It's a quick install w/o a doubt. As Edris stated, there was GREAT delay because of the headlight assembly "issues" which I had no part of

In regards to the amber reflectors, I put the factory ones in. Matt had his clear reflectors painted but they didn't fit worth a lick. Of course, the OEM ones went in easily Don't worry, he'll have painted reflectors...

    haha, well it was funny, we were askin everyone on the forum about it and eventually we hit up home depot. They had nothing so we ended up using two butter knife, a hammer and a small screw driver, did the magic and we were amazed, haha.

    Yeah I bet we can do that bumper in 2 hours max next time, maybe less

    that was the biggest problem for us the night we did the install. once we got the bumper cover off the bracket were were stumped on how to get it back on so that it would stay. we ended up kluging it on (yes Home Depot was involved for us too) you should see under my bumper, its pretty funny

    the car is going into the shop next week to repair the damage caused by Sonnen, i wonder what they will think when they see how that thing is reinforced

    Hey Razor, was that you at Bellevue Square at around 2-3pm. I was in the silver 330i with my girlfriend. I am almost positive thats your car.

    PS, great rim choice.

    in response to hamann99 above -


    let just say we omitted the kitchen sink but not much else to make sure that bumper cover never came off unintentionally
