E92 Mtech Front Bumper

Looking to upgrade to an Mtech front bumper and found this one on eBay.. polyurethane, looks decent, and has air ducts already included so I can drop the fog lights.. was wondering if anyone here had any experience with this one?

Cheers!

Just a heads up it's Polypropylene (OEM), which is better for a fascia application. I purchased an eBay one (w/ fogs), it has been speculated that these pieces all come out of one place (or a couple) and are then sold through countless eBay sellers and vendors. So they are all pretty much the same. With that said, the fit was easily 9/10 if not better. All I did was shave the washer holes I don't have the option, and I think it looks better.

That really makes sense, alot on eBay and pretty much everywhere looks the same, I don't see a reason to buy one twice the price from modbargins or ecs tuning honestly.. Great fitment and no complaints? Did you add the ducts when you put it on?

That's the part I'm confused with, will I still need to order the other ducts or just run with those....

Cheers for the reply!!

That's an M3 front bumper. A little different than a true m-tech one

Shot, I didn't even think of that, I was wanting to get an Mtech and the arkym front lip, I am assuming this would have fitment issues?

It would definitely have fitment issues. One of my friends had the M3 bumper and one had the m-tech. It's easier to find lips for the m-tech
