Very tempting....what is stopping me is the fresh paint, even after being cured anything can go wrong. Shipping companies can give 2 sh*ts about how they treat your package Thats it I'm moving to the westcoast!

Alright I think I'm ready to pull the trigger on this but first a few more questions. What can I do about shipping insurance against a cracked or damaged paint job on the new bumper? How can I be positive that the paint will match the rest of the car? What's the timetable looking like for one of these from order until I receive it?

+1 This. I have a 'hard' color to match (anthracite gray) so I will need to send my tow hooks. I will include both front and rear tow hooks and label appropriately.

Exactly right, that's why we're charging more since we have to package it more.

You can ask for insurance, we usually do $5 for every $100 you want for insurance. You cannot be 1000000% sure the paint will match because of environmental variables. You can give us your paint code and potentially ship us your tow cover as a sample, but you cannot do it any other way to be perfectly certain.

If you are doing front and rear bumpers, then yes, that would be definitely advisable.

Awesome - I'd like to do this before the deal expires! I am looking at an MTech2 for my e46 with fogs.

How much is installation? What would be total cost for a local buyer?

Does anyone have pictures of the pre-painted bumpers installed?

If we are local, how much more would it be to have the paint matched to your car?

How much longer are you going to have this promo? I want to get a mtech 2 front bumper and maybe side skirts for my 2001 330ci but winter is just starting to come because I live in Canada and didnt want to get these until my summer wheels and good weather comes back. I dont want to pay a lot for the paint and you guys have an amazing deal. I am going to purchase your orion v2 angel eyes very soon here so that would be great if you guys got back to me. Thanks!
