Why dont I have a rear bumper with removable diffuser?

I've seen stock 335i with removable diffusers on the stock bumper. Why is mine a one piece?
I have noticed its been on sedans but I dont think that's the issue.

Wondering why mine isnt removable where some are and then also what are some good rear bumpers that do have removable diffusers so I can put one in I like

because you dont have the M-Sport package. not to be confused with the regular sport package. you have almost 400 posts in 3 months, healthy bolt-on parts and a tune, and you've never heard of msport/mtech?!?!?!

For some reason I thought I had the msport but I guess you're right its just a sport with all other options other than msport

So my choices for a rear bumper with removable diffuser would be what brands?

I wouldnt go aftermarket. Just get the MTech rear bumper with the BMW Performance diffuser. You'll have to get the MTech mounting brackets, the bumper, and the diffusor. It's by far the best looking combo IMHO.

Got mine when i bumped into a pillar in my parking garage But fortunately there was no structural damage. Total cost was about $1500 for parts (from the dealer, you could do way better) and paint and labor at a very reputable local shop.

They do most of their work on exotics, so i got them to use some paint leftover from respraying an F430 diffusor for my diffusor. Very durable and beautiful flat black

The two main types I've seen are mine and the flat one that comes on the normal M-Sport. There are aftermarket options out there, check Ebay and the e90post vendor sites

I have searched BUT I like to know all my options and I know of the mtech and M3 rear bumper.
What Im asking is are there any others? I just dont want to buy an mtech and then 4 months from now see a different rear bumper that I like more.

So the best way to gather info is by having you guys post what brands are out there.

Wow... if e90post can remedy this, then everyone will come flocking here to see what they can put on their car that you will not hate.

You'll see the majority of people running M-Tech because it looks awesome, even though its stock is has a little bit of after-market flair on it.

Also, with the M-tech there is a variety of diffusers you can get as well.

Most aftermarket bumpers i've seen for the e90/e92's have been super tacky.

Just my opinion of course.
