Question Help Identifying Some Mods on a 2011 528i

I'm looking into buying a 528i and both the front bumper and the rims have been replaced so I was wondering if anybody could recognize these aftermarket parts from the pics. I'm not into modding cars so I'm not sure how reasonable my request is but have a go at it if the pictures look familiar.

Ok, color me confused but these may actually be OEM afterall. I found a link with a picture of this same bumper and the company claiming that they are selling bumper lips for these OEM bumpers.



And then I found this link...

From the picture that car looks completely stock. The only thing i see is that they painted the stock wheels black.

Since M sport are so popular and common these days, it makes the non-sport OEM bumper looks modded.

I think you guys are right. I was looking on google for F10 pictures and almost all the pictures that came up had the M bumper and I stupidly assumed that this was some after market bumper.

Now the wheels, I've been looking for stock F10 wheels to see pictures like these but I'm comping up empty. Are you certain these are stock?

Most F10s you see on the internet has some form of 19s. Those are 18s and are indeed factory. When you search (google) for pics type in "2012 528i". I saw a white one with those wheels.

The wheels are stock. Style 328 (18 inch), which were offered with the optional sport package. I have them on my car in the original color.

Help Identifying Some Mods on a 2011 528i

I put on some M5 style wheels on mine with a gunmetal finish. Just switched the stock tires over. Kept the stock wheels for when I sell the car. I don't have an m sport but the wheels give a nice sporty look IMHO. Most non BMW people think my car is an M5 at first glance.
