Hey, welcome.

Installing the bumper is quite easy. I believe all you'll need is an 8 or 10mm socket and a screw driver. Should take about an hour, two max if it's your first time.

I can get it installed for you at my families shop in Kenosha! PM me. Or I can guide you in a place around by you.

Welcome! I grew up down in the Bolingbrook area, but live up North now Go to the place in Naperville as mentioned by Kathy, the only place I know of is A&L in Palatine. It is an easy DIY...check it in the DIY section.

I've installed the M3 replica bumper before. Its a very straightforward job. Easier on a N/A E9X than one of the N54 or N55's b/c of the oil cooler duct.

Unless you plan on doing the M3 style ducts (and foglight delete), the only tricky part is cutting the oil cooler duct and brake duct to fit the fog light housing on the passenger side. You NEED a dremel or other type of tool like it to be able to do this.

Otherwise, like everyone said, its a 2 hour job maximum. Helps to have 2 people. I personally wouldn't pay to have it installed if you already have it painted. It's not hard to do. Just takes time and patience.

Very true. Forgot I used a dremel as well to cut the ducts.
