Think I own an expensive BMW? I have no pretentiousness about the vehicle I own, nor am I discounting the advice of anyone else. How are his bumpers perfectly fine when he clearly stated that they were damaged in a recent accident? I have no objection with OEM parts, to an extent. If he can afford them, or is willing to fork the premium out of pocket for them, that is his decision. But they asked for a product with a location. I simply gave an answer. Not everyone has the same budget for things like this.

Ask the people that purchase these products.There is no need for a "holier than thou" attitude because you assume you're more experienced and therefore more entitled to critically judging the experiences of others.

Do what you want, it's your car. Take the advice, don't take the advice, I don't give a damn. Good luck OP.

The one on Turner is likely going to be a higher quality item, but it is also a rep. To be honest, they are probably almost all made in the same factory. That seems to be a tendency with replicas like this. But the Turner is not going to be the EXACT item as the Khoalty.

It sounds like everyone was satisfied with the kohalty product, except for with the wagon. I'm looking into the rear bumper from them too.

Khoalty is replica, Turner is OEM.

Straight from Turner
This is a high-quality replica of the E46 ZHP M-Technic front bumper spoiler kit, which came on the "Performance Package" (ZHP option) 330i and 330Ci. It's a great low-cost alternative to the Genuine BMW front spoiler. This kit includes the bumper cover, both left and right M-Tech fog lights, fog light trim rings, mesh center grille, moulding strips, and license plate attachment strip (sedans use the mouldings, coupes do not use them and the spoiler comes with a smooth outer surface).

That's the exact one I was looking at! I don't think that price is too bad. That's probably the one ill go with. Any suggestions on rear bumper covers to match?

Yes but if you are looking at OEM, Turner is where to go.

A couple hundred bucks

Honestly though, you're paying for a better chance at getting good fitment. I'm not sure why nobody has recommend this yet, but unless you're 100% set on getting a new part I'd check the part out section in the classifieds for someone parting a ZHP sedan.

um.. I mean replace your VCG, CCV, FCAB, CV boots/axles, cooling system, every fluid in your car, then set up a emergency fund of 150% of the purchase price of your car for when things break. Then I think they'll let you buy a bumper.. still probably has to be OEM though
