Lol I know but.. I want to hear from the regulars on here. not from old threads or from the umnitza people them selfs. I want to see if there current product is good fitment or not.

By searching and reading posts, you'll be able to formulate an impression on fitment. "Regulars" also post their experiences.

Aftermarket add-on plastic parts generally do not fit well enough to satisfy a fastidious owner. And Umnitza tends to get poor marks for customer service.

Generally speaking, from what I've read here on the subject, you get what you pay for.

I have not had problems ordering stuff from Umnitza.

That said, the QC on these Chinese-made knock-off body parts can vary tremendously. I've seen people who've been perfectly satisfied and others who have had serious fitment problems.

It will never fit as good as the OEM bumper. Its the rule of assembly lines.

I can tell if a bumper is OEM or aftermarket trash with one quick glance personally, but I doubt the majority of people can.

I have one and I think it fits and looks great! I know you may find some Umnitza bashing threads but they have done well by me and I will use them again.

Also remember, there is an unadvertised sale if you call in and speak with Matt.

The site says the upgraded urethane fits better. They will also paint it if you call. Let us know how much painting costs

umnitza 05-14-2013 12:50 PM

painting is now available on the site without calling in:)

Looking into getting the M5 front bumper. My car has the nozzles for fluid on my OEM bumper and I want to have that on the M5 bumper. Do the Umnitza bumpers include this or is this something I would need to remove from my OEM bumper and install of the new one?

umnitza 05-26-2013 08:14 PM

You would remove your nozzles and punch a small hole that is already marked out on the back of the bumper.
