Experience with Advanation (eBay store)? M3 sides and front rep

I picked up a front bumper and side skirts for my E90 LCI, after seeing their ad on eBay for a combo for under $600 shipped.

Anyhow, I'm curious if anyone has experience with this seller and their items?

I'm sure you'll fine.. Plenty of us have bought M3 bumpers and stuff from eBay including myself. Plus the seller has a high rating so you shouldn't have to worry.

Man.. Some of you guys need to use the button, no offense.

You apparently think they're all identical... They aren't.

I had a terrible fitting m3 rep front bumper but the review was removed because it had the name of a banned seller in it.

Oh I see.. Ok it's my fault for thinking they're all the same so I apologize..

Still.. You could've search which eBay seller people are getting their M3 bumpers from..

Brilliant idea... Welcome to that thread

In LA you can buy from warehouses that supply the stores we all see advertising these items. And it gets cheap, like well under $500 for the bumper and both side skirts with complete installation kits for each. They supply places like modmy3. I don't want to say that as a fact but as an example.

Same goes for mtech front and rear bumpers. Perfect fitment, $300-$350 each. But you have to do the due diligence and make a friend at the right place.

It's all such a pain. I'd rather do it this way.
