e9x M3 bumper for sale

Have a silverstone bumper that got scratched at the front. Nothing serious, didn't crack or go through the plastic so just needs to be sanded smooth and repainted. All clips in perfect condition which can be seen from photos.

You can see the 2 scratches to the left and right of the kidney grill. Otherwise it's in fantastic condition.

Good also as a backup bumper (if you have high insurance excess) or as a spare trackday bumper to protect from chips etc

Price $200. Pickup Melb or can organise shipping interstate.

Either you have too much money to replace a bumper over few minor scratches, or the insurance assessor has been hoodwinked to replace it through a claim.

Regardless, no one is going to keep a spare bumper in the shed waiting for an accident to happen, or swap it for a track day.

You'll be better off getting touch with a BMW panel shop and they might be able to get rid of it for you. But these days, panel shops don't waste time repairing, they replace because it is quick, easy and less labour intensive.

Good luck with the sale.

I did the same thing with my e46 M3. Bought a spare bumper from someone off the forums as my wife has lots of car parking bumps so didn't want to keep ruining my excess on an expensive car. 2 or more basic claims even for basic damage put the premium through the roof (triple) and wasn't worth it. In the end I got sick of constant minor repairs so sold it and still have this
