Best brand of aftermarket Bumper for 128i

So since I was able to finally get my hands on a set of the Performance Side Skirts, I'm looking at bumper options. I know I will get a rear 135i style with a lower valance.

Front bumper I'm looking at 1M or M-Tech or M-Sport if that's what it's called.

Also been looking at the Rieger Front Bumpre that's sold without PDC and Headlight Washers. The thing I like about it is it's a completely different look from all the others. A nice change, but not hugely overstated. But I can't find any reviews for what people thought about it.

Who in your opinions make the best direct fit ones with little or no modification?

Car is an Alpine White 2011 128i with fog-lamps, no headlight washers. I've seen plenty listed on the auction site that state OEM fitment.

Plan is to install everything myself, and then have the car painted so they can blend as needed. So as close to direct bolt-on is desired.

2011 128i: 3:73 Rear Diff, 3SI Intake, AA Headers, Magnaflow Catback, AFE Scoops, Turner Silicone Hose, Charcoal Delete, StageFP Stage 2 Tune, APEX ARC8, MILVS Coming!!
