Mein Auto: E46 M3 & E36/4/5
I just got mine on a couple weeks ago, and I love it.
it just depends, they are all replica bumpers, so just try to look for one that includes more than just the bumper, for example: comes with the lower grille, mouldings, and the hardware for the lip installation, and the lip spoiler.
the one you posted says it doesnt include the moulding or grille, and if you go to the $tealer, then your gonna end paying so much.

Note the fine print: shipping $140. At that total price you are getting close to the dealer cost for a factory M bumper. The cost for a replacement factory bumper for my 318ti is going to be $364 less 10% for BMWCCA discount, not including the extras.

I wondered about this - don't these non-OEM M-bumpers fit poorly on the E36? One of the guys fitting my tyres looked at my car and said he liked it, and the M3 bumpers he praised and said it's nice they are OEM as non originals never fit so good. Is this really true?

I know my car is missing front lip spoiler (the rubber bit) and I entertained an idea of may be adding it and seen some from USD60 as non OEM items, I thought if those are gonna fit my OEM bumper or I should order from dealer?... Can think of good reason for buying OEM bumber but not a piece of rubber, especially not one which I think makes the car look a "little" bit too much for my taste (same with M3 mirrors).

Just be careful with the Ebay guys. There are some quality bumpers out there that have all of the mounting brackets and such but many are just cheap knockoffs with bare internals meaning you have to fabricate your own mounting system.

Ours will mount just like an OEM bumper and comes with an integrated and removable lip for a bit of a different look.
