Test fit 335i E90 Needed in San Diego/Stock rear bumper diffuser overlay

I've been in contact with bluebatmobile about an overlay for the stock rear bumper on the E90 Sedan stock bumper. He's done a great job creating these for other cars and the result will hopefully be a similar look to the M-Tech diffuser, just for our stock bumper.

Unfortunately I am not in the San Diego area and Bluebat is. So if there is anyone in the San Diego area with a 335 and stock bumper who is willing to meet for a test fit, please contact me or blue bat directly at: bluebatmobile@san.rr.com

Any takers?

Thanks

Ive seen his work. He's legit.

I tried to do a vinyl overlay on my e90 bumper awhile back, but failed because the bumper contours required quite a bit of heating & stretching of the material.

It is literally a stick on removable vinyl overlay. But you wouldn't be able to tell from the quality used.

I come from the G37 world and his rear overlay is spot on quality. We really need someone in San Diego area to take him up on his offer to test fit for us. He is more than willing to do the leg work on getting this thing to fit once he has a tester.

Please contact him or myself if you can make it happen.

I have a 2011 335i M Sport, Is that what he needs? Does he need to take off the rear bumper?

What we are really looking for is an alternative for people without the M-Tech bumper.

So Sedan 07/08 Non M-Tech bumper & 09+ Non M-Tech bumper.

Right now it seems there are a good bit of 09+ willing to have their bumpers test fitted.

Now we just need an 07/08 Non M-Tech Sedan in San Diego!

No your bumper will not need to be taken off. There will just be measurements, followed by rough cuts of the vinyl to create a test sheet. From there it will be fine tuned.

From looking at pictures online they appear to be different. Looks like more lower angles/detail on the 09+
