1M style replica bumper for 08 135i

Hey... anyone have experience with either the Turner Motorsports or ECS Tuning replica 1M front bumper cover (for 08' or equiv 135i)? Direct bolt on? Fitment (I hear fender liner/bumper gaps on some solutions)?

They both sell one with airducts (no fogs) and headlight washers. I plan to have installed by a body shop and they won't be happy if it has to be jury-rigged to fit properly (and for me if they add $$$).

Thanks...

As far as I know, no one has been able to find a number that doesn't have a liner to bumper gap. Just the shape of the bumper it's going to happen. As far as duct versions, double check to see if they have picture of the bumper itself and compare it to the other options. The bumpers meant for fogs are more accurately shaped and proportioned than the "duct" versions I've seen. Many have simple trimmed the fog light versions and used OEM ducts for a much closer to OEM look.

Thanks for the input... I know I won't be happy with a fender/bumper gap. I'll keep looking...

Hey there!
This is my first post as a comment. Saw this and wanted to share. I purchased Europlug 1M Replica Bumper to fit OEM fenders. I did have the fog light vents but I purchased OEM 1M ducts and cut all the brackets for the fog lights. I don't know about fitment of the ECS one but Europlug fits 100% perfectly. Here are some pics of my car:

I believe Chaddilac2000 has the one from ECS. He's got a build thread in the photos section of the forum if you want to check it out.
