Guys I need your opion on this M-Tech rear bumper.

Anyone have tried these 2006-2008 BMW 3 Series E90 4dr M-Tech Rear Bumpers? I can get a really good deal on them if go pick it up. Its only about 200 bucks. I really like the new rear M-tech look but Im not sure about the fact of being fiber glass?

Thanks in advance!

Here is the link:

Those are complete junk. Your OEM bumper is much higher quality product. Use only polyurethane bumpers.

+1

Fiberglass is bad for body panels due to how i bends, or lack thereof. Polyurethane will bend and be flexible. Fiberglass is a problem waiting to happen

Like they said, stay away from fiberglass. You can get a PU one from a reputable vendor for about $50 more than that.
