Rear Ended - 1M (Rep) Rear Bumper ?

Hey guys,

Recently I was rear ended and was looking to benefit from this situation by having a 1M replica rear bumper as a replacement. Was looking into these two:

Anyone have any thoughts on these or any experience with either of them?

I will also be doing a custom quad axle back exhaust to complete the look.

Since the replica is fitted for a 135i I will not have to worry about the wide body extensions.

Looks like they are Kerscher rear bumpers. Which are pretty good. Most just do the 1M rep front bumper that they have. Haven't seen many with their rear bumper.

Kerscher has them listed at $617. Those you show are a lot cheaper... not sure why.

This one also ships from Hong Kong. Isn't Kerscher based in Germany?

I'd be a bit worried about Hong Kong but those prices are great. That looks even cheaper than a new stock m sport rear bumper.

I am a bit skeptical as well, however their their website looks legitimate.

Just out of curiousity, how are you going to approach the quad exhaust setup?

I would attempt a custom 3" axle back as shown here




Only issue would be the battery.
