Bumper upgrade to M-Sport in 2010 750LI - Possible?

I need to have my bumper replaced and I figured, while they were at it, that I might upgrade to an M-Sport. I do have side cameras, a night vision cameras and park distance control.

Does anyone know if this is possible and, if so, if it's a big deal to do?

Thanks!

Michael

If you plan to convert the front, you should do the back as well, M-sport in the front without the rear looks ackward and incomplete, and people would tell there is work done to it, and most likely from an accident.

I've asked in two different BMW deales and there's no M-retrofit available, at least not officially.
One of them told me that there's not even a single part "M-bumper" that's available to be ordered o.O Got me kinda confused.

Yes, you can order the bumper from the dealer but you need all the parts to do the install.

And imo if you have a black 7er I wouldn't really upgrade the rear, you can't really tell the difference between the original and m sport rear.

Here's a reference link for the parts you need;

Front:

I agree about the rear bumper not being a showstopper, regardless of color actually..

Btw the dealer mentioned something about the different form/level of the air vents, an that they also need to be replaced in case of the M front bumper, so that should be all taken into account..

I would attempt it and like was said the rear bumper isn't anyting too special, especially if your car is black

I will try to be patient enough until BMW releases an official retrofit kit, which should have asolution for the air vents and the foglights.
