Carbon Fiber Kreations

I placed the order of front bumper w/ CFK and before it got delivered I had
to go out of country to get other things done. So I left my car at the bodyshop
and asked the manager at the shop to paint and install the bumper while I was gone.
Then I got a phone call from the bodyshop while I was in overseas complaining that
CFK bumper's fitment is horrible and it wontfit.
I called Scott (CFK's owner) immediately. We had along
conversations and he somehow convinced me that his product works. So I
had the bodyshop match paint the CFK bumper and put oem bumper back on.
When I got back to the States, I picked up the CFK bumper and went to
different bodyshop. All I've heard was the Same story with worst
fitment. I called Scott for the last time being very upset and
he offered me to have it installed from the cutom bodyworks that he knows.
I didnt think it was going to work because it was already painted and had
very little room to work with.
They wiggled it for a while and installed it with no problem!!!
Scott offered to pay the installation fee
Im really happy with the bumper, more than my 3D(authentic) splitter.
I would NOT say fitment is 100%(it's quite tight) but SUBPAR considering
it being aftermarket piece. With installers that knows how to fit things well,
I recogmend products from CFK.

good to hear that you got it installed properly. its not uncommon to have body shops that dont know how to install a certain part correctly, especially if its aftermarket since they probably never installed such a bumper on an m3 before.

I think I'm missing something here. You said you had a hard time getting it to fit, and that it's not 100%, and it's subpar, but then you say that you're satisfied with it? Just judging from the photos, it looks like fitment is spot on....so just making sure, but this is a positive review, right?

did you read the whole review bro? it's positive... you just need an experienced installer to put it on or else most body shops will just give up on it.

I don't think the OP knows what "subpar" means. That sentence you quoted doesn't make any fucking sense.

Cool, thanks for the review panbo. Wasn't trying to call you out or anything, just trying to make sure is all.

Damn fine looking bumper and a damn fine looking car.

And for the record, I wish I was as good at my third language as you. Hard enough having a first and second.
