Would you mind telling me which model front/side grills you have on your vehicle? How close do they match the gloss shadowline? Thanks.

Cheaper = costs less. Seems to be the smart thing to do. Fresh paint on the bumper, don't require removing and replacing! The previous owner painted over the reflectors on my front bumper when he had the bumper resprayed.

We get the shit end of the stick in the UK with gas prices, short warranty, rip off dealer prices. But at least we get a nice looking bumper. The US one is horrible.

Quadruple points if you've scraped the shit out of the bottom of your bumper and are OCD about your car's appearance

I see so little difference between the Euro and the US front bumper that I must question the purpose for changing it.

If the bumper is damaged or chipped by road degree the best way I would proceed would be as follows;

1) Find out from your BMW dealership who he recommended body shop is. Here in Canada BMW uses only certified shops that have certifyed body shop repair technicians on staff. Even here in our small own (less then 400,000 people in our town) there is a certified BMW body shop. In the front office there are 3 certificates from BMW on the wall for people that underwent training by BMW. The insurance company also recommends the use of these shops. Workmanship is guaranteed for as long as you have the car.

2) If one absoluely needs the Euro part so be it, only bring it to the US only primed as it is stored. Use the certified shop (item 1 above) to finish the bumper then install it. Colour match will be 100% since those shops use only the original paint.

That's what I'll be doing! Still an OEM bumper, costs less, and no need to sell an extra bumper.
