Is this what you're talking about?

I had thought about looking at getting this because I have the non-sport 328i, but I figured that it was really cheap. If it's actually decent that I might reconsider. :-)

I was looking at one of their pieces as well, but didn't buy it because I couldn't find any reliable reviews on a site like this one. I'd also be interested to see what people have to say.

Duraflex is just a nice way of saying FRP - fiberglass reinforced plastic - better than standard fiberglass, but still fiberglass, not a plastic bumper like oem and when they say flex they mean very little flex, before cracking. Just want you to know what it is before you buy it!

Doesn't necessarily have to be OEM, just avoid duraflex and FRP.
