OEM M3 Bumper on Pre-LCI E90

So I just ordered a new wald rear bumper and sideskirts and getting a custom quad 4 inch tipped exhaust put on, so im talking to a local guy who is selling an OEM m3 front bumper, but would it fit on the pre lci e90 since the grill set up is different on an m3 than a 2006 E90.


m3 front
the front of 330i

Doubt it. I think you'd need to change headlights, kidney grills, fenders, some air ducts, underbelly pan, and some mounting points. Get a Mtech and be done with it.

OEM M3 Bumper on Pre-LCI E90

That's what I was thinking, I'll probably go with m-tech or some other racing style bumper, m-tech is so overplayed

There are a few vendors who sell an M3 style front bumper... I'd say that with LCI headlights would give you a drastic change up front.

Adding a chin lip can improve the look of the pre-lci bumper? It's also a lot cheaper and easy to install.....i've had to touch up mine a few times already from hitting things....possum, curbs, etc..

As some members already mentioned, you can always look into purchasing a E90 M3 Replica Front Bumper for your PRE-LCI E90. We've had nothing but positive feedback from our customers who have installed the E90 M3 Replica Front Bumper that we carry. Here are pictures:








Oh, and it's on our black friday ad!

The going rate for the m3 bumpers are fairly affordable as well.
Most of us sell it for 350 shipped...just pick your favorite vendor. Anything above this cost is just pure extra profit for the company.
All e90 m3 bumpers are the same, the only difference is if it is drop shipped or really imported by the company.
It's always easy to find out if it is or not as the shipping bill of lading will
Note it.

OEM M3 Bumper on Pre-LCI E90

It's not even about the price, I just got my rear bumper imported from japan from Wald International and it cost a lot more than an mtech. It's about looking like an m3 that's been modded, so I'm going with partial parts from m3 and partial racing style. So I'll get m3 fenders and mirrors. Get a better m3 style hood, a real cool bumper, and I have racing style side skirts. This is a show car in progress.
