I talked to people and they say it's a good deal. What do you think?
That is a great deal for sure.

But if you get rear ended, even at 10 mph in a parking lot by some grandma, you will not be thinking it was a great deal. Here is a 3 series with the rear bumper skin removed. Try to imagine getting hit with the reinforcement bar removed. The 6er has shock absorbers in the mounts for the reinforcement bar which will obviously do nothing without the bar installed.
Straight lines are for fast cars...turns are for fast drivers
'04 M3 - track
'06 650i Cab - daily driver
'02 Highlander - kid hauler
'01 330Ci - winter beater
