Question

Hi everyone,

I have a '01 330ci and I'm trying to decide ghead which is better to get as a whole Front Bumper Body Kit in regards to finished look, durability, weight, etc. Anyone that can give me some advice on the +'s/-'s on Fiberglass vs. Polyurethane kits would be VERY APPRECIATED!!!

Thanks everyone...

Hi ! I have been working on bumpers for past 15 years , in my personal opinion polyurethane is better ,because is resistent for any damage ( is more flexible with any small crashes ), but is havyier than fiber glass. Fiber glass is light , but very fragile-any hit bumper to bumper and splits like a beer bottle.Polyurethane is easier for any repair, after painting with an original coating , there is no diffrence in apperance betwen poly and fiberglass, so choice is yours. Best regards- Zibby.

It's worth paying as much as double for polyuro. Reason being, fiberglass breaks so easy, and with polyuro, you can fold it to fit it into the package. Really, you'll pay a lot more in repairs if you go fiberglass
