M-Tech bumper help

Quick question, I would really appreciate some help.

I am purchasing an M-Tech bumper for my 2003 325xi. Instead of having the license plate attachment, is there a way to just get a piece of the black molding for the center?

So that I would have no black license plate molding, just the black molding strip across the bumper.

I want it to look like the attached picture of the silver car, and eliminate the license plate bracket in the other pic

Welcome and I see this is your first post. You will be able to answer a lot of your own questions if you search using the search tab in the menu. Chances are, any question you will have has been answered before. If not, then create a thread like you did.

That being said, they do offer a mod where you can put an adapter for your license plate right in that tow hitch square of your bumper so you can attach a front plate.

or you could also use this. http://www.skenedesign.com/FPBracket/index.shtml
I just ordered one and haven't received it so not sure about the fitment. But for other fanatics it seemed to have worked. See here: http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthr...927&highlight=

Since you're new you should take the time to search a bit before making a thread. Welcome to the forum.
