[Z4] BMW front aero bumper

I just saw the aerodynamic kit online for the Z4, and I must say I am impressed. Few questions for anyone who knows:

1) 3.0si fog lights are the rectangle jobs, but the aero ones are the old round-type. Do you need to buy new lights and fixtures?

2) Is the rear diffuser stick on?

3) how much would painting side skirts and a front bumper be?

TIA!

the aero bumper was designed pre-facelift & thus utilizes the standard pre-facelift fogs, so you'd have to buy new ones

ridgeway: any idea/recollection how much the fog lamps and installation parts cost?

also: any opinions on the facelift bumper vs the aero bumper? Every time i look at my car i feel like it's smiling at me.

i don't have a clue on the cost- insurance paid for it

i think it's hte #1 improvement that can be done to the z next to wheels

the stock bumper as you said gives a doppy non-aggressive look, while the aero is much more aggressive
the post-facelight is alot better than pre-facelift imo though

it does effectivly reduce ground clearance a bit though, just fyi, due to the corners being slightly lower, and the entire piece sticks out several inches farther, so you have to reduce the angle w/approaching speed bumps & such
