My Ride: 2005 325xi
Upgrading to M Tech II Bumpers

Someone rear-ended my 2005 325xi so I got a little insurance money. I thought I would take the opportunity to upgrade from my regular bumpers to M Tech II. While I'm at it I want to do the front and back bumpers as well as the side skirts. My questions are:

1) Do any of you have experience with either http://www.umnitza.com/ or http://www.khoalty.com/ and do they have quality bumpers?
2) How easy are these replacements as a DIY? Would I be better off having a shop install them?

Any advice would be appreciated. I'm excited to make some upgrades to my car.

Thanks.

I bought mine from Khoalty and they seem pretty solid. I haven't put them on yet but they test fitted nicely. You are definitely better off having a shop install them because you need to cut your old bumper off the bar and glue the new one on... its a bit of a pain. Make sure you get the foglight ducts for them as well or they look cheaply done.

There's a few people who have the Umnitza ones though, I'm sure you can find them in the forums.

ew really? Is that just a coupe thing?

I had to do no such butchery when I installed OEM bumpers.
