    Stick out as in...doesn't look good without the black trim to match door trims.

    I think it looks good

    There seems to be a bit of confusion as to what bumper will fit what, from all that I've read I'm still confused!

    General thought when talking about the E46 mtech front bumpers is:
    One bumper for coupe and convertible
    One for saloon and touring (narrower fitment)
    and......
    M3 bumper will only fit M3

    I've seen a couple of places where the above doesn't seem to apply though. This thread for one and I know we are talking aftermarket but this thread doesn't help to make it clear either http://www.bimmerforums.co.uk/forum/...anyone-t28231/

    I'm not sure whether facelift/pre-facelift makes a difference or not, as I said I'm not sure of any of it now

    yeah i think it looks meaner, for agresive
    but that coupe bumper i have put on the e46 is an original bmw coupe bumper,
    the only placewhere it doesnt fit right is under the lights but that dont bother me atall
    i think it looks good, the length of the bumper is spot on tha same,

    it looks fine just a bit weird without the black trim, do the coupe's not have it on the side either then? i cant imagine it right now.

    i find the coupe mtech bumpers go for cheaper than the saloon ones. in my ebay'ing it experience! haha
