Great idea! I did this, and now I see the difference. The M Sport rear bumper looks a bit more aggressive, but not a HUGE difference from the non-M Sport bumper.

Also - I'm sure you've considered this but would you be happy with having one sport bumper and one non-sport bumper? I wouldn't and I'm not usually fussy about that sort of stuff...
I didn't look into the cost yet to have the bumper painted. I would be okay with having one M Sport bumper and one non-M Sport bumper. If anything, now I am starting to think about replacing the front bumper with the M Sport bumper instead.

Not sure yet what I am going to do with the exhaust. I really want the quad Eisenmann exhaust. Maybe I will just keep the bumper I have and cut a hole in the passenger side for the second muffler.
