Hi,

I wonder if someone could help me please.

We have a 318is coupe with the sport pack, 99 T reg, however my other half decided to remodel it with the help of an embankment.

Its at a garage now being repaired via the insurance company and having visited it yesterday I have noticed a different bumper has been put on the front.

The old original one had 2 colour coded plastic "fins" across the front beneath the number plate and the new one has a black plastic grill.

Is the new one from the M3 series of the same era?

I've tried searching the web but cant really find any pics/info.

Attached is a pic of the old style bumper - taken from the net.

Thanks in advance,
Daren

That looks like a grilled m3 front bumper without the grill.
