Look at the showroom section of the forum to get some ideas. Google is your friend too. Generally, on prefacelifts, M3 bumpers look better, but some people frown on putting M3 bumpers on a non M. Its all your personal preference though.

I think I like the MTechII. The CSL looks great, but then what do I do with my foglight switch haha.

Personally if I had to get a csl bumper and lose my fog lights I'd upgrade my headlights fully.

Khoalty.com or umnitza.com are the cheapest. If I'm not mistaken, umnitza will paint your bumper for you for pretty cheap. Plus their customer service is great
