Based on your comments, fittment of this bummer is not does this means it's not worth it?
Yes I have it.

1st of all, the quality of the work to mate the two together was barely average. When the body shop prepped the bumper for paint, there was a long crack along the seam where they put the two together. The shop had to reinforce the bumper heavily to get the crack to stop.

2nd, neither of the main scoops fit whatsoever. There is also no hardware to make them work properly with the M3. In addition, you lose some of the support bracketry that the M3 bumper uses.

In my case since I got the bumper used, there was no one I could really go to for "warranty" purposes. Since I did not buy the bumper from LTBMW directly, I would not expect them to help me in any way. Even if they were to fix the bumper, that would not have changed the fact that the scoops do not fit well and that the parts you have to eliminate make it somewhat less desirable.
