Ebay M-Tech front bumper?

I am debating whether I should buy the ebay M-Tech front bumper or not. Has anyone purchased the bumper off ebay?
- Is it a direct bolt on?
- How is the quality?
- Is it possible to get an exact color match to car?

We have them in stock.
The quality is great.
Bolt on
And you can get it painted at your local shop. Be careful on eBay, there are a LOT of bumpers out there now being copied from China and they are very poor quailty and fitment, and they are being sold as the better ones.

I got my bumper from Umnitza and am really happy with it. To be honest the primer coat on mine was crap so spend a little extra $$$ to have it sanded down and primed with some good stuff, but even then I am still well ahead on cost from the OEM.

I don't have an issue with that but please be aware, grabbing public photos and using them for commerce without written permission is highly illegal. I'd really recommend you ask first (i'm a professional photographer and deal with this on a normal basis) instead of saying "please post them" then grabbing them for your site.

The DMCA allows for written notice to be given to you and will give you 24 hours to remove the infringed photos or your site can be shut down.

Again, i'm happy to let you use them but ANY photo, even in the public domain, is protected by copyright laws which are designed to protect the work from this exact scenario.

Very sorry, should have asked for sure.

The rear bumper is primered if you get the Mtech bumper, not the M5tech rear.
We have them + we have brighter with the ICE VXX unit we sell.

I've got a few options for you to consider here as well if you'd like to take a look at our front/rear bumpers we have for you:


E60 M5 Replica Front Bumper w/ Fog Lights


Mtech E60 Rear Bumper

These bumpers are made from Polypropylene, an OEM like material which will bend slightly upon small impacts, not crack or shatter like fiberglass does, so make sure you get a quality product before you click that checkout button. For any further questions, don't hesitate to PM/Email or call me directly at 714.582.3330 extension 8002, and ask for Jurrian!

If you have PDC, we are running an amazing special now for $275 for fronts and rears. Our prices can't be beat as we are a direct to factory retailer.

275 for the Mtech front bumper? Does that include shipping? I am looking for a Mtech front bumper with PDC and fog lights.

No, shipping is extra - $60 - we have the bumper in stock but if you have a 545i, you can reuse your bumper.

Hey there Umnitza,
I just wanted to ask you ... i have a 2006 530i e60 and thinking of changing only the front and side skirts to mtech .. now my question is will it look nice with the stock rear bumper and moreover will the side skirt align with the rear stock bumper and how much do these mods cost with shipping?
My rear bumper is already fitted with an ac schnitzer 86mm exhaust and i dont like the mtech rear bumper look ... so i thought the side skirts and front bumper look real nice...
regards
elias

Elias - replied to your email, but we have to be careful, are you in Lebanon (city in US) or Lebanon country.
If it's the country the only thing we can ship to you is the side skirts.

Sorry, we no longer offer that price.
However, we are offering discounts if you purchase the complete kit of up to $100 over buying it all piece by piece.
