    We've got a non-M car and an M3 Evo just now. I was planning on upgrading the non-M with M3 bumpers.

    Now, I managed to source a front and rear bumper, and while the rear bumper is identical to our Evo, the front bumper seems different.

    The Evo has:

    bigger front mouth
    More pronounced nose at the number plate
    No chin at the bottom where it joins the splitter

    The front bumper I've got seems totally different, I'll let the pics do the talking.









    SO, what is the green bumper from?

    No joy with that I'm afraid. Is it possible its a non-M bumper with M3/Tec lower part? I don't think the standard E36 3 Series bumper has the "nose" like the M3 does as seen above.

    Tbh, I think I'll just sell it on and try and find another.

    Yes you are right....I see it now...That looks more like a standard bumper with a splitter on it...You can also see by the black trim on the M3 bumper....But then am wondering why its not coming up on realoem
