What are your current fogs?

I believe that only MT2/M3 fogs are interchangeable.

Looks like you have a regular facelift bumper, no you cannot reuse them.

If you do, you will want projectors down there too.
3000 Kelvins is ideal for Fog, and Snow.

You will have to get fog lights to put them into the bumper, that is if you want to use them and do the job fully.


The xenon ones regarding to what, projector fogs?

They are probably referring to an HID kit that you can install into the lights, DO NOT get that.

Is it possible to fit an Mtech 2 coupe front bumper on to a facelift sedan?

I'd assume not as every site I've looked on for them has you select if you have a coupe or sedan before you order so they're probably different

yes, you can fit an MTII bumper coupe/sedan are interchangeable.
yes, you do need fogs if you do not have an Mtech I or Mtech II bumper originally.
Yes, we offer the option for Xenons inside your fogs, it's our super slim kit, we highly recommend it.

You need sport brake ducts, center duct, wheel liners and support brackets. that alone is around $250

Please tell me what wheel liners you speak of?

I ordered my pre painted m tech 2 bumper from Umnitza in october and due to some ordering problems on their end that had it shipped to a wrong address i have yet to receive my bumper. They also refuse to take my phone calls which is defiantly problematic. Their company and operation is an absolute joke with zero customer satisfaction in mind.

Hey matt, your awful, maybe give me a call someday
