Hey guys, a dump truck decided my front bumper was in the way, and decided to run over it. The companies insurance is going to cover everything. I'm going to be allowed about $300 for my bumper, but I'd like to replace it with something other than the stop bumper.

Has anyone seen aftermarket front bumpers in the $300 range? I've seen some on ebay for about $300, but they look pretty questionable.

I might, but everyone put's M3 bumpers on. I'd like something a little more unique, but I probably will end up going with an M3 just because there are so many aftermarket products for the M3 bumper.

They're only giving you 300$ for that? Get a few bodyshops to do an estimate, I'd be surprised if it was that low. It seems that it should be higher.

I'm getting about $1400 from the insurance company. The cost of the factory bumper is about $300. It's pretty cheap, but BMW did sell a lot of 3 series with that bumper.



I'll probably go with the M3 bumper from Bekkars. Thanks for the help finding it!

Look for a used M3 bumper. They can be had very cheap if you look around.

So $300 for the bumper and the rest int paint and install right? Look at the E36 and E46 M3 style bumpers. You can find them on bavauto.com.

Ha, I read that before clicking the link... Maybe you ruined it for me, but it reminds me of those Chevron smiling cars... I don't really like it... but I wouldn't suggest buying your bumper from a site anyway... everything I've ever bought online always looks cheap and not really the same as it did in the picture.
