Bumper fitment please help

I ordered an m3 bumper from khoalty and I need help. When I ordered it, it said it fits all e46 1999-2005. My car is a 2004 facelift and it looks like the brackets on the bumper are pre facelift. So o tried sliding it onto my bumper support and my bumper support is too wide. Do I need pre facelift brackets and a pre facelift bumper support. Please help.

Do you have a coupe? Did you get sent a sedan bumper by mistake? Pictures would help. Replica bumpers are known to have poor fitment too, so you very well may need to adjust your bumper supports as well.

I have a sedan. And by support I'm talking about the metal piece that mounts to the bumper shocks. Also I don't think I can add photos from my iPhone I'll have to wait until I'm home to add some

It looks like you use tapatalk. Super easy to add photos with the app.

If you have a facelift sedan you will need the brackets when changing your bumper.

Yep. You may need brake ducts for M3 bumper as I'm not sure but for MTech 2 and maybe 1 it's a definite

The e46 coupes are wider than sedans. I ordered an m3 bumper once that was supposed to fit all e46, but it was too wide for my car and had ripples after installing it. I got a refund and had to spend more for a sedan-specific m3 bumper from someone else. Not sure if you may have received a coupe bumper by mistake, but it will be obvious once you put it on the car.
