Has anyone heard of extremeparts in Toronto

I've been looking into shopping for a set of m3 side skirts and have came across this shop called extremeparts.

website: http://www.extremeparts.ca/new/
address:
4000 Steeles Avenue West Unit #4
Toronto
L4L 4V9

I purchased the e92 trunk lip from them a while back and it fit perfectly, but that's a pretty easy part to replicate without fitment problems. I was looking for feedback from individuals that purchased the m3 side skirts, m3/m-tech front bumper, or any experiences they had with this store.

Also, I would like to gather the same info regarding jspecperformance up in markham :P

website: http://www.jspecperformance.com/default.asp

Any feedback/Info will be much appreciated! Thank you

Yea, but it's all about fitment, I rather spend an extra $50-100 to get one shipped in with better fitment than buy something that's just not satisfying. I did some research and there's this holding company right at Niagara falls (buffalo, NY) that lets you ship to them and has pretty cheap fees. Check them out http://www.usaddressinc.com/ you could just get a U.s Vendor to ship your parts their, its literally right across the rainbow bridge.

holding fees go as follows:

$5 per package up to 50 lbs
$10 per package 51-100 lbs
$15 per package 101-150 lbs
etc....
one weeks free storage, then they charge you like $2 per week after the first free week, but could be more per week depending on package size and weight.

If you're ok with driving down there to pick up, it's the perfect solution. I've done it many times and I'm totally satisfied.

Although, I wouldn't have mentioned that last part on a public forum

If anyone is looking for an M3 Replica Bumper I am currently selling the one I got shipped up from ECS Tuning in the US. Fitment is supposed to be pretty dead on from them which is the main reason why I bought it to begin with.

I know a friend who bought an aftermarket OEM style 2005 Acura TL bumper from there. Fitment was great.

fitment from extreme parts is pretty good, id say 8-9/10.

Also - you cant sneak a bumper across the border in the trunk so plan on having enough cash to pay the taxes on it.

I've tried both.

extreme parts is fairly ok, Only thing i bought for my E90 there was my grill.

My old cars (1.6EL, Altima) I've bought parts from them and no complaints.

jspecperformance... meh for me, far and wasn't worth it. bought some AE's off them before and wasn't to happy with it... seemed a bit dull and they wouldn't take it cause it was used once i put it on so meh sold it outside to someone who didn't care. other than that I haven't heard anything really about jspec

I was looking at their aero front lip specifically, they have it for $180 unpainted. One guy told me he bought it and it warped in the summer heat lol. Was looking to see if anyone else bought the aero lip from them (http://www.jspecperformance.com/Prod...BMW-E9207-MTEC)

techy1's pictures

Hey I was wondering if I could come take a look at the fitment of the m3 side skirts in person? Do they overlap anywhere? Do the ends of the skirts line up with the front and rear fenders? Let me know about any imperfections you noticed please

Let me know if I can come check it out anytime soon!

I got my e90 m3 side skirts from there. The overall fitment is acceptable but still not perfect. I would give 7/10. It barely line up with the fenders and the inside clips cannot hold at all so that it is a bit of protruding.

Guys the only parts that fit spot on are stamped on the inside and say OEM BMW Made In Germany.

Its possible to get parts that have balls-on fitment, if you really care that much then buy OEM parts. Any replica, no matter how good, will not have the consistency and fitment of those made for BMW.
