is there a full bumper kit?and whats m-tech/or aerokit?

I searched and could not find an anwser, sorry.
I dont know if tis jsut me but all the front bumper kits, dont look that good. I mean I like them, but I jsut dont like how they all look like they are jsut stuck on there(which they are).
I think a full bumper kit would be much more asthetically pleasing? anyone know of one?
Also dumb question, is there a difference between a m-tech kit, and a aero kit?

Hmm.....go pick up an accessories brochure from your local dealership and you can see the M-Tech kit or you can go to the master E90 color thread to check out the kit as well. Also there's a search button that you can use. Just type in Alpine White M-Tech and thou shall see.

There's no aerokit for the E90, only for E92.

I did search, and I didnt find the answer for what I asked, I know what it looks like I jsut didnt know if there was a difference, and I didnt find anything that says if there is a full front bumper on anyones kit.
so once again, is there a full bumper in any kit?
is there a difference between Aero kit, m-tech kit, and m-sport kit, or are they different names for different models or what?

You kidding me, right? or are you just too lazy to hit search?

Hamann also make a full front replacement, so does Rieger

Breyton, AC Schnitzer, Hartge make front lip add ons

If you don't understand the previous answer, here you go again. THERE IS NO (OEM) AEROKIT AVAILABLE FOR THE E90. THE ONLY AVAILABLE FULL BODY KIT FROM BMW IS THE M-TECHNIK KIT (AKA M-SPORT, M-TECH, ETC)

maybe I was not clear on my question I dont know? I saw that post, I dont see anywhere that it says its a full bumper, nor do I see where it says anything about mtech vs msport vs aero?
you say there is no oem aero kit, but on the bmw site its a "Aerodynamic kit" so how can there not be one. now I assume that is the same thing you are refering to a m tech m sport>?
so once again the search did not yield results for my questions. you link didnt either unless its burried way in there somewhere.

You have an E90, not an E92. The M-Tech or M-Sport kit for the E90 is also known as the BMW M-Aerodynamic kit and available at your local dealership as an accessory. I'm not sure where DFW is.

The M-Tech front bumper and rear bumpers for the E90 are complete bumpers. The front bumper includes a set of new foglights that is shaped differently and uses different bulbs (9006). It also comes with an additional plastic undercarriage that extends the existing one. Also included with the kit are side skirts. The rear bumper comes with a detachable diffuser and plastic insert that goes between.

That's the exact reason why you need to pick up an accessories brochure, which would tell you what options you have for aerodynamic kit and explain what is included in the M-Technik Aerodynamic Kit.

Now, back to the M-Tech kit, the pictures shown in the previous link obviously showed that it is a full replacement front bumper (notice the difference between the foglights in that picture versus your car's?). The M-Technik kit includes a FULL FRONT bumper replacement with foglights (which you asked for), a set of side skirts, and rear bumper with optional carbon fiber diffuser.

The AEROKIT that is commonly referred here is the Aerodynamic Kit that is available from BMW for the E92 Coupe.

Thanks again, KSFrogman.

I've literally searched for days on Google and e90post looking for info on the OEM aero add-ons. The search terms "aero", "e90", "bumper", "rear", and "MTech" have not been kind to me. Realoem.com is only good for part #'s (if you know to search 'Europe' as your location). Everyone who sells these pieces online have very limited pics, including Tischer, Crown, BMWNA, Pacific.

I feel like I'm stranded on an island here in middle TN.

You can distinctively tell which ones are full bumper replacements and which ones arent... hope that helps...
