    2001 320d touring, aftermarket bumper??

    What do you all think, I'm looking at getting a bit of bodywork done on my touring, so thought of a M-sport front bumper, now I have found a aftermarket e46 M3 bumper, I am looking at getting the black trim inc the bumper trim colour coded but not sure which one would look best on the car?
    Any thoughts would be great

    Thanks,

    As above get the m-sport, the M3 isn't a straight fit as it's wider than the standard E46 and so will need cutting and shutting then filling, painting etc etc .

    Hi Simon the M3 one is not a original M3 bumper so this should fit, it's from a company called Mslyle

    Ah cool, so it's a straight fit then if your happy with the quality then go for it as it'll be subtly different to the msport and very unusual

    I thought about one of them then went for the m-sport one but do think the m3 one looks cool on a tourer and not to many out there let us know what you decide and we will want pics
