    Hi All

    I recently bought a e60 2006 originally I was looking for m-tech but couldnt find anything in my budget so I went for SE, the best part of M-tech I like is the front bumper. I was looking on eBay and found this

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...ht_1574wt_1165

    I have very basic knowlegde about car so needs a expert advise, changing front bumper from SE to M-tech (if I buy the one in the above link) will that be a straight swap? Second have a look at the photo in the link above, is that a full bumper or do I need anything else as well? Ofcourse I need to get this resprayed to match my colour and also the seller has mentioned the top grill is broken but that I can swap with my grill from SE bumper?

    By looking at the photos I think the lower grill has missing something or it is like this in m-tech bumper?

    Thanks a million in advance.

    Regards
    Salman

    The bits you require are pictured below.



    If you don't have headlamp washers, then you will need the blanking plates. Can't say the same will apply to the park sensors. The main things you will need are new air ducts, fogs, and grills. the Bumper carrier will swap out from your current one, and there are multiple screws to remove for the bumper skin.

    I got bi-xenons so I think I got washers and I also do parking sensors, which of the parts I can use from existing bumper and which once do I need to source sorry to be a pain but don't have much knowledge about cars.

    What you need to do is look HERE and HERE, and compare the parts you already have which can be used on the M-Tech bumper. Then anything else not listed on yours will need to be purchased.
