Well today while I was in Staples, someone backed into the front bumper of my 328iC... there are scuff marks on the passengerside of the bumper as well as a crack, and the grill panel was scuffed too in that corner. I was wondering if an M3 bumper cover could be easily swapped on instead of just getting another regular 3 series cover.

This is where I would order it from:

bumper cover? is that just another way of saying a new bumper, or is it something else? if it is the full bumper, looks like a good deal. but i know nothing about that site.

The cover is just the plastic covering, the skin of the bumper basically, not the metal part behind it.

hey if it fits, that's a pretty sweet deal. just as long as the main part of the bumper (which you won't replace) isn't bent or anything...

I just replaced the shell on my 325is to an m3 bumper.........it's pretty easy and quick just gotta take a bunch of screws off. I agree with Cruzin, that pic is diff not an M3 bumper. You can always check ebay if you want to save some $$

That will not fit!!!!!!!!!!! What will fit (without modification) is what is listed on their site- all m3's. I just had a shop replace my regular 328 bumper with an m3 bumper. From BMW san diego, they had to order the m3 bumper for the 328 because most of the mounts are different. You might be able to make it fit, but I dunno about that. The full m3 bumper (front) is available @ bavauto for like 609 bucks.
