MSPORT Bumper - Help Avoiding Rookie Mistakes

Hello everyone, I'm new to this group - just purchased my 1st BMW and over the past month I've caught the fever... love this car and all the possibilities!

I appreciate any insight you guys can provide regarding my decision to replace my stock LCI bumper with an Mtech/Msport bumper.
I want to make sure I avoid making a rookie mistake!

So...Some background:

My Car: 2010 Arctic White E90 LCI Sedan



Please feel free to add something if I'm neglecting any mission critical details.

Questions....

1.) Mtech/MSport Bumper: Is every MTECH/MSPORT Bumper created equal?
I know some (not all) sold on Ebay are cheap ****e and have fitment issues. ...But I'm wondering...are there slight differences across the various brands that produce this product. Is every Mtech/Msport cut to the identical angular proportions?
In some photos it appear's they vary slightly - sometimes a little more curved around the corners. But That could be me. Thoughts?

2.) What's your opinion for the "vendor of choice" for a Mtech/Msport, and why? Can I go non OEM and still get a high quality product?

3.) Do I need to purchase any additional components that are sold separately to insure the body shop can successfully install?

4.) Should I purchase a pre-painted bumper? Or primed?

5.) Will the Black Kidney grills on my current stock LCI E90 bumper fit with the NEW MTECH LCI bumper?

6.) Any suggestions on what to do with the Stock LCI E90 bumper after the install? I'd like to sell it- its in mint condition... Any suggestions and whats a fair price?

7.) any other considerations or recommendations?

Guys I know there's a lot here. Thank you for taking the time to help!!
