    Hi Guys,

    Had a search round the forum but cant find what I'm looking for so accept my apologies if this question has been previously answered.

    My E36 318ti Compact got crashed into whilst parked in November and I'm finally getting round to repairing what was an insurance write off.

    I'm looking to upgrade to an M-tech bumper, I'm unsure whether to buy a second hand genuine bumper or buy a replica from Mstyle.

    Just wondering if anyone had any info or experience of the Mstyle version:
    http://www.mstyle.co.uk/acatalog/BMW...Splitters.html

    I bought a replica from eBay from a different company and to cut a long story short, the bumper on the ad didn't match what I received so its being sent back and refunded.

    I don't really want to buy another poorly made replica so any help would be much appreciated.

    Also if anyone has a source for good genuine M-tech bumpers please share, I've contacted a few dismantlers but nothing decent has appeared yet.

    basically the one i bought from ebay was all on piece abs plastic. I didnt mind this but the bottom lip of the bumper was moulded into the plastic which means i would have to paint it the same colour as the rest of the bumper (i wanted the lip to be black) or mask the lip.

    Also the grill mesh was a very poor fit and i could see daylight through the rub strips.

    Just wondering if anyone knew of one that was of a better quality, preferably with a removeable bottom lip?
