Have you found any CSL/M3 look bumpers that will actually fit?
I know by exp that the one that umnitza and others sells is junk. Fitted it on my old sedan and there are gaps and buldges.
On my coupe, there wasn't even a chanse to get it to fit.

I was looking at the csl look that mod bargain offers. Front tires are 215/35 rears are 225/40. The wheels I just bought from a guy. Not sure of the brand but I couldn't pass on wheels, tires and 2 spare wheels for $400.

We offer the same CSL but for a lot less than others, we have it in stock and ready to ship, $399 shipped in most cases to most locations.
All the CSL bumpers are made in the same factory, there is only one manufacturer for them.

I've been looking for a good CSL/M3 look rear bumper, have you found others then the ones modbargains and umnitza sell?

I cant find any CSL rear bumper for non-M in you store. So if you are refering to the M3 look bumper for 2d/4d, your research is off. Modbargains actually sell a CSL look rear bumper for non-M from DTM Fiberworkz. And the one you guys sell is literally $h!t. Tried several of them.

yes, we were confused, the rear is FRP - fiberglass, several people told us to avoid reselling it and we don't.
Boosted, still working on your quote.

I'm usually not a fan of black wheels but, they fit the car well. Good job so far.

Ya I hate black wheels but I do custom powdercoat and like previously said, I couldn't pass on the deal. Now that I've seen them on there tho, I'm gonna strip them and go high gloss black. Thx for the compliment!

progress

well it has a major headache, some busted knuckles and major alcohol abuse afterwards but i got my camber kit installed (with tons of help) and my fenders rolled. was able to bring it down about another inch and love the way the wheels fit now. very happy with the outcome. now to get the rear bumper and my exhaust done.
