    Hi,

    Well im having a pretty crap week, some twat went and reveresed his crappy Vectra (with a tow bar) straight through my front bumper

    All a big hassle but im needing a replacement bumper ASAP.

    Im looking to get an M5 kit from Ebay Germany, one of these:

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/BMW-E39-M5-SPO...item3efc9d602e

    I just need to confirm the facts though - the M5 bumper will DEFINETLY fit my car ? No mods needed etc no extra parts needed just take the old one off and put the new one on correct ? Everything lines up etc etc ?

    Thanks

    Those guys are a fookin nightmare to deal with...
    It took me a month to sort out a dispute with them, BUT the bumper I got was bloody good for the money. I had an E36 M-Tech bumper and it went straight on with no trouble..
    Just nobbed me off with there crap customer service...
