Seriously? Why is everyone chomping at the bit to buy a fiberglass bumper? Call it FRP or fiberglass reinforced polyester, it all means the same thing. Cheapass, inflexable, brittle, fiberglass. (And that's coming from a guy that produces custom fiberglass.)

The arkym bumper looks amazing, but dont buy a fiberglass front bumper.

I don't know of any except the carbon fiber one which is too much money and of course authentic or the fiberglass that everyone else seems to be running fine.

I took the plunge and got the fiberglass bumper from Extreme Dimensions. It definitely does not fit the best at first, but we got it looking pretty damn good. And yes, fiberglass is not the best option, but when you want something badly, you will have to make a sacrifice. I plan on getting my factory m sport bumper refinished and having both just in case, but trust me, I'm worried shitless about hitting a pothole, parking block, curb, etc with the bumper.

I would have paid up to $1000 for a poly arkym rep bumper if there was one available, but there just isn't... And there is no point in paying the huge amounts of money for a carbon fiber M3 arkym bumper and making it work on a non M.

Yeh damn thats over my budget! With te shipping and the respray its more than what i need.
Also may not line up with the stock 335i hood. Did you know that an M3 Hood isnt a direct fitwith a e92/3 ? The M3 hood sticks out alot more forward and ould hit against the grills and wont latch down. For this reason also it deters me from buying the bumper
Thanks thought8!

I'm guessing because this guy got so defensive and he hasn't posted any after pics, he either was scammed or it was a shit bumper.
