Looks like I'm gonna have to stroll on over to the 3 series forums to see if I can get one for my 328 in the meanwhile. You see the one on John Zhangs f20? SEXEH!

I spoke to a gentleman at LTBMW and he qouted me a whopping 1400 for the bumper painted. And 1050 not painted. He said its soo expensive because it's not mass produced yet, it's two OEMbumpers fused together.. But 1400?! A little steep no?! :

That is the price if you want one right now because they have to use 2 OEM bumpers to make it. If you wait until they make a mold of the one in the thread and mass produce it then the price will be considerably less.

for 2 oem bumpers + the work to fuse them + painting for that, no I think that's a hell of a deal.

but personally, I'll just wait for the mass produced version.

went ahead and contacted schmiedmann for the kerscher front bumper.

who knows how long this will take to be released plus the lines don't look as good as the kerscher bumper. that and you cant beat under 900 shipped and painted from europe for the kerscher.

$900 shipped and painted? My only worry is that it's fiberglass.. I'd consider getting the rear bumper thou

I talked to LTBMW about three weeks ago on getting some work down on my car.

They have yet to get back to me on how long it will take or cost. Feel like they were just playing around with me... Anyway...

I asked about the 1M bumper and they told me they have no idea when they will release it but if I want to place an order everything would cost me $1400.

To me.... this already screams to me LOST CAUSE!!!!!!!!!!

I am really starting to feel like these company "LTBMW, IND, Vorsteiner, etc" Don't really care about helping the little guy. They seem to only help out people that have names and are willing to shell out tons and tons of money.

I wish the end.cc was more cost effective, that one looks spot on.. I like the kerscher rear bumper I'm just worried about the fiberglass. I've seen many cars with cheap body kits on the highway and their kit is flailing around like paper in the wind, I don't wanna be that guy

http://endcc.jp/products/01/e82.html states "FRP" .. (read: fiberglass)

It would be ignorant to assume all fiberglass parts are shit though... there is a lot of variables (materials/time/resin) in play on the quality of any composite part.
