Cool X5 rear bumper

What up Peeps? I would like to know if it is possible to replace my current stock 3.0 X5rear bumper with a 4.0 rear bumper?
Why?
It looks more sporty.

Never heard of it
If you're talking about the 4.4i, yes you can. But no it isn't more sporty since they are the same part.
If you're talking about the 4.6is or 4.8is, yes you can too. Or you can slap the rear bumper spoiler on your 3.0i and voila!

Do you mean the M-Tech bumper?



If so then yes it's a simple removal and reinstall process. HERE is a link to the conversion kit.
