Question; e92 M3 rep bumper or M tech Style?

Hey whats going on guys... I have an 07 335i coupe. Im tired of the way of the front bumper looks. I cant really decide if I should go with the e92 M3 rep. front bumper or the M Tech Style any suggestion. I will be purchasing it over M. Bargains. I already have the m3 rep side skirts from them on the car. I would appreciate it if you guys give me some ideas. THANKS!



heres the picture with the m3 rep side skirts.

+1 but if your into lips like me i'd go with M-Tech since they have better looking lips and more to choose from.

For an e92 and e90 LCI i would go MTech because you can get all the OEM ducting, etc. For the pre LCI e90 I dont like the MTech bumper because it looks like a giant chin, which is why im doing M3 rep and going through the brain damage of making the ducts work with OEM M3 ducts

You really can't go wrong either way. I went with the M3 rep on my e92 just because most people I see up in New England seem to have the M Tech. Like JS-NA.E92 said, if you're into lips....go with the M Tech as there's only one option for the M3 rep.

It all depends on how aggressive you want to go. I was and the same boat and went with MTech. However, if you go M3, do the ducts also! Check out my pictures in my garage <---. Different color, but you can get a feel for it. Also, google image might help.

M-Sport is the way to go. Prefer to look more OEM than to mimic the look of another car. I wouldn't call the M3 bumpers "poser"-ish, but something about cloning the look of the higher-end model rubs me the wrong way.

And honestly I think the shape of the M Sport is cleaner and better looking anyway, especially on our cars.

I know with the m3 rep I would have to get an oem M3 duct and cut it to custom fit it... what about with the M tech can I use the brake duct I have on the car or I would have to buy a new one customize that also?

yes, very good service and about a 9/10 fitment, although the fitment on my side skirts couldve been better

M3 reps for sure. M tech bumpers are cool but still not that aggressive.
