Not sure about the bumper, but i can surely vouch for turner. They are a great company I've bought countless parts from them and some of their own parts. I trust them over umnitza, khoalty, and jlevi for sure. I had some issues with khoalty (never shipping my order) and umnitza (rim that the balance was horrendously off) the sales guys at umnitza are nice though. Khoalty doesn't reply emails or call so beware.

Umnitza is running a deal for bumpers painted and shipped.

Why is your bumper a different color than the rest of the car?

I believe all of the vendors get their bumpers from the same place. Mtech II should fit really well!

The flash had sorta a weird effect on the photo...the bumper color closer to the middle is more accurate

Pre painted bumper= not fully color matched, just warning you.

Of course it won't be fully color matched. You can send them your tow hook covers and they will try to make it as close as possible.


Getting it painted at a local body shop is the better choice if you're looking for perfection. Much more expensive though.

How hard would it be for a Dinan bmw indy to install?

Would you be interested in installing the bumper yourself? It's not hard at all.


You have a facelift though so you would need prefacelift brackets. Other than that it's plug and play

Do you know of any instructions online to remove the front or rear bumper covers?

Come again? And what did you do? Just let him walk off? Just puzzled why you are worrying over this. Isn't the jerk responsible for the damage and picking up the tab?
