Who sells M3 bumpers that fit actual M3s?

All I can find are replica for non-Ms, CSL bumpers, and vorsteiner stuff.

I just want an OE style bumper. Need to replace the one on my car.

Something to think about. I've seen one in person and the fitment is good.

Ebay is a good bet or classifieds here. Genuine used bumper covers can be had for fairly cheap.

BMW for OEM. I think you're only going to find CSL reps aftermarket.

Yea...might stay used. I know Umnitza sells them but you have to attach the plastic mounts...ends up bring more of a PIA than its worth.

but from your earlier photos just have a body shop fix yours. You can have them shave the reflectors and LP holes too.

again if you're going to buy it new from BMW, order the european spec one . It doesn't have the holes cut in it for the reflectors. much cleaner

It's for a track car. A cheaper replica is preferable...reflector holes are not really important.
