So my bumper is not aligned..

Hey guys just took my bumper to an auto shop for a quote on some bumper plugs for the license plate section and they said that it wouldnt be a problem and such, but the bumper in the front was not flush nor aligned. So i was like well wtf... i will take a few photos and upload them to the thread but i think it is ridiculous to buy a CPO car from a BMW dealership and them not tell you about the bumper and not just that the cars 2 vents on the bottom left and right ( i do not know the right word at the moment ) the drivers side is pushed in more and it looks like the pins ripped out that were holding it... Its just so frustrating not knowing that the car did not have this taken car of in the first place...

Sadly, this is common. Arguably, it's "normal."

I would not trust myself with doing something like that tbh, and such as clipping the back of the bumper back on just wouldnt work with me at least.

Where is it misaligned exactly? It's pretty easy to adjust.

Ryan at Steve Thomas did it for free for me at delivery.

It was a simple procedure.
