M2 front bumper.

I am after a M2 front bumper for my E92 pre Lci.

My current bumper is in need of a re-spray due to stone chips so I'm considering just getting a M2 bumper.

I have found one on eBay which I may buy, has anyone bought this and if so what's are your thoughts on it (fitment etc)

https://www.ebay.co.uk/i/322757448429

It also has no fog lights. My only concern being would it throw up any error codes regarding my current fogs?

Any information would help

M2 bumper, I thought,,, Should look nice BUT I have to agree its fugley and I cant see it lasting with speed humps and pot holes. BUT It is your car at the end of the day..

The 1M looks better but stick with a re paint and a cheeky splitter...

It has the exact same problem the 1M and M4 style bumpers have, it sits so much lower than the side skirt that it looks like the front is melting off.

1M is okay if the car is modified enough to pull it off, but M4 and M2 style ones are just awful.

M3 rep or sticking with M Sport would be my choice though for an E92/3.

Thanks for the input, I think I might get a re-spray and get a splitter.

I really like the Arkym style! If anyone knows of any for sale?

I got mine from hear, you need to message him, and he should respond.. Mine was a very good fit as well..... Fiberglass though, so if your low expect to get it repaired once or twice,

I agree with the above. Never been a fan of even the 1M bumper on the E92, the rest of the car is so sleek it just seems off putting such a bulky front bumper on.

Personal opinion of course!

I would never put an FRP bumper on my BMW! I quite like the design of it though.
