Where's the best place to buy a mtech rear bumper, or replica?

First question, where's the best place to buy a mtech rear bumper?

Second question, are there any good replicas that are compatible with carbon fiber diffusers, if so which ones would you recommend?

be sure to confirm LCI or non-LCI (your info doesn't say).

Not sure, but the first thing that comes to mind is the taillights. They're different in shape between both versions. Usually all the (mass-produced) aftermarket conversions are pre-LCI... not sure why.

LCI and Pre-LCI M-Sport bumper covers are the same, the only thing different is the diffuser (I perfer the pre-LCI diffuser).

With the tail-lights, you need a new LCI trunk. Go blacklines though, it looks more agressive IMO

So what about the rep bumpers on ebay, do you think the diffusers would fit them as well?

A lot of the ''trusted vendors'' buy from the same asian sources as ebay sellers. :/

The M tech we carry will fit any/all diffusers that would fit the OEM M tech rear.

So as long as the diffuser is manufactured by a reputable company with good fitment, it will fit just fine wether you go OEM or Replica.
