modbargains, eurospec and umnitza

Dose modbargains, eurospec and umnitza use the same material for M3 Replica for BMW e46? because umnitza they have it a lot cheaper than modbargains and eurospec. So I'm not sure which company should i buy from

If I want to get both m3 bumper front and rear which one should it get

and this is why I want to get a new rear bumper; At first I think I will get only front bumper but .... ;(





or you guy think i can bring to shop fix it?

this is my car



what you guy think??

They are all Polypropylene Plastic. Most will state if they are fiberglass which you should stay away from. I bought mine from eurospec.

I don't think there's a difference at all. I've seen Umnitza bumpers in person and the fitment is fine.

Like they said above, they are all the same. Go with the cheapest, umnitza. I've heard good things about their bumpers. I'm sure they all come from the same factory in China anyways.

Did you factor in shipping? In the end, the lowest price may not end up being the cheapest.

All bumpers are that same type of plastic as mention above. STAY AWAY from fiberglass. that **** is garbage. will crack easy. Will most likely find a fiberglass bumper on ebay. any of the sponsors above will sell you good quality bumpers. just go with the best price and shipping. And as for your bumper. its easily repairable. as some e46ers would say. That'd buff right out.

But if you want an upgrade. id say go for it.

Umnitza sells the epoxy m3 Rep bumper while euro spec sells the one made by hc racing. That's why there is a price difference between vendors

Deadpass where do you get your information?

Our bumpers are all polypropylene, there are many different kinds of bumpers.
The M3 Rep bumpers are ALL THE SAME - buy the lowest, ours is $140 shipped on Bumper Bonanza special
The M3 CSL Bumpers are almost always from HC Racing and we sell those for $369 shipped

Ummitza has a horrible reputation for customer service, I get my information on this board just look it up, there's still a few threads that haven't been deleted, hate to bash a business in which the owner is trying to make a living but we dont all deserve a free pass either, especially in a competitive business like that.

Do a search on "iPhone4 Sucks" and you'll get hundreds, thousands of people saying it shouldn't be purchased. Funny, Apple sold 1.7M units within a few days of release.

We have a lot of customers 10+ years in business, if you have 30K+ customers, you may have only 1% unhappy, but that 1% is still 300+.

Anyways, have a happy holiday season, don't stress, give us a call.

- BTW - the Holidaze coupon code is active for that product you were interested in.

Apple still sucks though.

I have been purchasing from Umnitza since 2003-4, I have dealt with them while living in Germany excellent service, and now living in Hawaii, I myself have messed up when ordering from them and it was immediately corrected by Umnitza. Umnitza is a quality vendor and business. Purchasing from which ever vendor is a personal choice. I have even recommended Umnitza to several friends who are new to the BMW scene who are looking for certian items and they were all happy with the product and service. Myself I purchase from the one who can provide me the product I am looking for, for the most resonable price as shipping is the one that kills me here in Hawaii. Even my wife has purchased products from Umnitza with no issues and you know that most wifes and girlfriends are clueless when you talk to them about a M3 front bumper or CSL V1 or V2 front bumper. I have not personally checked all vendors to see the price of the bumpers however I do know that Umnitza has a really good deal on the bumper bonanza sale here is the link.
