What bumper do I have and where can I get a replacement?

Silly question but can someone tell me what bumper this is on my 2007 335i coupe? There are M-techs, M series, Lci bumpers..

My bumper has seen better days and I want to find a budget friendly replacement that is a perfect fit (or close to it as possible) that is a direct replacement of the style.

Mayan,

I've already had it repainted once so it would cost me quite a few to have it professionally stripped and repainted. It also had a plate on it at one time and the shop that filled the holes did an average job filling them so if you look closely you can see the repair.

Honest question... why would it cost more on the second repaint than on the first time? The procedure is the same, isn't it?

I had my holes filled in, I got a great price at a little over $200 (it helped that I already had concurrent PDR jobs from the same business), it is completely imperceptible for me, and that was even after I had already expanded the holes quite a bit for a pair of bumper plugs.
