Not much to say but . The seller is awsome! Replies quick, ships fast, very helpful and answered all my questions. The best part is the price. $350 shipped! The only thing I was bummed out about was when they forgot to ship the foglights with the bumper which delayed the install. But they sent it out and I recieved it in like 2 days.

Anyway here are a couple of pic's. Fitment and quality is great! I got the bumper with headlight washers.

Oh BTW I changed my 5000K HID fogs to 3500K. I know some may not like yellow but I live in Washington where it rains and fogs 9 months out of the year.

Your washers are bumps as opposed to being flat on my OEM bumper, are they any different?

Yeah I didn't realize that until I opened the box.. I thought they would be the flat covers. But they're not too bad. There's a tiny hose like that sticks out the bubble/bump that links to where the washer fluid is. From afar it's not that noticable. Personally though I'd rather not lose a feature that came with the car even if I don't use it lol. Makes it less luxury or plain if you know what I mean.

Just ordered one of these from these people yesterday. I was backed into last week so changing from the original to this will be the silver lining to the whole thing!

Did you install the bumper your self? I am just curious how the fitament with out trimming is? Was there any adjustments that were needed?

No my body shop installed it. No trimming required. Some of the screws don't line up right but they can work with it. Other than that it's PnP.

Description actually says Polypropylene, not polyurethane and to my knowledge there is a difference in flexibility in the two..........

Wonder how these ebay bumpers will hold up over time......

From what I've read and heard Polypropylene is the superior material. Most flex and the material used by most manufacturers.

Just got mine in today, sending it to the shop tomorrow. One quick question, did they have to remove anything besides the brake air ducts?

I test fitted it tonight and seemed pretty good but the lower center mesh was right up center air duct (I believe its the oil cooler).

My shop is complaining that i wanted to go with an aftermarket bumper besides an oem one for the repair and they keep trying to tell that potentially so many other thing may need to be replaced. If they keep feeding me the BS i'm just going to take my business to another shop or install it myself after they paint it.

Don't listen to their BS, they mostly just don't want to get into any trouble.. going with OEM is the safest for them.
As for the bumper, I think with 328i, there is no need to remove air duct, you can just trim it.

Where did you get this painted and installed at in Washington and how much did they charge. I'm about to order one for my E92 but don't know where to get it install and paint and hope you can help me out. Was the paint job spot on? Thanks.
