How about rear bumpers? What do they usually cost? Have some dings on it, not bad enough to run out and get one, but at some point...

I think the key word is prepainted.

IMHO: It's best to have them painted locally as larger painted items can be damaged in shipping or hard to match with on older finishes (sunlight/UV fade, etc.).

Since they are OEM, fitment won't be an issue.

I called a BMW body shop (part of the dealer) and they told me that the OEM Euro bumper has a slight variation in terms of the assembly and that I would have to probably buy a few parts to make it fit (such as bolts, air ducts? and the heat shield).

Is this a croc, or is it the procedure?

Bumpers are exactly the same, sans reflector cutouts.

Absolutely incorrect. Bumpers will always be SLIGHTLY off in color..


Even from factory.


The only color that will not show a color difference, is jet black.

So I guess the verdict is that you can't get pre-painted parts anymore?

I believe IND still pre-paints items. I had them pre-paint my OEM Euro bumper a few months ago.

I have an OEM Euro front bumper installed on my car. It was a direct bolt-on and did not require any new hardware.

Are you still able to get these bumpers? if so, what is the cost of a rear bumper for a E92 M3 Coupe?
