Tischer BMW for OEM. Khoalty or Umnitza for aftermarket. But go oem. I've had both, and my oem bumper is far better in every way!

So, you paid twice at much?

Kidding, kidding. The only way I would ever buy a bumper from them is if they paint it right from the factory.

maybe he didn't want to cheap out on his car? I'm sure the bumpers look ok, but the quality is not the same as OEM.

OEM parts at the dealer are almost always more expensive than OEM parts online. Only exception would be huge parts like the bumper, if they already have it there, or don't charge for shipping.

I make my dealer match online pricing. The list price for everything needed was like $1100. I asked them to match it (which they do for all other parts for me). After matching it was like $500. The guy on the phone laughed at me. I had to speak to the parts manager to get that much off.

Long story short: I don't cheap out on my car for less than perfect parts. And I get online pricing at my dealer.

Also: they will never have a bumper at the dealer. It was special ordered. Still didn't pay for shipping.

Yep that's the bonus of going oem from the dealer..no shipping fee. my dealership (Crevier) would always match Tischer. so just be sure to get the best price first. heck China didn't even have copies of the MTech bumpers when I did mine on my Coupe. but even if they did I wouldn't have.

Lots of vendors carry those. Check the sponsor section. I would definitely spend the extra to go OE on it though.

I've also gotten used parts from Bavarian auto recycling (http://www.bmrparts.com/). No affiliation, just paid $100 for an output shaft compared to $500 from the dealer
