M3 GTS-V

After waiting since August i received my bumper on friday. its a 2 piece bumper and looks amazing. i just wish the fitment was perfect. it took motorcepts a little work to fix the imperfection it came with. For the price i paid for this bumper i figured it would come in perfect condition just paint and mount, but that wasn't the case. it even came with a little crack which was fixable. I'm going to call wheel boutique tomorrow to see if i'm going to get some kind of reimbursement for the damage and imperfection it came with. i hight think ill get anything back but it doesnt hurt to try. anyway this is the only picture i have for now while it was at the shop.

Very.....very nice,but i prefer to see the black parts on the front bumper
made of CF or CF look..... matches better with the E92 CF roof .
But that...is just me.

Yeah that's the best the body's hip could do. The fitment is the best for the amount of money spent on this limited edition bumper. I was so disappointed, but I gotta see what wheel boutique tells me. I called yesterday and he was like I could send you another one if I'm no too satisfy. Lets see what happens.

ahhhh gotcha! if it was crazy expensive then with more of a reason it should fit right... I'd definitely take a replacement and have it tested on before painting. Good luck with that!

Yup was my only option since no tow hook and didn't want to drill into the bumper.

Nope no headlight washers and if I did you will need to get the cutouts done. My friend who's on the forums too (m3sicko) needs to get headlight washer cutouts and also the front parking sensors too.

+1 Please PM me as well for plate info.

Also please post some better quality closeup pics to show us the fitment issues. For 2 G's there shouldn't be any cracks or fitment issues.

Otherwise this looks like a huge upgrade. Nice.

Can you pm me some info in this please? Im tired of rolling the dice every time I park the car on the street withuot a front plate - risking tickets. You had to cut the bumper grill obviously?
