F30 M Sport Bumper Install - Time Lapse Video

Wondering what it takes to install an M Sport bumper on your F30 3 Series? Turner Motorsport upgraded their Project 335i from the factory Sport Line bumper to M Sport Spec using all factory parts. For anyone looking to do a DIY on this installation be ready for a lot of work. BMW specs 6 labor hours to do the full retrofit. There is a lot of parts to be taken on and off, doing this on the floor of your garage with out the befit of a lift and a chest of mechanics tools.

F30 3 series M sport conversion

The difference in the look of the F30 is dramatic. The stock front bumpers are subtle and understated, the M sport is powerful and aggressive. Just the front M Sport bumper completely changes the look of the car. This is a highly recommend visual upgrade for the F30 3 Series. It is not the cheapest with parts and paint running around 2K but every time you see your car you know it was money well spent.

So looks like Msport line does have an extra radiator on the driver's side. Wonder what it's used for.

What they installed is an intercooler on the front passenger side. Stock the F30 utilizes an engine to coolant oil heat exchanger located near the airbox in the engine bay.
