Just a quick question. Is an M3 front bumper a direct replacement for my 1997 318ti Compact?

I think these bumpers look so much better!

Haha! I don't know about that yet! You know the bumper I mean, the one with the nice black lip and the bigger mouth.

Yeah check those web sites out. I will probably get a genuine M3 front on eBay. Around 250 with fogs.
