Anyone know what this rear bumper is?

Just found this picture online, and I was wondering what the rear bumper is. At first I thought it was the E90 Arkym rear bumper, but its not.

Anyone know? I also sent a message to Slek asking them.

Slek wide body. I love the rear but the front not so much.

Nice! Thanks for the link.

I agree about the front, actually the only thing I like is the trunk and the diffuser on the rear bumper.

Arkym has something similar, I wish they would make it for the E92 and not just the E90

Pretty sure some provinces would require you to run mudflaps...

I have removed mud flaps in my old cars, never had an officer stop me for that.

Yeah, I don't think those tiny "mudflaps" would be a reason for an office to pull you over.

So after careful consideration I am thinking of buying an Arkym E90 bumper and having the shop I deal with custom fit it into an OEM E92 bumper....

The other two options above bring some issues for me, as the slek is a widebody, so that would need to be cut up, and the Amuse does not look as great as the Arkym and Slek.

What do you guys think?

That rear looks hideous. Way too much going on. Anyone ever heard the expression "less is more"

I love the diffuser from it...that's why I am wondering if there is a non-widebody version of it...so its just a regular bumper with that diffuser

Less is more?? Never heard of that...i'm just an Architect, hold on, let me call my buddy Mies Van Der Rohe...he might know what you are referring to.
