Knowing me i thought i would finish here but who wouldn't love a Zhp bumper . I order a new bumper, lens, halos/angel eyes, and smoked corners from Khoalty.







Everything was pretty straight forward and the fitment for everything was great! Oh i also painted my grill black. Just take the grill apart and sand it down and paint away

I got a good deal at some local paint shop to paint my bumper for $200. At first he wanted to charge me $400 for paint and install until he offered me $200 just to paint. So i took it. I used my school's lift to take off the bumper and do an oil change while I'm under there

Car is so low i have to use wood




Left the car at the paint shop so they can match the paint


I had to fit the bumper in the rear seat hanging from the window until I got home






Love the way it came out it ! Gives the car that extra sport look

Coming together, though that front plate trim piece has to go. Pick up the delete trim and I think it'll look even better.

a nice start! zhp bumper on the e46 looks so much better than the stock lci bumper. but those blacked out corners ruin it. a set of OEM clears with black housing would look better. lol at the "low" comment.
