I like the Mtech. But buy what ever you like. Its gonna be on your car and you have to look at it all the time.

I grabbed an Mtech rep from JGmods. Looks and fits like factory at a fraction of the OEM cost.

You can see my painted and mounted pics in this thread http://www.e90post.com/forums/showth...=687646&page=9

I like the performance w/side skirts also. Be aware that the performance deletes fogs and you will need to code them out.

Performance w/splitters looks and works well since it also has brake ducts.

my point was less that you can see what it looks like on my car.. and more that you can see the quality and fitment of the bumpers they are selling.

I just got my front and rear reps from them painted and mounted within the past 2 weeks. Very happy with them so far.

Both awesome bumpers, but the mtech flows with the lines in the hood a ton better, and looks sick with either splitters/lip.

If you go aero lip... you'll like it for a week, than you'll regret not going mtech.

Save yourself the money and go Mtech now, it's way better IMO anyway. I've got Mtech rep front and rear from mod bargains. Couldn't be happier!

or... if you're ballerific, go get that 1M front at LTBMW.

The performance bumper will certainly mix things up more..I rarely see it. I'm not a fan of it tho but always I'm always for being different.
