    ive just been browsing ebay and noticed that there are a couple of types of bumpers i was just wondering if anyone new if one is the facelift version or could you choose etc

    this is whats on my car now (now damaged hence reason for looking for another)

    found this and think it looks a bit more sporty with the splitter im planning to get i think it would look quite good any ideas/opinions

    They are both standard bumpers why not go for a MTech one or one of a M3

    They are both standard bumpers, but the second looks similar to an M3 bumper with slats!

    If you are going for either, I'd recommend the second one.

    If you can find/afford one, try to get an M3 one, but watch out for fakes!!

    Fakes have none of the black trim, genuine will have the trim plus BMW stamped with a part number!

    the bumper that is fitted to your car is the facelifted version
    the one on ebay is the early version (must be one of the last if its on a p plate)

    To be honest, out of the standard bumpers, i prefer the early one

    However, the M3 nes just make me moist


    Women are like fairground rides..... fu*king mental!

    My car is a pre-facelift and on a '96 (P, registered in July '96) so it was late '96 that the facelift models actually came out

    Facelift standard bumper definately looks nicer that the pre imo.

    i prefer the early one to be honest its got a bit of mtec about it
    you could always go for one of the cheap replica bumpers made out of plastic, steve23002 has one on his 325 and it looks pretty good
