2008 E90 - Replica M3 front Bumper Shop

Hi,

I want to replace my exising oem bumper to M3 reps (front).

Which shop/bodyshop did you go?

I really want to make it less has hassle, meaning have them order the part, paint and install.... i beleive most of folks here have to order it online, bring to the shop for painting and installation..

also how much i am looking for everything?

if i have to order it myself, which vendor/website?

thanks

Install is simple... As for finding a paint shop, just ask who can match your vehicle. I spent 390 to my door (eBay), fitment is great. I have to remove the air ducts... There are plenty of dudes in ATL that could chime in an assist you with install... It's not hard at all, maybe 30min to 1hr max.. Save yourself the money.

It depends on what brand m3 rep bumper you buy. Regular m3 rep bumpers from ebay or modmy3, **********, etc are made in taiwan which fits perfect. You can install this by yourself. Price is around 390-500 with shipping. Ebay is cheapest btw.

But brand like z_s_h_i_f_t, their m3 rep bumper needs modification. They sell m3 rep bumper cheaper than other places, but at the end, it will cost you more. Because you have to modify it.

I bought mine from ebay. Installed it myself (pretty easy, but you have to know how to uninstall front bumper). It will cost about $380-450 to paint front bumper.
I didnt paint my front bumper but I have plastidipped my whole car (spent about $250). But I decided to peel it off and go with vinyl wrap.
I have ordered 3m matte white vinyl wrap for $440 yesterday. I'm going to wrap my whole car next week.

Conclusion: Buy one from ebay. Search e90 m3 style bumper. Paint it at local paint shop. Install it yourself (check DIY section)

I use D&I body shop at Northside. Choose the best M3 rep out there and have them ship to the body shop then let the body shop know that they will be receiving your bumper. With D&I they will take the color code of your Car (w/c is located in your hood) to get the right mix of paint and they are really good in installing/working with body parts of luxury cars. Mabuhay kabayan!

Thanks guys, now i want to have an m3 rep on my 335i as well
Looks really nice and clean, but i think if you get the bumper you need the lip to make it even more agressive

I know this is an old thread but no point of making a new one coz it relates to my question. Is modmy3 out business? What company that makes this m3 style bumper without fitting issues?
