    Any update on this Soot?

    I too thought the saloon/touring bumper was the only one with inserts.

    The latest is I've had to escalate it to a claim through Paypal, the seller has offered to exchange it for one that will fit but..... will not have it painted. Although I appreciate the offer of exchanging it, I'm not prepared to pay yet again for paint.

    We'll see where it goes from here.

    Edit: I also didn't know that the saloon / touring bumpers were the only one's to have inserts, I'm not sure what to do now.

    Thanks for the update, sorry to hear its still not sorted.

    In what way won't it fit? Presume it's too wide if you think its for a coupe/cab?

    Yep, it's about 3 inches too wide. The seller says it's because it's for a face lift saloon / Touring? I thought they were the same and it was the coupe's that were wider?

    That was my understanding too, it even says in his ebay ad that those bumpers are for "Facelift & Vorfacelift" (Facelift and Before Facelift). It doesn't say anything about specifying which one you have.
    I've got a facelift model so if you wan't me to take any measurements from it just give me a shout.

    What colour did you have it painted? If its Sapphire Black and it'll fit mine I'll take it off your hands.

    I'll measure the width and let you compare.

    It's painted Titan Silver unfortunately but I'll have to wait until the Paypal dispute is resolved before I know what will happen with it.

    Good luck with getting the money back or a replacement. Was looking forward to how good it would look! Hope it all goes well.

    When I first started the Paypal dispute, the seller said that he'd sent the correct one as per the listing, but..... could exchange it for one that'd fit????

    Very, very weird!

    Hi SootE46. Wish i had seen your post sooner. I have also recently purchased the same bumper as you also from the same ebay seller. Luckily in my case i know the guy in the bodyshop and he recommended fitting it to check how good it is first. (Unluckily my auction finished at a higher prioce than yours). Mine has exactly the same problems as yours. The humps in the top edge, the fact that it is quite a bit wider than the car. My local BMW dealer suggested it has been sized as for the M3 as that is wider due to bigger wings. I have now had to open a papypal dispute aswell due to the seller not responding to my emails. I sent them in english and german (big thanks to BABEL FISH translation site). I am now waiting to see what paypal/ ebay can do to reslove it for me. If it helps your case you are welcome to quote my username (it's same on here as ebay) as being another frustrated customer. How is your dispute going ? any indication what the outcome might be ? I (luckily) took photos of it on the car showing how out of shape it is.
