Someone fitted ONLY the M-Tech Front Bumper?

Good morning, gentlemen!

Is there somebody who fitted ONLY the M-Tech front bumper to his e92? Im thinking about converting my car to the M-Tech look, but to go for the front bumper only, because i dont really like the looks of the rear bumper...

Id be glad to hear your opinions on that!

Of course. Most people don't buy two new bumpers at once.

I'd suggest doing the front first, then slowly working towards the rear. That way you're not overwhelming yourself or your bank account.

I know a lot of people who have done just the front or just the rear and it does make a difference. The rear bumper is amazing simply because you can change your diffuser and BAM new look all over again, and something new to fall in love with.

Feel free to pm me if you want to see some photos, don't have them on my laptop.

thank you guys! you really helped me out a lot. i think you have convinced me to just go for the front bumper first.

metro: this looks great. is the bumper an oem part or aftermarket? in germany you can get a used front bumper for around 180€, but without any grills and fog lights. aftermarket set costs about 350€.

lol, I remember the days when I'd see cars with modded front bumpers and standard skirts and rear, riding high up on large rims. That always made it obvious the driver was a new modder on a budget.
Good thing you cant do that these days with most cars running their bodies lower to the ground in the first place.

Few weeks ago i changed my stock bumper to m-sport front bumper.I bought it used for 280 with all the parts except foglights, but the best part was ,that it was already same color as my car. I have no intention to change my rear bumper or skirts. I have e90 tho.

Some pictures here
