to match Tischer's price to get some discounts. Now, if you found out that you don't really need the guides then return it to them. At least you will save some time hitting a dead end.
