    hello everybody.

    Im knew to the forum and i would like some help from you lot as im new to bmws, spent a few years modifying vw's.

    What i would like some help with is i have a bmw 318 convertible 52 plate and im sorry if this has been asked so many times but i realy want to fit a m3/ mtech front bumper to my car if i fitted a coupe m tech bumper would it fit any modifications? also the car sits quite high on the front end i dont want to use coilovers as i in past experience they make the ride terrible but i realy like how low the mtech bmw's are could i just swap the springs?.

    any help realy appreciated thanks

    hello mate
    as far as i am aware the m3 bumpers fit all 3 series models and the mtec spring are about 15mm lower.

    You dont have to use coilovers to lower the car mate, you could use ebach spring on standard shocks, they do a hole range of very good lowering springs from 20mm down to 60mm and are about £100 per set and they dont make the car ride badly, hope this helps mate


    cheers

    Mtech/Sport bumper is a straight bolt on job.

    M3 bumper will not fit without mods. M3 wings are differerent to normal coupe/vert wings.
