Performance parts question!

I need to clarify a few things (definite answers) about the bmw performance parts for the 135i.

1) From what I understand, all 135s come with the M bumpers. I know that there are carbon splitters for the aero bumper. Are there carbon splitters for the M bumper?
2) Again, is it possible to install the rear diffuser to the M bumper, or do you have to install the rear aero bumper first?

I don’t think we ever figured out the splitter question and if there are some for the stock 135 bumper.

The rear diffuser fits the stock 135 bumper.

The splitters are only for the Aerodynamic bumper. BMW is working on another set of splitters or lip for the M front bumper.

The diffusor will fit right on.

The rear BMW performance aero bumper and the rear M bumper are the same thing.
The CF diffuser will fit both of them.

As for CF splitters up front... A vendor on here recently started selling CF splitters for the stock 135 M-tech front bumper. The post is currently on the front page of the Commercial Sales forum.

is it ?

Do the CF Splitters listed for the M Aero bumper fit the 135i. The only difference in the picture seems to be the 135 has ducts and the one in the picture has fog lights.

Will it fit the 135 ????
has anyone done it and have pic's ?

I will be more clear.

The 135i comes standard with an "M" style bumper. The "Aerodynamic" bumper is what BMW's Concept Car (the BMW 135tii) has. The splitters are made for this bumper, not the standard equipped bumper

Those splitters the E87 "M" bumper P/N 51 11 7 837 420 and BMW NA has confirmed they will not fit US-SPEC "M" bumper 51 11 7 892 587. If anyone is willing to try anyway, let me know! I will refund the money if it doesn't work, with the exception of freight

If I was local to you I would give it a try, But I don't fancy paying freight to the UK to find out on top of an already pricey part.
