best place to get mtech II

so, what are the better fitting mtech II kits available? I am having no luck finding any that i feel i trust. I have had bad experences buying parts from extreme deminsions, and they seem the be the dominate seller of the mtech II kit. Also the rear bumper they offer doesnt look like the right bumper to me.

OEM from http://www.thebmwpartstore.com/ or Tischer. The price isn't that much more and you won't have to worry about the fit.

ok, so looking at the kits its only offered for coupe, or sedan. since the convertibles with an 03 convertible would I need to get the up 00-02 coupe kit, or the 03 up kit.

Use http://realoem.com to find out the part number and contact Mike at http://www.thebmwpartstore.com/ he can help if you have the part number or will do research if you need help. Price will be about the same as Tischer

It's not the bumper that kills you, it's all the little parts that add up if you do it right.

Sedans will have the strip, coupes do not.
