My Ride: '00 323i & 02 330xi
2002 330 xi (rear ended/hit & run) - Searching for a rear bumper

Either its too early in the morning or I'm just plum dumb. I need a part # for the rear bumper that comes with the sports package. I'm hearing its a hard find and much more expensive than the normal bumper.

I miss my 330xi w/cold weather, sports, and premium packages. I'm back to driving my 2000 323i w/sports package.

Sorry for the crummy pictures but you get the point.

When I was looking on realoem and I was a bit confused. I just wanted to double check the part number. Most bumpers I'm finding for resale aren't exactly the same.

I believe its M TRIM PANEL, BUMPER, REAR (SA715). I want to find the same design as what I had, but it doesn't have to necessarily be OEM. New or used is fine.


This would be a Mtech1 rear correct?

If so, where can I find this OEM or replica E46 MTech I for a 330xi (sedan)

This is probably what you are looking for the m1 retrofit. The bumper I would just order online somewhere or you could even just go back to oem or get another bumper.

You may be able to find one close that is already painted the right color.

I don't need it painted. I want the bumper, trunk, and side panels painted together. Thanks for the link. Checking it out now.

I'm not going to half ass it, if I would change it I would do a full body kit not just a rear. Right now for this car I like to keep it as factory as possible. A 330xi with this factory setup (mtech I) is very uncommon over here, so I rather keep that tiny bit of distinction.
