Several people do that, but you also needt to get the air ducts and foglights. They are different from stock.

That's sweet! But why is there only one foglight opening? Is this an air induction of some sort?

Anyone know about these bumbers? This is my favorite bumber for the stock E46 sedan (2005 330ci?). Are these available for aftermarket?

That is the m-technic bumper. It is stock with the ZHP 330i, 330Ci, and 330Ci convertible. You can get it at the dealer or from bavauto.com. I am sure other online stires also carry it. Bavauto charges $700 for the bumper and foglights, and about $140 for the brake duct assembly.

Incorrect, it is only offered on the 330i ZHP and 330ci ZHP (Performance Package). The 330ci and 330cic come with the standard coupe bumper.

I realize, but you said it was stock on the 2005 330ci and 330cic in your previous post

Since the discussion has swayed to non-M3 bumpers (my fault), how about this one? This is my other favorite ci / cic bumper. Is this offered for the sedan and is it offered aftermarket, or only at the dealer.

(Note: Ocean is not responsible for any quarrels that may result from conflicting arguments regarding what options these bumpers were offered with) ....joke.

Dealer. Super ugly bumper IMO.

I guess there was some ambiguity in my previous post. What I typed was meant to be read the same way one would the following sentence:

I went and bought blue shirts, pants, and socks.

In the sentence above, the adjective 'blue' modifies the nouns 'shirts', 'pants' and 'socks'.

I do apologize for my English. I am still learning the language.

When I lazily used the less cluterred version:

I hope to have thoroughly explained myself.

Ocean, I think the 3xxCi bumper should fit the sedans. Again, the buyer would have to inquire about the fitment of the brake ducts. Personally, I wouldn't "upgrade" to that. With the CSL, M3, and M-Technic options, aggregate to the aftermarket bumpers, that last one you suggest seems rather pedestrian.
