Question

What do you think is the best looking bumper you can install on your E36?

I have seen some very nice stuff like the E46 lookalikes (you talked about it in an older discussion):



$725 for the part. Do you know how much it would cost to install at $75 per hour or is it DIY?

Do you have other pics / suggestions?

Also, can you install a front bumper only? or do you have to upgrade other parts to make it match.

best looking one? IMO is the Mtech front with nearly any combination of lip or add on piece (ie- dtm splitters, etc)

I personally love the ACS lip on the factory bumper. Gives it a great agressive image yet maintains a subtle look.

the hamann style kits are really nice. you should try looking for kits on ebay. the e46 m3 bumper looks nice on a e36 also.

Also, can someone do me a big favor and post a pic of a normal 3 series with stock bumper, and a 3 series with an m3 bumper side by side?
