We cannot setup shipping dimensions on the site for bumpers. When the weight is over a certain amount the fedex option disappears and so do the other options. We have not been able to work that out of the shipping options list through software.
So you jump over this question and answer the others. Here is is again in case you missed it. And yes we know you are subscribed to the thread.

Where does the "original BMW bumper replica supplier" make these? I did a quick search and only found your post in the Site Specials forum. So now I'm asking you for the info since you know it.
Still here waiting for a response.

$99 for M3 Replica Bumper

$119 for M-Tech 2

Y so angry? For some reason we are not subscribed to this thread don't know why but no notifications.

When you buy a PC or Laptop, you start with a set price then based on options that price changes. Same here, you start with a set price then choose coupe or sedan + fogs or no fogs + shipping choice.

you can get any shipping you want and any options you want that's how options work

Give us a call if you are in CA, shipping prices are even better in state and delivery can be same day in most areas.

I feel like this is like everything else, a matter of preference. Myself I use DDM but they're right down the street from me so I use them to save on shipping and have had no issues with them thus far and their products have worked for me. However, I may be purchasing headlights from Umnitza in the future.
Also, @ Umnitza, does that "umnitza carbon fiber lip spoiler" fit an aftermarket M3 front bumper on an E46 sedan?

I'm a bit confused with this too, it says on your website that the mtech 2 bumpers are compatible with all non-m's and you can put it in the cart without specifying sedan or coupe (which adds a charge of $35 and $50 respectively)

What's the difference if you don't specify sedan or coupe?

Are the MTECH 1 and MTECH 2 interchangeable? Or do they use different hardware, etc? I never found a clear answer because most people who get Mtech 2 reps have stock (non-Mtech) bumpers to begin with...

I have an OE mtech 1 and considering an mtech 2 (rep or OE)

no angry. no deflection needed
Still not getting answers to questions which isn't a good sign of support from the company you represent. They're written down, 2-3 times now. not hard to find.
Where are these proclaimed "original BMW bumper replica supplier" made bumpers from? Where are they from please

Also I don't see how your $119.99 for the E46 M-Tech bumper is the same as your computer example. You can buy the computer without Options for the base or Standard price listed. In this case, there is NO standard/base price $119.99 E46 M-tech bumper, unless I'm wrong?? Only a base or lowest priced one of $154.99 for sedan and a Option then of an extra $15 for the Coupe. Here is the definition of OPTION from the dictionary: an item of equipment or a feature that may be chosen as an addition to or replacement for standard equipment and features

(sponsors have keywords that when posted alert you to the thread, so Yes you absolutely know about this thread)

drop one of the S's on that URL or you'll end up in some trash site. OEM is what I'll do. I saw the fitment with one of Umnitza's bumpers and it justified just going OEM. I'm not dissing their products, it's just not for me.




As far as the hardware goes, the 340 ish was for just the cover. Mike from their was awesome in helping me out with everything. I'd opt for UPS if the price is reasonable as greyhound shipping was slow.

Never understood why you cant ship these fedex/ups. I handle shipping and receiving for my company and ship a lot of heavy, large packages through fedex and UPS.

I know both companies have a weight limit, but there is no way the bumper exceeds this limit and weighs more than the heavy boxes of tile and stone I ship nation wide. Can't be size either, I deal with very large boxes all the time too.

This has been the main reason I have never bought a bumper from you guys. I'm not going to pay for shipping then have to drive 3 hours round trip to pick it up.

Exactly. Not everyone lives next door to a Greyhound terminal. You are missing out on some sales by not shipping these via FedEx/UPS-especially when your shipping calculator shows that it would be a cheaper shipping method.

That's enough for me. If I get it, I'll be going OE.

Ok geniuses. Let's figure this out. That's 40 miles round trip So that's about $8. Then idling is about another $1 in bumper to bumper Pittsburgh traffic, and then parking is about $1

Good Job...you passed math class

Ok thanks for the URL tip

1)What in god's name did you do to that first bumper?
2)Your foglight is still f'ed up
3)Umnitza says they have OEM fitment for sedans. I won't believe otherwise until people post pictures
