Help! M sport bumper fitment

Hi guys,
That was in the process of swapping my existing bumper with an M sport, when I noticed the cut out under the headlight wasn't at all close. The bumper is allegedly and LCI vintage but commonsense suggests otherwise.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

Hard to tell from the photos, but that looks like an LCI Msport bumper for the sedan, not the coupe (like you have).

+1 that headlight cutout is a dead giveaway.

Definitely the wrong bumper. Any way of figuring out if it's an e90 pre LCI, LCI etc?
Jackpipe in the forum sold it as an m sport e92 LCI bumper.
Thanks again for your help
I'm going to put it up fs after I know what it is exactly.
Paint is code 668 jet black

If you take a pic of the full bumper, it will be easy to tell whether it's LCI or Pre-LCI. The bottom shape of the bumper where the fog lights go are very different.

The biggest difference between LCI and pre-lci is where the headlight washer covers are located

Rear bumpers are the same, no difference in lci or pre lci, only difference is e92 vs e90 and maybe e91 i think
