OEM front bumper conversion (base to M) parts list

As evident in the before and after photos, the conversion is complete. I'm placing this post to be able to show the parts list it took to get from base-model to M front bumper in case anyone wants to shop for the parts themselves. I'm very happy with the change. Enjoy!

All parts are OEM. The only place I saved big bucks by doing my own shopping is with the bumper cover

The bumper cover $300, plus $70 shipping (Greyhound lost it, then found it and finally got it to me) on eBay (unused, but painted, badly, the wrong color)
M sport grilles $125 from a fellow forum member
Roundel $0, re-used
all of the other parts ($400) are either from getBMWparts.com or my local BMW parts shop which gave to me the same price as getBMWparts.com
Wasted money shipping some parts I ordered that I did not need back to getBMWparts.com ($100)
Prep, paint and install at West Coast Specialties about $780. The next customer at WCS for this project will save some money because of mistakes I made with some parts that were not needed that they tried to use and one part I had not provided which stopped work. I wasted 1.5 hours of their time, and I paid for it.

With my parts list, go to any online BMW parts site, fill the shopping cart, print it, and take it to your local BMW parts department and ask them to beat the price. You may be surprised.

I lost $100 on shipping $200 of wrong parts back for a refund. That shipping cost was an unexpected downside to shopping online. My local BMW guy took back any parts I did not end up using, for nothing more than the gas and time to get there.

The final cost will be unknown until I have sold my original bumper. Only then will I be able to close out the "books" on this project.

Regards,
MWPos

You had painted reflectors on the original cover?

I don't think I've ever seen that before. Are you selling the old cover?

I did paint the side reflectors and the grille surrounds (rings) on my original bumper and yes, I am eager to sell it. Structurally it is a 10/10. No damage. Never. Cosmetically, I'd call it 8/10 on the grille rings and 9/10 for the rest of the bumper.
This is the link to my listing:

There are several parts from my original bumper's installation (bumper-to-body parts)which I'll also have available for sale, but I have not yet double-checked the parts numbers and therefore do not want to post them yet.

You should have no problem selling it - that's a fair price. Good luck.
