Mein Auto: passat wagon 4motion
530xi front bumper M5

Hey guys,

I'm new to bimmerfest. I current drive a VW passat 4motion wagon but I'm upgrading to a 2006 530xi touring very soon. I would like to do some body upgrades to it. Nothing crazy but I was wondering if I can fit the M5 front bumper and what not on the 530xi wagon?

Thanks,

OEM M5 front bumper will fit, but won't look quite right. The M5 front (fenders and bumper) are 10mm wider than non-M cars. You can always get a replica M5 front bumper and save a good deal of money.
Here is mine (previous car), got the front bumper from trinityautosport.com - great vendor and great service:

No problem, Trinity also has the side skirts and M-tech or M5 style rear bumpers, if you want them as well. Tell Joe I sent you, he will take good care of you.
