While the 1M bumper looks good, the ones that actually fits our 135 are made from FRP or other materials and fitment is always a challenge. The performance bumper is urethane and should fit without modifications. I will like a side by side pic to see if the performance bumper is or not a little lower than stock.

Yes these are always a huge challenge to fit--not only to the body but attachment of parts like grills, lights and anything that is bracketed on the inside of the stock bumper.

They should have the same height. If the BMW Perf bumper was lower, you would likely need new wheel well liners and a new front underbody shield, which you do not.

Ninja2, your E87 looks amazing with the performance bumper. Very nice car and photo.

They both look good compared to the regular 128i. The Performance one just looks different than the other 135s on the road, lol.

So much for my first post on this forum..lol... but I was wondering if there is an aftermarket front lip for the performance bumper? My apologies if this is an ignorant question - I'm picking my new car (135i) up in a few weeks and I've started planning for a few mods.

Yes, there's a thread about fitting the kerscher lip on it. I did it on mines.
