Ok the bumpers are possible with lots of body work.

Here is a link on the issues.

http://www.bmwe30.net/cgi-bin/datacgi/data...0120&Section=01

If you are serious about a front end change check this out.

This agressive kit includes a great combination of styling from other BMW models. Both front and rear bumpers are complete replacments made from quality fiberglass, and can provide a weight savings of up to 50lbs.

Complete styling package includes:

Full front bumper
Signal light assemblies
2 Side Skirts
Full rear bumper

USD$1112.59

Ugg... Im sorry but I have to say that body kit = n

If you want an alternative to plastic bumpers I would recommend the BMP RS kit. It actually looks quite similar to the factory plastic bumpers.

You should just trade in your es, and get an i or iS, stay away from es n they are sorta bad news. get something with small bumper, looks a lot nicer. and i's are definetly more for your buck.

So you're telling a guy to stay away from a eta just because you don't like the bumpers?

I have a 1987 325 e and it works just wonderful, the eta is more eficcient than the i engine.

Have a Nice Day
