F01 MSport Bumper on E65/E66?

Hey guys is there any way to retrofit the F01 M-Sport Bumper on a E65/E66?

Is this possible to do or is there any aftermarket available?

You can do anything you want with the body of a car depending on how much $$ you wish to spend.

The overall look of the F01/02 is because of it's newer updated body lines vs. our softer ones. If you want something more aggressive, there are a few bodykits like ACS, Hamann and such.

I saw Two 66 one white with a f01/02 diffuser and muffler tips one said it cost him $750 in New York queens: he said they have to separate the muffler and stretch by adding a pipe to the oither side to complete the look and the diffuser and tips were like $350 online. Wish I knew the name os the shop.

I had also look in the m sport bumper of the f01 /02 coz it was cheaper but that series the grill is on the bumper and the e65/66 the grill is attached to the hood of the car.. so I change to go back to alpina but Am thinking about retrofitting an m6 rear bumper with custom exhaust tips like the lexus 460 to complete the look also retrofitting m5 mirriors...

This was the first attempt at this and it came out good.

Still debating on what to do with the rear.Decision is still up in the air on what combinations i will use (prefacelift trunk/facelift trunk vs facelift bumper cover/FBC + F02 msport accents)

Bump?
Part Deux

Front bumper rework. Original bumper was too low. Planning to lower the car on coilovers in the near future.
Rear bumper welding with the late model 7 series msport bumper

I have actually seen Tall Orders 7 in person and Yes!! it looks sick. The only thing is that it's super low so any speed bumps or dips have to be avoided at all costs.

I have stopped counting the $, for its discouraging. The parts don't come cheap or easy, and i have had to pay full retail for some of the pieces. As per labor, i will know when its done. just know that its not for the faint of heart (or the shallow of pockets).
