Did you get your bumper painted by jgmods? I'm thinking about getting this bumper later this week from them. Excited!

your front end looks great now, the fitment looks perfect btw IMO you should vinyl your mirrors in gloss black, it'll look great

I had a local guy do mine. He also did my M3 side skirts.

Talk about perfect timing, I was just on the fence on whether to get this mtech bumper from JGMODS or just get replacement splitters, but after reading your review and seeing how good the fitment is, I just placed the order

Thanks again for the review, looks great!

Hey...that looks fantastic.
I'm pretty excited about getting my bumper installed now.

With the side grills - can't you cut holes in the fog light housings or brackets , still leaving enough of it to securely hook the fog light in but still get some air flow through there too?

When you decide what you're going to do, please post your solution.
I have a 335xi...I'll need to figure this out as well right?
Thanks.

I personally kind of like the no fog look so I am not sure if I am going to try to fit the fogs or not. You could definitely take a dremel and cut out the center portion that blocks the ducts so air flow would not be an issue.

looks good... i think this Mtech Rep bumper actually 1ups the oem version on the fact the increase air flow with the custom lower grills (no obnoxious solid portions) and no reflectors. just my 2cents.

The increase air flow to my Stett intake is noticeable too. It's been hot and the car feels more responsive.

Looks great. Any idea how the fitment of a lip would be?

The install is very easy. Follow this link step by step and you will be fine. I did not have to trim or modify anything.

Not much other than cost. The OEM bumper has reflectors, this one does not (advantage JGMods bumper). Fitment is the only thing you have to worry about when buying aftermarket vs. OEM as they are both made out of the same material. As you can see, this fits great!

The tow hook cover is on now. The one that they supply fits fine I just hadn't had it painted yet.

I do not know the answer to your HID fog question.
