Dumb question I know, but what kind of rear bumper do I have? I keep seeing stuff about an mtech2 rear bumper. Is that mine, or did something different come on the sport package?

Does anyone make parts for the mtech 1 rear bumper? Like a CF diffuser for example? I will probably get an Mtech 2 front bumper eventually as mine is pretty beat up, but I think the rear is ok.

There isn't really any aftermarket support for the M-Tech I bumpers. I think they look good though

That looks like a high quality job! Nice!

I'd keep the rear bumper stock. I like the M-Tech 1 kit.

Yeah I like my bumpers ok, it's just that the front is looking a little worse for wear. Might replace it eventually. It was so nice out today I was able to wash it finally.

Great looking MT1. I'd definitely do black headlight/corner trim, but these cars just look really good out of the box.

I had those whees on my old ZHP sedan for a few months. They were very polarizing. People either said, "sweet wheels!" or, "Ew." I found it odd!

Funny, I had a similarly odd reaction to them. When I first saw the bare Z4 wheel on craigslist, I said wow those are ugly. Then I thought, eh, I should see what they look like on an e46 just for s&g. I found a few pics and I was instantly sold. I think they look sweet on the car. Def my favorite winter set up so far, especially considering the cost vs a cheapo tirerack set.

No hids, probably doing a retrofit. I paid $150 per wheel for the repair and refinish.
