Where should i buy M-Tech bumpers from?

I have decided between ddm tuning or umnitza to buy my bumpers. I was wondering what reviews people have on these two companies. I would prefer umnitza because the shipping is much less. And I live near buy so I may try and do a will call. I was just wondering how fitment is for each of these. Wanna get the best I can, for a good price.

Search around and you'll read a lot of unfavorable reports about ddm tuning, and to a lesser extent umnitza. I'd go with Khoalty or Euro-Spec.

If you're going m-techII front, then the mtechII rear seems like a no brainer.

I really am concerned with aftermarket ZHP bumpers. Nobody has provided definitive answers or pictures showing fitment and/or quality. And sh!tty, upside down cell phone pictures with peanut butter over the lens from two football fields away doesn't count. (See control arm pics in sig) I suppose I could poke around at Bimmerfest :d

I know both DDM and Umnitza have them. But I will look around. I plan on placing my order with khoalty soon. I've heard good things. How good is the fitment though?

This guy has a video of his whole transformation (including ZHP bumpers). Pretty sure they are aftermarket... Skip foreword to the bumper install part. Pretty good pics.

FYI, Khoalty and DDM tuning use the exact same bumpers. I wouldn't be surprised if Umnitza does as well. I think Tischer used to sell the entire ZHP body kit sans wheels for around 900 dollars or something close to that. Was a good deal for OEM parts.

^Nope, not what I was looking for. I want to see better pictures. I'll just poke around at Bimmerfest. Thanks for the link though!

The pic in my sig is of a ddm tuning bumper. The bumper looks great (aside from the black molding being a little off), but I would've rather bought from a different vendor. Ddm blows

Ya Umnitza is very close buy. Not sure if I need to order it online, or I can just go to their store. I will call them and ask specifics.

Only the front is aftermarket. The rear is OEM...
