Awful, just keep it oem and add a splitter if you are feeling crazy.

BMW has ripped off other companies for years, Alfa Romeo, etc. I guess they know a good thing when they see it, or steal it.

I like it better than the stock catfish-gasping-for-air-out-of-water look.

But I would pull those LED's and fill the holes in....that would make it MUCH better.

as far as I know, BMW doesn't provide any real feedback with the aftermarket companies

so you can say "Hamann is copying Audi"

I agree. I actually like the bumper as a whole.....but the execution of the LED's looks like an afterthought.
