Thanks, this is way better than the first link (which was pretty worthless).

Looking for M Tech II bumper install DYI

So I bought the MTech2 Bumper from Umnitza -> http://www.umnitza.com/e46-mtech-2-s...an-p-1132.html

But I want the Ham Fog Covers. Does anyone know which ones fit the aftermarket bumpers? I asked quite a few people on eBay and they told me it would not fit, it only fits with OEM. Wouldn't the holes be the same size? Either way, has anyone purchased a bumper from Umnitza and purchased ham covers that fit? If so, where? Or if there's anyone else out there with information. I would greatly appreciate it I really want to get these covers.

That's a good deal on the bumper. Why do they say the Hamann covers won't fit? As you said, the openings should be identical.

I figured they would fit but I guess not. I Finally found some sellers on eBay that assure me they'll fit on aftermarket mtech & mtech2 bumpers. If for some reason I have trouble they'll refund me 100% ; and they're only $40.

Purchase three front m tech 2 - zhp front bumpers from umnitza.. Replaced only because somebody hit them but all fit perfect - no mods needed. To remove and install took a couple hrs just cause i had trouble fitting hid's behind bumper for fog lights... I then ordered ham fog Cover and they look great!
