Wait the mtech II base is now $120? I swear I payed almost $500 got the hid fogs shipped to Hawaii! Lol I could have payed $200 more for an oem one from the dealer. I finally got it after a month, because they sent me the coupe fitment. After everything is said and done, they did come through though, and I love my Orion lites!

I've seen 3 after market bumpers... None fit. If you have these bumpers and are supporting this company. Post up pics of your car with the bumpers. I know that sh!t doesn't fit. OEM or get a honda!

The first thing that comes to my mind when you mention Umnitiza is their horrible magazine ads. Why can't they find someone who can properly resize their photos? Every single one is so pixelated and stretched out so far that I can't even recognize the car in the photo! And they still look like the ads I saw in magazines from 10 years ago. To be honest, I have never even bothered to look at their site, because their advertising is so crappy. I was convinced they were just an old warehouse somewhere in China. It did not give me any confidence in their company...I am very suprised to read that they are located in CA.

I must admit, until this post, this entire thread was reading like a paid advertisement to me. Probably why Łmnitza hasn't chimed in yet.

IMO its worth going OEM even if it does cost a couple hundred more. Price difference is not as significant once painting and fitting are taken into account.

Clearing some stuff up.


1) We got a gigantic new shipment of bumpers - not 1 container but many and as a result, we got some economies of scale we didn't before + we lowered our shipping container cost - so bumper prices went down. We are not using cheaper knock off Chinese bumper replicas - we are using original BMW bumper replica supplier (please search we have described the differences as well or contact us for a link).


2) Mtech II bumpers are the best fitting bumpers, if you had a poor fitment, it was likely due to: a) a bad body shop or b) you chose a different type or style of bumper (the M3 rep is poorer fitting unless you know exactly what you are doing- there is a great DIY located here)
http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthr...=828597&page=2

3) Our prices are $119 + $35 or $50 + 50 for fogs + $59.99 for shipping, however, these are not cheaper quality bumpers that you see on eBay and others sell for nothing. They also include more expensive fogs lights that are not cheap $4 china knock offs with no markings on them. If your fogs have writing on the front lenses, you have the good ones. This is how some can offer a much much lower price on bumpers with fogs because you are getting lower quality fog lights that are just "throwaway" fogs.

4) Shipping options are:
$59.99 flat rate - $40 if you are in CA (call in only)
$95 door to door business
$105 door to door residential
$XXXX depending on Canada, HI, or International.

Greyhound offers delivery door to door, if you live more than 20 miles away from a Greyhound their delivery charges range from as little as $15 to as much as $30, but not much more and they are better at delivering bumpers. There are many many benefits about the Greyhound delivery in the 48 contiguous states than Pilot or other companies.

Give us a jingle.
Thanks!
ASK FOR TIM.

So just to clear this up, you sell no E46 M-Tech bumpers for $119 right? So why not just list the bumpers correctly at either $154 Sedan or $169 Coupe that seems rather close to False Price Advertising or a Bait and Switch don't you think?

Where does the "original BMW bumper replica supplier" make these? I did a quick search and only found your post in the Site Specials forum. So now I'm asking you for the info since you know it.

I have to say it's really great that you guys are allowing Greyhound as an option for your customers. Knowing they are definately looking for the cheapest deal this caters to help them out.

When I add the bumper to my cart, then update my order with my zip code for shipping options, it then gives me an option to use FedEx Ground shipping at only $56.59. So, for almost $3 less than Greyhound, I can get FedEx to deliver it to my house and not have to drive 120 miles round trip to the nearest Greyhound station. Is this information correct?

Umnitza pricing is good, their orion v2's are amazing, and their customer service is questionable at best. I'd be VERY careful boys. Haven't any of you heard the old saying "if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is"

No, Fedex is not an option for these bumpers.

We cannot setup shipping dimensions on the site for bumpers. When the weight is over a certain amount the fedex option disappears and so do the other options. We have not been able to work that out of the shipping options list through software.

However, a secret is that if you do choose the greyhound shipping if it's close enough to the GPX shipment cost, we let it slide and ship by GPX and notify you. This only works if the shipping option for Fedex cost is close to GPX so not always.

If you provide your ZIP, we can find a station near you.

Best way to go is is here www.shipgreyhound.com and go to locations.

Smolck, who are you and why do you say this? if you have or had an issue, talk to Tim he can assist you.

Pretty much. Spec'd for an E46 Sedan with non-Xenon fogs I get $264.97 shipped. It's still very cheap but it's kind of dishonest to advertise it as "just $119."
