E90 Sedan Body Kits

Hey Bimmer friends, I own a e90 328 2007 and I was just wondering where is the best place in the GTA or near the GTA to buy front / rear M conversion bumpers. If anyone is selling message me if not I would really appreciate if someone can point me in the right direction concerning which stores carry these products!
Thanks a lot guys

I know a number of people that have been happy with it, mostly E90/E92 but a couple of F30 too.

Thanks for the reply. Anyone have photos of the fitment? Mtech or M3 front bumper.

As far as I have heard, if you're buying an after market bumper, there is are fitment issues and work needs to be done.

All PBC (plastic) bumpers require labor to prep them for paint as the material dries like a sponge and has pitting all over.

Quality isn't the word I would use for these products, but I believe that's par for course for dumpers.

Are you speaking from experience from these sources in particular.

I agree many aftermarket body parts have fitment issues, especially those made in duraflex and fibreglass.

That being said, most people buying parts from extremeparts say things like 95+% fitment, meaning no modification necessary, just that there might be the slightest gap in one minor spot (based on results I've seen first hand).

Any additional work required to prep the bumper for paint hasn't been explicitly mentioned for these parts, so even if it's required, it's easy enough that it's just included in the standard price to paint the bumper.

In general these comments may be a good thing to keep an eye out for, but most people that purchased from extremeparts at least (unsure of racingbees) haven't had these issues.

Slightly off topic but does anyone know approximately how much I should expect to pay for a body shop to paint a front bumper from Extreme Parts. The colour would be black if that matters.

Call around. Prices vary tremendously. Avg is $500-$700.

I'm speaking in general, not regarding one company or another. The pitting is part of the manufacturing process.

My Fitment comment was just what I read online, or in these forums. Exstreemparts could very well do their due diligence and confirm fitment from products they are supplying.

Dumpster comment still belonged in the dumpster folder. AKA trash.

To the members in BC, Where is your aftermarket body part shop that's a go too for all-inclusive purchase and install?

I'm talking about LCI versions of there is any differences on how they handle the purchase.
