I have heard they have fitment issues (at least for the coupe), and I heard you need to buy new brackets.. I got mine off MB and want to make sure it goes on right..

Where can I get new brackets?

Here?

Yes for coupe. This is the one I got. My mechanic owed me a favor and installed it for me I'm not sure bracket wise what it would need. It fits really good though.

ModBargains has the one for a coupe made to slap right on with whatever bumper guides you have. no BS.

No need for new brackets for the one I installed. Only fitment issue was with the fogs and the trim rings. Got the fogs in but still having a problem with the trim rings. The bumper mounts are straightforward.

If I remember correctly, the brackets are inexpensive ($20) ? I believe you can get them from the dealership. Just ask for pre-facelift or facelift bumper brackets. It's really not that big a deal.
