1M front bumper

Hey guys, so i really want to buy a 1M style front bumper, but the ones i found say that it requires modification to fit since the 1m body is wider, are all the ones people have on here the same way? Is there alot of modification to do? Or is there a model that fits the 135i body a bit better? Thanks in advance guys!

I believe there are several replica 1M bumper that will fit without any other modifications. It won't be any wider, just look like 1M bumper. I just googled it and came up with two really quickly. One by DTM FiberWerkz and the other at ModBargins. Kerscher also make one, I'm sure there are others.

Mine is from Turner. Bumper itself fits perfect and is OEM quality.

Just be careful. You need custom fog lights with this bumper and they forgot to ship. Then when they did both fog lights are taking on water. They will only replace one light claiming because both are defective It's my fault because I must have "dropped" them. :/

google returns pretty much same results to everyone...it's rather unbiased

either way you got your answer; DTM, Reiger, Mod_Bargains, Turnermotorsports, eBay...they all carry the e82 1M style bumper. It's a really common thing since they came out

I'm not a bodykit type guy but the 1m style is on my future list, very aggressive and still OEM looks.

You know what's hilarious? People thinking the mod_bargains, turnermotorsports, and ebay bumper are different. ITS THE SAME THING. Cheap chinese bumper with good fitment but crappy weird lower grilles and foglight holes, seriously WTF?

So other than that ONE bumper:

Kerscher, DTM, Rieger, Arkym (if you can find it), end.cc, or OEM if you want to do a front end conversion (big bucks). Prior Design also makes a 1M styled widebody kit (big bucks).

Cheap? Have you had any experience with it first hand? Mine is of the exact same or close to quality as my OEM bumper.

Yes, seen a few in person. Cheap =/= Crap. Perhaps I should have used the word inexpensive, but I couldn't be bothered. I stand by the statement that the fog light grilles look bad.
