Mein Auto: 2007 M5
pre-painted OEM bumper for 07 M5

Hi Everyone,

I am new to this group. I recently purchased a nice 2007 M5. I was getting the car detailed at a local shop where the guy works only on high end cars. He just texted me and said that the front bumper was badly repainted and the previous owner didn't do a good job. I am kindly asking everyone to suggest where I can go to buy a "pre-painted" OEM bumper for my M5. I know the dealers don't sell them. Is there a reasonable place one can recommend where I can get the OEM part and it is factory painted along with the sensors? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

If you take it to any reputed body shop in your area, they'll be able to fix it. Why buy a new bumper due a bad paint job?
Moreover, pre-painted will not perfectly match rest of the car because of color matching and blending issues.

A good body shop that deals with premium cars most certainly can do a fabulous job. Ask your BMW dealer for a recommendation.

Most body panels are not prepainted. They are almost always done by the body shop. Like mustaine said - find a good body shop and they should match/paint it easily.
