The one on the left. Also the one on the right will also require different front fenders.

LTBMW can custom make an M6 style bumper for the F10. This pic shows the F30 version, but they can make you an F10 version.

Thanks for replying! Any reason that you prefer the left one? I'm considering to change mine to the right, together with all necessary parts. Need advice!

Thanks. Are they still in business? I couldn't access their website.

The picture I posted is M5's bumper. Are you sure it requires different fenders? I was told by the dealer that the total price is $19xx.xx., and the front bumber is $14xx.xx. And the fog lights etc need replacement. But they didn't mention about the fenders.

I definitely prefer the one on the right. I like it but I think the M Sport bumper looks slightly more Japanese (origami) where as the M5 looks more German.
